Get Published Episode 127 – YA Author Arthur Slade

I expected 2014 to be busy and full of new experiences and so far, I haven’t been disappointed. I’m going full-bore on my Mik Murdoch: The Power Within edits, getting ready for the work on Jack Kane and the Statue of Liberty AND getting ramped up for the new anthology Jeff Hite and I are putting out. I also just finished my first workshop for one of the local school’s too. And January is nowhere near over.

That’s just the writing side of my life. I’ve got lots going on at work, with my family and with my scouts too, so spare time doesn’t seem to exist right now. At least, I don’t have to worry about getting into trouble. Who has the time?

I also want to thank Jeff Hite for his help. He has graciously agreed to assist me with the production of Get Published. So, if you notice any improvements, they are probably his fault.

On today’s show I talk to Arthur Slade who is an internationally renowed writer of Young Adult books. I met Arthur at one of our local conventions and he kindly agreed to come on the show. I also wanted to talk about my first experience with a school visit: what worked and what needed improvement.

That’s today’s show, I hope you enjoy it.
