Podcast novelists and their audience enjoy the intimacy of the medium, but still depend on brief blurbs and book covers to find a match. We make this connection simpler.

Our goal is to provide an inclusive podcast for listeners interested in upcoming Podiobooks.com releases, and indie authors, while giving them a voice in promoting their work to an interested audience. Consider us the TV Guide of independent authors.

We will:

  1. Provide Podiobooks.com listeners with information on new works appearing on the Podiobooks.com calendar.
  2. Give Independent authors a chance to introduce their work in their own words.
  3. Serve as a conduit of information on author sponsored contests, successes, and industry news.
  4. Share related tips, tricks, and insider information.

The Cast

Podioracket.com is primarily the brain child of Rhonda R. Carpenter and H.E. Roulo, though we enjoy the talents of many guest authors, listeners, and friends.
