And we’re back.
My guest last week was the incredible Chadwick Ginther. I met Chadwick in Calgary at When Words Collide, and I thought this was someone I wanted to have on the show, and he agreed to do it when I saw him again in Winnipeg. Unfortunately, our first conversation did not go as I planned. We resumed our conversation a few weeks back and Chadwick appeared on my podcast.
So before you go and give it a listen, take a look at some of the questions answered by Chadwick below.
Joshua Pantalleresco: What are you working on right now?
Chadwick Ginther: Now that the Thunder Road trilogy is complete, I’m finishing the edits on a long-gestating first book in a potentially ongoing series. It’s urban fantasy flirting with horror, also set in Winnipeg. It’ll be going out to agents soon.
JP: So when you write, do you listen to music? If so, what do you listen to?
CG: I absolutely listen to music when I write. Every story I write gets its own soundtrack that I listen to while I work on it, although occasionally I’ll just throw my entire music library on random and hope serendipity strikes.
JP: What do you enjoy writing more, novels or short stories?
CG: I am a novelist by inclination. Short stories can be more satisfying for me, as it’s less time for me to get a tale told and out into the world, but I rarely write short fiction unless there’s an anthology open call that interests me, or an editor specifically asks me for a story.
JP: Anything you’d like to add?
CG: In addition to writing, I’m co-host of the Winnipeg arm of the Chiaroscuro Reading Series with Samantha Beiko. If you write sci-fi, fantasy, horror, or weird fiction and think you’ll be in Winnipeg in January, April, July, or October, please get in touch.
