Highlighting Fantasy fiction

I love one of the main premises of this podcast: to help broaden the appeal of fantasy to a wider audience. Hearing from authors, many of whom are indie, gives great insight into their personalities and writing processes and makes me add their books to my TBR pile. As a fellow fantasy author, it’s fun to listen to those who’ve achieved success, especially the SPFBO finalists. I find myself looking forward to each new episode. The hosts are hilarious and each episode flies by as I listen while driving or if I need a break from writing. So glad I found this podcast!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Hilarious and entertaining while also informative and fun to listen too! The host Mike has real character and I couldn’t enjoy listening to the way he explains the books and then adds his own twist! Loved every second of it!!
