The Digital Writer, Sean Platt, joins Co-author David Wright and Popular Blogger, Johnny B. Truant for the Self Publishing Podcast

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 09, 2012

Kings of serialized fiction, David Wright and Sean Platt have joined popular blogger Johnny B. Truant for the Self Publishing Podcast. The podcast is designed to help writers learn the ins and outs of indie publishing with intelligence, humor and practical information.

Digital publishing is in a constant shift. Writers now have a ridiculous amount of opportunity, said Truant. Even traditionally published authors are turning self publishing. But that doesnt mean they know how to make the right decisions when it comes to modern publishing. Weve been in the trenches of blogging and social media for years, and want to help other writers do what were doing.

Both Platt and Truant are fluent bloggers and marketers, and both have written for some of the worlds largest blogs, such as Copyblogger, Problogger, and Zen Habits. Platt and Wright have seen remarkable success with their weekly Kindle serials, including landing on the Top 100 Rated Fiction Books of All Time on Amazon, for their debut series, the post-apocalyptic horror serial Yesterdays Gone.

The trio launched the new podcast, located at SelfPublishingPodcast.com, in mid April. Born from a desire to help others achieve the success they were achieving themselves.

The podcast is packed with advice, best practices, and interviews with experts would help others avoid the trial and error theyd had when publishing their own work.

Indie publishing was once expensive and mostly ineffective, said Wright. Now, anyone can publish. And profit. But its also trickier, and youll never sell millions of downloads if you dont put the pieces together correctly.

The Self Publishing Podcast, which publishes new episodes every Thursday, covers topics such as how to get started self-publishing, how to make a compelling book cover, how to market your book, writing and editing tips, how to format for different platforms, and much more.

The podcast is peppered with Truant, Wright and Platts trademark wit and friendly camaraderie. The show is available on the iTunes, Blackberry and Zune podcast directory, as well as non-subscription play through the website at SelfPublishingPodcast.com.

In addition to their serialized fiction, Platt publishes nonfiction through his publishing company Sterling & Stone, as The Digital Writer.

Johnny is known for his humor novel The Bialy Pimps, which debuted with a giant splash through blog publicity in February.

This is a brave new frontier, said Platt. The good news is that any good writer can now make a full-time living purely as a writer, but you must first nderstand how to make it work in order for that to happen. Thats why we started this podcast to help writers understand, and to finally realize their dreams of publication.

Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor Co-Author George Galdorisi Creates New Website

San Diego, California (PRWEB) March 14, 2012

New York Times best-selling writer, George Galdorisi, launched a new website this week. The website features Galdorisis newest release, Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor (AoV), which he co-authored with writer Dick Couch. The Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor book is a novelization of last months top grossing motion picture produced by Bandito Brothers Films and released by Relativity Media that hit the box office on February 24th. The novelization of the film was released on January 10th, and has enjoyed a top-ten ranking on the New York Times best-seller list since it was released, rising to as high as number four on that exclusive list (as well as #4 on the Publishers Weekly list). George Galdorisis extensive naval career and experience as a writer earned him the writing assignment of novelizing this riveting and moving tale about Navy SEALs.

Act of Valor, the film, is an action-packed story based on the dangerous missions that SEAL Teams are called on to execute. The movie casts an elite team of active-duty Navy SEALs to portray the characters in a mission that they could face any day. The AoV story centers on an assignment to recover a captured CIA agent, and quickly becomes an operation to counter a terrorist attack on the United States. The producers of AoV knew that to turn this movie script into a book would be a challenge and required an expert on military strategy, operations, tactics and technology.

His professional experience and writing credentials writing military fiction and non-fiction books, as well as numerous military- and technology-themed articles, made it no surprise that Captain George Galdorisi was selected to team with Captain Dick Couch, a retired Navy SEAL and accomplished writer in his own right, to novelize Act of Valor. A 30 year career as a naval aviator, along with his experience as Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, Commodore, and Chief of Staff, has provided him with unique visibility not only into the what behind military operations, but they why, enabling him to write with insights few writers have. This made him a prime choice to turn the Act of Valor film into a gripping novel.

During his career as a writer, Captain George Galdorisi has produced over two hundred articles for various magazines, professional journals, and newspapers. In addition to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor, he has also written two other novels, The Coronado Conspiracy and For Duty and Honor and several non-fiction books, including Leave No Man Behind, the comprehensive history of Combat Search and Rescue.

The newly launched website highlights Captain Galdorisis extensive writing career including his books, articles, conference papers and speaking engagements.

George Galdorisi commented on his accomplishments with the Act of Valor novel, and the launch of his new website. Having the opportunity to co-author with Dick Couch on Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor was truly an honor. It provided a unique opportunity to highlight the sacrifices that Navy Seals make for our country every day. This new website is a platform to highlight my writing and speaking engagements and enables me to post new information on my blog page regarding new writing projects upcoming speaking engagements, and other material of interest regarding security, military and technology matters.
