12 Best of the Best in Author & Publishing Podcasts in 2015

YGtBP-logoRevOH MY … it’s the last content blog of the year. How could that have happened? Next year, I will be adding guest blogs to the mix. For this final, I dipped into the 52 original radio shows this past year:  AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing. I’m so grateful to the 3,000,000 plus downloads that evolved over the year from our many listeners! 

This is usually a quiet week for many—planning, cleaning up and regrouping—an ideal to invest a few hours of your time just for you and your book.

I’ve selected 12 of my favorite shows this past year that are ideal to re-listen to or visit for the first time—links included. The information with my guests is meaty and will root you into author success for the coming year. Download to your tablet, smartphone or computer–each show runs approximately 57 minutes.

And I encourage you to support the many sponsors who have supported AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing:
