Since many who love to read are also authors or aspiring authors, today I want to share a tool that I have found very helpful for me as an author. Mark Coker of Smashwords has just launched a podcast that is free and outlines trends and best practices for indie authors who publish ebooks.
The Smart Author podcast is available on Apple Podcasts. Click here for details.
What I have noticed since we began publishing ebooks in 2012 is that hardly anyone can give you authoritative information about how to become a successful indie author. While authors in general are very generous about sharing their opinions and experiences, this podcast goes beyond individual experience and draws on huge amounts of data gathered from Smashwords authors and analyzed to distill useful and timely suggestions for indie authors.
Are you an aspiring author? Or have you published your book? What resources have helped you the most? Please comment if you have listened to the Smart Author podcast and let me know what you think of it.
