Authors: Being On The Show
We are a curated podcast. We have to read and like a book before we’ll review it or have the author on the show. There are exceptions to this rule that we occasionally make as part of our curation. If you’d like to be considered for a guest spot or interview, drop us an email at jeffandwill@biggayfictionpodcast.com  (We’ve discovered some great books/authors because an author sends a request so don’t hesitate to send the email).
