The Hobcast Book Show has been nominated as one of twenty of the best UK Mystery Podcasts of 2021 by Best Startup.

It's back! The Theakstons Old PeculiEr Crime Writing Festival survived months of uncertainty to return to Harrogate in spectacular fashion, and the Hobcast was there to join in the fun. In this week's bumper episode, we speak to the godfather of British crime fiction Ian Rankin about the challenge of finishing another writer's work. S. J. Parris reflects on how the pandemic has affected her creative process, and Mark Billingham reveals some of the secrets of what happens when the UK's leading crime authors meet at the bar. Plus Adrian and Rebecca speak to the inspirational Martyn Waites about his work in prisons helping inmates to find their voice. It's Hobeck Books on tour, Harrogate-style!

In The Hobcast Book Show, Adrian Hobart and Rebecca Collins, the founders of Hobeck, aim to get under the skin of launching a publishing company from scratch in the midst of the pandemic.
Each week, Adrian and Rebecca will discuss the key issues of the week, the ups and downs of running a creative business, and they'll hear from the people who make Hobeck possible: the authors, the editors and the cover designers who help them bring great stories to life.
If you're an aspiring author, self-publishing, working in independent or traditional publishing, or just love books - this is the podcast for you.
