Episode 170: Kenda’s Big Book Adventure

Kenda Macdonald has just published her first book and is fizzing with excitement – so I tied her to a chair and made her talk about it. This episode contains angst, truthy stories, a heroic victory, a fantastic idea for selling more copies of your book (or product or thing)… and sad parsnips. If you’re thinking of writing a book but you don’t yet believe you can listen to this.
