Today’s Rocking Self-Publishing Podcast episode was an incredible experience. Featuring hybrid author Rachael Herron, it starts off destroying any misconceptions you had about traditional publishing. She got a big 6-figure deal in an auction, and had to split 45k over 3 years (after taxes and the agent’s cut). She’s now making good money self-publishing (2-3k a month, if memory serves me).
The most important part of the podcast happened about 1/2 through, when she got into dealing with motivation issues, writer’s block, super high productivity, good vs. bad writing (for drafts), and the writing/productivity class she gives. Listeners will get a 1/2 price special deal for her class, which is about 40 bucks.
