    Today, I share with you my new (to me) strategy to get advance book reviews, using TikTok, Instagram (and relying on my newsletter which I've always done) and contacting readers from Netgalley who have reviewed a previous book in the series and who mentioned they'd be interested in contacting with me. The first #SweetsForLove reviews are raving! :-) Oh and you can get your own copy here: https://books2read.com/u/3Gwzpa In addition, I have created a #SweetsForLove Bingo :-) (bit.ly/SweetsForLoveBingo) and I have a #SweetsForLove Team (Facebook group and discord channel). And I'm also explaining why this release week is *very* emotional (in a lot of ways). I'm pretty calm about the release itself but knowing my book touches readers and makes them smile is ... an amazing feeling. And I may be slightly reflective right now.

    As I said last week I also have so many plans for this podcast. I want to work on the website which would include resources, the ups and downs of self-publishing, the A to Z shorter episodes, and do a few more interviews and tell you more about what works for me and my writing and self-publishing career.

    And to do this, a lot of things need to happen. And so this year, A Self-Published Author's Diary will take a summer break. The diary and I will be back on your favorite podcasting/streaming platform in September.

    Ask me a question:

    • And during that time, please don't hesitate to ask me anything related to self-publishing or writing either per email aselfpublishedauthorsdiary AT gmail.com or authorelodienowodazkij AT gmail.com or by voicemail: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/message

    I almost titled this episode: "How to achieve your self-publishing goals without feeling overwhelmed." But dear Diary that would have been false advertisement as while I'm trying to adapt my systems and plans to fit my goals, I'm still in the process and it does feel overwhelming from times to times. Do I have coping mechanisms when it does so thatI can nmake sure that it also doesn't take away from my plan?. Yes, I do but still... I'm not yet at the "achieve your goals without feeling overwhelmed" stage. I am trying to get there. First steps: planning and goals...
