Hey Authors, Starship Sofa Wants Your First Chapter


Starship Sofa captain Tony C. Smith sent along this press release aimed at authors looking to word out about their new releases…

First Chapters Wanted!

If you have a science fiction or fantasy novel just out or due out very soon – if you can send me ten minutes of narrated audio or the first chapter (whichever comes first) – we’ll play it on StarShipSofa! Similar to Scalzi’s Big Idea but in audio format.

It’s my intention to add one of these to each and every StarShipSofa show, which I’m calling First Chapters. The Sofa is released each and every week. It’s your chance for a little exposure.

So… here’s what I’m after. It can be any kind of science fiction or fantasy. It has to be an mp3, mono, 128kbps and 10mins long. I also need attached to the beginning of the narration, a couple of minutes of you plugging your book – informing the Sofa listeners what will happen in the book, when the book is out, how much it is and where to buy it.

A word of warning about audio quality! Make it the best recording you can. A clean audio file is what we are after. If your mp3 file has excessive amounts of hiss or word stumbles, explosives (words beginning with P or B) paper rustling – it won’t get played.

Send all audio files to Tony C. Smith starshipsofa@gmail dot com
