Last night, as I was thinking about all the excellent podcasts I listen to, a tweet came across my Tweetdeck reminding me that one of the authors I follow on Twitter, Brand Gamblin – @brandg, was offering a free .pdf copy of his novel Tumber to anyone that would review it.
As I thought about this, I decided to start a new category on View from Valhalla. In a nutshell, I will start discussing/reviewing podcasts, and perhaps other social media, that I enjoy. Generally, I will be discussing fiction podcasts (although I all ready know of a few nonfiction that will be included) and most of the time, I will try to limit myself to those that are complete. However, as Tee Morris from the Birdhouse Rules podcast (one of the nonfiction podcasts we’ll eventually get to) is fond of reminding us, it’s my house, they’re my rules. And in my case, I’ll break them when I want to.
I might as well state now that most of the reviews, at least to being with, are probably going to be pretty positive, because they’re ones I personally listen to and do recommend to others. However, I will also be giving my honest opinion.
I hope you enjoy some of the podcasts we’ll be looking at and I’m definitely looking for discussion, so feel free to post contradicting view points. (No flaming of the authors or the podcasts however please.)
The fun will begin (very) soon! If you have a podcast you would like to see reviewed (whether your the author, a fan, or just would rather someone else listen to it first), let me know.
