I interrupt your regularly scheduled RWA interviews for a podcast interview with Sassy Outwater, Pratik Patel, Laurel Montgomery and Sassy's guide dog, Kodak. Kodak has many crucial things to say.
We talk a bit about why blind accessibility for books is important, how authors can advocate for their books and their blind readers – and fear not, the bulk of the presentation and the handouts we gave will be available online soon, too.
ETA: There is a transcript of this podcast available, should you wish to read it instead of listen. Be warned: it's long! We talk a lot.
The following books were mentioned in our conversation, should you be curious:
The music this week was provided by Sassy Outwater, and the track is called “Fiddler On the Loose,” and that's Sassy performing. No word if Kodak also performs.

Next up: more interviews from RWA! Pitch appointment horror stories and hilarity! An aspiring author interviews me while I try to interview her! And mayhem, possibly. That'll be up soon. Enjoy!
