    So, basically what Baen's been doing with TheFifthImperium for 10+ years with dozens of books?
    Probably more informative than one guy with one book.

      Re:

      ...or, a completely different approach to a similar idea, potentially with lots of great insight for people preferring to go alone rather than tie themselves to a publisher. But, yeah, just trash the whole thing without doing anything than read a one sentence description, it's easier that way.

      Also, why would the experiences of a publisher be more informative to potential authors than the experiences of an author? Are you just assuming that you and your own situation are the only market for the podcast?
