*Amazon is still fussy with Hachette, my publisher, so AMZ are saying there’s a 1-3 week delay. I’ve heard anecdotes that this is bullshit, as some readers say things still ship on time. YMMV. Get The Shambling Guide to New York City here, and Ghost Train to New Orleans here.

ISBW #333 – Writing Hooks // Seanan McGuire Interview

I talk about what it means to be a “wanna-be,” and then delve into hooks, using Kameron Hurley’s The Mirror Empire for example. Fantastic book. Go get it. Then I interview Seanan McGuire, from way back.

Relevant links: The Mirror Empire, Seanan’s Blog

What I’m writing now*: We Need the Eggs: detectives, wetware, and roller derby. Its status is proposal-under-edit-after-agent-comments. PUEAAC, if you will.

What I’m reading now: The Mirror Empire

 

*Like, right this second, today. I have many irons in the fire, but this isn’t the place to list them. So if I list something else later, don’t think I write books within days.

ISBW #330 – Amazon vs Hachette // Kirsty Logan Interview

I have a couple of horses in this Amazon vs Hachette race, and although I will admit I don’t fully understand all the details, I will say that I really dislike absolutes.

On a brighter note, we talk to Kirsty Logan!

My return to Escape Artists

If you don’t listen reguarly to Escape Pod, you may not know that I have recently returned to Escape Artist’s staff as Editor at Large. What that means will become more clear in months ahead, I’m working on some behind the scenes stuff, and will take on some hosting duties on all of the EA shows (Escape Pod, Podcastle, Pseudopod).

I had to leave because when I was in grad school, something had to give, and it broke my heart to leave my editorial position at Escape Pod, so I’m absolutely thrilled to be back with the awesome Escape Artists!

ISBW #328 – Taking Care of Yourself // Gail Carriger interview

This week we welcome Gail Carriger back to the show, and talk about taking care of yourself. Hint- it’s not romantic to treat yourself like crap in order to brag that you’re not sleeping or drinking too much in order to feel like a “real” writer.
