Way back in February, the popular literary podcast The Books That Make You interviewed me about Danger Peak and the writing process in general. Although my Back to the ‘80s podcast interview was released first, this interview was actually recorded first. It’s also my first (and, so far, only) video podcast interview, so watch/listen to me have a nervous breakdown during my first ever podcast interview!
The interview is first going to play on the radio station MyStar95.com this Sunday, April 9th at 5 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. PST (8 p.m. and 11 p.m. EST). Yes, that’s also Easter, but c’mon, listening to a guy talk about his book from the ‘80s has got to be more interesting than a forced dinner conversation with extended family, right? Plus, as I mentioned before, I have a nervous breakdown! It’s really a wonder to behold!
Here is the radio station’s website:
A video podcast of the interview will be posted on YouTube next Thursday, April 13th (lucky number, indeed). I will update this blog with the link when that happens. It will be available from everywhere people get their podcasts. It is distributed through Libsyn and available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, and everywhere podcasts are downloaded. In the meantime, here is the podcast’s website:
And here is the Books That Make You YouTube channel:
Here is my video interview on YouTube (some of the jokes from the audio-only radio interview will actually make sense now that you can see what we were talking about):
If you make it to the end of the interview, you’ll see that I got stumped by the question, “What advice would you give other writers?” If I’d had time to formulate a proper response, I would’ve said the following:
I appreciate the question, but I never know how to answer it because asking me for advice implies that I’m an expert, and I’m here to tell you that I’m definitely not an expert. I’m stumbling in the dark just like everyone else. I’m making it up as I go along, which is the very definition of writing.
