While listening back to the audio of the last show I realised that I have gone a bit native in the world of Marketing Buzzwords, happily talking about “Return-On-Investment Rates” with no extra explanation as to what that means.

In my first solo show for a while I use the information I learnt from my interview with Emmanuel Nataf about how much self-publishing costs to create a spreadsheet to work out exactly how many eBooks you’ll need to sell to cover these costs, get these costs plus a minimum wage and to a comfortable “average” income from an individual book.
In this show I talk again to Emmanuel Nataf from Reedsy about a blog post he wrote about how much self-publishing costs, in terms of editing, cover design and interior layout.
