We’ll take it.
In this new article, the author explores the careers of J.C. Hutchins, Mur Lafferty, and Scott Sigler. It also promotes the hell out of Podiobooks.com as the place to keep up with the phenomenon. What phenomenon, you ask? From the article:
It seems a ripe time for novel podcasting to grow. Traditional book publishers are struggling. Book sales are down; MacMillan has laid off employees, as have Random House and Simon & Schuster; and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has suspended the purchase of most new manuscripts. With advance money drying up as well as contracts, [Evo] Terra says that aspiring writers now feel that “maybe I should try something on my own” and build an audience online.
I’m even more stoked that I come out smelling like a rose in this article. I’m often misquoted. Or maybe I say stuff out loud that I shouldn’t!
