Indies Unlimited Staff to be Featured on Radio Show Tonight

deadly reads radio logoTonight (Thursday, January 21, 2016) at 8 pm Pacific time, some of the IU staff are booked (get it? That’s a literary pun) to be on Deadly Reads Radio.

Scheduled to be live on the show are: K. S. “Kat” Brooks, our admin; staff contributors Laurie Boris, Lynne Cantwell, Shawn Inmon, and Gordon Long; with a possible late call-in from Martin Crosbie. Some of the other minions might even drop by.

If you have questions for the staff or would just like to tell them how awesome they are, feel free to call in at (646) 668-2716. Can’t make it tonight? Don’t worry, it’s a podcast, so there will be a link to the entire show available so you can listen at a later time.

We hope to hear from you!
