Kristine Kathryn Rusch joins us for a special two segment interview. First, we discuss the changing publishing industry, including why Kris says new writers should not seek agents at this time, the changing marketplace, the use of ebooks to revive older series that traditional publishers no longer wish to publish, and what writers don’t understand about book contracts and agency contracts. Then Kris returns to discuss CITY OF RUINS, DIVING INTO THE WRECK, her many pen-names, archaeology, her use of short chapters, and so much more.
Finally, this episode features our Summer of Scifi Trivia question! Make sure to write down your answer somewhere you won’t lose it, and listen to SF Signal and I Should be Writing for the other two questions. 12 books are up for grabs!
