Publishing on a Budget

There’s no way around it. Publishing a book that is presentable enough to ask money for is going to cost some cash of your own. But do you have to break the bank in order to publish a good book?

In this conversation, J. and Zach discuss ways you can publish your book on a budget. What are the expenses you can avoid, and which are essential to helping your book succeed? And is it possible to provide a professional product on a shoestring budget?

The Career Author Podcast is a podcast where co-authors J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon share their struggles and successes as full-time authors, advice for improving your writing craft, and honest discussions of what it takes to build a successful career as an author.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • What costs to consider
  • How to determine what to spend money on
  • Tools you need and probably don’t need

Also, Zach recommends a method to gain clarity on your creative life.
