Steve Rucinski, executive producer of Small Business Trends Radio posted a very nice review of the podcast edition of my novel hackoff.com: an historic murder mystery set in the Internet bubble and rubble.
“This novel turned podcast takes you through the fun, games and hysteria of the turn of the century Internet bubble and blowup.
“With all the best features of a true mystery novel, sexually charged players and of course technology, this novel set to podcast will pull you in and not let go.
“The sound is great, the narration and character play terrific. Before you know it hours will have passed while you listen to the story…”
[music to an author’s ears]
He also writes:
“Pluses: I love this whole idea of a relevant fictional story set in recent times, revolving around technology in both print and podcasted format (complete with stock charts). The site is great, the graphics are effective and the visitor choice is maximized. You can even bookmark your place if you stop part of the way through the story. I even learned a new term ‘Blooks’ blogs as books or books as blogs, whichever you prefer.
“Minuses: Occasionally the sound is a little echoey but I can find no other fault with this great and creative podcast.
Recommendation: If you like great stories you need to try out the Hackoff.com Podcast.”
The hackoff.com podcast is free and you can subscribe to it by email or RSS or get it from iTunes. You can also read the online edition free. However, if you prefer to pay for books [nb. not a bad thing], you can buy the handsome hardcover from Amazon [great holiday gift] or download to the new Kindle you just got.
