The Newbie Writers’ Podcast
Special guest: Dionne Lister
I almost feel like I’m spamming everyone; my cover was ready so I did the cover reveal, and I was going to wait to upload to Amazon, but I couldn’t! So now, the next book in The Circle of Talia series is out there. You can find it on Amazon or Smashwords and soon iTunes, Kobo and Barnes & Noble. The sequel to Shadows of the Realm continues the story of realmists, Bronwyn and Blayke and their creaturas, Sinjenasta and Fang. It’s fast-paced, scary and has awesome dragons (although those who have read Shadows of the Realm would know that).
I hope a lot of readers are waitingRead More

My website is http://softduit.com. I am working to build out my YouTube channel this year at http://youtube.com/brettbum
I am a newbie writer in progress myself. My books is called Peter3d Out at http://peter3dout.com . It’s a nice little science fiction novel based prosthetic sexual devices used as drugs wrapped in a formulaic murder mystery, or at least it would be formulaic if I could follow a formula.
A Gripping Cyber Punk ‘whodunnit’!
Filled with intrigue and erotic role reversals, Peter3d Out is a comical peep show into the future of technology, crime fighting, politics and sex.
In the spirit of Forest Gump visiting the set of Boogie Nights portrayed by the descendants of the cast of PulpRead More

Special Guest: Charles McFall
An email from one of Charles’ listeners:
Up until recently I have never considered writing as a hobby, as my strength has always been speaking. Even in school I had a difficult time putting my spastic, cluttered thoughts on paper in a properly organized manner. That was until i was inspired by my friend who has started a wonderful digital magazine all about my lovely city and the people in it. It is a huge collaborative of artists, poets, and of course writers. He gave me a topic I was able to connect with, and I surprised myself with how much more easily writing came to me with just a little encouragement. Charles and Success Freaks has been a huge part of my personal success with this and other parts ofRead More
