EPISODE 30: Understanding reader behaviour

Welcome to the Rage Against the Manuscript podcast. In this episode we look at who are our readers, how they choose books, and how we as self-publishers can use this information to give them more of what they CRAVE.


Listen on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

In this episode:

  • The three types of fiction readers and how they choose and purchase books.

  • How to create loyal readers.

  • Do readers always tell the truth? The answer may surprise you.

  • How to use reviews to study readers.

  • How readers show you what they want.

    “Readers are series-loyal first, genre-loyal second, and author-loyal a distant third."

    Steff Green

    Author of How to Rock Self-Publishing.
