  1. Ian, I’ve downloaded with the intent to listen, but it was during the National Novel Writing Month contest and so I didn’t have time for reading/listening to books, with the exception of listening in the car on my way to work. I’ve been working my way through Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land, and once that’s finished I’ll fire Deja Vu up in the car.

    Been thinking a lot lately how difficult it is for the self-published (or any author) to get attention. Books require such a time committment and the barrier to entry is fairly high in terms of mindshare.

    One thought I’ve had is… have you tried seeding various download sites or peer-to-peer programs? The problem with peer-to-peer is that somebody actually has to *look* for your name/book in order to download. Most people don’t just randomly download. So you could try to find places where that’s more the rule.

    I don’t know if there are any podcast ‘collection’ sites or ‘the best of podcasts’ but if you could find anything like that, it’s worth giving it a go.

    Or at least, those are the things I’ve been thinking about for when I eventually record the audio version of my novel.

    Just some thoughts…
