Sought-After Guest Soars on Authors Access Radio



Frugal Message Hits Top Spot for AuthorsAccess Listeners


Ann Arbor, MI--Cohosts of Authors Access radio, Victor R. Volkman and Irene Watson, announced multi award-winning author Carolyn Howard-Johnson was the #1 most popular guest on AuthorsAccess.com podcasts for the year 2008.


Volkman says, "With more than 1,000 listeners this year, Carolyn again proved the lasting power of her Frugal Book Promotion message. Not only is her message popular, but it's way out in front of all the other guests, the 2nd most popular podcast was 20% behind Carolyn's.  We wish Carolyn continued success in 2009 and we are certain her message will become even more important as economic turmoil continues." That podcast may be found at   http://authorsaccess.com/archives/90

This is the 2nd year that Howard-Johnson has starred at AuthorsAccess. In 2007 she was also among the most listened to among industry luminaries and gurus such as Mark David Gerson, Jacqueline Church, and JC Simonds. Authors will also find helpful podcasts from well-known names like John Kremer, Shel Horowitz and Patricia Fry on AuthorAccess.


Authors Access is a joint project of Loving Healing Press and ReaderViews. It features interviews from people around the world who can help authors better manage their writing careers. The show is recorded live each Thursday evening and posted immediately on www.AuthorsAccess.com. Since 2006, aspiring authors have browsed and downloaded more than 75 posted podcast shows for free.  And they come back  again and again: more than 50,000 podcast episode MP3s are downloaded per year.


Watson is the owner/manager of Reader Views, an Austin, Texas, based company that offers book reviews, publicity packages, editing services, as well as support to up and coming authors. The company provides quality service with professionalism, efficiency, and personal attention.


Victor R. Volkman is the publisher/owner of Loving Healing Press, an Ann Arbor, Michigan, based independent press that produces books in the Self-Help, Psychology, and New Age genres. It empowers authors to produce books which redefine what is possible for healing mind and spirit.
