The forty-seventh episode of the Bailey’s Writing Tips podcast was released today and featured two guest blog posts written by author Paul Hurst, on the topic of eBooks.
Back in September (Sunday 18th), I posted Paul’s blog entitled ‘Ebooks for writers: 101’ and the websites mentioned there were http://www.gutenberg.org, http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/52, http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/10166 and http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/47970.
Then in early January (3rd) this year Paul returned with ‘Free ebooks – friend or foe?’.
Both guests posts can be read in full from this blog’s guest blogs page.
Paul Hurst has run his own companies since the mid 1980s. Small, stable ‘niche’ affairs with the absolute minimum of overheads. Two of the companies cover his work as a musician and performer since the late 70s, and as band leader since the early 80s. Working through his business The Solutions Agency Ltd, Paul provides bookkeeping, accountancy, training and consultancy services to a wide range of small companies, drawing on his experience in banking, County Court, retail, management accounting, advertising, building, civil engineering, importing, engineering and now psychology as a student with the Open University.
I concluded the episode with some news: that I’ve almost escaped my day job to be a full-time writer and that I’d received a wonderful email yesterday from a young lady called Ashleigh who had enjoyed (and very enthusiastic about) my free eShort ‘April’s Fool’. It really made my day.
The podcast is available via iTunes, Google’s Feedburner, Podbean (when it catches up), Podcasters (which takes even longer) or Podcast Alley (which doesn’t list the episodes but will let you subscribe) and this episode lasted 17 minutes.
