We’ve got an interesting combo episode today. The first ⅓ of the show is the wrap-up episode of the Martha Carr Launch Strategy Case Study, where we’ve followed Martha as she went through the process of launching six books in 91 days. In today’s episode, we’ll get the final details on how things went and what she’d do differently if she were to do this again.
Martha sticks around for the second part of the show, where we bring in Jill Smith, the narrator for Martha’s Wallis Jones series. The first of the audiobooks was just released, and the two of them discuss the way they’ve worked together on the series. For those of you who haven’t tried audio yet, you may learn a thing or two about how the process works for both the narrator and the author.
