ISBW #320 – Just a little bit of depression // Adam Christopher Interview

Depression sucks. Many people talk about it.

But paying it forward is nice, as PJ Schnyder is doing at RT Booklover’s Convention.

The Hugo slate was announced. There are many things to be happy and annoyed about. But the core issue is, read the works, vote as you see fit.

PrintAnd we talk to Adam Christopher, author of the Burning Dark* and long-time listener of the show!

You know, at some point you’d think I would get jealous of people who started writing seriously after starting to listen to me, and then their career took off like gangbusters and outpaced me something terrible, but I still am just absolutely giddy to hear success stories from listeners.

And don’t forget, the Storium Kickstarter is still going strong, and you can always support the podcast via Patreon!
