I think when most people think of being published they automatically think of book publishers and having their books in book stores. I know, that used to be the first thing I thought of. But there are many other markets for stories including podcasts.
Did you know that not only are podcasts publishing stories in audio form but there are several that pay professional rates? I knew about the former, but I wasn’t aware of the later. Today’s guest changed all that for me and I hope he will for you too. That guest is Alasdair Stuart.
Alasdair is a writer, podcaster, host and publisher with Escape Artists. Escape Artists is not one but three genre fiction podcasts. Escape Pod, Podcastle and PseudoPod. One for Science Fiction, one for Fantasy and one for horror.
Alasdair is awesome and I really enjoyed the conversation.
And while I have your attention, Mik Murdoch, The Power Within is eligible to be nominated for a Prix Aurora this year. If you are Canadian and would like to help me get my newest book into the awards, I would ask you to go to www.prixaurorawards.ca. You need a membership but the cost will also gain you eBook copies of all the nominated books. A bargain for $10. That membership will allow you to both nominate and vote for the awards. There will be a link in the show notes.
I would really appreciate your support.
And before we begin the show, I would like to remind you that if you have any questions or comments, you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If I don’t know the answer to your question, I will find the person best suited to answer it and play it on the show.
