Literate Liquors Episode 14 – Anthologies

For a change, John has a theme for his post, and it’s about anthologies, which often have a theme of their own. Huh, wonder if I planned that?

Nope, not a chance.

And because I reference it in the podcast, here is a picture of a cat in Bojangle’s chicken box.

Literate Liquors Episode 13

Lucky number 13 is here, and it’s here first! I was running late this week, so this was just recorded this morning, and I’m putting it up on MW before it hits anywhere else. I talk about the new SFWA membership rules, and whether or not I’m planning on joining. Y’all enjoy!

Literate Liquors Episode 13.

Literate Liquors featuring Tonia Brown!

Wednesday night I got together with a bunch of my favorite people, including Misty, Faith, Jay, Darin, Nicole, Matthew, Robyne and a bunch of other writerly types, and we had a drink or two, had a meal and hung out. Joining us all the way from the hinterlands of North Carolina was horror/comedy writer Tonia Brown! Since Tonia doesn’t make it to Charlotte all that often (or if she does, the terms of my restraining order prevent me from being within 100 yards of her), I kidnapped her for a little while and whisked her away to my portable recording studio and we put another episode of Literate Liquors in the can.

Translation – I put the laptop on my lap, put the mic on the console between us, and we sat in the cab of my truck for an hour telling hilarious stories and talking about writing. Tonia has […]

Literate Liquors Episode 11

As our dear friend A.J. would say, “Bollocks!” Sorry I’m late today, life got away from me. I’m flying solo on this week’s Literate Liquors, but I’ll have a special guest next week. This week I’m pimping stuff by friends, in particular the Weird Western anthology that you may have heard Misty and I mention once or twice. I’m also promoting the Queers Destroy Science Fiction Kickstarter, not that it needs much help from me, since it funded within a few minutes. But it’s edited by the amazing Seanan McGuire (AKA Mira Grant) and is dedicated to giving voice to people all too frequently unheard in genre fiction. Gay rights and equality have been big issues for me for a long time, so I’m happy to support this KickStarter any way I can.

So Here’s this week’s Literate Liquors!

And Here’s a link to Queers Destroy Science Fiction!

Literate Liquors with Misty Massey – Episode 10 – Charlie, KickStarter, Cons and more!

So the lovely Misty Massey and I got together last week to chat about what’s going on in the world or writing, the world in general, and this little Kickstarter project she was marginally involved in. As always with me, the language is NSFW.

Also, if you’re anywhere in the Charlotte, Rock Hill or Gastonia areas next week don’t miss David & Faith signing books! They’ll be somewhere in Gastonia on Tuesday the 20th and at The Book Knack in Rock Hill on Wednesday the 21st! Come on out and say hi! There is a greater than zero possibility that I’ll be there hanging out at one of these events for at least a little while!

I also have a new release coming out next week on Tuesday the 20th, it’s the first in a new novella series for me, and here’s a little more about it –

Straight out […]

Heeeeee’s Baaaaaack!

Hey Y’all, watch this!

I’m back, gang, bringing my own particular style of mayhem and merriment to the Magical Words gang. Last year was a bit of a rough one, but I’m happy to be back and thrilled to have the opportunity to share with y’all my podcast, Literate Liquors. Some of you may remember a series of videos I produced with the same name a couple years ago, where I talked about writing, publishing and most importantly, drinking, with some of my favorite writers, including a bunch of folks from right here at MW.

Well, now I’m back, and producing Literate Liquors as a weekly podcast, instead of as a weakly video show (see what I did there?). And the fine folks at MW have asked if I wanted to use this site to co-host the podcast, and I said “ummm . . . yeah!”

So without further ado, […]
