  3. Interview with Tommy Noonan from

    Interview with Tommy from

    Not a lot of people out there talk about how to build a community online, so I thought it would be very interesting to chat with Tommy and ask him those kinds of questions.

    In this interview we talk about: * How Supplement Reviews started and promoted initially

    • The features that make Supplement Reviews successful and lead to it being so high quality

    • How people are rewarded for writing content for the site (hint: it doesn’t cost a cent, and it’s extremely addictive and causes people to return to the site, engage and contribute over and over).

    • How to maintain a high quality of content on a review site and avoid the obvious spammers who are trying to promote their own products

  10. Ser MJS - Adventures in SciFi Publishing, ep 250

    How serendipitous to have big news for our 250th episode? In an effort to keep the lid on the news, I’ll leave the show notes at this. I’ll come back in a day or so and put in some links to stuff we talk about. For now, have a listen, and thanks so much to our audience for keeping us around this long.

    We chatted about an indie gogo campaign coming up for Brent’s friend, Eric Reynolds of Hadley Rille Books, who suffered a stroke recently.

    Moses chats about nearing the finish line with THE NINTH WIND, the first book in his new trilogy. His previous novel, THE BLACK GOD’S WAR is described as a stand alone, similar to how THE HOBBIT is to LORD OF THE RINGS. Yeah, he says he’s that good.

    Just kidding, but it is a good analogy because as we talk about POV shifting, he says that TNW may be a better starting point for people to read his series, or TBGW could be a better start based on preferences for shifting between POVs.

    We chatted about getting good feedback and readers for your fiction. We talked about finding good fiction as readers, including how we read now that we are critical editors for our own writing.
