With special guests and your hosts Kathleen Kaiser & Adanna Moriarty
Enjoy conversations with publishing professionals and authors about the business end of the pen—insights for new writers, published authors, and anyone interested in the world of book publishing.
This Month’s Highlight, enjoy a taste of every episode.
Talking Book Publishing grew out of a need to share information with a broader circle of people. Through her work in the literary field over the last thirteen years, Kathleen Kaiser has developed an incredible circle of influencers, authors, book marketing professionals, editors, agents, publishers, and more. She found new writers have many of the same questions as members ask her as president of the Writers & Publishers Network.
Twice monthly, guests from all corners of book publishing will discuss the latest trends, give new writers advice on mistakes and how to avoid them, and share a wealth of information out there with all listeners.
After each show, producer Adanna Moriarty leads a free-form discussion, After Hours with the Producer, with the guest on related topics, especially those of interest to new people wanting to publish a book.
“I’ve been doing marketing my entire career,” said Kathleen “Adanna has been involved only a few years. Combined, I feel we hit all of the points of interest and questions that listeners would ask. We both are writers working on books who are marketing other writers and want to share all that we have learned and continue to discover.”
