After last week’s long episode, we have a very short one this week. Just a basic check in. This hasn’t been a very eventful week, given that I’ve been nursing a bad back for several days. I am feeling better now, and my wife and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day a little early.

This week’s Promo is for Veronica Giguere’s short story The Keepers.

Enjoy the show. See you next week!

This year I have been fortunate enough to be invited as a panelist to Balticon 45.  This is my first time being a panelist at a con, and I’m really looking forward to it. I also want to make sure I do my fair share of making the con an entertaining and enlightening experience for everyone (so they’ll invite me back…). I’ve submitted a number of ideas for Panels that I might be able to participate in, or even lead.

But as I’ve remarked elsewhere, sometimes an author (or podcaster) is too close to his own materiel to be able to see what others find interesting… So I’m asking you. If you’re reading this, you’re following one of my projects, either my tech blog, The Nifty Tech Blog, or my podcast, The Shrinking Man Project, or maybe you like some of the short stories I’ve written for Every Photo Tells…, or perhaps heard my appearances on Galley Table. At the very least, you’re someone who is aware of me and some of the things I’ve done.

So I’m asking you to pitch me ideas. Given my background with tech, social media, podcasting, story-telling, writing, and such, what kind of panels would you be interested in seeing me in participating? If you’re going to Balticon 45 (even if it is only in your imagination), what would you like to see me doing, or hear me talking about as part of a panel?

Feel free to comment at whatever length. I want to hear what you’ve got in mind.

Welcome back, folks. This week we have a long and rambly podcast named Small Steps. Go figure. We’re back to Philosophy this week, looking at how to deal with big projects by breaking them down into smaller pieces. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a lot of prep work done, so this has turned out to be a long, rough, and rambly podcast.

This week we’re featuring a promo for Gaia’s Voyages from Broken Sea Audio.

Be sure to check out The Lighter Mom Project, and pick up Scott Roche’s Music Box at Smashwords.

Enjoy the show. See you next week!

Welcome back. Just doing a simple check in this week as I dig out from under the snow. Hope everyone has managed to stay warm and healthy. Sorry about posting this so late in the day. After I did my weigh in my noisy neighbors got noisy and I was’t able to tape the rest of the show until very late in the day.

The Promo is for Paul Elard Cooley’s Fiends, Volume 1, coming soon from Shadow Publications.

Enjoy the show. See you next week!
