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

What do readers want? That's the question we ask ourselves every day at Hobeck Books. The truth is, that changes all the time, but there's no doubt that if a writer can connect emotionally with a reader, you're going to find plenty of readers. Our guest this week, Caron McKinlay published her first novel The Storytellers this week, and already the feedback has been overwhelming, with many readers saying they've been moved to tears by her tale of three women recalling their lives and debating if any of them have experienced real love. Caron draws heavily from her own experiences and those of her family and friends. It's a powerful book, and a great interview.

Also this week, Rebecca reveals her shock at her alma mater, The University of Wolverhampton cutting Fine Art from their prospectus, and Adrian discusses the latest data showing E-book sales have dropped dramatically in the past year in the UK.

And as promised, you can book tickets to meet Hobeck author Malcolm Hollingdrake at an event in Wigan on June 11th 2022 - tickets available from https://www.theoldcourts.com/shows/crime-at-the-old-courts-meet-the-authors/

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.
