In this episode we celebrate the launch of our first book Freelancing for Journalists. We talk to freelance journalists and published authors Michelle Rawlins and Frank Shennan about getting your first non-fiction book published and navigating the world of agents, ghost writing and self-publishing.

Michelle has recently released Women of Steel which tells the stories of the feisty factory sisters who helped to win the Second World War. Frank is co-author of Rebels in Paradise, the inside story of the battle for Celtic Football Club together with a range of other non-fiction books.
