Our mission at BookGoodies.com is to present information for authors to be able to make wise choices in their writing and publishing journey and give all authors a chance to be discovered, reviewed and read.
BookGoodies is one of the few sites that cares about both the author and the reader. Authors are encouraged to engage readers and inspire other authors. There are plenty of opportunities for authors to share their work and for readers to discover new works that fit their interests.
In addition to connecting readers, bloggers and authors, we strive to educate authors.
Education is key, our podcasts are here for authors and others to share their methods, ideas, writing tips, marketing tips and working tips.
BookGoodies has over 150 podcasts recorded of interviews with authors, publishers and other service providers for authors and aspiring writers, with many more to come. This is a wealth of information that we would like to transcribe and shape into books of advice for authors and writers about everything from writing techniques to choosing the right way to publish to marketing and everything in between.
Getting podcasts transcribed and edited is expensive and we need your support to be able to create the great books that we envision. Our podcasts are not simple question and answer, they are discussions with people about a topic they are passionate about and every interview reveals something new and exciting.
We tried the inexpensive transcription route and that lead to more editing time. So we have chosen a company that does both transcription and editing with an average cost of $50 – $60 per podcast. Once the podcasts are transcribed and have the initial edit, then they need to be reviewed to pull out the relevant parts to create the actual books from, then those books need to be edited. Those costs haven’t been established but will be substantial.
Why do we want to do this? Because the information that comes out of these discussions is too valuable to not be shared. We need sponsors to help us bring this information to light that will be valuable to those that don’t have time to listen to all the podcasts and that even if they do, they might miss something important while taking notes about something they heard. Like laughing at a scene in a movie and missing the next lines because you were still laughing from the previous scene.
All sponsors at any amount will receive recognition on our sponsors page, plus a shout out on a future podcast.
