The Self Publishing Podcast

During the night, I write. During the day, I consume all things writing-related. That includes How-to books, popular and classic fiction, audio books and the like. But I also listen to writing podcasts. I was a big fan of I should be Writing with Mur Lafferty. Shows like Writing Excuses and The Dead Author Podcast became new and exciting voyages into the thick art and craft that is writing.

Then, about a month ago, I stumbled upon The Self Publishing Podcast. The hosts are Johnny B. Truant, Sean Platt and David Wright  -  three eccentric writers who talk non-stop about not only the creation of a story idea but the business and marketing side of self publishing. It's one of the most valued free podcasts I listen to on my iPod. The shows run an hour long. These guys have 55 episodes and I've listened to all of them. 

So, when the time came to ask a question, I jumped at the chance.

Be warned, these fellas are mighty explicit...but very funny as well. I was thankful for their advice and decided to change the pricing on some of my ebooks. For the longest time, I've been using the 99 cent price model as a crutch. But seeing as how that isn't netting me much, I've decided to take the chance and put the books up with a standard $2.99 price.

You can hear my voicemail question at the 54 minute mark.

Hope you enjoy these guys and check out some of their books.

I've already read Fat Vampire, halfway into The Bialy Pimps and almost done with Unicorn Western. And, if you're in the mood for a The Stand-like series, check out Yesterday's Gone. Not only are these guys a blast to listen to but how can you not be impressed by their prolific drive and their gargantuan library of titles?
