Creating your own Podcast on iTunes
By: Alan Schneider  Published: 4/4/2011  Category: General

There seems to be a lot of interest in authors creating Podcast's for their blogs and author pages. At first glance, you might think it's a daunting task requiring expensive software and fees. Well, after some research we discovered that the process is easier than you might think. Below is our step by step ‘tutorial’ on how to create and list your Podcast on iTunes.

Step 1: Write out your dialog and record your first episode. Make sure it's in one of these formats that iTunes supports: .m4a, .mp3, .mov, .mp4, .m4v, and .pdf.

Step 2: Your Podcast material must be placed on a publicly accessible URL. You will then need to create an RSS feed file and place the URL of your RSS feed onto your server.

Step 3: Open up iTunes and the iTunes Store, and click on Podcasts. In the middle of the screen, amongst the numerous podcasts, there will be a button called "Submit a Podcast." This will take you to a screen where it will request the URL for the podcast RSS feed that you would like to consider adding into the iTunes Store.

Step 4: After entering your RSS feed URL, you will see a summary page. Depending on whether you have added tags already, a second screen might come up, asking you for more information--such as language, category, and whether the podcast requires explicit tags.

Your going to have to wait a while after that last step. The iTunes staff will have to approve your Podcast before it is accessible via search or browse. Give it a half a day and then search for your Podcast. You should see it no later than 24 hours after submission. After which you can create ‘episodes’ on a regular basis and continue building your following.

Notes:

checkmark Before you submit it, you should test that your RSS feed works. You can do that by either dragging the URL into the Podcast playlist or going to the Advanced menu in your Toolbar, clicking on Subscribe to Podcast, and typing it in.

checkmarkIf you are asked to add summary information after you submit your URL (because your RSS feed didn't have tags), you can always go back and change them by including tags on your feed. The information on the RSS feed is what is going to be the definitive source of information for your podcast.

Sara Bear - By Paul Sharp Fiction - Westerns
View Alan Schneider's bio page

The story of Sara Bear takes you on an in depth and intriguing journey full of action, mystery, murder, and adventure. It is the story of a young woman raised by Indians in the American wilderness of the 1840's. She escapes her violent husband and tries making her way east.

Shortly after her journey begins, she comes across the remains of a hostile attack against a family's wagon. As the father lay dying, he asks Sara to help his four children make it to safety. Sara reluctantly agrees and the children soon learn that without her help, they would be lost for sure.

After another attack on their party, Sara begins to think there is something suspicious about the children's situation. Finally the travelers arrive at an outpost, but Sara learns that they are unable to help. They do, however, offer to escort her to the railhead where she can get passage to Philadelphia for her and her party. Once there, Sara is hoping to reunite the children with the relatives of the slain parents, thus fulfilling her promise.

Sara soon finds that her life becomes intertwined with her newly adopted family as she uncovers a string of events involving the children's parents, their relatives in Philadelphia, and a pair of foreign assassins. Sara and the children return to the western wilderness new members from Philadelphia where they establish a ranch and begin work on making a new life for themselves. However, the trouble does not end there as hired Comanchero's are still on the lookout for the children and other family members.

Extraordinary - By Paul Sharp Fiction - Crime, Mystery
View Alan Schneider's bio page

When Jubal Slade moved his family to Texas and tried to enroll his children in the local school system, they discovered something amazing. The boys had wanted to play sports in High School, but the demands and restrictions of local coaches allowed for only one option for his children, Oatman High School.

His daughter, a gifted and extraordinary young girl, discovered that Oatman's lowly status among the community's schools went way beyond the sports programs. Could the discovery of cameras and recorders at the children's new school be tied to their recent move or their mother's research work?

The family, along with their FBI appointed protector Wiley, uncover corruption and cover-up while helping rebuild Oatman's disheveled football program into a winner!
