Talk Radio for Authors

Francine Silverman, who operates an online publicity service for authors and hosted Book Marketing with Fran on Achieve Internet Radio, deserves kudos for her latest book, TALK RADIO FOR AUTHORS: GETTING INTERVIEWS ACROSS THE U.S. AND CANADA. In this extensive guidebook for writers interested in discussing their work on the airwaves, Silverman offers descriptions of current shows grouped according to over 30 topics of interest such as Addiction & Recovery, Art, Cars, Food, Health, Law, Paranormal, Pop Culture, History, Relationships, Sports, Technology, Travel, and Writing. She also presents information concerning shows that welcome guest authors as well as those which actually respond to emails and telephone calls.

One of my favorite sections of the book features host profiles of “The Best and Worst Kind of Guests.” Anyone thinking about doing a radio interview should read what these candid hosts have to say right away! In another revealing section, guests discuss their experiences on various radio shows.

Authors who want to promote their books on radio owe a debt of gratitude to Silverman for this valuable resource. Reading TALK RADIO FOR AUTHORS will point them in the right direction and should help them become ideal guests.
