Happy April Fools Day to those of you listening to this episode on the 1st. To the rest of you, I hope you had a fun April 1st.
There has been a lot going on around here lately. I managed to finish the final set of revisions on my upcoming YA Novel, Mik Murdoch, Boy Superhero. Next is layout and sending out Advanced Reader Copies for review. This is pins and needles time for me. I really hope people like it and give me lots of good reviews!
Now that revising Mik is out of the way (at least temporarily), I’m back to work getting GalaxyBillies ready for submission. In the off chance that you are an editor, agent or publisher and you listen to this show and you would like to see it, please let me know. I do have a couple of leads with this one, so I don’t want to sit on it too long.
I’m also working on three collaborative projects: there is the Jack Kane novel that JRMurdock and I have written that we are getting ready for submission, there’s the ActionPackPodcast that I’m writing Boyscouts of the Apocalypse for and last but not least, there is the Mad Scientist Anthology that I’m co-editing with Jeffrey Hite. All three are going well but each takes some of my time.
Finally, before we get into the show I wanted to mention that it is once again Parsec awards season. I would dearly love to have Get Published nominated again. If you have enjoyed Get Published and think it should be in the running, please go to www.parsecawards.com and nominate the show. I believe the category it best fits in is: Best Podcast about Speculative Fiction Content Creation. I believe nominations open April 14th.
But that’s enough of my rambling. Today I am very pleased to have Tad Williams as my guest. He talks about two of his books that have been picked up for film. It is a great conversation, as always with him. I also talk about guest posts and what I’m doing on my site and what I hope to accomplish with them.
That’s the lineup for today. I hope you enjoy the show.
