The Podcast is our latest adventure. Like The Corral online magazine it was designed to spread the word and showcase the talents of Independent Authors. Here is the description of the show.
Book Reviews and Interviews with a dab of writing wisdom tossed in. The hosts of Spotlighting the Indie Author, Nina Turnipseed and Joseph Clay will focus the spotlight on Indie Authors. 99% of the interviews will be of Indie Authors, the 1% is for special guest that may join us. During an interview one of the host or both will ask an off the wall question that leaves the interviewee shaking their head.
The book reviews will be split 80% Indie Author, 20% main stream authors. Every review will be honest and when needed brutal. Along with the review Nina and Joseph will award 1 to 5 stars to the book. During the review the hosts will cover what can be learned from the author of the book. These bits of wisdom will help Indie Authors become better writers by learning a new technique and/or avoiding mistakes.
To start, we will post one podcast a month. After we get our feet wet we'll change to a bi-monthly schedule. By the end of the year we hope to be publishing once a week.
