About This Show
Want to get your words out into the world without contending with agents, publishers, or any of the other gatekeepers in traditional publishing? There's never been a better time to become a writer, and to be in charge of your own destiny rather than jumping through hoops to please the Powers that Be.
Self-publishing ninjas David Wright and Sean Platt -- who have manufactured a publishing machine around Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing platform -- join popular blogger and author Johnny B. Truant to explore everything related to getting published in today's new DIY digital publishing frontier. This isn't artsy talk... we're business guys with no-BS strategies to help you make self-publishing a rewarding reality. Submit your questions at SelfPublishingPodcast.com!

Self Publishing Podcast #150 – Story Research Made Awesome
3 days ago
The dreaded “R” word, the one task that sends some writers away screaming just at the mention of it—RESEARCH. Do you shy away from research? Do you hate it? Do you avoid writing certain yarns in your story garden just because you’re paralyzed by the gobs of research you know you’ll have to suffer through? Or, on the flip side, do you love and embrace a deep and wondering investigation, so much so that you may never get around to actually writing anything?
Either way, this episode may be just what you need. It’s fascinating to see how Johnny, Sean, and Dave see research in a very different light, and how researching a story may not be nearly as scary as you think.
And, even if you don’t care about research as a topic, this episode is worth listening to just to hear Dave’s giddy ayahuasca jokes!
