Debut author B. Michael Stevens joins host Richard Paolinelli this week to discuss The Goddess Gambit. Marketing a novel that doesn’t fit a specific genre and Stevens’ story in the upcoming Planetary Anthology: Pluto.
Afterwards, Richard discusses a disturbing trend: Gatekeeping. It has him running a little hot under the collar. But don’t worry, no show hosts were injured during the filming of this week’s episode.
Dawn Witzke joins host Richard Paolinelli to talk about her Underground series and her experiences with anthologies. Richard closes out the show with an important message about how you can help out a young woman in need of serious medical and financial aid.
We talk about her Underground series and her experiences with anthologies as well as the upcoming Planetary Series: Pluto anthology from Superversive Press. Richard closes out the show with an important message about how you can help out a young woman in need of serious medical and financial aid.

She discusses her own scribe’s journey, why she edits other authors’ books & why it is vital that all authors have their books edited before submitting to an agent or a publisher. We talk about our collaboration to help finish the late author Gibson Michaels’ fourth and final book, Eerie. We also explore her connection to this mysterious woman from the past who was a true pioneer.
We overcame some connection issues on Dawn’s end, and a microphone issue on mine (stupid new webcam) which led to me donning the headset this week and looking like a play-by-play man for a hockey game. But at the end of the day, we had a great time.

Tosca will be on to talk about her latest release, The Line Between, which has joined several other books on my “must-read-whenever-I-have-more-than-five-free-seconds” list. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to talking to her in April.
