Writing Cross Genre: Putney, Klasky, Knight and Agent Kristin

I had the pleasure, along with Nebula award winner Catherine Asaro, to co-host an internet radio show on CROSS GENRE FICTION last week. Guests were:
Mary Jo Putney, Mindy Klasky, Angela Knight,
and literary agent Kristin Nelson:

It's a two hour show. A long time to sit and listen so here's a tip: it's in approximately 20-23 minute segments with guest appearances as follows:





You can use the player's slider to advance to the segment you want to listen to, or download it to your own player.
Lots of terrific information on writing to genre expectations, crafting multi-genre books and some valuable insights from Agent Kristin on what NY is looking for...and why.

Enjoy! ~Linnea

  1. Really interesting podcast. Particularly the comments on the problems of covers and which shelf to have it on in bookshops!
    It was good to be reminded how little control most authors have over the covers, which is a shame as much as we know we shouldn't - we still do "judge a book by its cover".
