On today’s show, we had a special guest in Garrett Robinson, who we figured could represent all of you out there in self-publishing land who had questions for us. We picked Garrett because he always has a ton of questions, and having him on was easier than filing a restraining order.
Live from his closet, here are just a few of the questions Garrett asked us and that we then discussed while stupid jokes were tossed about and Sean and I yelled angrily about Garrett making us be on the podcast in the evening:
1. Do you need a publishing house, or can you publish under your own name?
Short answer: you don’t need a house. I (Johnny) don’t have one. Sean says you might consider it if you want to act like a publisher. Whatever that means.
2. What’s the best way to price serials?
Answer: It depends. Listen up to get the full details.
3. What is the best timing for KDP Select promotions?
Answer: Undecided. Sean wants to try running his promos on Saturdays and Sundays, while I still tend to go with Tuesdays. It may not matter. There was much confusion about the timing of sending emails.
4. What’s the best way to collaborate and write fast?
Answer: A bit too convoluted to write out here. I’m also too lazy to listen and find out what we said.
We also took a voicemail from Gareth and did some other dumb stuff. I was tired. The end.
