The Hobcast Book Show has been nominated as one of twenty of the best UK Mystery Podcasts of 2021 by Best Startup and Number 10 in the Top 40 Mystery Book Podcasts.
We are also thrilled to be in this selection of podcasts about writing as chosen by Sam Missingham.
Since we began The Hobcast Book Show just over three years ago, we've spoken to a number of former police officers turned authors. All of them have fascinating stories to share, and valuable insights into how to mix the reality of policing with the need to tell a good story. Our interview with thriller author Roger A. Price follows that tradition. A former Detective Inspector, with a thirty-one police career and extensive experience running under cover operations, Roger has been a published author for a decade. His most recent novels,The D.S Martin Draker series are published by Sharpe Books. In this fascinating interview, we discuss what authors get right and get wrong about policing, and Roger shares his thoughts on how he judges if his books have the right balance of action, dialogue and exposition.
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.
