Mik Murdoch, Boy superhero is almost ready for the Advanced Reader Copies to go out. I’m busy proofing the galley right now. In fact, I stopped working on it to get this episode ready for you. Exciting times!
I also wanted to put the word out to all of you mad scientists out there. Jeffrey Hite and I are co-editing an anthology of advice for the up-and-coming supervillain. Submissions are open until May 31. We have some good submissions so far, but we need more. If you are interested, check out http://madscientistanthology.wordpress.com/.
Finally, before we get into the show I wanted to mention that it is once again Parsec awards season. I would dearly love to have Get Published nominated again. If you have enjoyed Get Published and think it should be in the running, please go to www.parsecawards.com and nominate the show. I believe the category it best fits in is: Best Podcast about Speculative Fiction Content Creation. Nominations should now be open.
In today’s show, I’m happy to have JR Murdock back with another of his Unorthodox Writing Tips. This time he is talking about time.
I also have a fantastic guest: Paul E. Cooley, also known as the fiendmaster to his friends and fans. Paul and I talk about a lot of things but most especially, self-publishing and what he has been doing to achieve success.
That’s the lineup for today. I hope you enjoy the show.
