There are often stories about indie authors making big money in Kindle Unlimited, but there are plenty of authors making multi-six figure incomes by publishing wide. In this interview, I discuss publishing to multiple platforms as well as author mindset and book marketing tips with Adam Croft.
In the intro, I mention the exciting news that Findaway Voices will be distributing to Storytel in 2019 [Findaway blog], plus rumours of a possible bid by Ingram for Baker & Taylor [Publishers Weekly], and Don'ts for Publishers [Publishing Perspectives.]
I give a personal update from Auckland, New Zealand and challenge you to think a little differently this holiday season. You can find all my pictures on Instagram.com/jfpennauthor.
