“Calling All Authors” weekly radio show pilot airs November 23, 2005. Great information and interesting interviews every aspiring author needs to hear.

Publisher, Valerie Connelly will be hosting the pilot program “Calling All Authors” on the Global Talk Radio station at in the live broadcast at 12 pm CST (1 pm EST and 10 am PST). Ms. Connelly said, “I have the goal of bringing informative publishing industry trends along with author and expert interviews to all writers who are holding back from publishing their work. There are so many writers who get discouraged by the rejection inherent in the search for a publisher and who are unprepared to become self-publishers. We have built our business on the concept of author-centric publishing. We want to bring this revolutionary idea to the writing public with this radio program. The program will have a call-in segment for writers to pose questions directly to a publisher. I wish I had been able to do that when I was starting out.”

Nightengale Press has been looking for a radio station to host a weekly talk show presenting information and entertainment for aspiring authors. With a growing roster of talented authors at Nightengale Press interviewing at Global Talk Radio, it seemed only natural to connect with this growing internet radio station. “The mission of both Nightengale press and Global Talk Radio is put their clients first. This is one of the more important reasons we want to work with them,” Ms. Connelly said.

The mission at Nightengale Press is simply to put authors first through ease of production, nearly instant availability and the cutting edge of worldwide publishing services today, authors receive publishing information, marketing training, one-on-one product development of their books, industry connectivity, online visibility, affiliate programs, to keep the profit from their work, and a helping hand from the start. “Our business has increased very rapidly since we first offered our revolutionary publishing services in 2004. We published 11 new titles in the first year and added 29 new titles in our second year. That’s an increase of nearly 300 percent. We are very pleased, and our authors are pleased, and it seems natural to bring this success to those aspiring authors who are looking for a reasonable way to get into print,” Ms. Connelly said.     

Kevin Dawson works with the hosts and said, “Global Talk Radio (GTR) began streaming in April, 2005. In the first 10 weeks, we received over 500,000 hits. Several hundred unique listeners tune in each day, primarily to listen to archives of interest on-demand. Many listeners stream through multiple archives of different shows in one visit. And our audience is soaring: up an average 40 percent per month. In fact, Global Talk Radio has earned the reputation of “the fastest growing internet talk radio station. The Global Talk Radio mission is to promote the growth, prosperity and well-being of those we serve: our listeners and sponsors. Global Talk Radio is committed to becoming the industry leader for producing top-quality programming and matching our content with a highly-targeted internet audience to provide the best possible experience for our listeners. Furthermore, we consider it our responsibility to contribute to the future of radio and broadcasting ― programming which will be produced and streamed across the internet, replacing conventional AM and FM outlets.”

“I am a believer in the future of the internet radio world,” said Ms. Connelly, “and I want to start this part of our business with a radio station that promotes a similar view as ours. We intend to make this program fun and informative, not deadly boring and self-serving. We look at this opportunity as a chance to serve all aspiring writers who want to bring their work off the shelf and into the marketplace.”

“We look forward to launching the weekly show in January 2006. So, tune in on Wednesday to hear what’s happening on Calling All Authors. Our guests are author Bunny Kidd who will explain how she goes about getting publicity for her events, and Pat DiPrima, owner of In Black and White, which is a writing workshop that teaches writing skills in colleges and universities in the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin region. She will be discussing what writers workshops can and cannot do for writers” This pilot show will be part of “Public Access Radio”, and although this particular episode will be subtitled “Calling All Authors”, it will be found on the “Public Access Radio” page. When the show launches in January,. it will have its own Show Page and will be listed on the Show Schedule and Archives pages under “Calling All Authors.”
