We brought Bobby Blaze (aka Bobby Blaze Smedley) back. This time to discuss self-publishing.
First a disclaimer
I was drinking when I recorded
so sue me if it goes astray…
We recorded on Sunday 12/03/17. That day Jules and I went to brunch with some friends, and those friends are a menace. After several bottles of champagne and a three-hour nap, I figured I was good to record, but alcohol impairs your judgment. I was a little slurry when we recorded so please accept my apologies.
Booby Blaze Smedley
Is uniquely positioned to talk about finding a market for a self-published book. He is a retired pro wrestler who has written two books about his life (see the links).
Some questions covered
- What is a vanity press?
- What steps are involved in self-publishing on Amazon?
- How to work on your social media visibility
- are conventions right for me?
- should people gamble on themselves?
Did Jeremy just try to create a hashtag?
Yes, yes he did. #GiveTilItHelps . We ask that all Indy artists try using this to help each other get the word out about their projects.
