Nashville, TN (PressExposure) January 10, 2008 -- In October of 2006, freelance writer and business owner Yvonne Perry started a podcast to help her clients promote their books. Realizing that many of her listeners would be readers of books as well as writers who need more information about the book publishing industry, she came up with the idea for a show format that would benefit both.
The show begins with the author telling how he or she got started as a writer and sharing their storyline to give readers an idea of what the featured book is about. Then, the author shares how they brought their book to market. Whether self-published, conventionally published or published through a publish-on-demand service, an authorâs publishing experience is unique and provides insight for other authors who are still contemplating how they will publish.
Januaryâs schedule represents guests in a variety of genres:
