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.

Three-time Dragon Award Finalist, Declan Finn, soldiers through back pain and joins host Richard Paolinelli (a one-time Dragon Award Finalist), who dug his way out of this weekend’s snowpocalypse in Omaha, this week.
Declan Finn is the author of books ranging from thrillers to urban fantasy to SciFi, including the 2016 Dragon Award Nominated Novel for Best horror, Honor at Stake. He works for Silver Empire Press as their book of the month club. He can be found at his website, declanfinn.com.
The two authors discuss Finn’s Saint Tommy NYPD series and their respective editions of the Planetary Anthology series they are editing for Superversive Press.
Author/Editor Dawn Greenfield Ireland is this week’s guest. She and host Richard Paolinelli discuss her journey to becoming an author, why she edits other author’s works and why it is vital that all authors have their books edited before submitting to an agent or publisher.
They also discuss their work on finishing the late Gibson Michaels’ fourth and final book, Eerie, and Dawn’s very talented Great Aunt Ora Nichols, a trailblazer in the field of sound effects in the Golden Age of Radio.
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.
Make sure you check out Dawn’s books – especially The Last Dog – and if you are looking for an editor drop her an e-mail at email@example.com
An amazing author, and fellow Nebraskan, Tosca Lee, will be our guest author on April 3rd. Lee highlights a solid group of four authors who will be on the show to talk about their latest works and their own journey along a scribe’s life.
Lee is a multi-award winner, as well as a New York Times bestselling author. Her novel, Firstborn, garnered two top awards at the 2018 Realm Makers in St. Louis. For a complete listing of her books and awards check out her website here.
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.
Here’s the schedule for April:
April 3 – Tosca Lee
April 10 – Adele Park
April 17 – Eric Hedden
April 24 – Amy Bovaird
Slots for May are already filling up as well as shows for future months. If you are an author, or Indie publisher, who’d like to be on a future show, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
The second show is live and our featured author is Gibson Michaels.
A little different setup this week in that Gibson passed away on Sept. 7, 2017, so obviously, this isn’t a live interview. But he was an amazing author and an even better friend and he would have been a live guest here.
But, thanks to a video blogger named Jason Zacarola, we have about a five-minute clip of him talking about his Sentience Trilogy, which was a 2016 Dragon Award finalist for Best Military Sci-Fi.
I also talk about his fourth and final book, Eerie, which is coming out later this spring. He was working on it when he passed and a group of people have been working on finishing it for him and for his fans.
I also discuss the differences between traditional and independent publishing as well as those authors, like myself, who are considered hybrids because we do both.
Its a good show and I think you will enjoy it. Here’s the link to the video on YouTube:
