Like many indie authors, I soon discovered Joanna Penn. Her podcasts, books, videos and courses are packed with useful advice and tips and this book is no different. Using her own experiences of good and not-so-good choices on the path to author success, Ms Penn not only has a lot of essential advice on running a business as an author, but is able to illustrate the effects of her own decisions from her experience, rather than simply dishing up generic information. With its subtitle ‘How to be an Author Entrepreneur’ this is the perfect book to help new and established authors through the minefield of keeping on top of all the stuff that gets in the way of writing.
I bought both the audio and paperback versions of this as, while listening to Joanna’s voice is very nice, it’s great to have the paperback as a handy reference backup.
For more info about Joanna Penn’s fiction and non-fiction, check her website, The Creative Penn.

I have seen this name around, Colin. Thanks for this recommendation.
Worth checking her website out – she has lots of free stuff (which is always nice).
sounds like a must-read!
Essential, I’d say 😉
