Ep. 19 – Getting your self-published books into the French-speaking market: a case study (mine) and finding a translator. And #TheLeftoverBride almost has a cover… A self-published author's diary

Today, I'm sharing some of what I've learned from my own data and experience when it comes to the French-speaking market for self-published books (in this case, mine): what vendors generate sells and revenue, what price point do I use, recouping investment. Before that, I also add a bit of info shared by the actress portraying Umma in Kim's Convenience in regards her crucial input for the food element to keep the authentacity (follow-up from last week's episode). I mention the following articles: Publishing Perspectives: As France is Fêted at Frankfurt, French Literary Agents Take Stock – https://publishingperspectives.com/2017/10/france-literary-agents-frankfurt-book-fair/ The Creative Penn: Tips For Translation, Self-Publishing, And Marketing In Foreign Languages With Nadine Mutas: https://www.thecreativepenn.com/2021/05/03/translation-and-marketing-in-foreign-languages/ The Creative Penn: How to Find the Right International Markets for Your Book: https://www.thecreativepenn.com/2014/01/23/international-markets/ I'm also explaining how I find translators to translate my books into French and share the job posting and questions that I I posted on Upwork for the translation of #TheLeftoverBride summary and title.  I'm also talking about making progress in my revision and the fact that I almost have a cover for #TheLeftoverBride. I've designed two different covers and I'm asking my readers in my readers' newsletter to help me choose. 🙂 Instagram for the podcast: http://www.instagram.com/aselfpublishedauthorsdiary YouTube channel for the podcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJih-rMFJv6IwlV4eeWUUIg  Join my readers' newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/elodienowodazkij/website Don't hesitate to ask me a question: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/message  As always don't hesitate to check my website out: http://www.elodienowodazkij.com — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/elodie-nowodazkij/support
