The idea to do Cocktail Hour came from a few conversations Andy and I had with some other folks about doing a podcast where we talk about stuff we read. An audio review, essentially. I had already created the blogspots for Lesbian Fiction Review and Fan Fiction Review and was pretty burned out on writing my thoughts out after reading. Talking about what I’ve read, while having a drink, seemed like an idea I could get behind.
Of course, actually doing it was completely different. I’m good on ideas, bad on follow through. But Andy is a very persistent woman and before I knew what was happening, we were recording. I’ve got to say, I’m happy we are. I’ve gained a friend out of the deal and have gotten to get drunk on a whole new group of drinks! With the booze, the friends, and the good reads, what more could I want?
Cocktail Hour has grown so much since our first show. We now have a forum, a Goodreads group, a Cafe Press store, and a phone line that allows our listeners to record question and comments for the shows 747-224-7763 (747-2CH-PROD. We’re hosting writing contests, have loads of great guests, provide a venue for our listeners to get information about their projects out into the community, movie reviews and even more stuff in development.
Thank you all, so much, for helping us!
