  1. There seems to be a confusion about the term “indie publishers.” Self-publishing is now often called indie publishing, but it is also a term that might be confused with independent publishing houses that are not involved with self-publishing and do not charge the author any fees. Might be worth discussing in a podcast. Love the show!

  2. This week, the triangle of Dan, Brandon, and Howard, added Erin Roberts to the fold to talk about pitfalls, traps, and other problems that authors may face. Reading fees. Are you a mark? Which group works for you? Accountabilibuddies! Your roles as a writer and as a business person, especially in indie publishing. Read all about it in the transcript, available now in the archives.

  3. You gotta love Brandon’s positivity. I would have been certain it was a scam, but he came up with a story to explain why that “agent” possibly didn’t mean to con him out of $50. xD
