SPA Girls Podcast – EP277 – Answering Newbie Questions

Today we’re responding to questions from listeners who are just starting their self-publishing journey. From earning expectations to how to learning “All The Things” and being overwhelmed, we’ve got you covered!

Some of questions answered:

  • What type of writing SHOULD I focus on? Is genre important for good earnings?
  • Are my expectations realistic? How am I going to support myself during this process? How much can I expect to earn?
  • What do I have to know about self-publishing, there’s so much to learn! Can I just write and pay someone else to do the rest?
  • How do I build a platform? What even IS a platform?
  • What’s the one piece of advice you’d give someone starting out today?

Remember, every single step of self-publishing is covered here on the podcast in detail – make sure to search on our website for the topic, and the episodes will come right up.
