There's a new podcast in town ... or there will be in January 2019! And it's all about editing and writing for indie authors.
What is it and who is it for?
Editing your book is essential, whether you do it yourself or work with a pro. This podcast will explore ways in which independent authors can make their publishing journeys easier.
If you want to learn how to improve your writing and self-editing with tips, tools and guidance, The Editing Podcast is for you.
Who are the hosts?
Denise Cowle and Louise Harnby are your hosts. We thought it would be fun to have two of us talking with each other rather than one of us talk at you.
Plus, we have different but complementary specialist experience, which means we can cover more topics with authority.
Why should you bother listening?
Because we really do know what we're talking about!
We have a lot in common! Having said that, our editing passions have gone in different directions. Denise is a non-fiction editor while Louise is a fiction specialist. That means we can ensure the episodes are balanced, and of value to indie authors regardless of subject or genre.
What we'll be talking about
We currently have over 50 topics lined up for discussion. Here's a selection that will give you a flavour of what's in the pipeline:
When and how often will we air?
Season 1 of The Editing Podcast will air weekly from January 2019.
Each season will include 10 standalone episodes of complementary topics. That means you can listen to them when you want and in the order of your choosing.
You'll be able to access the podcast via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, our websites, and a number of other well-known podcatchers.
