    1. Aww, thanks for the shout-out. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you liked the post.

      I’m intrigued by Joanna Penn’s article on turning a book into a podcast. How is that different than an audiobook? Eager to read to learn more! Curious–is that something you’d ever consider doing with your books Debbie?


      1. My pleasure Kate. So funny you mention Joanna’s article specifically because it has given me ideas. I would definitely think about that. And the difference between the two is that audio books are just that, audio books and podcasting is like a live talk show about whatever subject we choose that can be listened to just like a Youtube video, often no video but audio. πŸ™‚


    1. Thanks John. I like to hand-pick from my readings across the web what I think will be beneficial for my writing friends here. Happy to enlighten you. πŸ™‚


  1. Fabulous!
    I had no idea I could take a screenshot on my phone – it’s something I’ve often wondered about, but never discovered – so very useful! Thanks for sharing such a great bunch of tips, Debby


  2. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful resources, Deb. Much appreciated. First one I’m going to read is Anne’s about “Rogue characters”. Love it. Also, LinkedIn is not a platform I go on very often. I do promote my blog posts there but I don’t do much interaction. I’m off facebook now altogether—no regrets on that.


    1. Hi Lis. I hear you on Linkedin. I don’t spend much time there. Who has time? Lol. Ya, I looked for you so many times on FB, especially when I tag you when I share your posts there. Glad you found something of interest in this post. πŸ™‚ x
