Like Having a private sit-down w/ your favorite authors
At crime & mystery fiction conferences, it's well-known that the best place to meet & chat with your favorite authors is at the bar. Listening to this podcast is the next best thing to having a private sit-down with your writing heroes, whether you're a fan or a writer. Steve & Eric ask the questions you might ask yourself if you had the chance. As a writer myself, I appreciate the conversations with industry pros like editors and agents, and non-writers might like a peek behind the curtain. This is an all-around great podcast if you're a fan of crime/mystery fiction.
Blasting out of the barrel...
It’s fun to catch a podcast at its start and see how the show develops, but there are no beginner stumbles here. Fast, snappy interviews with crime and mystery writers, plus reviews and fiction. Jokey, but always interested in learning more. Hopefully they’ll have time and energy for longer-form interviews at some point; their guest list so far is enviable.
Well would you look at that: two episodes in and I'm addicted to this jazz. Eric and Steve bring a flow like they've been doing this for years.
Great interviews, tight book reviews, humor and a sweet dusting of slick background music. Keep on doin' what cha doin' fellas!
