Podcast


Join bestselling indie author Steff Green for the Rage Against the Manuscript podcast, where we explore how to tell your story, find your readers, and build a badass author brand.

Dig into writing, self-publishing, and marketing on the Rage Against the Manuscript podcast


A new episode is going up every week. In each episode, I'll answer a writing or self-publishing question or tell you about an experiment I'm doing or a new resource or an idea that's floating around in my head.

 

This podcast is not perfect. If you expecting slick production and fancy graphics you will be sorely disappointed. One thing I believe wholeheartedly is that perfectionism is the enemy of getting shit done, and I don't want to sit on this waiting to get better at production. I'm going to learn on the job.

 

That's what the podcast is all about - learning on the job. I'll talk a lot about things that have gone wrong and what I've learned from that. Later I'll start getting guests on who'll talk about other aspects of self-publishing I can't cover.

 

If you've got a question or topic you'd like me to cover in the podcast, shoot me an email or sing out in the Rage Against the Manuscript FB group. I'd love to hear what you think!
