Paul E Cooley, Jake Bible and Starla Huchton and I had a great talk about branding and just general authorly stuff. Do not listen to this if easily offended. No, really. This is just not worksafe. Not min-van safe. Rude, rude, rude! Other than that, it was a great discussion. Download
This ain’t one of those.
There are some pearls cast by this panel of educated swine, but mostly it was an excuse to hang out with J. Daniel Sawyer, Starla Huchton and Brand Gamblin for an uncensored, off-the-cuff talk about eBooks. This is whatcha get! We laughed a LOT… but please don’t listen if easily offended.
In addition to good words by all about some aspect of taming ebooks with a whip and a chair, Dan Sawyer talked about smashwords and openoffice on his blog, and pointed to a Linux Journal article on Calibre open-source ebook management and mastering software.
I know it’s been all sci-fi this last year or so, and the site will stay slanted heavily in that direction, but I love me some fantasticky goodness too. Stay tuned! MUCH more SciFi AND Fantasy coming soon via podcasts & ebooks.
Thanks to the too-talented Starla Huchton for crafting me this image!
Now, all you listeners, this is a bit of a re-post. Part gushing again for the guest-voices in this episode, and part pimpery of an episode I’m still pretty proud of.
I’m talking of the special ENEMY LINES holiday episode I put together in December. Check it out here.
If you’re new to the party, or haven’t already heard it, I HIGHLY recommend you check it out. There are no spoilers for ENEMY LINES, but sort of a prequel to the world, with many characters not in the novel.
A number of the segments in ‘Transmissions’ were recorded as teaser trailer/promo material, for a campaign that never really got off the ground. I knew the holidays would be rough, and so I set to record a couple extra segments including the continuing plot thread of the episode, which was masterfully voiced by Jack Kincaid, of the podcast Edict Zero: FIS.
The storyline of an embedded Wright on Earth reporting back to the ruling council about his experience and investigations into Typhon Systemwide, is the perfect spine to give all the contributions new life, and give the listeners new hints about the world of ENEMY LINES that will pay off later in the book… and in future books (key evil laughter here).
So thank you again, podcasters, each and every one of you. I’ll round out this post with a list of all the contributors to this ‘very special episode’.
