    Thanks for checking us out, everyone! (Hm, not sure that sounded right...)

    We had Bryan Cohen from the Sell More Books show on tonight, and he gave tons of great information on organizing Facebook Events and also on posting YouTube videos and building a list.

    Next week, we'll have our first traditionally published author on the show to talk about marketing from that side of the fence. It should be interesting! :)

    Looks like it's been a while since I updated this thread, and I wanted to let you know that we've had some good podcasts of late. Whether you're a SF/F person or not, you might find them useful. We've done a mix of interviews and round robin shows where we discuss a topic and share our experience. We have close to 40 novels out there between the three of us, and Jo and I both make a full-time income from our writing, so something might help!

    Lindsay,
    Are you going to be at the Book Festival in PV on the 16th?

    I actually didn't know about it. I'm not in the local writers' association (I was for a year, but didn't find any of the themes of their monthly events really called to me), so don't know if I would be invited. I found a mention online though, so maybe I'll email one of the addresses listed. It wouldn't be a long drive, for sure. ;)

    I just want to say this is my favorite new podcast. If you listen to podcasts, check it out. I really love that you don't waste time Lindsay (IMHO). Some podcasts have too much banter.
    So much good stuff here!
    Take care,
    Seth
