About the Author
Tee Morris: Tee entered 2005 with an idea: podcasting a novel in order to promote its sequel. His podcast of MOREVI: The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana went on to become the first book podcast in its entirety and was nominated for a 2006 Parsec for Best Podcast Fiction. Podcasting MOREVI also led to writing with Evo Terra the #1 book in podcasting, Podcasting For Dummies . Tee’s other podcasts include the Parsec–nominated Survival Guide to Writing Fantasy, Podcasting For Dummies, Give Us a Minute, Speaking of Beer’s MicroBrewed with Phil Rossi, and “Behind the Mic” for Blogger and Podcaster Magazine . He continues to podcast fiction as well with “Dear John” (from BenBella Books’s Farscape Forever: Sex, Drugs, and Killer Muppets ) for The ScapeCast; and “Asleep at the Wheel” for the podcast anthology VOICES: New Media Fiction , edited by Mur Lafferty. Following 2007’s Billibub Baddings and The Case of The Singing Sword podcast, Tee will podcast Legacy of MOREVI in preparation for the 2009 print release of Exodus from Morevi .

His credits in the field include launching the premier destination for serialized audiobooks, Podiobooks.com. A pioneer in the world of podcasting, he’s the co–author of Podcasting For Dummies and Expert Podcasting Practices For Dummies (both published by Wiley). His personal and professional blog, FunAnymore.com, serves as Evo’s soapbox and testing ground, where he pontificates and proselytizes the bleeding edge of Web 2.0 applications that are reshaping how we define “the conversation.” Ryan Williams: Ryan Williams is a multimedia designer, author, and bassist based in Indianapolis, Indiana. He’s shared the stage and studio with everybody and everything from Grammy Award–winning hip–hop artists to a full band of bagpipes and drums.

He has also written several articles and tutorials on music and music technology for several publications and Web sites. He is the technical editor for Second Life For Dummies and Composing Digital Music For Dummies. He is a frequent panelist on digital music and home studios at music conferences around the nation.
