Jeff kicks things off with a writing update before singing the praises of a book he recently finished: The Long Season by Michael Vance Gurley–a gay hockey romance set in 1926 Chicago.
Jennah Scott joins us for the 2016 GRL Blog Tour to talk about her recent book Evan’s Luck, which she co-wrote with H. Sterling. She talks Kansas City BBQ!
Jeff & Will discuss the recently released author’s earnings report as well as some specific figures released by thriller/non-fiction author (and podcaster) Joanna Penn. Will goes on to celebrate filmmaker Irwin Allen, whose 100th birthday was on June 12.
To celebrate audiobook month, voice over artist Derrick McClain is welcomed to the podcast. Derrick discusses how he came to love gay romance, how he got started as a narrator and answers the burning question: is it difficult or embarrassing to narrate a sex scene.
Remember, you can listen and subscribe to the podcast anytime on iTunes, Google Play Music, Stitcher, PlayerFM, YouTube and audio file download.
