Today we have an interview with YA Urban Fantasy author Wendy Terrien, followed by a reading from the first chapter of her novel, The Rampart Guards. Check out this cover art!
You can find Wendy online here at her website, and also here at her Amazon author page. As always, this reading does not come from an official audiobook, and is presented here with the author’s permission. Thanks, enjoy the show, and see you next week!
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.
This week I read from YA Romantic Comedy and Paranormal Romance author Stella Wilkinson, who is a presence on KBoards and Wattpad, and a delightful human being who has promised me either French wine or Italian beer should I ever be in England. Thanks, Stella!
This reading was done with Stella’s permission and does not come from an official audiobook.
Lastly, here’s today’s poem. Thanks for listening!
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
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!
