It’s a new cheesy radio drama, and the plucky reporter is on the case!

And today’s SNAFU is Libsyn, which won’t allow me to upload. So here’s the YouTube embed.
[EDIT- Fixed!]

It’s time in the detective novel to go to the favorite watering hole to talk to our understanding bartender.

Happy December! Happy Advent Calendar Season!

Many updates!

I haven’t talked about it much (Bad Mur!) but I’m the new co-host of the spec fic arm of the Carolina Bookbeat show on WCOM in Carrboro, NC, along with Sam Montgomery-Blinn. We talk every first Monday of the month about speculative fiction books. You can listen live on the radio, online, or download our podcast.

Seeing as how I’m in Carrboro for half the first Monday of the month (this includes driving time and lunch time) it pretty much destroys my day. I’m trying to get Ghost Train to New Orleans episodes up on Monday, but every 4th week (like, say, this one) it will have to be Tuesday. Stay tuned.

Same for I Should Be Writing, incidentally. I have a new computer coming, and that should make recording much easier. Tomorrow or Wednesday there should be new awesomeness. At least on my end. On your end things will sound the same.

NaNoWriMo was a failure, again, but I got around 30k words for the month, which is much better than my usual average. I consider it a win.

Speaking of writing, it’s the holidays and it’s time to buy presents for loved ones. And books make great gifts! Signed books, even!

Lastly, it’s Advent season again, and we are celebrating with a new year of our Advent Calendar podcast, inspired by Grant’s Advent Calendar. This year’s theme is Radio World, and my daughter Fiona will be doing an old timey radio drama, every voice. We have permission from the awesome John Anealio to use his “Batman Smells (A Rebuttal)” as our theme song again!

Ghost Train to New Orleans, NaNo, and ISBW update

So many recordings, so little time!

First- Ghost Train to New Orleans episode 8 is here! And did you hear that Amazon and Hachette stopped fussing at one another? Yes, you can get copies of Ghost Train to New Orleans and The Shambling Guide to New York City from Amazon lickety-split now, no “arrives in 2-3 weeks” BS.

Second – NaNoWriMo, yeah, it doesn’t look good, but I’m still writing. Still podcasting daily for Patreon supporters, although Patreon is not allowing me to send patrons emails anymore. Links are posted in the Patreon-only updates.

Third- ISBW with interviews is on hiatus until I can get my computer and recording rig setup working again. I don’t know what’s wrong, which is kind of worse because I don’t know what to fix. Apologies.
