Scott Sigler, Superstar
Not Just Ahead Of The Curve - He Twisted It
Scott Sigler is widely acknowledged to be the first New York Times best-selling novelist to have used the new medium of podcasting to build a large online following by giving away his self-recorded audiobooks as free, serialized podcasts. His loyal fans, who named themselves “Junkies,” have downloaded over seven million individual episodes of his stories and interact daily with Scott and each other in the social media space.
Scott has his feet firmly planted in both “traditional” publishing as well as new media. Crown Publishing (a division of Random House) publish his hardcover thrillers INFECTED and CONTAGIOUS (his next hardcover is ANCESTOR).
But Scott is also the founder of Dark Overlord Media, a publisher specializing in high-end, limited edition hardcovers for authors who have successfully embraced social media to build their readership. Scott’s novel THE ROOKIE is Dark Overlord’s flagship product.
This engrossing interview with Scott concludes our series of discussions with authors who have used new media to build their person brands.
