The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 023): Interview with Gail Carriger + Is social media good for the book industry, publishing and authors

In episode 23 of the SF Signal Podcast, Patrick Hester asks the SF Signal contributors & irregulars:

Is social media good for the book industry, publishing and authors?

With Twitter and Facebook, publisher, author and fan are more connected than ever before. Is this instant communication good for everyone or has it become a distraction? Are the days of the anonymous author gone forever?

Later, Karen Burnham sits down to talk with Gail Carriger, author of Soulless, Changeless, Blameless & Heartless.

One thought on “The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 023): Interview with Gail Carriger + Is social media good for the book industry, publishing and authors”

  1. As a reader I love the social media …

    It has introduced me to several authors I whose work I would probably have never shelled out a hard earned dollar for.  Simply because I knew nothing about their writing, but after reading/hearing/whatever them across various media outlets I decided to pick up their work because they seemed like cool people.

    Conversely, it has also provided me with insights to the personalities of several authors whose work I will most likely never give monetary support (even some whose work I enjoy).
