Get Published Episode 128 – Charlie Brown Talks About Dirty Magick

Happy Groundhog Day to those of you listening to the show on February 2nd. I watched the movie of the same name starring Bill Murray last night just to celebrate. That is a movie that I have always enjoyed. Perhaps one day I will even use the idea of a continuous looping day or moment in a story. You just never know.

As you may know, I had stories appear in two anthologies in 2013. The first anthology was Lucky or Unlucky: 13 Stories of Fate. I interviewed the editor, Nila White when we talked about the anthology back in episode 124.

This episode, I talk with Charlie Brown, the editor of the second anthology I appeared in. That anthology was titled Dirty Magic: Los Angeles. Charlie Brown is a publisher, editor, film producer and has a lot of interesting things to say. It was a great conversation.

I also talk about writer’s workshops in the Tips and Typos section of the show. I attended one this past weekend and got more out of it than I expected.

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