Podcast Updates and My Latest Interviews

I have quite the accumulation of appearances to share with you! So this is a roundup of interviews and news from me.

Writers Showcase

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.

Book Cover Design: Writer’s Edge Live Broadcast

Catch the Writer’s Edge LIVE book cover design panel discussion tonight, Thursday, October 19 at 10 p.m. EST with26813854 Joshua RobertsonBeth HammondLK ScottHeidi Angell-Author, and me! During this discussion, topics will include:

  • How much money should you spend on book cover design?
  • Where can you find resources?
  • What are industry standards for covers in different genres?
  • Lots more!

I’m really looking forward to this particular discussion because covers are so important to me. The cover for Anatomy of a Darkened Heart was a labor of love that was worth every bit of pickiness, and I’m very happy with Locke and Keye‘s cover too. Cover reveal for that coming soon!
