Here’s episode 10 of Closet Treats.
Scott Pond, my awesome cover designer, has a new book out. It’s a collection of Id ridden insanity of random thoughts that occurred to him over the many days, weeks, months, and years. I wrote the foreword for it and am damned pleased with the way the book turned out. So if you’re interested in insane ramblings (other than mine, of course), you should check it out.
My newest novel Daemons of Garaaga is available over at Amazon.com, and in audiobook from Audible and Amazon. Get a little slice of ancient history mixed with supernatural creatures and my own spin on succubi and incubi.
For any of you looking to crack into the writing game, you might want to go check out an essay from the author of Wool, Hugh Howey. I’ll leave the link in the show notes.
Basically it’s Mr. Howey’s thoughts on a list of his own making about what it takes to be writer. I didn’t exactly agree with everything he said, or rather the way he said some things, but there are good discussion items in there. I think Scott Sigler is also doing a youtube/podcast series on that as well. I’ll leave that in the notes too.
If you have specific questions on “what it takes to be a writer,” leave ‘em on this post. I’ll do my best to answer questions about my experience. I’ll even do my level best not to make generalizations.
Here are the links I mentioned in the podcast:
- Hugh Howey’s So you want to be a writer?
- Scott Sigler’s So you wanna to be a writer?
