Episode 19: David Spiller

 

This week I’m featuring another WWII Historical Fiction author, David Spiller, as part of the Dunkirk Week WWII Epic Book Sale!

This reading does not come from an official audiobook, and is presented here with the author’s permission.

You can find Girl at Dunkirk here on Amazon, and you can find David Spiller here on Facebook.

You can also find the Dunkirk Week WWII Epic Book Sale here–check out these 99cent historical fiction titles! Here is a link to their trailer.

Today’s poem:

 

“Trochaic Pentameter”

Someone told me I should be a poet
or a painter so I bought a bucket
and a book of poems and I painted
over every single page of nonsense.

 

And, lastly, here is a link to sign up for my author newsletter and receive your free copy of ‘The Trials of Io,’ a Starship Fairfax prequel story.

Thanks everyone, and see you next week!

Episode 18: Roberta Kagan

*EDITED: I misspoke in the show and said that the Dunkirk Week WWII Epic Book Sale runs 7/21-7/28; in reality, it runs 7/21-7/27.

Today I read from Roberta Kagan’s All My Love, Detrick: A Historical Novel of Love and Survival During the Holocaust. This week and next I’m reading from WWII Historical Fiction in support of the Dunkirk Week WWII Epic Book Sale, which will feature 40 titles for 99cents each! You can find a landing page for the sale at this link.

You can also find Roberta Kagan here at her Amazon Author Page and here at her own website.

This reading does not come from an official audiobook, and was performed and recorded to be presented here with the author’s permission.

A special thank you to Roberta, who was generous and lovely in her communications with me, and to Alexa Kang, friend of the show, who reached out to have the promo featured. Thanks, and good luck!

Now go read a book 🙂

Lastly, here’s today’s poem. Thanks for listening!

 

Make Love

Make love.
Thinkers and doers and shapers,
Drape love on every sooty snow and
Budding branch, every swarm of deer flies in the
Mist, every glowing eye and warm tear that glistens,
Every animal who looks, who listens, who quakes.
Bake love into every bead of sweat, every
Missive, every alphabet. Love until it’s
Done, till you are lost and lame, dismissed;
Until your very breath, undone, denies your kiss.
And if the mystery of love is greater than the
Mystery of death—though I suspect they are
One and the same—make more
Mystery, then.

Episode 13: Elizabeth Ann West

 

Today’s episode is wildly exciting for me, as it features my first-ever author interview! Elizabeth was kind enough to be a guest today for a chat that’s chock full of fascinating information and enjoyable anecdotes. Do have a listen!

You can find Elizabeth Ann West here at her website, and here at her Amazon Author Page. And here’s a link to the wikipedia page for JAFF, which she mentions in the interview.

Lastly, as promised, here is a link to my now permafree sci-fi short story prequel, ‘Totaled.’ I hope you like it!

Thanks for listening, and see you next week. Don’t forget to drop in on iTunes and leave a rating/review–thank you!
