THIS WEEK'S FEATURED CLIENT
Seth Harwood became an online publishing sensation when he created the
Jack Palms Crime Podcase Series in July 2006. His podcast audience grew into a size-able world-wide following, gaining the attention of the San Francisco Chronicle and other media outlets.
In March 2008, Breakneck Books published JACK WAKES UP and Seth’s online audience (the Palms Daddies and Palms Mommas) jumped all over Amazon.com and bought enough copies to raise the book to #1 in Crime/Mystery and #45 overall in books. JACK WAKES UP was subsequently
purchased by THREE RIVERS PRESS (Random House) and will be re-released in May 2009.
If you cover books in your blog and you would like a copy of Seth's JACK WAKES up or an interview with him, please login to his profile and request!

Crawling is a 2 hour long weekly podcast / live broadcast that tackles
all the issues of the day with a whole new spin on the world. As the
host I drive the show with stories from my past, my current
experiences, and I always ask why we do what we do as humans. We have a
few sayings on the show, but the best one is 'You never know what your
going to get from Bear Crawling - and thats a good thing.'
