Indie Author Podcast: Interviews, Reviews and More
Posted by Anneque D. Machelle
I’m stoked to announce that in two weeks two podcasts will be kicking off from this site. That’s right, two! Both of them catering to independent authors and those with small publishers, and focussing on speculative fiction; science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, weird fiction and horror.
The first podcast will be Indie and More Book Review. It will air every fortnight starting from the 9th of November. Every fortnight five books, a mix of serials, short stories, novellas and novels, will be reviewed for all the world to download and hear. The reviews will be fairly in-depth, including quotes and author notes as well as an overview of plot and discussion of the themes and points of interest of each story. Each one will be given a rating out of 5, and links to the books will be provided in the details of the podcast.
The plan is to get indie books out of the blogging world and into other media. The podcast is free, people can listen at will, and feel like they are engaging on a different level with the authors. And hey! Anybody can share the podcast, including authors whose work is reviewed. Great to show off to friends, or to post onto their own blogs for some sweet street cred.
The second podcast is Literature Emergency Broadcast, a more author-orientated program. The podcast will be a mix of publishing news, interviews with authors (some of which may also be used with Indie and More, permission granted), daily writing life, Q&A about the business of writing and self-publishing, inspiration and advice. It will be a one-stop podcast for chatting shop and keeping up to date with the literature world. It’s first broadcast will be on November 16, and new episodes will go live every two weeks.
Both podcasts will last around the 20 minute mark, and will be available both on iTunes and on this blog, with transcripts (and so written reviews and interviews) posted here the week after.
If you have a book to recommend, be it your own or one you found interesting, or would like to talk shop or do an interview, don’t hesitate to drop me a line. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
These are dangerous, exciting times. We are the underground of the publishing world, and we are gonna drill right through the heavens! Have a roaring weekend everybody, and write hard!
