Brave New Bookshelf is the brainchild of Steph Pajonas and Danica Favorite, two authors united by a shared vision to explore the nexus of Artificial Intelligence and publishing. This podcast is an invitation to journey through the evolving landscape of literature, where AI tools and technologies are not just ancillary but integral to the creative process.

Our mission is to demystify AI for the writing community, showcasing its potential to enhance storytelling, streamline the editing process, and open new avenues for expressing creativity. Through engaging discussions, expert interviews, and sharing our own experiences, we aim to foster a community that is informed, inspired, and innovative.

Steph Pajonas brings to the table her experience as a self-published author and co-founder of the Future Fiction Academy, while Danica Favorite offers insights from her role as the Community Manager at PublishDrive and her journey as a published author. Together, we embark on this adventure to understand AI’s implications for authors, publishers, and readers alike.

Brave New Bookshelf is more than a podcast; it’s a platform for dialogue, discovery, and growth. Join us as we delve into the heart of how AI is transforming the world of writing and publishing, one episode at a time.
