Ep 2.59 - LIVE! with Nick Bailey and Darren Bullock

August 29, 2017

Today's episode of keystroke medium came after a couple of months of finagling. Schedules had to be accommodated and technology barriers overcome.

The result is the first five person show we have done. The guests, Nick Bailey and Darren Bullock, surprised Josh, Ralph, and Scott more than a few times. To say it was a rowdy interview might be understating the facts.

Nick and Darren describe the thirty year development of their novel, Liberator, and delve into what makes a good character, how to write collaboratively, and why they started Dust Publishing.

If you have ever wanted to write as part of a team, this is a good episode to watch. This episode is both entertaining and informative.

Ep. 2.58 - LIVE! with Michael J Sullivan

August 29, 2017

Michael J Sullivan joins Keystroke Medium today talking about writing fantasy. Josh and Scott were extremely excited with this interview, and not just because they're trying to leverage his contacts to get Brandon Sanderson on the show.

Sullivan is the creator of the Riyria Revelations series. A self-taught author, he has enjoyed extraordinary success in recent years. He started when he was thirteen and wrote very seriously for over ten years. Like many of our guests, life got in the way until he was able to come back to it.

We've had many authors talk about the transition from self publishing to traditional publishing. Sullivan is the first, I believe who went back and forth due to situations Beyond anyone's control. The story is both fascinating in a little bit scary. (He of course tells it well.)

What are some other bonuses of this episode? Sullivan talks about his elaborate beta reader system and also positive experience with traditional editors.

We also go into how his fantasy is different from other popular fantasy today.

If you love the genre, or if you're a writer looking for inspiration to keep going, this is the episode for you.

Awakened: Paragons Book One

When Dark Portals Open, Heroes Will Awaken.

Israel Trent is a man living his dream as a crime reporter for the Chicago Tribune.

Erin Simms is a young woman whose life is a blur of neon lights, drug-fueled diversions, and being in the wrong places with the wrong people.

These two strangers wake up together in a modern day dungeon with no memory of how they got there and come face to face with monsters that neither ever dreamed existed. Rescued by agents of the mysterious Sentry Group, the duo soon find their lives turned upside down.

As Israel and Erin learn about the hidden parts of human history and the secret societies that keep it that way, the truth of their own incredible genetic legacy is revealed. Armed with powers they never imagined could be real, Israel and Erin must choose whether to stand against the horrors soon to be unleashed upon the world or step back and let humanity fend for itself. They must discover what it means to be Awakened.

Awakened is the first book of The Paragons Trilogy. It’s a gripping origin story filled with mystery, fast paced action, horrific threats, and bewildering fringe science. If you enjoy an action thriller with a heavy dose of the fantastic, you'll love C.Steven Manley’s Awakened.
