IngramSpark Self-Publishing Podcast: Go Publish Yourself Season 2

Monday, August 27, 2018

The IngramSpark self-publishing podcast is back and better than ever! Join us for Season 2 of Go Publish Yourself from our website or your favorite audio platform: iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and beyond! New episodes release every Tuesday during a given season.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the response for our podcast since launching it as a new form of free publisher education just this past January. Since launch, we’ve completed Season 1, a special Author Spotlight mini-series, and have now begun releasing episodes for Season 2!

In our inaugural season, we offered our perspective on several topics essential to self-publishing success, joined by fellow Ingram colleagues. The Author Spotlight series featured independent authors and publishers who have excelled on their self-publishing journeys. And in Season 2, we’re inviting outside publishing industry experts to discuss critical self-publishing topics. Every episode, regardless of season or hosts/guests, is packed with self-publishing tips!

Here are the most popular self-publishing podcast episodes of each season so far!

After Listening to Go Publish Yourself


The intention of us starting a self-publishing podcast was to provide self-publishers with even more ways to gain the knowledge they need to succeed. We already offer free online courses, this weekly blog, calculators, and downloadable guides, so a podcast was just one more way we could help grant you access to knowledge on-the-go. We hope you apply what you learn when you publish your book with IngramSpark to make you and your book as successful as you can possibly be.


We love when you visit with us at trade shows and events or when you comment on social media to tell us you listen to the podcast! It makes our day to know you’re utilizing this resource and that you’re enjoying it! But since we don’t get to see all of you in person or on social media, we’d love for you to leave a review on iTunes! We’ll see your comments there and Robin, Director of IngramSpark, may even start reading some of them out in future episodes.

We look forward to continuing to connect with you, and as always, thanks for listening!
