Hi, I’m Carrie Rollwagen, and I published the book The Localist in 2015. Since then, lots of aspiring authors have asked me if they, too, should jump into the world of self-publishing. They have lots of questions, and I have lots of answers — and usually a bunch of follow-up questions as well. The truth is, self-publishing is difficult, and it has a lot of haters (the traditional publishing industry, for one). But it can also be incredible and fulfilling.
So I wanted to talk about all of it — the good, the bad and the ugly of creating and producing your own work. My podcast, Everybody Hates Self-Publishing, will launch late Spring 2017 with weekly episodes that you’ll be able to find on iTunes, Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts. Until then, check out the preview/introduction below. Thanks for listening!
