September 22nd, 2014

Episode 99 of 144 episodes

I talk about what it means to be a "wanna-be," and then delve into hooks, using Kameron Hurley's The Mirror Empire for example. Fantastic book. Go get it. Then I interview Seanan McGuire, from way back. Relevant links: The Mirror Empire,Seanan's Blog What I'm writing now*: We Need the Eggs: detectives, wetware, and roller derby. Its status is proposal-under-edit-after-agent-comments. PUEAAC, if you will. What I'm reading now: The Mirror Empire *Like, right this second, today. I have many irons in the fire, but this isn't the place to list them. So if I list something else later, don't think I write books within days.
