Episode 1: Intro and Welcome

In this first episode, I talk about what you can expect from the podcast. Basically:

  • I try to answer self-publishing and writing-related questions
  • There’s a new episode every week
  • I’m the person talking, with some interviews thrown in for good measure
  • How to submit questions: 978-48-ASK-ME

I hope you enjoy this — it’s a big project, but it’s been fun so far to work on the intros, outros, and content!

First, a huge thank you to those of you who completed the 2014 Reader Survey! There has been GREAT feedback from everyone so far, and while I’ll spend the next few weeks really crunching the data, it looks like there were a few major points from everything. Generally:

  • You have questions/problems and want to know more
  • You wouldn’t be opposed to paying money for whatever that solution is, but would love more free advice, tips, and help

I’m working on it. 

As I mentioned in that post, I want to provide massive value to you, so that you are able to achieve your writing and authorship goals. I want to help with whatever it is you’re struggling with.

Also, I want to really up the ante for the free information about self-publishing that’s floating around here. For that reason, as you may have guessed from the title of the post, I’m launching a podcast.

What’s a podcast?

If you haven’t heard of podcasting before, it’s essentially an internet radio show that’s syndicated and made available on podcast networks like iTunes, Stitcher, and BlackBerry.

You can subscribe and download episodes, save them for later, and generally play them at your leisure. There are podcasts on literally thousands of topics, each with a unique flavor, sound, and style.

“Self-Publishing Answers” is going to be hosted by yours truly, featuring questions sent in by you, the reader/listener. I’ve already got a head start on this thanks to the earlier blog-only Self-Publishing Answer series, so I already have content for the first six episodes.

How to subscribe

The podcast isn’t quite ready in iTunes yet, so you’ll have to listen in your browser to this first episode (embedded below). In a few days though, do check out the iTunes page and subscribe to get the latest episodes sent right to your phone/computer/device.

I’ll add a link to the podcast in the sidebar of the blog, and I’ll be sending out an email to update everyone as well.

Let me know what you think!

In the comments section, would you let me know what you think of all this? Will you subscribe and listen? What questions would you like to hear answered?
