Happy new year!! This month our episode is all about how we plan for the new year and what’s great about it is that we are covering ALL ends of the spectrum on this topic. Julia’s got quarterly goals, Alexis has broad overarching goals for the year, and Mary Chris is setting some intentions and running some experiments. But we’re all on the same page about “doing the work,” taking care of yourself, and staying flexible and open to the magic of the journey no matter what your plans are. Wherever you are with this topic– there’s something for you in this show:

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”.
The show is also available as a podcast on iTunes or Soundcloud.
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.
