Listener Review: Web Genii brings us a review of Faefever by Karen Marie Moning, with a mention of Bloodfever. Continuing her vampire themes, she also recommends reading the Laws of the Blood series by Susan Sizemore, despite the bad artwork on the earlier printings.

Interview: Daniel Suarez joins C2C this week to talk about his book, Daemon and the unusual journey to publishing that the book took: from rejection to self-published to grassroots blogger word of mouth to an article in WIRED to a mainstream publishing house to a Hollywood option for a film adaptation.

Daniel talks about how this experience helped him gain some insight into how publishers view projects, and the online marketing strategy spearheaded by his wife Michelle, and how that directed and organic marketing approach gained a momentum of its own.

The sequel to Daemon is currently in the works!

  1. Happy Book Day!
    Not only has this show been a gateway for books, but for new media in general.
    Thanks for heralding the message of ways that writers can make it in the marketplace.

  2. Yes, please make the 1st year available for download or dvd. I would be glad to purchase. I would assume that the other years are on the site and can be downloaded. I just haven't ever went back that far.

    Keep up the great work

  3. If the first year is the one with the interviews with Arthur C Clarke and Robert Jordan, I would definitely buy them! If not, let's put those years up for sale, too!

    Oh, and, congrats on 7 years of New Media pioneering! The world is better for your hard work ^_^

  4. Happy birthday Dragon Page!

    Here's to many, many happy returns!

    Looking forward to hearing more about Daniel Suarez's journey. It's so relevant to the show and its listeners, especially those of us who aspire to have our work widely read.
