 Episode 004: Fictional Money OR The Whore Part II | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

When is it okay to take whatever money […]

 Episode 003: Technology and the Author Whore | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 12:41

This week I talk about the necessary entrepreneurial spirit of the contemporary author. I know; “boooooooooo” you say. Me too.

 Episode 001: Rent-to-Own Your Landscape | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7:18

Fresh from episode zero comes episode one. See, I’m good at math. Here I talk a bit about the importance of a writer to claim ownership of his/her location. Too many writers, especially newer writers, still equate capital-P Publishing with the East coast (in the US, anyway). The problem with limiting scope to the coast […]
