Tomorrow at 17:00 PDT (or 20:00 EDT, or barely into Wednesday at 00:00 GMT) you can hear the organizer of The Shebeen Club interviewed on Blog Talk Radio with Wayne Herlbert. In addition to the possibility he’ll mention an up-coming title or two for his publishing house, here’s what Mr. Herlbert is claiming will be discussed:
Independent book publisher and President of Atomic Fez Publishing, Ian Alexander Martin, shares his views on current and future trends in the publishing industry. Ian describes the challenges facing publishers in the current economy and with the rapid changes taking place in the publishing industry. Ian shares his thoughts on genre busting fiction, developing a niche market for specific titles, and how an author can get published in today’s highly competitive marketplace. Ian also offers some advice for successful online book marketing including some very unique and unexpected tactics for which Atomic Fez has become famous.
Frankly, it might be a bit of a stretch to say that “Atomic Fez Publishing has become famous”, but we’re hardly going to dissuade Mr. Herlbert at this point.
The interview is an hour long, so Ian will have to work at being briefer than normal. More than likely, about half-way through everyone will get far off the subject and start debating the various advantages of tea-making techniques. Also possible is comparing of the cinematic visions of Akira Kurosawa v. Francis Ford Coppola or Terry Gilliam v. Orson Welles.
It’s also entirely likely that they’ll talk about books. You never know.
