This week the Robots talk about back cover blurbs. These are important marketing tools that no author should ignore.
This week’s promo – Garaaga’s Children: Ancients by Paul Elard Cooley
Also mentioned is the Five Guys In A Limo video. The dialog may be cheesy, but the example of how to use active voice is critically important for back cover copy.
Finally, I mentioned a new publishing distribution site simialar to Smashwords, but (in my opinion) much, much better. I incorrectly called it Direct 2 Digital. It is in fact Draft2Digital.com
This week the Robots sit down to chat with Jake Bible about his decision to stop podcasting his fiction. It was once seen as a great way to gain fans and attention, but is that the case? Are there better things we writers can do with our time? Sit down with us and see what you think.

This week the Robots settle in to talk about the topic of genre and all it’s carious forms. Should we as writers care what genres people put stories in? Does it matter? What’s the difference between one or the other? Enjoy!
