Book Talk Radio Club Newsletter July 2017

July 22, 2017

Hi Book Lover!

 

It’s been a busy few months since I launched Book Talk Radio Club. Did you know I launched it because as a self-published author, I know how difficult, time consuming and expensive it can be to market your own work. I was let down very badly at the last minute by a national radio station for an interview that would have reached thousands of potential readers, rather than be downcast by this, I thought to hell with it, I'll do it myself and start an online radio station kind of like talk radio but book talk radio and give my fellow self-published authors the voice they deserve and the marketing and promotion they desperately need. I’m proud to say I have received some wonderful reviews from Book Talk Radio Club’s authors (you can view them here and here). Recently, someone on Facebook told me that self-publishing wasn’t the ‘real deal’ and that any one that self-published couldn’t call themselves a proper author. I disagree with that entirely - I will defend indie authors until the day I die. We have a huge and steep learning curve from writing our books to editing, formatting, pricing (in different currencies and on different sales platforms) and then we have to get out of our safe little writing place and learn how to market and promote our hard work. Indie authors are most definitely the real deal!
