Our Air in the Paragraph Line #13 author call last night went great! It was basically a mash-up of a book reading and one of those 80s party line chat phone things (you know, picture an ad on “Up All Night” with some dizzy actress saying “I like to meet singles online! I like to just listen! Only $1.99 a minute (toll charges may apply.”)
The call featured me, Ben Mack, Timothy Gager, Fiona Helmsley, and Aaron Carnes. We talked about the book, questioned the Kindle, went on about Facebook, explained our stories, and discussed the crooked house that John Sheppard built. The call went for about an hour, and was a lot of fun.
You can listen to an archive of the call at http://attendthisevent.com/?eventid=11623593 – it’s a streaming audio thing, or you can download the MP3 and listen to us drone on about publishing woes while you’re on the treadmill at the gym. I’ve also archived a copy for download at http://paragraphline.com/media/aitpl13-author-call-030410.mp3. (Right-click and save-as that, and it’s ten megs, so don’t do it a million times in a row. And if you link to it, I’d prefer you link to this article instead.)
Many thanks to everyone who joined in and listened live, and to all of the authors who participated. And thanks to Ben for setting this up. Let me know what you think of the call, and if something like this (or maybe more one-on-one interviews) would be something you’d like to check out in the future.
