Coming Soon- The Narratives Library weekly Broadcast!

Author Mark Smith reads from ‘The Road to Winter’

The Narratives Library will soon  be  broadcasting on the  National Community Radio Network.

I am producing a  special weekly series of half hour programs with two authors interviews and reads and thoughtfully  selected music.

Launch date is Tuesday October 3 at 6.30pm!

Because not everyone will be able to tune into broadcasts the same editions will be here on this site  for your listening pleasure.

And because not everyone wants to be tied to their computer you can also listen on your mobile phone or tablet.

And soon, your choice of podcast delivery!

So stay tuned for more wonderful stories and reads from our hundreds of authors.

COMING SOON -Narratives National AND Narratives Podcasts!

From October we have an exciting new development  for the Narratives Library!

We will be producing a half hour show for distribution nationally through the Community Radio  Network.

But so no-one misses out on the broadcasts, after they have gone to air  they will be posted on this site as Podcasts on their own special page.


Each episode will feature two ( sometimes one or three!) authors  in interview and reading from their own work. With some terrific music breaks in between.

We hope you will enjoy these special productions which enlarge the scope of the library and enable us to bring you more insight into reading, writing and authors.
