There's a new writing podcast in town called The Roundtable Podcast, and it has become one of my favorites. Know what the best part is? I had the privileged of being on the show as a guest writer! The two hosts Dave Robison and Brion Humphrey invite a guest writer on the show, and they along with an author guest host listen to the guest writer's story, and then work shop it. They asked me who I would want as the guest host author for the episode I would be on, and I told them to try and get Dan wells. Dan Wells, author of the John Cleaver trilogy published by Tor, Partials a apocalyptic YA published by Harper Collins, The Hollow City a dystopian story about a paranoid schizophrenic published by Tor, and other stories.
Not only was it an honor and a blast to be on the show, it was very valuable for me as well. I believe the story we work shopped, working title The Truth About Zombies, will be the best book I have written yet, and I think the reason is because it was work shopped. I have found in finally giving a full novel to a bunch of beta readers that A LOT of problems with the story slipped past me. Many of these are problems I could have avoided if I would have work shopped the story. If you're a writer there is some great stuff in the episode, and you'll get to hear my next novel being formed between me and the three other awesome dudes. Check it out! I'll be putting it in my podcast fiction feed, but you should click on the link at the top of this post "being on the show" to check out their site so you can leave comments there once you're done listening. One last thing - I have already written the first chapter and Dave, a host of The Roundtable Podcast, was kind enough to record an awesome introduction for my reading of it. Look for my reading of chapter one of my next novel The Truth About Zombies to hit my podcast feed soon as well. Thanks for stopping by!
