Industry = Media
Press Release Summary = Independent author and publisher, Kay Stoner, announces the start of her virtual book tour for her forthcoming book, \"Fuel: Memoirs of a Crisis\".
Press Release Body = This virtual book tour is a podcast series of readings from her book, which tells the tale of two Americans stranded in Cornwall (Southwestern England) during the fuel protests and crisis of 2000.
Combining readings of sections from \"Fuel\" with ambient sound effects of audiences talking, laughing, and clapping, Kay creates an environment like she\'s experienced at live readings. \"I originally had thought about doing a real-life book tour for Fuel,\" she says. \"But I\'ve got a lot of personal responsibilities and I don\'t have the time or money to launch a full-scale book reading tour. I\'ve been podcasting for a number of months, now, and it occurred to me that I could produce a \"virtual\" book tour that sounds just like recorded book tours I\'ve seen on cable television, or hear on the radio. The only difference, is that the audience sounds are \"canned\". My potential real-life audience, however, is probably much greater than what I could attract with readings at local bookstores or art galleries or public libraries.\"
With podcasting, Kay intendes to reach an international audience, who will download her audio and subscribe to her podcast feed, which they can find listed in major podcast directories, as well as at her podcasting site Podtopia.net. She\'s also writing a creator\'s guide for other authors who want to launch an international book tour, but lack the funds, the money, or the connections, to tour.
