Mike Faricy on The Author Biz — great show for bare-bones self-pubbers

For those of you indie authors who don’t get to listen to many self-pub podcasts, here’s one with Mike Faricy. He’s a great guest on one of my favorite podcasts. He describes his mostly bare-bones approach to self-publishing, and more importantly, he talks about how his career didn’t take off until he got 5 books into a series. Before that, he’d written 5 standalone novels which didn’t really sell. By book 9 in his series, he switched careers and became a full time author.  I love his attitude: just do the damn work, move forward. Hey, it works for salmon. And like salmon, we all die at the end.

Ah, Mondays … Here’s the link again:

Two new writing/author podcasts for my little collection…

No, you don’t have to go out and immediately listen to them, haha. Is that what you think I’m suggesting every time I post some new podcast? For my part, I’ll be listening to them on my daily commutes and when the wife and I go driving to various places on the weekends (e.g., the grocery store, and thousands of interesting places you can’t even imagine).

Author Strong: indie-centric podcast with an emphasis on craft and achieving publishing success. By indie-centric I mean they have a lot of top-selling indie guests like Libbie Hawker and Robert Chazz Chute. I love how these guests return repeatedly (of course — because they’re good guests!).

taylorstevensshowsm

The Taylor Stevens Show: a new (brand new) podcast with Stephen Campbell of “The Author Biz” and “Crime Fiction FM,” where he co-hosts with NY Times Bestselling author Taylor Stevens. Sure, she’s not an indie author, but she’s doing something I’ve been considering: starting an author podcast. So I’m going to be listening in to see how it goes as I formulate this idea that maybe I’ll create my own show one day.

Discoverability with Kristine Kathryn Rush

stephen_campbellOk, so the interviewer mentions me in the beginning, but I honestly thought it was a great interview for indie authors and recommend listening. This guy Stephen Campbell seems to be knocking them out of the park with his interviews. Last time with Russell Blake, this time with K Rush.
