If you're thinking about writing a book - or are working on one already - you may be wondering whether it's still worth going down the traditional publishing route.  In this episode, I share my recent experience of releasing a book and why I chose to self-publish.

Here's what you'll learn in this episode:

  • Why I chose to become an Indie author
  • Why self-publishing can be better for your business than the traditional route
  • The process I went through to publish my own book
