PUBLIC DISPLAY OF IMAGINATION PODCAST

 

PDI Banner

In January of 2015 Mark released his first book, End The Beginning. On the heels of the book’s release, the need to promote the book became a heavy focus. It didn’t take long for Mark to realize that one of the most enjoyable and cost effective promotional options was interview opportunities with podcasters.

The desire to create his own podcast grew out of that experience and initially Mark talked primarily with those who were publishing books in his own field of study. The interviews were fun and informative, but really targeted to a limited audience due to the subject matter.

Wanting to expand the appeal to a broader audience, Mark began contacting authors who had published books in additional genres. The primary genres that comprise the new spectrum include: Action-Adventure, Mystery, Suspense, Sci-Fi, Spy Thrillers, and Conspiracy.

Ken was born in Saskatchewan, but has called Vancouver home for most of his life.

In his spare time, Ken tries to paint like Bob Ross and play poker like Doyle Brunson, but results suggest that he might have got it all backwards.
