Episode 161: Will Writing A Business Book Make You Rich?

Joe and I answer every budding author’s burning question: if I write a book, will I be in line for a £34 million J K Rowling payday? Answer: probably not. But that doesn’t mean your book won’t pay you handsomely. Just not in the way you might think. Join the Podsters as they wax lyrical on cooking with phalanges, sock-based tea, and the secret joys of writing a book. Plus a FREE bonus Dingle update.
