The wonderful and talented Morgan Z. Sowell of The Table Round podcast (here it is on iTunes) made the kind offer that I could create a radio ad for my series that he would broadcast on his show. He does this as a pure kindness for Arthurian authors, which is… awesome and quite chivalrous. The Table Round is an ongoing audio drama that dramatizes stories from the Arthurian legend in a way that is quite intelligent and interesting and with GREAT production quality. I was actually quite blown away by the episodes that I listened to, and you should check it out!
Anyway, Morgan’s offer was made quite a few months ago, but myself being self-defeating and always intrigued by new and innovative ways to sabotage my own success, I let this offer languish while I focused on other things (like writing Book 4). But then I finally sat down and wrote it, recorded it and slapped on some music, and the result… sounds like a radio ad. Which is to say it sounds a bit like I’m advertising a heartburn pill, but regardless, here is the ad:
What do you think? If it has encouraged you to run off and buy my books, please, go do that first! Then I’d love to hear any comments you may have on it, feel free to share!
It was great to be able to address an audience already interested in the Arthurian legend, and I wanted to be sure to emphasize the commitment of my series to remaining faithful to the actual legend, and that the novels try hard to maintain the tone and weird magic of the Middle English sources. Definitely look forward to seeing how effective this ad is with this audience.
That’s it for now, listen to The Table Round and let me know anything you think!
