Podcasts

There are a number of podcasts targeted at indie authors. Here are my favorites:

The Creative Penn hosted by Joanna Penn. This is my all-time favorite writing related podcast. Joanna is a savvy and enthusiastic author entrepreneur who provides fantastic business and marketing information. Her optimism is my antidote to the negativity often expressed in the industry. Plus, I love the way she explores new niches and trends in publishing.

How Do You Write hosted by Rachael Herron. Fascinating interviews where authors reveal details about their writing processes.

The Self-Publishing Podcast with Johnny B. Truant, Sean Platt, and David Wright. The language is definitely not suitable for work, and they often go off-topic, but these guys are dedicated to making their author careers stick and aren't afraid to experiment. Their stories of what's working and not working for their business, and their future plans for optimizing their business, are bound to give indie authors some good ideas. Worth listening to even if just for the banter.

The Rocking Self-Publishing Podcast hosted by Simon Whistler. Interviews with the top authors in the self-publishing industry. Focuses mostly on the stories of how the authors rose to success. Valuable for those looking for inspiration from others who have achieved their goals.
