A word about Release All

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

There’s been a bit of confusion about the function of the Release All link. The Release All link will allow all the episodes to appear in your podcatcher. Different podcatchers will handle this differently…some will download all of those episodes. Some will not, and you need to trigger the download manually. Most default to set […]

Support group for aspiring podiobook authors created

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

Every day, staff members and current podiobook authors field a handful of questions (remember that some hands are larger than others) from prospective (that’s a nice way to say “wannabes”) podiobook authors. I get near-constant pings from my ego-filters as authors contemplate the first-steps in creating a podcast version of their novel, anthology or non-fiction […]

Time for some branding rules?

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

Seems like our little project here continues to get more and more attention, which is a Very Good Thing. However, folks seem rather loosey-goosey when it comes to how they display the name of all of this stuff that we collectively know as Podiobooks.com. I’ll likely expand this into a full Branding Rules section of […]

Echoes

Saturday, June 24th, 2006

Between my travels, I managed to find and upload a complete new tale of fiction for your enjoyment: Echoes by Nathan P. Butler It begins with a murder in an Atlanta hotel room. There is no DNA. There are no fingerprints. There are only the victim’s ties to two powerful men: one a senator, the […]

Erosion

Monday, June 19th, 2006

Our latest title is Erosion by Lon S. Cohen. Canyon Park is bowed down under a relentless torrent of rain. The fields are flooded, the bridges crumble and the increasingly isolated town is host to a serial killer with a grudge against the wealthy Lollo family. Slipping between a small cast of characters; the killer, […]

Another step toward “making it”

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

I take it as a good sign that the typo-squatters have turned their attention our direction. I’m unsure that there is enough traffic on the word podiobooks to justify registering the domain without the second “o”, but Wang Lee in Hong Kong certainly seems to think so. (And no, I’m not going to link to […]

Editing Reality

Friday, June 16th, 2006

New book live, helping authors of works of fiction. Interesting! Editing Reality is both the name of a novel-in-progress and a podcast about the reality of editing. Host Micah Dubinko tackles a new editing topic each week, and puts it into practice against an installment of his novel. If you’re curious about the process of […]

Update A new version of this book has been posted, with re-mastered episodes and additional content added. The new blog post detailing the launch can be found here. I’m all giddy.
