I met David B. Coe at a local convention last year when we both sat a writing panel for beginners. He sat at one end of the panel table and I sat the other. Pretty appropriate when you compare our writing journeys thus far.
We were chatting after the panel and I asked if he would be interested in coming on Get Published. He gave me a hearty yes and we exchanged contact information. I am pleased to say that you will hear our discussion today.
I knew even before we connected that it would be a great conversation. David is a great writer who has already had a long and successful career. I was pretty confident that we would exceed my normal interview length and I wasn’t wrong. Because I don’t want to break the interview into two episodes and because I don’t want to go too far past the one hour mark, I will not have a tips and typos section in this episode.
One last thing; the Parsec awards nominations are now open for 2011. If you have listened to this show and enjoyed it, I would appreciate a nomination. The category that best suits Get Published is “Best Podcast about Speculative Fiction Content Creation”.
I would also love a nomination for GalaxyBillies in Best Speculative Fiction Audio Drama (Long Form).
Thank you for your consideration and enjoy the show.
