The GetPublished! premiere hour-long episode features three in-studio interviews with authors: William Anthony (I Am Fire and Air, YA sci-fi), Gary Young (Loss and Found: How We Survived the Loss of a Young Spouse), and Ruth Frechman (The Food Is My Friend Diet). Gary is also Director of Professional Development of IWOSC and President of the Publishers Association of Los Angeles.

Before concentrating primarily on fiction, he authored, coauthored, or ghost-wrote more than thirty business and technical books for mainstream publishers, including How to Lie with Charts. He's a member of the Writers Guild of America, the Dramatists Guild, Women's National Book Association, and Film Independent (FIND), as well as a past director of the Independent Writers of Southern California (IWOSC). He blogs at Boychik Lit. He is a top reviewer on Goodreads.com and has hosted a regular book review segment on KRLA 870 AM radio in Los Angeles. His reviews are also published on the Web by Splash Magazines Worldwide.
This pilot episode is produced to a one-hour broadcast clock, with breaks for billboards and spots. The podcast is available at www.getpublished.guru/radio, and soon from iTunes Store, Stitcher, and Feedburner.
Call-ins from listeners on this podcast episode are performed by hired actors who pose actual questions received from subscribers to the GetPublished! website Forum page.
To get involved with the show, Gerald encourages listeners to register at the website and post comments to the Forum, which becomes a searchable knowledge base for all kinds of questions and concerns the users have about their projects. The site also includes detailed lists of resources and vendors, with separate pages tailored to Authors, Publishers, and Promoters.
As Gerald likes to say, "GetPublished! is your doorway to unlimited self-expression!"
