Episode 21: Boyd Craven III

 

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.

You can find Boyd here at his blog, and also here at his Amazon Author page. Come back next week for a fantasy reading!

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.

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!
