AudioTim 34: Adventures in SciFi Publishing Interview

I turn the mics around on this episode and interview the podcast staff of Adventures in SciFi Publishing. We talk with Shaun about his history podcasting, including the ups and downs, and how building the 2.0 version with Moses Siregar III and Brent Bowen has rejuvenated my favorite author-interview podcast. Halfway through, I ask each of them how their writing is doing, something we don’t often get to hear during the course of their normal podcasting format. This show was good fun with great guys, and it was an honor to get to share the airwaves with one of the major influences to my own podcasting and writing career.

I’m sorry we weren’t able to have Scott Roche on for this slot, but we hope to sometime soon. In the meantime, check out his podcast Action Pack Podcast, a three stories in one hour show that has zombies, steampunk-western action and alien adventures, from authors Michell Plested, J.R. Murdock and Scott Roche respectively.

  1. Just finished listening. Thanks so much for having us on! Too bad you didn’t interview me a month later. I’m feeling much more on fire about my writing after the recent Superstars seminar. 🙂

      My pleasure, Moses. And yeah, that would have been cool to hear about. If you want someone to talk to about it (I’m assuming you could on AISFP), but if not, let me know. I’m curious about the angle of continuing education for your stage of your career and how that helped and motivated you. A specific question I’d have is the value of paying for something like that over money to attend a con where you could market your book.

  2. Both can be great. I’d say a con where you’re hoping to market your book or meet an agent or editor is more hit or miss. If you make the magical connection, then it’s the best way to go. But there’s a good chance you’ll leave that event without accomplishing much. Higher whiff rate.

    Superstars is one where you’ll learn more about the business side of being a writer. Great advice, great inspiration. In that sense, it’s a sure thing.
