DIY   Book    is   a   podcast   I   produced   from   2009   to   2011   that   shares   everything   I’ve   learned   about   how   to write,   make,   and   sell   a   novel   —   all   by   yourself!    Many   people   think   you   have   to   “be”   published,   but just about anyone can publish a book using common, inexpensive materials. Some   of   the   information   here   may   be   past   its   “best   before”   date,   but   I   feel   the   principles   stand   up   and   I’ve   been   really   touched   by   the   stories   and   pictures   people   have   shared   with   me   about   what   they’ve achieved with this process. P.S.   In   the   podcast   I   say   these   are   “enchanced”   files   with   images   and   links…   but   that   didn’t   catch   on.   They’re just MP3s -- but you can find each episode’s links on its page.
“Hamish   MacDonald   and   his   podcast   have   been   incredibly   helpful   and   empowering   for   me   as   a   writer   and   artist   in   general   for years.   He   does   a   great   job   conveying   one   of   the   most   important   elements   of   DIY   art:   You   don't   have   to   be   famous,   have   a   degree, or get permission; you can start making your artistic dreams real whenever you want.” - ColeJ1121 on iTunes
