As you know, I have several projects on the go, right now. Happily, Mik Murdoch proof work of the galley is finished and sent to Lorina Stephens at 5 Rivers Publishing. That leaves me a little time for the other projects.
The most pressing is the YA Zombie podcast novel I’m working on as part of “The Action Pack Podcast.” I am writing and recording a new episode every month. JR Murdock and Scott Roche are also providing stories. Check out actionpackpodcast.com for more information.
I’m also working on the Mad Scientist Handbook which is officially titled, “A Method to the Madness, A Guide to the Super Evil” with Jeffrey Hite. Jeff and I talk about the handbook in today’s Tips and Typos section.
I’m also pleased to announce the identity of today’s guest author. Rebecca Rowe writes novels, short stories and poetry. She also has a master’s in Mass Communications/Journalism from the University of Denver and a Master’s in International Relations from the University of Southern California. I had a lot of fun talking with her about writing and getting published. I think you will enjoy the discussion.
That’s the lineup for today. I hope you enjoy the show.
