Get featured on a webfiction podcast!

[Updated on July 4 2012]

Greg X Graves and I, in collaboration with The Webcast Beacon, have set up a podcast called Webfiction World, dedicated entirely to webfiction!

Any news?
We will be running semi-regular newscasts episodes -- shorter than a normal podcast, covering any updates or developments in the webfiction and digital publishing world.

If you have any news to share -- landmark moments, new serials launching, publications, webfiction developments, events, etc -- tell me via email at annamichelleharte [at] gmail [dot] com

Get your story featured!
NOTE - we have a considerable backlog of readings for the moment.

We are always looking for authors interested in getting their story featured on the show.

Every episode will have a 5-10 minute reading slot, with of course credits & links to the author. So we're looking for short stories or webfiction excerpts (MAX 1,500 words) to feature during these slots.

If you have a short story or (fairly standalone) excerpt from your serial that could work well for readings, and that you'd be happy to let us read/record/perform in our podcast, please drop a line in the comments.

Please follow the format below:

Title: Above Ground
Author: A.M. Harte
Word count: xxx words

Curious to hear what the readings sound like before you submit? Check out Episode 02 which includes a reading from MCA Hogarth's webfiction Spots the Space Marine.

Like the sound of your voice?
You're also welcome to submit readings directly -- ie, you reading aloud your work. All the details for that are here

Want more?
Please also drop me a line if you're not afraid of talking to strangers & would be interested in being a guest on the show. We aim to record on Sundays circa 3pm Eastern time via Skype, but could perhaps be flexible with timings.

Note: If we choose to feature you/your work, we WILL be slow in getting back to you -- perhaps even a couple months -- because the podcast is roughly monthly. But I'm keeping an eye on this thread, rest assured!

    This is a great idea!

    Hmm, I don't really have anything standalone. :/

    I wouldn't mind being a guest though if you want. I'd need to get Skype and a working microphone.

    Yeah Becka, I saw on twitter that you were interested in being a guest. When you get Skype/microphone let me know :-)

    I wouldn't mind being a guest when I come back from holiday in June.

    I'm not entirely sure how you define "fairly standalone" so I can't determine if any of my chapters would be appropriate.

    I'm not sure I've got a segment (yet) that stands alone. I'd be interested, though!

    I'll bite!

    Title: Spots the Space Marine
    Author: M.C.A. Hogarth
    Excerpt: The Violinist.

    Or my previous ones:

    Title: The Aphorisms of Kherishdar
    Author: M.C.A. Hogarth
    Excerpt: Azjelin.

    Title: Flight of the Godkin Griffin
    Author: M.C.A. Hogarth
    Excerpt: The Cavalry Captain.

    I'd also be delighted to show up as a guest on a podcast! And 3PMs on Sunday are pretty good for me (that's Eastern Daylight, right?).

    The first chapter of "The Surprising Life and Death of Diggory Franklin" might be good for this, and it's 1083 words.

    @ ubersoft, Erin Klitzke - if you're not sure, just submit a piece that you think might work, and we'll take a look. Basically think about the fact that listeners will not know ANYTHING about your story/characters, so it still needs to make sense to them. So I think initial/intro chapters could work well; something that leaves readers curious to discover more.

    @ MCA & Gavin Perfect, thanks! I'll look through the links & get them sent over to the podcast producer/recorder Fes, who's the one sorting out getting recordings/readings done.

    I'll start up a list of names of people interested in being guests so I know who to reach out to closer to the time.

    Also yes, we record around 3pm Eastern / New York time.

    I'm interested.

    Title: The Legion of Nothing: Red Lightning's Shadow
    Author: Jim Zoetewey
    Excerpt: Chapter 3 [1602 words]

    Here's another that would work:

    Title: The Legion of Nothing: Red Lightning's Shadow
    Author: Jim Zoetewey
    Excerpt: In the Public Eye: Part 30 [1080 words]

    3pm Sunday would work for me. You can email me at jz(at)

    Sounds good! Just pop me an email with arrangements, I'm at haikujaguar at gmail.

    Just did a quick check, and unfortunately the first chapter of Pay Me, Bug! is 3600 words long. In fact the majority of the chapters I've posted so far exceed 3000 words, the ones that don't unfortunately don't work as well stand-alone.

    Curse you fame, you are so fleeting! ;-)

    Hello. I have this one if it will be useful to you.

    Title: Simple Chocolate
    Author: EK Gonzales
    Link: over here (1750 words)

    I'm from the Philippines, so that's +0800 GMT, 3pm Eastern would be 3am to me, so sorry about that. But I'll answer any email-sent questions if that will be alright.

    I have a pair of poems and a few short stories that help to promote the biggest serial I wrote, the Adventures of Black Mask & Pale Rider.

    Title: Black Mask & Pale Rider: The Broach it's a pdf file found here
    Author: Tim Holtorf
    Excerpt: 2578

    I'm usually around in the afternoon on a Sunday, I'm currently in CST (Saskatchewan doesn't have Daylight Savings, so we never change our clocks).

    Let me know what you want to arrange and when. My e-mail is cs at streetofeyes dot com.

    Also, if you'd be interested in running more of a story on STREET, I could stump up a free book or two for a contest/something in that vein. In June, when I'm back from holiday.
