ASJ: Show 30

Our scheduled guest, Adrianna Gavazzoni, had a last-minute emergency that called her away. We’ll try to get her on sometime in October.

It was the perfect complement to this month. As we started off with the Google issue that has impacted how we record the show and then this week’s loss of the guest. And it comes one day after host Richard Paolinelli had to reschedule his appearance on a show back east due to technical difficulties on the show’s end.

So, this week we talk a little about who’s up next and some advice for new authors on how to avoid the darker side of Social Media. You can listen to Richard’s advice on iTunes and on iHeartRadio when the show goes live on those platforms a little later today.

ASJ: A.M. FREEMAN (E028/S01)

New author A.M. Freeman is this week’s guest – after a 12-hour marathon by the show’s 65480776_10158623304884972_2886602559923945472_nproduction slaves, er, team to recover from Google ending the Hangouts over the weekend and leaving the show with no way to record the guest.

Happily, a back-up plan was installed (because we didn’t want to be on the receiving end of THAT look) and we had a great time talking to a young author we expect to hear great things from for many years to come.


And here are the links mentioned during her appearance:
