One of the ways I love learning about writers is through listening to them. Occasionally, I’ve been fortunate enough to attend an author signing at a bookstore, a lecture at a college, or a book talk at a coffee house. However, lately I’ve been able to connect with other writers from the comfort of my own home through podcasts.
Listening to author interviews through podcasts is a great way to learn more about the voice behind the book. I am including a few podcast links below for interviews that I did recently. They are absolutely free for you to enjoy, and there’s no sign-up that needs to occur. You can simply listen straight from your computer or phone. If you prefer, you can also download them to a mobile device to listen on the go. I hope you enjoy them!
Some people like reading a book and seeing a movie, but radio host Shelly McElroy told me she much prefers to read the book and speak with the author. Listen to my one hour conversation on MileHiRadio with her here: https://shows.pippa.io/people-who-know-stuff/audrey-knows-about-building-on-small-successes
For a shorter experience, here’s a 30 minute chat with editor in chief of Author magazine Bill Kenower on Author2Author: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/author-magazine/2018/04/03/author2author-with-audrey-wick.
And if you’ve ever wondered how an author takes an idea and builds it into a book, Linda Fulkerson and I discuss that on this Ideas2Books podcast: https://lindafulkerson.com/interview-with-audrey-wick-i2b042/.
Now, it’s time to share. What are your favorite podcasts? Do you have specific author episodes to recommend? Post them in the comments.
Audrey’s new book, COMING HOME, is out today!
Audrey Wick is the author of the Texas Sisters series for Tule Publishing, which includes
Finding True North and Coming Home. Audrey believes the secret to happiness includes lifelong
learning and good stories. But travel and coffee help. She has journeyed to over twenty
countries—and sipped coffee at every one.
I don’t usually listen to podcasts, but I will seek some out if a favorite person is on one.
Denise, that’s a wonderful point. Yes, knowing who is on a podcast can certainly drive my interest to one I haven’t previously known about, and I’m glad you are open to that as well. Hope you are enjoying your summer and reading some great books this season!
Are any of your podcasts available in scrip for the deaf? I am deaf and I know some folks will later post their podcast in script forms. My fuctional medicne doctor does it. Which helps those like me who are deaf or hearing impaired. Thanks sandi
I appreciate you asking about this, Sandi. Each of the podcasts has basic show notes with links, and the one at MileHiRadio includes highlights for some of the items discussed in the episode. Full transcripts are not currently available. However, you may like these two text interviews: https://fictionophile.wordpress.com/2018/03/06/20-questions-with-audrey-wick/ and https://cometreadings.com/2018/07/08/sunday-brunch-with-audrey-wick/. The second link has a giveaway for a free book that’s active for two more days, so I hope you’ll visit the site for a chance to win. Thank you for stopping by the blog!
I haven’t listened to any podcasts but it sounds like I need to start listening.
