TRATWD 120 – PC Haring

At Balticon 51 I sat down with author and podcaster P.C. Haring to talk about Slipspace: Harbinger, the first book in Haring’s new science fiction trilogy. Along the way we discuss a variety of aspects of the business and craft of writing, including the lessons we’ve learned since those first heady years of podcast fiction.

In this week’s episode I sat down with Nathan Lowell, the author of The Golden Age of the Solar Clipper series.

TRATWD 114 – Why the Storyteller Needs a Narrator

In this panel from Balticon 51, I lead a discussion with Melissa Hayden, Erin Kazmark, A. F. Grappin and Veronica Giguere about audio book narrators. Why should you have someone narrate your book? How does the process work? How do you find someone who will do the job well? There’s a lot of great advice in here for self-published, hybrid and aspiring authors.
