Join Prism Book Alliance® as Jeff Adams goes Outside the Margins today.
My husband, Will, and I listen to a lot of podcasts focused around writing. Since we both want to get to a place where writing is our primary business within the next five years, we like to learn as much as we can.
Besides learning a lot of great things from podcasts, we also love getting to know the people hosting the shows. The podcast lends itself perfectly to having a open dialogue even more so than a blog post because you get to hear them—or watch them if there is a video component to their broadcasts.
Will and I have toyed with the idea of launching a podcast for nearly a year and decided it was time to take the plunge. We launched Jeff & Will’s Big Gay Fiction Podcast on November 2 (with four initial episodes) and we put out a new episode every Monday.
We’d like the show to become a fun and informative resource for both readers and writers of gay romance fiction. If you can read it, write it, watch it or listen to it, we’ll talk about it.
We talk about what’s going on in our individual author journeys—both from my perspective as a more established author and Will as he’s working to get his first works out there. We also talk about the books we’re reading and what we’re watching or listening to. We interview other authors too.
We sat down with Wade Kelly and Atom Yang for interviews during GRL (you can find those interviews in episode three). We’ll have Tammy Middleton, who writes under the name T.M. Smith, on the show this coming Monday (November 30) as part of the blog tour for her new book, How to Deal.
The podcast will no doubt evolve as we keep going. After answering our first fan email in episode seven (thanks, Gillian!), we’re going to introduce a question of the week as a way to engage more with our listeners. Creating a positive place for open dialog between readers and writers in the gay fiction community is important to us and one of the reasons we started the podcast in the first place.
Speaking of the community, something you won’t hear about on our show is the drama that periodically crops up. In the short time that we’ve been recording episodes, there’ve been at least three separate incidents that have generated all kinds of social media buzz. Will and I decided that those topics won’t be part of the show. We don’t discuss those types of things on our personal social media accounts and don’t see any reason to talk about them on the podcast either. If it’s gossip about the latest flame war, we’re not interested.
We’d like The Big Gay Fiction Podcast to be a positive place where everyone can join in the discussion about how completely awesome gay romance fiction can be!
We hope you’ll check out the podcast and spend fifteen to thirty minutes each week with us. We’re available anywhere you’d like to listen—iTunes, YouTube, Stitcher, PlayerFM, on the website and via direct file download (available on the website for each episode). If we’ve missed getting the podcast on to your favorite service, let us know and we’ll fix that.
Tell us what you think. What should we talk about? Which authors should we interview? Let us know and we’ll work on making that happen in a future episode.
