This Week’s Fish-Wrap is preempted, owing to just about anything covered by that that being easily covered in tomorrow’s event, exciting details of which are below.
Tomorrow at 17:00 PDT (or 20:00 EDT, or barely into Wednesday at 00:00 GMT) I’ll be interviewed on Blog Talk Radio with Wayne Herlbert. In addition to the possibility I’ll mention an up-coming title or two, here’s what he’s claiming I’ll talk about:
Independent book publisher and President of Atomic Fez Publishing, Ian Alexander Martin, shares his views on current and future trends in the publishing industry. Ian describes the challenges facing publishers in the current economy and with the rapid changes taking place in the publishing industry. Ian shares his thoughts on genre busting fiction, developing a niche market for specific titles, and how an author can get published in today’s highly competitive marketplace. Ian also offers some advice for successful online book marketing including some very unique and unexpected tactics for which Atomic Fez has become famous.
Frankly, I’m not so sure about the belief that “Atomic Fez Publishing has become famous”, but I’m hardly going to dissuade him at this point.
The interview is an hour long, so I’ll have to work at being briefer than normal. More than likely, about half-way through we’ll get far off the subject and start debating the various advantages of tea-making techniques. Also possible is comparing of the cinematic visions of Akira Kurosawa v. Francis Ford Coppola or Terry Gilliam v. Orson Welles.
It’s also entirely likely that we’ll talk about books. You never know.
