Joel Naoum’s new consultancy for authors

joelnaoumquoteThis week, I’m flying solo in our introduction for the podcast as Vanessa continues her writers’ retreat in Italy. At the time of this recording it was pre-NaNoWriMo time and I want to know who is thinking of joining in on National Novel Writing Month this year? Share your NaNoWriMo plans by reaching out to us via Twitter @kimberleyfoster and @v_carnevale

Our special guest for this week’s episode is Joel Naoum, a Sydney-based book publisher, editor and consultant. He currently runs Critical Mass, a consultancy for authors and publishers, and previously ran Pan Macmillan Australia’s digital-first imprint Momentum. In 2011 he completed the Unwin Fellowship researching digital publishing experimentation in the United Kingdom.

During Vanessa’s chat with Joel, he gives listeners a glimpse into the digital publishing landscape, and what kind of skills self-published authors need. He also talks about factors to consider when deciding to pursue traditional vs. self-publishing.
