Pure and simple. Do you want to speak directly to Random House when you know they are listening? Or to HarperCollins, Hachette, Simon and Schuster? Penguin? To a top literary agency or publicist?
Then why don't you interrupt them?
Paperback Radio interviews the nation's bestselling authors. They talk about their book and get to choose the music. The publisher listens. The author's agent and publicist also listen. Live.
At the end of a song interruption you have 15 seconds to tell the big publisher about your book. They are listening not because of you but because of their big author. That's why you interrupt. They cannot help but hear your commercial. And we will let you know in advance which interview your book will interrupt, and which big publisher will be listening. It will only be one of these: HarperCollins, Random House, Hachette, Simon and Schuster, Penguin.
Here's how it sounds: http://www.paperbackradio.com/interrupt-the-interview.mp3. This is an interview with Random House children's author Natasha Wing. One of the commercials could have been yours. It's like having a shot at an elevator pitch, where you're alone with the other guy and you have 15 seconds to make them interested in your book.
Your 15-second book commercial will play during a bestselling author interview on Paperback Radio. You, as do they, will receive a copy of the interview, in case you can't listen live. The interview, with your commercial, is aired multiple times that particular day and remains available on Paperback Radio's home page for at least 3 months.
