It doesn’t matter how long we’ve been publishing, sometimes there are gaps in our knowledge. In this episode, we’re going to look at:

  • Why you need a business mindset to succeed as an indie author
  • How preorders work on different platforms
  • The benefits of defining success
  • Why you need a body of work, not one book, to make a living
