Sound Authors Let's Authors Sound Off

The release below is from a radio show I will be appearing on Friday. Followers of this blog will want to know about it to query for spots of their own but also because they frequently feature authors with ideas and information about the publishing industry and that fits in with my mantra, we need to learn everything we can about the business we're in! (-: I'll be appearing this Friday.


OPENPRESS) March 19, 2008 -- Each Friday at 1PM Eastern Standard Time, Sound Authors radio show features live interviews and readings from all varieties of authors, known and not-yet-known; all soon-to-be bestselling authors from all walks of life, from Hollywood actors to marathoners, to PhD therapists or life coaches. On this talk radio show, it is the story that counts. Authors sound off on every possible topic, from cuisine to culture, and from nature to nurture.

The show also podcasts each interview separately, and all archived podcasts can be searched from the Sound Authors website at www.soundauthors.com.

The first author guest this week will be writer Saul Silas Fathi, author of Full Circle: Escape from Baghdad and the Return. The book chronicles a prominent Iraqi Jewish family's escape from persecution through the journey of one family member: A 10-years old boy who witnesses public hangings and the 1941 Krystalnacht (Farhood) in Baghdad.

The second guest featured on the show will be author and video producer Jessica Kizorek, she has written a timely book that simplifies the process of producing and distributing video on the Internet titled Show Me: Marketing with Video on the Internet.
