Exciting news! I’ll be on the podcast and LIVE show Vox Vomitus on Wednesday, August 12 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time! This is a show where we’ll talk about mistakes. Instead of all the things that went right while writing, we’ll dig into the things that went wrong. Ooo boy, do I have things that went wrong.
It’s funny because my first published novel was a breeze to write compared to my others. It was a great “gateway” book to prove that I absolutely love writing—so that I could handle the difficulties I would run into in the future!
So if you want to hear what’s gone wrong for me, mistakes, things I don’t like in works I read, etc., don’t miss this one! You can ask questions in the chat too.
I have quite the accumulation of appearances to share with you! So this is a roundup of interviews and news from me.
First of all, Creative Edge Writers Showcase has now been renamed simply Writers Showcase. It’s still part of the Authors on the Air Radio Network, but now we’re Facebook livestreaming author interviews! You can watch live and ask questions, or you can wait for the replay, which you can watch on Facebook or YouTube, or you can listen via SoundCloud and almost anywhere podcasts are available.
So far this September, I’ve interviewed Dark Data: Control, Alt, Delete author Douglas J. Wood and Mirador author James Jennings. Both have written books that required an immense amount of research but on totally different topics. You can watch them below.
A Scribe’s Journey
Richard Paolinelli has a podcast called A Scribe’s Journey, where he interviews an author for about half the podcast and then shares his own news in the second half. This interview was not my first time chatting with Richard! He was a guest on The Writer’s Edge in 2018, then later that year on Writers Showcase. And now I’m on his podcast in 2019! We always have great chats and can talk about anything writing-related.
Siren Radio / Southside Broadcasting
I was on the fast-paced Midweek Drive show hosted by Alex Anthony-Lewczuk, and we talked Victorian feminism, the hypocrisy of Victorian etiquette and true horrors of the time, whether original Victorian novels helped to inspire my books, and lots more.
Author Assist with Karina Kantas
I knew author Karina Kantas back when she published her first book, before she had her Author Assist business and before she had a podcast, so it was a real treat to catch up with her! My interview starts at 36:58 of this episode, and during the interview, I read a section from Brotherhood of Secrets that I’ve never read aloud before.
The Indie View
My latest written interview is with The Indie View, and if you don’t know a whole lot about me, this interview is a great place to start. You’ll learn about my books, my writing process, and my publishing journey.
I’ve been a busy bee with interviews and blog appearances lately! Here’s some of what I’ve been up to.
Did you know that I draw inspiration from antiques auctions? I wrote a guest post for Jera’s Jamboree called “Antiques Auctions for the Creative Mind” in which I shared the kinds of things I find at auctions (very different than you might expect!), how auctions help me with my Dark Victoriana Collection research, and why it’s actually great that I find so many things that aren’t from the Victorian era. You’ll also see some pictures I took of things I find inspiring too.
One of my author friends, Jason LaVelle, recently started a podcast called The Raven, which includes a reading of a short story followed by an interview with the author. I love the concept, and I was honored to be one of his first guests! Here’s my interview on The Raven, during which Jason reads “The Subtlety of Terror” and we talk about the difference between terror and horror as well as how to “work” that difference in storytelling, plus lots more.
On Wednesday, September 27 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time, listen to my interview on CJRU 1280 AM’s All My Books, a wonderful bookclub show hosted by Jacky Tuinstra Harrison. We’ll be talking all about Locke and Keye, including inspirations, how etiquette and respect for authority of the Victorian era play into the book, the mantra the locksmiths repeat, and so much more, plus a live reading!
