There are a lot of messages out there about what you need to do to insure your success in publishing. You must have 793 followers, post at least a photo an hour on Instagram, and NEVER, ever, EVER design your own covers… you get the point. This month we’re offering our tips on how to wade through all this advice and figure out what is best for you and your career. Sometimes this includes breaking all the “rules”.
Here’s the awesome article that Alexis references in the show: Self-Publishing Myths– Busted. (Umm.. does that title make anyone else sing “tin roof– rusted” in their head, No, just me?). And here’s another one Mary-Chris likes a lot about one author’s publishing journey (see especially her “takeaways” and comment about fairy dust near the end).
And what was First Draught drinking, this month? Alexis and Mary-Chris opted for beer and Julia made herself a Negroni. Check out all the details on the Drink of the Month Page.
Finally, we’d love to deliver First Draught right to your inbox every month. Sign up here to receive our monthly newsletter with links to the show. And if you love listening to us as a podcast we’d be so appreciative if you would leave us a review to help other authors find us!
