August 22, 2019

All of us go through difficult times at some point or other, but how do we see it through to the other side as authors? When life gets hard, how can we keep up with our writing--and should we even try? Our guest, Washington Post columnist turned Amazon bestselling author, Martha Carr, helps us wade through these questions and more on tonight's episode.

This episode is brought to you by The Lost Starship: The Complete Saga by Joshua James

Save the cure. Kill the crew.

That was the dying order of the captain of the starship Elixr. The ship followed the order. Then it lost its mind.

Two decades later, the last chance to save billions of souls rests with the dead starship's only occupants: a pair of boys raised by a deranged robot. When Elixr crashes on a barren world, they join forces with an impoverished girl living on the edge of society to search for answers.

Who are they? Why have they survived? And what could Elixr possibly do to save a world on the precipice of collapse?

The more they learn, the greater the stakes become. Soon they are running for their lives from secret societies, deadly creatures, and powerful warlords. As enemies multiply, it seems the secrets of the lost starship may never be discovered.

But Elixr is hiding more than secrets. Much more.

THE LOST STARSHIP box set includes:

  • Elixr
  • Redeemr
  • Destroyr

Fans of fun, action-packed sci-fi will have a blast with The Lost Starship series!

Dating can be... interesting when you've put yourself out there by publishing a book or two or twenty. Just ask Sarah Noffke, the author of Everyone in LA is an REDACTED. In today's episode, we ask her about life as a single-parent author and how her experiences dating in LA made for great stories, laughs, and lessons learned.

Tonight's episode is brought to you by Expansion Publisher's Pack: Books 1&2 by Devon C. Ford

Book 1 RECON:
The universe is expanding, and so is humanity’s reach

Years after clean energy ended the world’s reliance on fossil fuels, a lull of peace encompasses all of humanity. Some think we should travel to the distant corners of the galaxy, others oppose the idea, thinking that the harnessed singularity reactors are unnatural.

When a terrorist group attacks the Lunar colony, members of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force are divided as a result of the incursion.

Years later, Lieutenant Commander Kyle Torres comes face to face with old friends, as he’s thrown into an assignment that could change everything: a reconnaissance mission with huge implications for humanity and science alike.

Start the epic journey as Earth begins its venture into deep space, where not everything is as it seems. From Devon C Ford, the best-selling author of the hit Post-Apocalyptic series, After It Happened

Book 2 CONTACT:
Aliens. New worlds. A contact that will shake humanity

The recon ship, the Ichi, made contact with alien beings far from home, making new allies and new enemies.

The hastily-built fleet makes for the Centauri system, desperate to catch up with the Ichi, and their arrival comes just in time to encounter the almost invisible threat of the war-like Va’alen. But the fleet soon discovers that what is dominant technology in one solar system is dangerously out of its depth in another.

Finding themselves in the middle of an alien conflict, inadvertently picking sides in exchange for advanced technology, the true cost of war is brought home to them in stark reality and loss of life.

Leaving Centauri for Earth, and unaware of the scale of power and technology they will need to secure the system and all the resources it holds, Admiral Dassiova’s fleet is in deeper water than they can imagine.

Continue the epic Expansion series, picking up where Recon ended off. From Devon C Ford, the best-selling author of the hit Post-Apocalyptic series, After It Happened
