A Really Nifty Podcast About Podcasting
This last week was the Master Business Class here at the coast with forty-some professional fiction writers.
At one point, for one session. Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Joanna Penn, J. Daniel Sawyer, and Mark Lefebvre (from Kobo) discussed podcasting. (Kris in the silver hair, Dan in the hat.) And Mark recorded it for the Kobo Life podcast.
(Realize learning like this went on for hours and hours every day for seven days. All brains fried. I learned a ton and I was helping pilot the ship.)
This podcast of this one session is great fun and very informative. Kris interviewed the other three. Worth the listen folks, if nothing else but to understand some of the process that goes into podcasting.
Fantastic new bundle just hit tonight. This is a bundle full of writing books. Including one of mine called Killing the Top Ten Sacred Cows of Indie Publishing and Kris’s new contracts book called Closing the Deal On Your Terms.
Don’t want to miss this bundle at http://storybundle.com/nano It will only be available for a short time.
Got more of the surveys out, including all the workshop surveys out. So we are about three quarters of the way through the surveys now and gaining on it. More will go out tomorrow.
If you are signed up for the anthology workshop here on the coast in late February, you should have gotten a letter from me and an invite to the workshop group. If you are signed up did not, write me.
