Susan Wingate's Radio Show for Authors, DIALOGUE: BETWEEN THE LINES
In 2009, Susan Wingate was writing constantly and had a couple titles published but marketing her books was nearly impossible. She had to go to the expense of a publicist or consider advertising space. Although Wingate needed some media exposure, she found most TV and radio programs only featured celebrated fiction authors or nonfiction authors.
Wingate decided to create a media platform herself and figured that creating an online radio program couldn't be that difficult. And it wasn't.
She found that other fiction authors were searching for platforms to chat about their work as well. Within a few months, her radio show calendar was full. Publishers and publicists were contacting Dialogue to showcase their authors' books too.
Dialogue now is booked out with authors such as Debbie Macomber who will be featured in February 2014. In addition, Garth Stein, Deb Caletti, Steve Berry, Guy Kawasaki, CC Humphreys are on Dialogue. Joshua Graham, Terry Persun and Aaron Patterson are also guests. Even "The Amazing Kreskin" was on Dialogue.
Recently, Dialogue received syndication through a larger network of author online talk shows called Authors on the Air Global Network, produced by Pam Stack. The show has proven to be a regular stop for amazing authors and Wingate says she feels "blessed to be able to speak with each and every one of them." The listeners are people who want to learn about great authors-new and veteran-and to learn about each writer's life. Wingate commented about the authors she speaks with, "My guests rock."
Dialogue: Between the Lines airs live each Thursday, one o'clock p.m. Eastern Standard Time (10 a..m. PST) on www.blogtalkradio.com/authorsontheair. Each week Susan Wingate posts her guest on www.dialoguebetweenthelines.com.
