Just Joshing Episode 13: Christine Steendam Part 2 and Melinda Friesen

Hey everyone. The new site is definitely growing.  I’ve added a couple of sections to the page.   First off, long overdue, is the Stormdancer section of the website.  I’m really proud of the book, and can say it’s done well with myself.  That said, I haven’t given it the love it deserves at thisContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 13: Christine Steendam Part 2 and Melinda Friesen”

Just Joshing Episode 12: Christine Steendam Part 1

I’m really happy that I got a chance to talk to Christine again.  Christine first appeared a couple of years back here.  Christine was awesome to talk to, and we hit it off well.   When my podcast became reality I wanted to have Christine on my podcast and she agreed.  Our first conversation isContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 12: Christine Steendam Part 1”

Just Joshing Episode 11: Saima K. Sophia

In my opinion, Saima K. Sophia is a real life superhero.  Sure, she doesn’t wear a cape or wear spandex that blinds people on site – rather she has made it part of her life mission to help out people.  Her day job involves work at Plan – a charity who looks after rights ofContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 11: Saima K. Sophia”

Just Joshing Episode 10: Vanessa Cardui

Now, now, I know what you’re thinking with the title:  what in the hell happened to episode 9 with Randy McCharles?  I still haven’t received the answers to the questions with Randy yet, but when I do, I will happily post the blog here about it.  If you do want to hear the podcast withContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 10: Vanessa Cardui”

End of NanoWrimo

I don’t have anything magical planned or excuses to make.  I’m behind on the nanowrimo deal.  It always seems that i have things going on in November.  I’m moving, I have a day job, my podcast seems to be slowly rising in the podomatic rankings, and it’s been just a lot of time and energyContinue reading “End of NanoWrimo”

Just joshing Episode 8: Simon Rose

Simon Rose is no stranger to this blog.  Next to Dirk Manning I have probably interviewed Simon more than anyone else during my time doing these things.  Simon has made me a better interviewer and allowed me to perfect my style.  I owe him a huge debt of gratitude for it, and wanted him onContinue reading “Just joshing Episode 8: Simon Rose”

Just Joshing Episode 7: Rae Hope Pantalleresco

It’s been over a year, and once again, My sweet, innocent…okay, that may be going a touch too far, but nonetheless, Rae Hope Pantalleresco returns to my blog.  Like from last time I talked to her,  She is doing another Art Show at the Lux Laundromat.  Unlike last time, I interviewed her for my podcast,Continue reading “Just Joshing Episode 7: Rae Hope Pantalleresco”

Just Joshing Episode 6: Ella Beaumont

So I’m still catching up from the last couple of weeks here, so even though episode 7 of the podcast is live now, I’m focussing on Episode 6.   Ella Beaumont is kind of frightening.  Not because she is the all powerful acquisitions editor of Edge Publishing;  rather, very few people I’ve met come acrossContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 6: Ella Beaumont”

Just Joshing Episode 5 Part 2: Joanne Morcom

It’s been a busy couple of weeks.  I ended up going to two conventions on very short notice.  This isn’t going to get the attention it deserves, but it needs to go up now.  I mentioned Irish Beth Maddock in the last blog, and I am now going to mention the other guest on theContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 5 Part 2: Joanne Morcom”

Just Joshing Episode 5 Part 1: Irish Beth Maddock

This week’s podcast has two guests, so instead of the standard write up of the guest, I’ll be splitting this blog in two to give each guest their own spotlight.  Joanne’s will be online next tuesday.  Today, we focus on Irish Beth Maddock. Irish is a children’s author.  Her illustrated book The Great Carp EscapeContinue reading “Just Joshing Episode 5 Part 1: Irish Beth Maddock”
