Discussion: Tad tells us about Playaway, an MP3 player that comes pre-loaded with a complete audiobook, and they have a Netflix-style rental service for audio books. That leads into a chat about different methods that authors can explore to sell their ebooks and audiobooks at conventions and book signings.

Listener Review: Web Genii brings us a review of Hell's Aquarium by Steve Alten, the fourth book in his MEG series.

Listener Review: Darcy's Dad brings us a review of the graphic novel version of The Dragons of Autumn Twilight, and recommends it as a way to introduce younger readers to the Dragonlance series.

Listener Review: Lejon brings us a review of Personal Effects: Dark Art by J.C. Hutchins and Jordan Weisman.

Discussion: Mike and Mike talk about different ways for authors to market and promote their work, including social media networking, like Second Life and other social groups, promotional tools like Facebook and Twitter, and more. Look for ways to find and create a community where sharing the news and the work will benefit readers and authors alike!

Do you have a vision to see and do something different with your story or with marketing it? What are some of the different things you think we as readers and writers should be seeing?
