A Twitterfriend of my mine, JR Murdock, is self-publishing his YA Fantasy novel Astel. He tells me it is partially prompted by this show and the growing interest and success of self-publishing. Especially for eBooks.
Naturally, I had to get him on the show to learn more about his endeavour and what he has learned by doing it himself. He has become quite the resource for DIY publishing. He has also kindly provided a rebate code for his book in case you would like to purchase a copy of your own.

I was also fortunate to get another segment from CA Marshall for “Tips and Typos”. In this segment she talks about query letters. Certainly a shortcoming of mine.
Last but not least, I’ve been hinting about a secret project for several weeks/months. In this episode I actually begin talking about it.
That’s the lineup for today’s show. I hope you enjoy it.
