Downloadable audio file
BookD offers a fascinating perspective into the world of publishing. Listen to authors discuss their inspiration behind their books, and hear the story of how these books were transformed from the initial concept. Tune in every other week for conversations with the stars of literature, art, film, music, science and politics. Our first parody on the show kicks off with a BOOM with Simon Toyne, author of last years incredible best selling apocalyptic thriller of 2011 'Sanctus'. Toyne sets a blistering pace with his second book 'The Key' leaving the reader hanging after every short chapter. Don't let the heavy subject matter put you off because this podcast talks to Toyne about his thoughts on those avid Dan Brown fans, his journey from being a television writer to published author, and how he quit his job and set off in a knackered van to France to begin writing his first religious thriller. Pretty full on but as always injected with humour from Emad calling Simon a bum and Tanya congratulating him on his 11th birthday! Enjoy!
