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

We're proud to be indie publishers at www.hobeck.net It's an exciting movement to be part of, but as we explore every week here on The Hobcast Book Show the reality of running a start-up publishing house is far tougher than some would have you believe. That's also been the experience of our guest, Dan Morgan, a Welsh author of Scandi-noir novels under the pen name Morgan Greene. Dan has built a strong following for his novels featuring DI Jamie Johannson, but as he tells Adrian and Rebecca, the path to success has been challenging. In the first of a two-part interview, Dan explains the path to becoming a bestselling author requires courage, talent, and perseverance.

Also this week, we discuss the shocking revelation of how the big publishers can buy their positions in the retail charts, and the welcome news that proposed changes to UK copyright laws have been postponed.

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.
