In a nutshell, The Author Hour is the most targeted radio show around for readers, writers, and booksellers of speculative fiction. We have limited space for advertising, but once you become a sponsor, you'll be able to lock yourself in for further episodes. Matthew Peterson interviewed over 60 world-renown authors the first season (15 episodes, with two re-broadcasts). If a season has already begun, we can still put your ads onto the archived episodes if you'd like, since thousands of people download the archives and will for many years to come. We've got banner ads, 30-second radio commercials, mentions of your company on the show, possible guests from your company on the show (upon approval), etc. Most of our author guests (some with over a million visitors a month) link to this site and help spread the word of their interview on The Author Hour.
