I started The Romance Radio Network at the beginning of this year and have posted eighty-nine interviews to date. That’s a rate of almost two per week for the eleven or so months. My dream initially was to provide a service to romance authors (and publishers), along with creating a brand and pushing the Desmond […]

Kim Richards is the CEO of Eternal Press and Damnation Books. She and I discuss the fascinating world of publishing and insights as to what goes on behind the scenes. As always, when I speak with publishers, I’m interested in their view of the industry. Publishing is changing, more rapidly than we can sometimes understand […]

I had a wonderful session with Sandra Crowley, a romantic suspense writer and the author of Caught By A Clown. She has wielded a wonderful touch with this book, by bringing together to characters, so opposite one another, you wonder if the adage “Opposites Attract’ can possibly be true. Her female protagonist, Stacie Monroe, is […]

Yesterday, I finally completed the process to use short links for the Romance Radio Network . A short link is when you have a regular link (for example, to the last posting on here about the Android App): http://romanceradio.net/2011/01/25/new-android-app-for-the-romance-radio-network/ That’s the way it normally looks and can be cumbersome to use in emails and other […]

Yesterday, I got a delightful email from the developer that my App for Androidâ„¢ SmartPhones was finished and deployed. If you have an Androidâ„¢ phone, you purchase the application (a whopping big $1.99) and use it to listen to any of the audio interviews on the Romance Radio Network. From the description: This is the […]

I had no idea what to expect when I interviewed Michael Mandrake. She is one heck of a prolific writer and, while being a wife and mother, she still cranks out the stories. Michael is but one of her three pen names; you’ll hear them all in my interview with her. And, as I said, […]

I looked at some of the early statistics for the Romance Radio Network last night. While this is preliminary, representing only the limited interviews available, the countries listening are: United States – 56.2% China – 39.8% Canada – 2.3% Japan and New Zealand – 1.7% What’s interesting to me is China. I didn’t have a […]

I had such a good time speaking with Nancy during our session and afterward. Besides being approachable and friendly, she is a darn good writer and this, her first book, shows excellent craftsmanship. We discuss Nancy’s writing background, of course and she also spends time talking about her first book: Prey For Closure. Nancy has […]

During one of my recent interviews with Nancy Gaffney, I wanted to make a separate recording of her doing a pitch for her book, Prey For Closure. At the end of our session, I asked her to record a short promo. I wanted her to do it at the end as I felt she would […]

This week I’m featuring an interview with Jenni Holbrook-Talty of Who Dares Wins Publishing. It’s a provocative discussion about the publishing industry. Some of the comments I’ve received are: “An eye-opening summary,” “informative” and “Jenni lays out the reality of publishing.” You can listen to our discussion or download an MP3 file at: http://romanceradio.net/2011/01/02/rrn-interview-with-jenni-holbrook-talty-001/ Next […]

I had some people tell me they could hear my voice, but couldn’t hear Jenni’s. When I mixed down the final edits, I left them in stereo–my voice on the left channel and Jenni’s on the right. I re-mixed the original files and replaced the one on my server with a monophonic version. You now […]
