Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/30/2015 -- Voice America announces the addition of Publishing Today, a new voice and resource for communicators with a message to share. The show will make its debut May 2, 2015 at 10 AM PST. The weekly one-hour Saturday morning broadcast is designed to educate and empower aspiring authors, thought leaders, business owners and others with a story to tell. The show is produced and hosted by Athena Dean Holtz, author, blogger, speaker, publisher and pastor's wife. The format is designed to creatively mix author and industry expert interviews, along with answers to all manner of publishing related questions in the "Ask Athena" segment of each show.

With a tagline of "Clear Direction for a Changing Industry," Publishing Today Radio will interview authors, editors, writing coaches, agents, branding experts, and other industry peers to bring together many voices in an effort to educate and advise on the complicated process of branding and publishing with excellence.

Camille Nash, Executive Producer for the VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network, said "This is the right platform for Athena Dean Holtz to help people abroad discover the voice of their story and dispel the quandary of publishing."

The inaugural show will feature award-winning, NYT bestselling author, Karen Kingsbury, Christy Award winning novelist, James L. Rubart and former President of the 2,700 member American Christian Fiction Writers' Association and award winning novelist, Cynthia Ruchti. During their time together they will discuss the power of story.

Do you have a story to tell? It may be your personal story of a transformed life, the history of your business, or a resource that spotlights the story of your ministry. Whether your book idea is fiction, non-fiction, curriculum, or a children's book, the power of a story can change hearts and communicate facts like nothing else can.
