- EPISODE 5: In this episode I chat with successful full-time writer who is “totally the SHIT on Amazon” Melissa F. Olson about author friendships. Melissa and I shatter the myth of competitive authors, share the story of how we met, talk about why writer friendships are so vital in this lonely profession, talk about how women writers in particular can indeed have it all – just not all at once! – and offer tips to both budding baby writers and established pros on how to cultivate author friendship. Listen below or on iTunes.

- EPISODE FOUR: In this episode I chat with my agent, Hannah Bowman, about the daunting task of story structure. We answer Twitter questions, talk about why opera fans are great at writing synopses, and I admonish her for spoiling all of your favorite shows. Listen below or on iTunes.
- EPISODE THREE: You Don’t Own Meeeeeee. Chat about when one becomes a “real writer,” the Everest of publishing, who owns your time, Swecon roundup, and the annoying inevitability of publisher rights grabs.
I’m working on a project to record all of my short fiction in podcast form (and hopefully some GW snippets soon). These will go up on my website once it’s live. The header (Kcast and etc.) will likely change, and I’d like to get a better audio recording device, but here’s a taste of what I’m up to:
I’ll probably record this a couple more times to get the tone right.
Next up is “Wonder Maul Doll,” which pretty much nobody’s ever read (it originally appeared in a little anthology called From the Trenches), but it’s a seriously brutal women story. Hurrah!
