Welcome to episode six of the The Rebel Author Podcast where I’m talking to Renee Conoulty all about how indie authors can DIY an audiobook.
In the Introduction
This week I was delighted to be on the Alliance of Independent Authors fiction and nonfiction podcast with Orna Ross. We were talking about all things marketing. Specifically answering the question Who is Your Reader and Why Should You Care? If you’d like to catch the episode you can right here.
I’m even more delighted to announce that I’ll be a regular guest on their podcast going forward. Every second Monday of the month, I’ll be hosting the fiction and nonfiction podcast episode with Adam Croft. We’ll tackle all kinds of writing, marketing and publishing questions. So subscribe on your podcatchers so you don’t miss out.

I can’t believe I’m writing a post about being six months full-time writing. The first three months whizzed by but there was this sense of length too. Of time expanding and stretching out in front of me. Not so much for the last three months. It’s been a hop and skip to get to the six month marker. I’m changing and learning so fast it makes me even more grateful I’m taking the time out to chronicle this journey. If you missed the lessons from my first three months, you can find them here.
Six Months Full-Time Writing
So six months in to this journey, what have I learned?
Hello and welcome back to The Rebel Author Podcast, I’m thrilled to host the lovely H.B Lyne today as we talk all about how to world build covering both fantasy and non-fantasy settings. But first… [Read more…] about 005 – How to World Build for Fiction Authors
I’ve just created a home audio booth, and I know lots of indie authors out there want to do the same but have no idea where to start. So I thought I’d share the process and show you how to build your own DIY audio booth.
Why Build a Home Audio Booth?
Most writers by now know that they need to jump on the audio book bandwagon ASAP. The audiobook industry is booming. That’s swell, but what about those of us who can’t afford to spend $6000 paying a professional narrator to narrate, edit and master an audiobook for you? Well, we can do it ourselves. I’m seeing more and more indie authors taking the proverbial bull by the horns and DIY’ing audiobooks. And it’s not like we haven’t seen this kind of behavior before. Look what happened with video proliferation and the rise of YouTube. iPhone home movies and the growth of DIY authenticity on YouTube exploded. I think it’s happening with audio too.
Here’s my quick tips on building a home studio. [Read more…] about How to Build a DIY Audio Booth
Hello and welcome back to episode four of The Rebel Author Podcast. I am so excited for this interview. When I was transcribing the interview, I found myself taking loads of notes. Kristina is an absolute editing whizz and shows you how to self-edit better.
In the intro, I talk about the two blog posts I’ve been pulling together on audio resources. The first one is a huge list of resources I’ve been bingeing my way through and I recommend for anyone trying to either grow their knowledge of audio creation or trying to produce DIY audiobooks.
The second one will take you step by step through the creation of my audio booth in my very very tiny office! That post will be published on 28th October 2019, if you’re reading this post after that date, you can use this link.
I also talk about Lindsay Buroker’s return to the world of podcasting. I used to love listening to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Marketing Podcast, but it stopped about six months ago. I’m delighted to tell you she’s back with Jo Lallo and Andrea Pearson, in their new podcast is called Six Figure Authors. Their tagline:
Six Figure Authors is the podcast that helps you take your writing career to the next level.
