I make words (and so can you!) is a podcast hosted by one traditionally published author and one not-so-traditionally published author making their way in the book world.  

Episode 202: What to Expect When You're Expecting to be Published

In this episode, Marni and Diana talk about what work kind of support you can expect from a traditional publisher versus what you can expect to do yourself to promote your book.

Pubcrastination - When you make up excuses to work on some other aspect of promotion or design for your book to avoid writing.
— Marni Bates
