Breaking Radio Silence

It’s been over two years since I’ve talked about my books on the radio, and I’ve written a few hundred thousand words since then, but the long national nightmare is finally over.

Tune into KOOP FM 91.7 (or online at koop.org) at 6 pm CST on Wednesday 1/28/2015 to hear me discussing Postcards from Fred and Open Season on the program Writing on the Air.

To hold you over, here are some highlights from the 2012 show.

Muffin Man Cover Art Redux

One detail I should have covered and, and one that is very important in marketing books, is viewing the covers in the sizes they will appear on online sales channels. The art may look good on the book, but if it doesn’t grab the shopper at pixel sizes 56 x 86, 85 x 115, and 190 x 260. The middle size is particularly important as it is displayed it the list of hits.
Does that change your vote?

Muffin Man tribute

Norm, technical consultant on the poker scenes in Muffin Man, brought me this gift on New Year’s Eve. In case you can’t tell, that shiny dark thing is a muffin in plastic wrap.
Status report on Muffin Man: Second draft will begin in two weeks. I’m shooting for an April Fool’s Day release. We shall see if I make it.
BradNotes subscribers get an exclusive sneak peek at Muffin Man: Day 1, the first 75 pages of the first draft, and an email notice when the book comes out. Sign up by sending an email to BradNotes@BradWhittington.com.
You can catch the first page here.
UPDATE 1-5-2012: I ate the muffin. It was more like a mini chocolate cake, very moist and quite good with medium roast Columbian coffee made strong. Num!
