NOTE: The Drunken Odyssey is not considering pitches for future guests in order to deal with the pipeline of writers already under consideration.
When The Drunken Odyssey is opening to guest pitches, please keep the following in mind:
- The host invites guests onto the show based on the strength of the book the author has written. If a publicist sends a long list of subjects a guest can cover, then that publicist hasn’t read this or demonstrate an understanding of The Drunken Odyssey’s content. A brief discussion of the book is all that’s needed or wanted.
- The Drunken Odyssey mostly covers literature (fiction, poetry, memoir), but is also interested in history, philosophy, comedy, film, and television. On rare occasions, we cover horror and science fiction. We also like especially weird writing. If you are promoting a straightforward romance or self-help book, TDO is not for you.
- Because the host must read the books of potential guests, the reading pipeline is considerable. If you are hoping to have an interview coincide with a book’s release, getting in touch very early is key.
