11 podcasts for readers, writers and story lovers

It used to be that I would listen to the radio while driving around, but since being introduced to podcasts a number of years ago, my commutes have been completed listening to some funny and interesting conversations and some incredible stories. My podcast list is stupidly long (and consequently my backlog to listen to is unrealistic), so rather than regale you with every single podcast I subscribe to, I thought I’d highlight those I enjoy for the readers and writers among you.

The 8 authors who will always take my money

I am a publisher’s or marketer’s dream customer. I am one of those people who will snap up new books by certain authors without having read any reviews about their latest book, simply because I either really admire them as people, or because people I admire have recommended them, or because I have read some of their work and have enjoyed what I’ve read to date. My book buying addiction, coupled with this, has led to my bookshelves being full of way too many books I haven’t gotten around to reading yet because my favoured authors maintain a solid publishing schedule (how dare they!). Surely I’m not alone in this though; is this something you do, too?
