What is the difference between an audio book, a podcast, and an audio drama? I chat with Bibi, who is able to make the differences easy to understand…

English writer BIBI BERKI is one half of a creative association called “Tempest Productions” which she co-founded with actor Mark Lingwood to make original audio dramas and podcasts.

After university, she trained as a news reporter and worked for regional and national newspapers, and as a producer at the BBC. Bibi self-publishes fiction under her own name and as H.A. Ferdinand.

Tempest Productions‘ vision is to tell great stories and produce high-quality content in a variety of genres and formats. All their narrative is original.

The production company is driven by a collaborative approach to creating podcast dramas and documentaries, short films and showreels. A central part of their work is developing original ideas into unique scripts for television, film and audio productions.

In this interview, Bibi demystifies audio-based storytelling and explains what you, as a fantasy author, can do to prepare your fiction for audio.

Myth & Magic Episode 107 Myth and Magic

In the second half of NaNoWriMo we chatted with teen fantasy author Sarah Humpherys about taking the 50k word month-long challenge, and about landing herself an agent & publishing deal at the tender age of sixteen! Sarah also talks about world-building and the craft of authorship. Her new novel, titled Stone Cold, features themes on overcoming loss by making new relationships.
