Today I had the genuine pleasure of sitting down to chat with post-apocalyptic author Boyd Craven III for just the second interview in the show’s history. And he had lots of great things to say! You’ll hear about how he plans his day as a full-time writer, how his other interests intersect with his work, how crossing and mixing genre has worked for him, and about one time he frustrated his fans, and what to learn from it. Have a listen, and then stick around to hear my reading of the first chapter from his novel, One Man’s Opus.
You’ll also hear a very special shout-out to one of my own favorite podcasts, the Sell More Books Show.
As always, my reading does not come from an official audiobook, and was performed and presented here with the author’s non-exclusive permission.
Three for the charm–today I read from another WWII historical fiction novel, The Hazards of War by Jonathan Paul Isaacs. Jonathan also writes sarcasm and thrillers, and his military science fiction series will be available this fall!
*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.
This week we’re talking short stories and audio–have a listen and feel free to leave your thoughts on both in the comments! And enjoy a reading of J.R. Nichols’ story “Outlook Good,” performed and recorded by the author herself.
