Where have I been? What have I been doing? What am I going to do next? Listen and thy answers shall be revealed. Comments always welcome
Hi everyone. I know it’s been a bit since I’ve updated. I have it in my head that if I don’t do a podcast to add to the site no one is going to READ the post. I’m hoping that is incorrect. That’s always a problem when you build a podcast. You wonder if anyone will see the written entries.
Anyway, I have an update podcast coming. Should be up today or tomorrow. It will let you know what’s been going on, where I’m at and where I’m going. And I think you are going to like where I”m going.
For a taste of the cast: there are great podcasts to be put up, there’s work happening with Guardians, and there is a very cool new project I’m working on that will help you if you get like me when I’m stuck on a particular writing issue.
Thanks for all your patience. Don’t be afraid to let me know if you read AND listen to the podcast. It will help me know if updating you occasionally in written form does any good.
Oh…and since February is the month of love….I love and appreciate all of you who come here! Thank you for the support, the kicks in the butt, and the interests we share!
At last right? Thinking I disappeared as usual. Ah ha! You were wrong!
As with many of the other things in my possession (recordings to go up on talechasing) here is a long over due interview that some of you were there for and probably don’t remember much of. For those who didn’t get to go….enjoy the silliness and the interesting answers that come from Scott Sigler.
A few things.
1) First, I’m sorry I’m behind on getting up a new episode. Things have been crazy around here with family, writing, voice acting, and getting Specficdb.com going. I appreicate your patience. Tomorrow I’ll be putting up a new one. I think you’ll like it.
2)I want to remind you all that I created Specficdb.com to promote speculative fiction authors and writers. This includes anyone who is in print, has a story in e-form (on the web in any form like on a blog or a podcast). Just go over to www.specficdb.com and create an account then hit submit. It’s free.
I’m also looking for people who would like to help. I need people to help spread the word, to contact specific genre authors, and other fun stuff. This will be getting big and great things are around the cornor so I encourage you to participate in any way that you can.
3) I’d like to ask you to vote for my podcast for the Podcast awards! Just go over to www.podcastawards.com Feel free to boost my ego and let me know in the comments which category you voted me for. I love knowing that kind of thing.
4) I may be trying to hit Philcon on Saturday. If you are going let me know. I’d love to say hello.
Many great things are coming….so keep your eyes on the site and your ears tuned to the pod!
I promised I’d get Pip on the show and I did it! Only a week til her book comes out but I did it!! So here is my interview with the lovely goddess herself! There are plenty of links to write down so keep your ears open.
As promised I am including a link to Seth Harwood’s “Young Janius” which you can get right here!! I hear it’s awesome – me and my writing schedule don’t allow for such fun things like reading!
Also if you haven’t heard I’ve created a place for people who LOVE speculative fiction (this is the wiki link definition) to find their favorite authors and works they might not know about as well as new authors called The Speculative Fiction Database or Specficdb.com for short! So if you are craving fiction go take a look. We’re adding new people everyday. You don’t even have to be IN PRINT….podcasts and epub count! It’s only 1$ to list yourself if you are an author (with a spot in the listing for your stories and books and other goodies to you) – so just go do it already!

I beg Chris Lester begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting, from Metamor City to get online to talk to me about how to write Dark Fantasy because while I am into urban fantasy and it’s sub-genre’s I don’t know much about HOW to write dark fantasy. So when Pip’s listener’s voted for Dark Fantasy for my erotic story, Caged, I panicked. I knew he’d done a panel at Balticon 2010 that I thought was on this topic and I didn’t go so this is the result of that panic. It’s in “Raw” style. Enjoy!
Until I typed all this out – ok I cheated and copied and pasted it but still….i had NO idea how busy I’m going to be this weekend…..LOL So…take a look
This is going to be a list of things I’m going to tape and things I’m going to be at. If you are at the Con this is where I’ll be and what I’ll be taping. Come see me in my panels or find me and say hello!
Hi everyone! My first contest wasn’t so bad. 8 people entered – 1 person won.
Caro – please send me your mailing address to email@example.com so I can send this off to you. I hope to get it out to you this week but no later then next as I am going to Albacon this coming weekend.
As a side note….I’m super busy with a piece of fiction I need to write for Albacon that I’ll be reading!! The story will also go up (in audio form) here and over at Guardiansnovel.com as it’s a story for the series!!! Please remember the site needs some fixin up. I’m also trying to get ready for the convention and I’m working on a special project to promote authors of #specfic (which encompasses everything from urban fantasy to paranormal romance to steampunk and on and on). Talechasing will be a part of this site so I’m not just starting some new random project. *grins* I want to help promote all of you writers/authors and this will definitely help.
Anyway the reason I mention this is because it means I don’t have an episode to go up. Oh I have episodes that can go up but none put together. So…when I get the story written, I’m packed, and I’ve done a few other things for the #specfic secret project – I will set up a TaleChasing podcast to go up on Friday Oct 8. Thanks for the patience.
I completed the story, Caged, for Erotica Ala Carte. It’s an adult short story about a shape-shifting cat who gets hired to sneak in to a company for secrets but finds out the job wasn’t exactly what she signed up for!
I’d love to know what you think of it. Leave comments there or here and let me know.
In this episode I catch you up on what’s been happening. What all I recorded and will be playing on TaleChasing at Authors After Dark and what’s coming up for me at Albacon you will likely be able to catch on the show.
P.S. I will be posting all the places you can come and see me at Albacon coming up in another blog post.
Now the goodies!
There is a CONTEST:
To win an urban fantasy book and a piece of swag from the AADCon 2010 all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner in next week’s podcast. You MUST leave a way to get in touch with you, twitter, facebook, email…SOMETHING or you loose if your name is chosen.
