  • Awful sound quality

    It’s bad enough that the first fifteen minutes are just rambling, but how can anyone hit publish with that dreadful sound.

  • Educational and Entertaining!

    I’ve listened to the Self Publishing Show podcast for years and Mark, James and their guests continue to provide hugely valuable content. I listen while I drive, and frequently have to leave myself audio messages of great tips to return to later. The SPF podcast has informed my fiction writing almost from the beginning. I am a student in both the Self Publishing 101 and the Ads for Authors courses, as well. I know I’m gushing, but I can’t recommend these courses and podcast high enough! Thanks t... more

  • Interesting and informative

    I enjoyed the podcast with Dave Chessen about his Atticus program as it is another writer tool we can use. I enjoy this podcast every week with Mark and James, as they know what writers need, and are full of great ideas for writer inspiration and growth. Keep up the amazing work.

  • #297: Give readers what they want

    Loved this show!! (And so many others!) I recently found your show and appreciate your applicable tips and proven techniques. Question: does Melanie have a list of the questions she asked her readers? (Or did I space that part?) Would love to know what she surveyed so I can tweak for my own novels and readers. Thanks again for a great show for writers!
