90 episodes and still going. When I started planning Get Published almost four years ago, I never thought it would last this long. But it has and I am very proud of the show and all the wonderful people I have the chance to talk to as part of it.
I have to admit, the past while I’ve been wondering if it is time to end Get Published. I’ve been feeling a little worn down at times and it just feels like one project too many. Still, a lot has happened to me since I started and Get Published is responsible for at least some of my writing success. Because of the show, I have talked with people who have shared their wisdom with me and with you. It has pointed me in directions I never thought I would have traveled. It has also opened the doors to writing relationships that are going strong and getting stronger.
When I think of that, it gives me hope that some of you may have realized some successes or learned some important information because of the show. If that has happened, please drop me a line and let me know. I would love to dedicate the 100th episode to you and your own achievements whether you have been a guest or are a listener.
Speaking of achievments, I am proud to have two of my friends on the show today. The writing and podcasting team of Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine graciously agreed to give me some of their time to talk about their writing.
Tee and Pip are wonderful people and writers and I can say I’ve been cheering them on since the early days when they were first podcasting and getting their individual works published by a smaller press. A lot has happened since those days; they are being published by big-six publishers now both individually and as a writing duo. Their steampunk work is being raved about and…they are a married couple as well as a collaboration team.
It was a true delight speaking to them both again. I know you will enjoy the interview.
I also spend some time in the tips and typos section talking about my first experience at a convention as a published author.
That’s today’s episode. I hope you enjoy it.
