As I mentioned in my last show this is a special episode where I replay the audio of my interview with James Scott-Bell for the Alliance of Independent Authors Indie Fringe Event for the London Book Fair. This is the audio of that interview.
In this episode, I talk to Facebook expert Andrea Vahl about Facebook advertising. In some ways this is too big a topic for just one episode, but I think this interview gives a good overview of what is available in terms of Facebook advertising.
In this episode I talk to Mark Coker who is the head of Smashwords, the biggest and longest-established of the eBook aggregators. It is the last (for now) of the five show eBook aggregator interview series.
In this show I talk to Mark Schaefer, international speaker and multiple best-selling author about his efforts to get the rights back to his book, the Tao of Twitter, from McGraw-Hill. As a publisher they weren’t keen to do a new edition of the book, which for a social media book, Mark thought was unacceptable. In addition we also talk about the lessons self-publishers can learn from his new book Known.
This week I talk to Dan Wood from Draft2Digital, probably the second best known eBook aggregator after Smashwords. I talk to him about their current offerings and some interesting changes they are making in terms of new efforts to help authors with their marketing.
This episode was much more opportunistic than most. I saw on Adam Croft’s facebook profile that he was number 1 on Amazon in both the UK and US eBook stores, so I thought it would be interesting to interview an author at the “peak of their powers” to find out how he got to number 1 on Amazon. It’s an interesting journey from being a self-published author to being picked up by an Amazon imprint to getting to number 1 in the whole Amazon US store.
In this episode I talk to Justin Renard of Pronoun about why you should consider using Pronoun as your eBook aggregator, especially in the U.S. Pronoun have been in the news as they are very competitive compared to the other eBook aggregators, especially in the US and Canadian markets for Amazon. They actually pay better rates for some books on Amazon than going direct via KDP direct.

Streetlib is an eBook aggregator, publishing services and POD company that’s been relatively unknown (being an Italian company) in the US and UK but offers interesting services and is expanding into the US. I interview Giacomo D’Angelo CEO of Streetlib USA to find out more.
