EPISODE 29: Diversifying your writing income

Welcome to the Rage Against the Manuscript podcast. In this episode I unpick why you might like to consider widening the scope of how you earn your income as an author, and share my experiences with diversifying my income streams.


Listen on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

In this episode:

  • 3 reasons why you should consider diversifying your writing income.

  • The 3 (and sort of 4) ways writers earn income.

  • Why royalty-based income is the goal.

  • How my diverse income streams helped me quit my day job.

  • Some of the pros and cons of different income streams.

    “Many writers can't rely on royalty income alone, so cobble together a full-time income from many different sources, and thrive under that creative, hectic, and varied structure.
