Writer Types Podcast—Episode 5

Episode 5 of the podcast I co-host with Eric Beetner is officially here!

We connect with David Zeltsermen about the new Netflix movie, “Small Crimes,” based on his fantastic 2008 novel of the same name. We also catch up with the host of TCM’s Noir Alley, Eddie Muller. And we chat with Catriona McPherson, fresh off her 2017 Agatha Award win for Best Historical Novel. What else? Tom Pitts talks about his new novel, AMERICAN STATIC, Shaun Harris signs Eric’s copy of THE HEMINGWAY THIEF, and Sarah M. Chen reads some flash fiction from the vaults at Shotgun Honey. We also spent a night at BookPeople in Austin with Scott Montgomery, Mike McCrary and Gabino Iglesias. And did we mention our fabulous reviewers, Kate Malmon and Dan Malmon, of Crimespree Magazine?

Writer Types Reviews & Subscriptions

The more my co-host, Eric Beetner, and I dig into this podcasting thing, the more we realize that it’s a lot like book publishing—creating something can be a lot easier than spreading the word about it. That’s why Subscribers, Ratings and Reviews are sooooo important.

To that end, I wanted to share a couple of recent reviews with you:
