About This Episode
On the first anniversary of indie-press Curious Corvid Publishing, Kathleen talks with founder Ravven White. They cover how the house came to be from Ravvens’s self-publishing dreams and what made her decide to open the imprint to submissions. The fledgling Curious Corvid has published an astonishing twelve works, from literary journals, Syfy/fantasy to poetry and a lovely collection of gothic works. There’s a little sneak peek into the upcoming year, with at least a book a month, and in October, the Corvid Grimoire will be released, featuring a collection of short stories from the indie publisher’s signed authors. If you are in the Los Angeles area April 23 & 24, Curious Corvid will be at the LA Times Festival of Books in the Writers & Publishers Network booth #200. We hope to see you there.

If you only listen to one of our podcasts this year, let it be this one…
As an indie press-seeking or self-published author, the dream is to get your hard-won book out into the hands of the public. Some will jump when offered the chance because it sounds too good to be true. In this episode, Kathleen and Penny Sansevieri go in-depth into the darker side of the publishing world. A caution for the hopeful to do their due diligence before handing money to a supposed publishing company or marketing firm.
This week’s episode of Talking Book Publishing is a rare treat for us. It’s never happened in the podcast’s two seasons that we get to talk with an author on the release day of their book. Today our guest Bruce Carlin is the author of Undeterred: How One Determined Vietnamese Orphan Carved Out a Place for Himself in America. This novelistic biography is an immigrant story of resilience and determination. Bruce and Kathleen discuss his writing process, the book’s subject, dive a little into the stock market, and how these pieces combine to tell a compelling once-in-a-lifetime story.
