Writing Vlog #8: How I Self-Publish

Updated: Jan 5

This week I'm talking about how I self-publish, and giving a few tips for anyone who is thinking of doing the same.

If you'd like to ask me a question to be answered on this vlog, then tweet me @JosieJaffrey using the hashtag #AskJosieJaffrey!


In writing news, I've written 11,000 words of The Blood Prince (Sovereign Book III) this week, which means I have a 12,000 words to write in the next three days if I want to finish the manuscript by Christmas. That should be doable, I hope!

In reading news, I've just finished reading Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris. Keep an eye out for The Gin Book Club's video review, which will be hitting our YouTube channel on Wednesday.

In other news, The Gin Book Club's QUIZ OF THE YEAR has now been filmed, fuelled by mulled wine and hilarity. You'll be able to find parts 1 and 2 live on our YouTube channel on 23rd and 30th December respectively, in lieu of my usual vlog post. My usual Sunday vlogs will return in January.
