Author Nabs Book Deal Using His Podcast

18 12 2007

We just talked about how award-winning science fiction authors are putting out their work as self-produced podcasts, and already the bar has been raised. Novelist J.C. Hutchins recently wrote three books, entitled Descent, Deceit, and Destruction, respectively, that make up a trilogy called the 7th Son. As he wrote the chapters he read them aloud, recorded them, and released them as podcasts, along the way picking up 30,000 listeners and getting his work profiled in the New York Times. That effort paid off as Hutchins just announced he signed a contract with St. Martin’s Press to publish Descent. Congrats to Hutchins on the contract and for promoting podcasting to the science fiction world.
