Even if I don’t say it, I’m here

Let me tell you a little about the podcast listener, reader, and audiobook listener I used to be. I didn’t read, I devoured. I would stay up until 11:30 pm and then went “well…I can just get the next book and like read the first chapter” and then it was 3 am and “well, I’m not going to sleep now so I might as well get the next one”…and then go to work and sneak off on every break I…

Writing Prompt: Unusual Were-Animals

I love werewolves and the other very common variations. But I also think there is a lot of other under explored were-animals. My Smokejumpers series explores a few of these, peregrine falcons (my favorite), jaguars (pretty common), mountain lions (also on the not unusual list), stags and much more. What is the most unusual shifter you’ve read? Written? What would you like to read? I’ve been listening to the Varmints podcast and I’ve been thinking about which of these would…

One Year of Podcasting

It’s been a whole year! I’ve now got one year of podcasting complete. There are 52 episodes of 600 Second Saga! 53, because there was a bonus episode in there. Have a listen! It’s been a great year.

I’m going to fail at NaNoWriMo

I’ve never failed at it quite like this, but wow am I going to fail. Frankly? I’m not even trying anymore. Which super isn’t like me.  I know what the problem is. I’m recording a novel. This…might be something I do very little of going forward. A big part of it is just how I operate, how my brain works. The project isn’t due for months, literally months. But I cannot handle having it hanging over my head so I’m…

My Approach to NaNoWriMo

I’m going to talk a bit about my approach to Nanowrimo this year… It may be TMI? Maybe? I’m trying to share. I was talking with someone recently about how much I love Mur Lafferty’s I Should Be Writing podcast. She’s so open and honest. (Or appears she is at least.) I like the ones where she just tells you how she’s feeling and what’s happening even more than the interviews. Like oh, she can do it, not every day…

Book and iPad Pro

Lots of good things! A book (a novella really) comes out on Friday and I got my iPad Pro. iPad Pro I love it. Oh it is so nice. I have a few small things to work out still. But I can do all the updates for what happens after an episode goes live on the iPad Pro. This means I don’t have to be at home every single Friday night. I have to be at a connection to do…

Finding a narrator on ACX

I’ve been…putting off my next real authorly project which is to do the recording on a book I’ve had sitting on the shelf for a year and a half or so. Instead I’ve picked up a couple of jobs on ACX, and I’ve read a ton of descriptions. So I thought I would put it off some more and give some tips on finding a narrator on ACX. I’m not really an expert, I’ve only been doing it for about…
