Author Adele Park joins host Richard Paolinelli this week to talk about audiobooks, including her four very unique audiobooks, and the challenges to produce them. She also points out how the audio format is a great opportunity for new authors and old ones alike.
If you are looking to move your books into this format, this is show you need to watch.
Debut author B. Michael Stevens joins host Richard Paolinelli this week to discuss The Goddess Gambit. Marketing a novel that doesn’t fit a specific genre and Stevens’ story in the upcoming Planetary Anthology: Pluto.
Afterwards, Richard discusses a disturbing trend: Gatekeeping. It has him running a little hot under the collar. But don’t worry, no show hosts were injured during the filming of this week’s episode.
Dawn Witzke joins host Richard Paolinelli to talk about her Underground series and her experiences with anthologies. Richard closes out the show with an important message about how you can help out a young woman in need of serious medical and financial aid.
An amazing author, and fellow Nebraskan, Tosca Lee, will be our guest author on April 3rd. Lee highlights a solid group of four authors who will be on the show to talk about their latest works and their own journey along a scribe’s life.
Lee is a multi-award winner, as well as a New York Times bestselling author. Her novel, Firstborn, garnered two top awards at the 2018 Realm Makers in St. Louis. For a complete listing of her books and awards check out her website here.
Tosca will be on to talk about her latest release, The Line Between, which has joined several other books on my “must-read-whenever-I-have-more-than-five-free-seconds” list. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to talking to her in April.
Here’s the schedule for April:
April 3 – Tosca Lee
April 10 – Adele Park
April 17 – Eric Hedden
April 24 – Amy Bovaird
Slots for May are already filling up as well as shows for future months. If you are an author, or Indie publisher, who’d like to be on a future show, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
The second show is live and our featured author is Gibson Michaels.
A little different setup this week in that Gibson passed away on Sept. 7, 2017, so obviously, this isn’t a live interview. But he was an amazing author and an even better friend and he would have been a live guest here.
But, thanks to a video blogger named Jason Zacarola, we have about a five-minute clip of him talking about his Sentience Trilogy, which was a 2016 Dragon Award finalist for Best Military Sci-Fi.
I also talk about his fourth and final book, Eerie, which is coming out later this spring. He was working on it when he passed and a group of people have been working on finishing it for him and for his fans.
I also discuss the differences between traditional and independent publishing as well as those authors, like myself, who are considered hybrids because we do both.
Its a good show and I think you will enjoy it. Here’s the link to the video on YouTube:
