In the world of self-publishing, things can change overnight. Since we wrote our first Everyday Author’s guide to self publishing podcasts, a whole new slate of shows have popped up, offering a TON of value you won’t want to miss out on. Here’s a few of our favorite podcasts for authors we’ve added to our listening lineup:
