Join hosts J.D. Barker, Christine Daigle, JP Rindfleisch IX, Kevin Tumlinson, and Patrick O’Donnell as they discuss the week’s publishing topics, including a report from Bowker that proves the self-publishing boom is still going strong. Then stick around as Christine chats with debut novelist Vaishnavi Patel about reimaging important cultural tales, TikTok, and hitting the NYT Bestseller list.
Vaishnavi Patel is a law student focusing on constitutional law and civil rights. She likes to write at the intersection of Indian myth, feminism, and anti-colonialism. Her debut novel, Kaikeyi, a feminist retailing of the ancient Indian epic, the Rāmāyana, is available now from Redhook/Hachette.
