Here are the show notes:
On this episode of The Writer and the Critic, Kirstyn McDermott and Ian Mond announce a New Idea for a future episode of the podcast. They would like to spend an episode reviewing a handful originally self-published eBooks as recommended by their listeners. Whether this ends up being a Good Idea or a Bad Idea will largely depend on listener participation, so get listening and get participating. There may even be prizes involved … more info on this next month once they work out what potential prizes they actually have to offer! After a discussion about their current (e)reading habits and changes in book buying practices, the duo then move onto talk about the two books chosen for the podcast this month.
A lengthy discussion of and around — and around and around — Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord begins at 18:30 with the conversation about Zoo City by Lauren Beukes starting at 01:07:30. Yes, it’s a long podcast this time. That’s what happens with books that are interesting, intelligent and inspiring.
Tune back in around the 01:57:20 point for final remarks.
