Books on the Nightstand published our final episode in July 2016. This is a place for listeners to find old episodes. 

I'm sorry that we don't have show notes for all of the episodes, and that the episodes do not have consistent filenames. Still, we hope you find that the content is valuable enough to overlook those annoyances.

Thank you to all who have listened to BOTNS over the years and for those who are just discovering the podcast.

Ann and Michael answer questions "live" from Booktopia Oxford

Apologies to all of you for the sound quality of some of this episode. It was recorded and edited on the go, without all of our usual equipment and programs.

During the podcast (which we recorded at the University of Mississippi Museum's Theora Hamblett room) we answered many questions including:

"Which publishers do Ann and I really sell?"

"What's an imprint?"

"How did we get started in the book industry?"

"Should authors use social media to promote their books?"

"What are some of our favorite short story collections?"

and, "Is publishing on its last legs?"

Some of the books discussed include Fifty Shades of GreySuperman: Earth OneMoominStrange PilgrimsHow to Breathe UnderwaterThings That Fall From the SkyA Good Man is Hard to FindThe Girl in the Flammable SkirtKnockemstiffWild,  and The River Witch.

And finally, one of our attendees stumped us. She was looking for books that are not sad or depressing, but that aren't fluffy or shallow either. So give a call to our voice mail (209.867.7323) and tell us about a charming or funny book that goes deeper.
