  • Writing In Suburbia #60: The One Where I Interview Myself! And Fail Hard...
    Thu, Feb 15, 2018


    Welcome back, y'all!

    It's time for episode #60! Woo hoo!

    In this episode, I attempt to interview myself. No, seriously. It's all part of a new segment I'll be including in Writing In Suburbia twice a month. I'll be interviewing writers and asking them two questions: Why do you write? and, What was, or still is, the hardest part about being a writer?

    I've already got some great interviews recorded!

    But I thought it would be fun to break y'all in with an interview of myself. Fun? Sure. Funny? Yeah, I crack myself up.

    So, have a listen and enjoy!

    Cheers!

  • Writing In Suburbia #59: Fear And Loathing In 2018!
    Thu, Jan 25, 2018


    Happy New Year, y'all!

    In this episode I switch things up a little: I chose theme music! I have also added show notes! Check 'em out.

    I chat about the ups and downs of income as a pro writer and my fear of what 2018 could be like if there aren't more ups. I also chat about a certain PLAGIARIST in our midst who has stolen Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter and tried to make it his own. Full on prose theft, y'all. The guy is a scumbag. Pure and simple.

    So, have a listen as I lay out some fears and some loathings.

    Cheers!

  • Writing In Suburbia #58: Let's Talk About Stress, Baby!
    Thu, Dec 07, 2017


    The Holiday season is upon us! And with that comes stress.

    Now, I don't tend to get stressed out around Holiday time because I have the soothing balms of Xmas music coupled with making Chex Mix. But, that doesn't mean I don't have other stresses!

    So, in this episode I discuss the stresses I feel as a professional writer and how 2017 hasn't exactly been a great year. Not only do I chat about my stresses, I also chat about how I cope with all the stress! Solutions! Huzzah!

    Have a listen and also have a Happy Holiday and Happy New Year!

    Cheers!

    Fri, Sep 29, 2017

    It's gonna be a blast! Hope to see some of you at Dragon*Con!

  • Writing In Suburbia #52: Go Home, Excuses! You're Drunk!
    Fri, Apr 21, 2017


    This week's (month's?) episode is all about how aspiring (hate that word) writers make excuses not to do the work. Which is total BS. I talk about how you have complete power and control over where, when, and how you write, so shut up with the excuses!

    Wed, Feb 01, 2017


    Finally! Another episode of Writing In Suburbia is up.

  • Writing In Suburbia #44: Checkmate
    Thu, Oct 27, 2016


    Welcome back to another episode of Writing In Suburbia.

    Today is my birthday. I turn 43. This has special meaning to me. It means I lived. I made it. I didn't implode.

    Since the beginning of September there has been a special blog campaign called #HoldOnToTheLight where over 100+ scifi/fantasy writers have been posting about mental health issues, domestic violence issues, substance abuse issues, and so much more. In today's episode I read my contribution that I posted to my website.

    Enjoy.

    About the campaign:
    #HoldOntoTheLight is a blog campaign encompassing blog posts by fantasy and science fiction authors around the world in an effort to raise awareness around treatment for depression, suicide prevention, domestic violence intervention, PTSD initiatives, bullying prevention and other mental health-related issues. We believe fandom should be supportive, welcoming and inclusive, in the long tradition of fandom taking care of its own. We encourage readers and fans to seek the help they or their loved ones need without shame or embarrassment.

    Please consider donating to or volunteering for organizations dedicated to treatment and prevention such as: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Home for the Warriors (PTSD), National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Canadian Mental Health Association, MIND (UK), SANE (UK), BeyondBlue (Australia), To Write Love On Her Arms and the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.

    Tue, Oct 11, 2016


    Another episode of Writing In Suburbia is here!

    And, well, it basically dovetails directly off the subject of the last episode. I don't think what I'll be talking about is going to go in the direction you think. Seriously. I wouldn't have thought I'd be talking about this when I recorded last week's episode. Obviously.

    Well, you'll see.

  • Writing In Suburbia #40: What I Did This Summer
    Wed, Sep 07, 2016


    This week I talk about what I did during the hiatus of this podcast. I explain how even though a writer never stops working, sometimes you can still recharge, relax, and let the world wash away. While still working. You know. Because the work never ends.

    Enjoy!

  • Writing In Suburbia #39: Compare And Contrast!
    Thu, Sep 01, 2016

I compare and contrast what it's like working with my current publishers, especially Severed Press, with my expectations of working with Bell Bridge Books.

    And, this will be quite the surprise, I am too tired to rant this week! This is a rant-free episode!

  • Writing In Suburbia #37: The Game Of Life
    Mon, May 23, 2016


    And I am back!

    Yeah, I know, it's been a couple of weeks. Want to know why? Well, I guess you'll have to listen to the podcast, won't ya?

    Tue, May 10, 2016

    Oh, and if you have a second or two, post a review or comment on iTunes! It helps!

    Enjoy!

    Mon, Apr 18, 2016

This week I talk in depth about NC House Bill 2, called the "Bathroom Bill", and how it is effecting local businesses and why a blanket boycott is a useless exercise and does WAY more harm than good.

    Tue, Apr 05, 2016


    After a brief hiatus, the podcast you love and adore is back! (You love and adore it. Don't argue with me.)

    This week I talk about the impostor syndrome. Not the one where folks think they aren't worthy of being a writer or artist, but the one where they FAKE thinking they aren't worthy. It's impostor impostor syndrome, if you will. And it's crap! Knock it off!

    This week I talk about how I have been helped throughout my career, which is why I try to help others out as much as possible. Whether through this podcast, or with the Writers Coffeehouse, or by giving advice, or even a reference, I try to pay it forward and give it back where I can.

  • Writing In Suburbia #10: Prepare For Success!
    Wed, Aug 26, 2015


    Hello!

    Here be Episode 10 of Writing In Suburbia. I talk a lot about how, as writers, we prepare for failure and rejection, but rarely do we prepare for success. You know, when things actually go right. That's a lot harder to deal with than you think.

    I also enjoy a nice cup of warm coffee. Mmmmm, coffee...

    Cheers!

    Wed, Aug 19, 2015


    Welcome back to more of Writing In Suburbia!

    In this episode I talk about what bugs me about being a pro writer while totally owning up to how lucky I am to be doing what I do. It's pure privileged whining, that's for sure.

    On this week's Writing In Suburbia, I go into the differences between writing on spec and writing on contract. I talk a little about the risks and rewards of each and why I have chosen one path over the other. Sort of.

  • Writing In Suburbia #5: Juggling Act!
    Wed, Jul 08, 2015


    In the fifth episode of Writing In Suburbia, I discuss the juggling act of figuring out what to write next. I discuss the problem of committing to projects too soon which could lead to missing prime opportunities that haven't shown up yet. It's not a Catch-22, not a Sophie's Choice, it's a juggling act!

    I also talk about cleaning the kitchen. Becuase that place gets gross.

    Wed, Jul 01, 2015


    In the fourth episode of Writing In Suburbia I chat about what social media means to me and what I see are the keys to being usccessful on it. Or not on it. Or who cares. I rant a bit about my love/hate/hate relationship with social media. It's cathartic for me, hopefully helpful for you.

    Wed, Jun 17, 2015


    In this episode I talk a little about the importance of paying attention to taxes- what you owe, what you might owe, and why you can't always trust your accountant to be on top of things. I also decide not to send the HOA police after you. You are welcome. I'm a giver that way.
