Thanks Tim Bishop! That is my plan! I am a big sponge! I appreciate it!

Hi Jimmy, and welcome. My take on publishing: It can be quite involved, and there are many possible approaches. On this journey, read as much as you can and glean from others who have been there, but you'll still learn the most by taking a few road trips yourself. Best wishes for a fantastic ride. Tim

Hello everyone! I have been listening to the 48days podcast for a long time but I am new to the 48days community! I am just learning how to navigate myself around the site, but this group caught my attention because I am releasing my first book in a few weeks, and you can never learn enough!

So to all of the writers out there, give me some wisdom. I am self publishing. What did you learn? What do you wish you knew? I have learned a lot from conversations with other authors and from my editor, but I will take any advice and wisdom that you would like to throw my way! Thanks!

Thank you for the flixpress link.  It's been bookmarked for future use. Your promo videos look polished and professional.

Hi Everyone,

I found a new site to create great videos. They have a small selection of free templates and the others are a few dollars. It is an alternative to Animoto.

Here are two promo videos I just created

Thanks to everyone who participated. The free ‘Author Interview’ is now closed for this group. You can always find me on Fiverr.

Hi Ericka,

We are already friends so I guess I’m just going to go ahead and ask for you to add me to the list of the people to interview.

Thank you for this great opportunity,

Hi Everyone

Last day for the Free Author Interview Promo. You do not have to have your interview questions completed by today, but you do have to send me the friend invite here on 48days so we can get the process started.

Hi Everyone,

I have a service that may just interest you. I created a new Blog called “Plan2Win-Author Interviews”.  In a nutshell I will send you interview questions, you answer them and send them back to me.  This is great for us DIYs who do not have an established list or group but would like to build attention to our name and new book outside of our small circle. It is one book promo per interview.

Is this free? Yes, for this group for next three days only (July 20-22) this is in appreciation of you being so encouraging over the years.  Next, I will offer this promo to my E-learning and Teaching Online Group.

What do I have do? Glad you asked. Just “Add me as a Friend” here on 48days and let me know you are interested in the Author Interview.  I will send you back the questionnaire. It is a fillable document.

Here is the link to my Blog:


Some of you may know, I am a seller on Fiverr. Now, this is a new Fiverr gig for me.  You can check it out here: https://www.fiverr.com/plan2win/conduct-an-author-interview-for-my-...

If you miss my free promo days you can always find me on Fiverr.
