This episode Scrolls flips over the page to see things from the other side in terms of starting out as a writer. Acting as a companion piece to the Author Interviews
the SFX Weekender we've pulled together three authors who have
taken non-traditional approaches to getting their fiction out into
the public domain.
Joining Phil and Clover in a virtual round-table discussion of their experiences, and the pros and cons of these alternative avenues are:-
Nugent (Shadowy Godfather of the Geek Syndicate and
author of Fallen
Heroes, self published through Lulu's print-on-demand service)
Alex Keller (Author of pre-teen steampunk novels Haywired and Rewired, printed by small-press publisherMogzilla) and
Mark Bell (Author of folk horror novel Binder of Bone, Keeper of Corn which he has published exclusively as an e-book).
Here are some additional links to items mentioned in the episode that may be of interest to you:

Normal Service - i.e. blather, banter and bullshit about books - resumes soon in the next episode 'Life, the Multiverse and Everything.'
