The Self Publishing Podcast - DIY Digital Publishing, Kindle Publishing, and Advice for Writers
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!

Everybody loves Kindle, or at least they are trained to think that they have to love it. KDP Select is just making publishing exclusive to Amazon more and more tempting, but not any less frustrating to Johnny (or anyone else with a strong, and reasonable, revulsion to having all your eggs in one basket).
If only there were a publishing company that offered enticing deals, custom coupons, and an otherwise business-savvy setup to help authors sell books.
Wait, that sounds like Kobo! Mark from Kobo came on today to tell us about all the awesome stuff Kobo Writing Life has going on, stuff that will make any indie author start salivating for sure.
You’ll have to listen to the show to hear all the benefits Kobo can offer, plus some hot tips for improving your international sales in Kobo (and everywhere else!).
