Today I’m thrilled to welcome my first returning guest, Alice Clover, a self-published children’s author. Alice has sold over 14, 000 copies of her first book ‘Girls Love To Fart’ and has just released her second book, Princesses Don’t Have Stinky Bums.’ I was keen to catch up and find out how she has found the process of self-publishing a book the second time around, and what has changed. We discussed ways to market and promote a book yourself and the process for deciding to self-publish again.

Listen in to hear Alice share:

  • An introduction to herself and her work (0:56)
  • How the process has differed with her second book (2:38)
  • Why she chose to self publish again (7:28)
  • What she did differently the second time around (13:56)
  • How networking with other authors has helped build her audience (16:56)
  • The impact of the release of a second book on the sales of the first (22:03)
  • How she has marketed the book, and driven sales (24:09)
  • Using Facebook groups for advice and support (31:22)
  • Her main piece of advice for other self-published authors (37:22)
