JDSLAB Podcast Episode 9: A Self-publishing Journey- Kate Slatter’s Story and interview with Dr Jon Drane. Kate is a  new author who created a blog before writing a book about the passing of her son.

This article and podcast focuses on the self-publishing journey and ways to promote your upcoming book through social media before it is even a manuscript.

In fact creating what I call Micro-pieces which are posts, articles and blogs that draw audiences to your topic is a potent methodology. This is because you get to test your central themes before  committing to a manuscript and chapter structure.

There is also the case that some books are painful to write due to circumstances like grief, loss and death.

This podcast and article looks at these themes through the eyes of a talented new author called Kate Slatter. Kate lost her son via suicide and created a blog, Munted, as a way to work through grief.

After experiencing enormous support from people, in response to the blog, Kate decided to publish it as a small book, to encourage support for others after a sudden loss and to encourage conversation for those left behind by a suicide.

I am honoured to have been able to interview Kate on this podcast episode.
