Anxiety Attack

We gave ourselves an on-air (and mutual) anxiety attack in this week’s podcast as we talked out our plans for the rest of the year. We didn’t know how much we have going on until we turned on the microphone! The big part of the podcast was Content Editing. We got the draft back fromContinue reading “Anxiety Attack”

Imposter Syndrome

We always say we have a jampacked podcast and we’re usually right. Today’s fun started at Oh-dark-thirty when JT photographed a hot air balloon over Carson City, only to learn later that a friend and colleague was aboard. We ended up taking pictures of each other without knowing we were taking pictures of each other.Continue reading “Imposter Syndrome”

Marketing is Cruel

Episode 81 is all about making a plan to market our book and sticking to it. We say “Marketing is Cruel” because we are not the kind of people to rush out and beg people to read our books. We talk about the baby steps we’re taking to get over that hump and why we’reContinue reading “Marketing is Cruel”

Comedy is Hard

Welcome to the podcast where we misquote actor Edwin Guinn and others when we say, “Life is easy. Comedy is hard.” We discuss our mutual work in progress (WIP), and we agree that while we got the “Rom” part right, we misfired on the “Com” part. How did that happen? And what can we doContinue reading “Comedy is Hard”

Sick Leave

I’m on sick leave and I’m feeling an unreasonable sense of guilt because we absolutely should use sick leave when we’re sick, but the feeling persists. We’re trained from the first grade that we have to be at our desks five days a week from dawn to dusk. The training sticks for most of us,Continue reading “Sick Leave”

Podcast: Epiphany

This week’s writers’ podcast is a deep dive into “Romance is a Bonus Book,” and how this excellent series got us thinking about the choices we’ve made. We chat about the power you have over your life and the key question: “Who am I?”. Big-time spoilers. We may have shotgunned a gallon of coffee beforeContinue reading “Podcast: Epiphany”

Podcast: Stupid Romance

This week focuses on two important writers’ subjects:-The challenges and benefits of implicit bias in fiction.-CC’s and my favorite formula in fiction: stupid romance. We pull in Love Actually, Star Wars, Easter, the weather, and coming of age stories. Have a listen! We’d love to hear what you think via our comments page, even ifContinue reading “Podcast: Stupid Romance”

Retirement Practice

Good day, dear readers. Posting a Real Life update instead of editing the manuscript. In geezer language, we call this “procrastinating” or “what I should be doing now probably won’t get done tomorrow, either.” This may be old news in that I announced my retirement from the Day Job after 40 total years of publicContinue reading “Retirement Practice”
