New #Podcast: Case Files: Short Fiction Crime Stories @RachelAmphlett @RandomTTours #CaseFiles #RandomThingsTours

Hello lovelies! Today I have something a bit different for you. A new podcast: Case Files: Short Crime Fiction Stories. I don’t know about you but I’ve been listening to podcasts more and more over the last couple of years and I’m a massive crime fiction fan, so I’m very excited about this. Here’s a little more about the podcast: 

Crime fiction author Rachel Amphlett has created a plot twist for mystery fans – a short story podcast.

If you love audio drama or true crime podcasts, then Case Files: Short Crime Fiction Stories is just for you. With each episode of the series less than an hour, you can grab a crime fiction fix over lunch, while walking the dog, or in the gym. Season one will see a new story released each week from September 26 to October 31 and a second season is in production.

Rachel said: “True crime podcasts are popular, you’ve got scripted audio drama like radio plays, and you’ve got some people who take their audiobooks and serialise them. But as far as I can find, there are no crime fiction or murder mystery publishers regularly sharing new stories by their authors on podcasts. 

“This got me thinking about whether I could reach a new demographic of readers through a different worldwide audience and nurture them into readers of my audiobooks, my ebooks, or my print books. It’s providing a connection between a podcast audience and an audiobook audience.”

Inspired by reading books as a child, her aim is ‘to write gripping stories that you won’t want to put down’.

She said: “The first tales I fell in love with were written by Stephen King, Richard Matheson, Rod Serling and Roald Dahl.

“They wrote short stories where the good guys didn’t always win, where I found myself smiling at what the bad guys sometimes got away with. I’d often feel a shiver of anticipation as the page turned and the author posed the question “What if?” For example, what if a contract killer needed to see a chiropractor on a regular basis? And what if you discovered that your husband was a serial killer? What would you do?”
