Podcast with Wattpad!
I've done announcer-type work and voiceovers for years as kind of a side job, but I still don't love listening to myself. You, however, are welcome to. This is an interview I did last week with the exceedingly nice Pam from Wattpad, a very popular site for writers to post their work and gain free exposure. I'm bound to Amazon to keep "Ring of Fire" there exclusively for another few weeks, but I posted "Battle Axe" on Wattpad back in March and it's already received over 100,000 "reads." Pam asks me about my background in fiction, cartooning, advertising and whatever else we can think of.
When I realized I was probably a better writer than I was a cartoonist, I abandoned the dream of being a syndicated comic strip artist. Ten years or so later, I finally had an idea good enough to turn into a novel. In my spare time, I "maintain" a pair of blogs devoted to these respective hobbies.
