Fully Booked

The Hidden Gems Author Podcast

Episode 72 – Indie Publishing a Tale of Mid-Life Dating and Loss

Hosted by: Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme with special guest Michelle Paris

While the Fully Booked podcast tends to focus on self-publishing, it’s far from the only option for writers looking to get their work published. In today’s episode, Craig and Roland talk to Michelle Paris, whose debut novel, New Normal, launched last month. Loosely based on Michelle’s personal experiences about loss and mid-life dating, New Normal is published by a small, independent publisher. Michelle chose that route after seriously considering self-publishing.

Tune in to discover the journey Michelle went on as she wrote her book and the process that led her to select a small press not only for that first book, but her second novel as well.  There’s lots of valuable insight into difficult questions authors might not consider before they finish writing their book – like how to target the right audience, get the book polished and ready for publication, and how much responsibility to take on in regards to marketing and publicity. If you’ve ever considered working with an independent publisher, this episode will deliver a lot of value and help you in your decision-making process.
