Hey everyone! My pal David Lee joins us today. Author, musician, Ornette Coleman biographer, chainsaw expert…fella wears many hats. Today we talk about the second book in his Midnight Games series, The Medusa Deep.
Bonus: I’ve finally taken our first interview, about the first book The Midnight Games, and posted it to the podcast page. Otherwise you’ll find it here.
Hey all! This week’s show features an interview with Roland Gulliver, the new Director at the Toronto International Festival of Authors. The festival starts today! There’s all kinds of really interesting things happening – online, of course, but the spirit remains the same. Gulliver discusses the challenges and opportunities presented by putting together a festival in such unusual circumstances. Tune in!
Happy Thursday! Today’s episode of Get Lit features an interview with poet Ross Belot. Another great experience for me – I learn a lot when I interview poets (well, when I interview anyone, really). Ross’ new collection is called Moving to Climate Change Hours and its’ available through Wolsak & Wynn.
Hey! It’s that time of year again. For those of us in the Hamilton area, GRIT LIT is upon us!
We bring back our most frequent guest, the most excellent Jennfer Gillies, to talk about all that’s happening with this year’s fest. I will be hosting an event too, which I’ll detail for you next week.
Also, if you’re in Hamilton and want to come see some folks read their work, come on out Friday April 5, 7 pm, to King West Books. I’ll be reading, along with Chris Bailey and Owain Nicholson, to support the book launch of Mooncalves by Victoria Hetherington. Dig this show!
After six weeks I’m still battling some kind of cold/flu/evil spirit invasion, so I’m going to get right to the point. Today we chat with Barbara Langhorst about her new novel, Want. Met Barbara a couple weeks ago as I joined her for a couple of dates on her book tour. It was a blast, and I hope you enjoy our conversation!
The blog section of this site is becoming a bit unwieldy. I’m looking into a simple table of contents plug-in that will allow you to browse past episodes of the show by guest, so look out for that.
I’m also about to launch the show, in edited forms (with time-sensitive information removed) as a podcast. It will likely be available in all the usual places – iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, etc.
I’m also working on some exciting things that I cannot currently reveal. I’ll keep you in the loop! Otherwise, it’s business as usual – writing, writing, and more writing.
