Customer Reviews

I'm so addicted! This is my favorite show :D

I've been listening to this podcast now since it became and each one is even better than the last! The bit of news at the intro keeps me informed without preaching what side to take (you know the indie vs trad or Amazon vs. David, erm Hachette).

The Guest are fabulous and I've literally made so many (SO MANY!) purcheses off their interviews.

This pod cast helps me find new gems out there in the river of books being published.

The questions keep the intervews interesting and entertaining, as well as incredibly insightful.

Kudos to Stephen Campbell, the Author Biz, man for keeping us informed as well as entertained!



I just finished catching up on all 42 of the episodes to date, two or three per day, since I first discovered this brilliant podcast in late April. Prior to that, I'd just been stumbling along on the marketing and promotion of my three novels, and feeling elated when sales of all of them topped a thousand. But just from listening to these, I've worked on optimizing my Amazon keywords and descriptions, built an email list of about a hundred readers and run a free promotion, which propelled my Amazon ranking to #18 in that book's particular subgenre for at least one day. I'll be implementing many, MANY more ideas I've heard here ... once I can decipher the voluminous notes I've scribbled over the past two or three weeks. And now I look forward with bated breath to Mondays. Whee! "Excellent," "superb" and "brilliant" totally understate the immense value of these podcasts. If it were possible, I'd give it nine or ten stars. Thank you, Stephen Campbell!

Key Word Is Actionable

I listen to podcasts while I'm doing housework. Then, if I've heard something useful that I want to capture, I sit down at the end of the podcast and make a note. I figure, if I can't remember what I thought was important until the end, it wasn't that important. With The Author Biz Podcast, I find myself making a note nearly every time I listen. Listen to it yourself. You'll see what I mean.
