Customer Reviews

MarieInNYC ,

Really informative, but mixed audio quality

Author U Your Guide to Book Publishing is a wonderful podcast. Judith is a writer and consultant with a lot of experience with both traditional publishing and self-publishing. She has wonderful guests and asks great questions. However, the sound quality is generally mediocre. This wouldn’t be awful except that the sound quality on the commercial breaks is excellent, so the contrast between the show and the commercials can be really pronounced. I would give the show 5 stars for content but only 3 stars for audio, which is why I’m giving it a 4 star review.
