Glad Jas is still podcasting, since his interview of me a couple episodes ago.
No one’s better placed than Jas to help the next wave of new indie authors that he hosted in his first book!
Listened on Apple Podcasts
7’ inner resistance on personal projects 11’ “The war of art” the belly of the beast 14’ closer analogy might be midwife-ing a baby? KDP = Kindle direct publishing + Spark? 17’ feels like a wrap party / awards night 21’ I totally would expect a paper release to be as big if not a bigger challenge. E-book has always been considered something of a shortcut/easier version 22’ “I think halfway through who knows” nope 24’ nooo don’t try to format yourself!! Obsolete skill. Big risk using Atticus.io beta 31’ turn out the laptop is the problem. First time “semblance” of control was more accurate. Steve Jobs still has as much control as he could hope over iPhone even though he’s not in the weeds of ARM chips 40’ yeah but are you sure that entrepreneur/hustle culture doesn’t mean that they are going to reject external help? 42’ consultation call with a traditional publisher, and they invited Jas to submit (2-4 wk feedback) and spitballed release plan 47’ I respect J for not being afraid to look for industry help, like his flatmate in Mallorca. It’s the reason both of us don’t want to get too comfortable with the ‘indie’ badge. 49’ “standing 10 toes deep” in entrepreneur: own the business smarts 53’ “publishing studio”: Champion entrepreneurs and changemakers 55’ “i call BS” on the dichotomy! 56’ podcaster girl from Telegram 59’ “Full control over the authors rights” and “we will help them write it”. Count me in! 63’ is it just me or does Porter’s music sound vaguely Latin?
