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!

Not releasing single episodes (well, for now, anyway)
