The Changing Audiobook Market: Advanced Self-Publishing Podcast With Orna Ross and Joanna Penn

AskAlli: Self-Publishing Advice Podcast

In today's Advanced Self-Publishing podcast, Orna Ross and Joanna Penn discuss the changing audiobook market. Audiobooks once again performed well in 2021 in the United States, UK, and Europe, with double-digit growth for the seventh year running. The opportunities of audio continue to expand with more distributors and improved discoverability so more listeners can find our work. But the rise of subscription models is impacting the profitability of audio, so how do indie authors use the services in the most effective way? Can AI narration expand the audiobook market even more—and will authors, narrators, and listeners embrace it?

S3 Ep 6: From Corporate IT to Author Entrepreneur: Joanna Penn

The Next Chapter by Ellie Barker

Joanna Penn started off her working career in corporate IT. She did really well, and worked all over the world including Australia and New Zealand. But she was always frustrated by the lack of creativity. And after trying different ventures, in 2006 she wrote her first non-fiction book. Joanna not only decided to publish her own book but she started a blog and began to share everything she was learning about the publishing industry. She went on to also write fiction and she became a New York Times and USA bestselling author of thrillers under J.F Penn. Joanna has now written more than thirty books. She is an award-winning podcaster and her Creative Penn podcast has been down loaded millions of times. She is an international speaker and one of the most well-respected indie authors, well, in the world. Not only that, she’s still sharing all her knowledge and teaching authors how to make (a good) living from their writing. Joanna Penn has been such an inspiration to me and my Next Chapter and I was thrilled she agreed to be my guest. You can find out more about Joanna, all her books and courses at https://www.thecreativepenn.com/ And of course, my Next Chapter at elliebarkerwrites.com

Intermittent Fasting Stories

In this episode of Intermittent Fasting Stories, Gin talks to Joanna Penn, author and podcaster from Bath, England. Are you looking for intermittent fasting support in a cozy community that celebrates the clean fast? Join us on the Delay, Don’t Deny Social Network! Instead of relying on the big social network most of us have been on for years, we now have a community that is completely separate and just for us, with a variety of groups you can join for the support and community you need.  You can connect directly with Gin in the Ask Gin group, and she’ll answer all of your questions personally. If you’re new to intermittent fasting or recommitting to the IF lifestyle, join the 28-Day FAST Start group, and both Gin and the other group members will walk virtually beside you each day of your FAST Start.  Members of the DDD Social Network have access to all episodes of Intermittent Fasting Stories streaming within the DDDSN platform, ad-free! That’s just one reason to join. Visit dddsocialnetwork.com to join our membership community. An annual membership is $59.95. If you aren’t ready to fully commit for a year, join for $9.99 a month and you can cancel at any time. If you know you’ll want to stay forever, we also have a lifetime membership option available.  IF is free. You don’t need to join our community to fast. But if you’re looking for support from a community of like-minded IFers, we are here for you at dddsocialnetwork.com.  Joanna learned of intermittent fasting from a podcast in 2015. The way it was described, Joanna got the idea that IF was only for men, something that was medical, it took too much discipline, and was for only people who didn't like food. "I decided IF was not for me," and she carried on with life. During the pandemic that began in March of 2020, Joanna found she was putting on weight. Knowing she had to do something, she recalled IF and did some new research. She came across Delay, Don't Deny, Fast Feast Repeat, and The Obesity Code, and read all three. In July of 2020, Joanna began with 20:4, and she has never looked back. Her husband also joined her with IF. He had struggled with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) for many years, trying several things to manage it. But within three days of IF, his IBS was gone! Joanna has lost roughly 17 pounds, going from 170 to 153. She has loads of energy and feels great! IF is simply a part of her life now.  The advice Joanna would give new IFers: Have patience! It may take a couple months to figure it all out. You may find Joanna Penn at: TheCreativePenn.com and The Creative Penn Podcast Get Gin’s books at http://www.ginstephens.com/get-the-books.html, including her New York Times Bestseller, Fast. Feast. Repeat., available wherever you buy books!  Share your intermittent fasting stories with Gin: gin@intermittentfastingstories.com Follow Gin on Twitter @gin_stephens Follow Gin on Instagram @GinStephens Visit Gin’s website at ginstephens.com Check out Gin’s Favorite Things at http://www.ginstephens.com/gins-favorite-things.htmlSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
