Is podcasting something all authors should plan to do? Is it another expected social media presence like posting or blogging? Can it be done inexpensively? When would you know whether you need professional help?

Co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Tom Page join Gerald Everett Jones in a roundtable discussion of these questions, as well as the basic issue of how to engage your audience.

Portions of this show were recorded at a meeting of the Independent Writers of Southern California (IWOSC) with contributions from President Gary Young and board member Steven Sanchez.

What is food to you? Friend or foe or earthly delight? Today's topic is how-to books on nutrition and cuisine.

Gerald, Cheyenne, and Tom are joined in studio by our fellow writer Sarah Ambrosio, who is planning to coauthor a "couples cookbook" with her new husband. We help her think through some of the questions she's been asking about how to get a how-to book done.

After the break, we have an interview with Ruth Frechman, registered dietitian nutritionist and award-winning author, who wrote The Food Is My Friend Diet. She’s going to talk not only about how to be smart about food choices, but also how her book has become her business calling card for building her professional practice.
