Hey, everyone, welcome back to Writer Groupie. We are chatting with Janie Franz, author of the paranormal fantasy series starting with Ruins, this time, Ruins Legacy .

Ruins Legacy by Janie Franz

We interviewed Janie a while back, at this link for episode 73 : Janie Franz, Acquisitions Editor

I hope you will listen to both of these great chats. They are linked (the two videos) in this one at YouTube. I am trying to create playlists there of dual/multiple interviews. If you like playlists, have a look on our Youtube channel and see what it looks like.

This time Janie and I have a good chat about the latest goings-on at Muse It Up Publishing, who is currently closed to subs, but you can bookmark the site anyway by going here: MuseItUpPublishing

And we also talk about her latest book, Ruins Legacy, which just came out in March.

Also, the audio in this chat is not as good as it needs to be…we were Skyping during a thunderstorm of epic proportions. Sorry about that!!!

You guys should try to glean all you can from our chat though, as Janie is very experienced at editing and writing, and she shares a lot of good info. Writers like me can learn a lot from her.

Hope you enjoy this one!

WGP Episode 76 – We’re BAAACK!

Hey everybody! We are back and this is our inaugural episode although it is numbered as though there was never a TWO YEAR BREAK! And of course, I have said in the video that this is episode 75 – and it is NOT. I would never take the limelight from Lori Roberts and her wonderful episode. You can go listen to it here. It is the real episode 75 not this one.

In this episode (76) you will hear:

  1. What has gone on for the last two years
  2. Who is now doing audio/video production for the show
  3. When you can get on the show for YOUR episode!
  4. A great new idea for you to get an audio clip of your book in front of OUR fans!

Things I still have to do:

  1. Figure out how to get this stuff uploaded to YouTube once again
  2. Ditto for iTunes
  3. Get a format down so that you guys are familiar with how it goes

Not that having a format is all that important for the interview segments. You are totally fine to make it the “Mr or Mrs My Book and all about me” show. But if you have some other sites you frequent that you would like to see our show go up at, please do let me know. (I am going to check out Twitch soon)

But, enough of my jabber. The latest episode is below and I hope you enjoy it.

Episode 74 Gerald Hausman, storyteller and author

gerald Gerald Hausman chatted with me about his work and the writing life.

gerald

Gerald Hausman is the author of more than 70 books. His live storytelling has been praised by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, History Channel, and the Bank Street College of Education. He and his wife have received numerous awards in the field of children’s literature.

“As a writer I have often been called a scribe. This is because in the gathering of oral tales, I have always tried to get the story right. To capture the flavor, the region and the moral as the original storyteller gave it to me. The NYT Book Review called my collection of American Indian stories, Tunkashila ‘an eloquent tribute to the first great storytellers of America.'”

In addition to his 22 years of story gathering and telling in New Mexico, Gerald also spent 13 summers on the island of Jamaica where he ran an informal writing school with his wife, Lorry. Together they collected Anansi stories, stories from and about the Kebra Nagast, and traditional West Indian ghost stories.

george-and-gerry-copy

“I remember when History Channel filmed tales from my book “Duppy Talk”. My best friend Roy was not an actor, but because of his handsome face he was cast as the man who was enchanted by a mermaid. When I saw him on film, I asked Roy how he was able to do the underwater scene and keep that look of astonishment when he saw the made-up mermaid smiling on the river bank. He told me, ‘That look on my face comes from the fact I can’t swim. I was very scared.'”

Gerald teaches writing workshops in various parts of the United States and is most recently the author of “The American Storybag” — 40 years of story gathering on and off the road. He lives on a barrier island in Florida.

    sullivan

    Kathryn Sullivan was born and raised in the Chicago suburb of Berkeley, Illinois, where she started writing her first stories.

Her short story collection, Agents & Adepts, won the 2003 Dream Realm Award for Best Anthology. Her children’s picture book, Michael & the Elf, has been reprinted by Guardian Angel Publishing.

    A Chick who has dug Time Lords for many years, she has an essay, “The Fanzine Factor”, in the Hugo Award-winning Chicks Dig Time Lords and a review in Outside In: 160 New Perspectives on 160 Doctor Who stories by 160 writers.

    Her recent works are short stories “Search and Rescue” and “The Oracle of Cilens” (Amazon) as well as “The Taste of Treasure” in Clockwork Spells and Magical Bells, and “The Theft of the Royal Jewels” in the pirate anthology A Tall Ship, A Star and Plunder (Dark Oak Press).

    She also has a review in Outside In Boldly Goes: 117 New Perspectives on 117 Classic Star Trek Stories By 117 Writers. She is a proud member of Broad Universe and EPIC. Any birdlike beings in her books only slightly resemble her cockatoo owner.

    Episode 69 – Co-authoring and the Survivalist series, with Sharon Ahern

    ahernSharon Ahern, Dragoncon

    Sharon Ahern, along with her late husband Jerry Ahern, is the co-writer of over ninety novels, some short stories, magazine and newspaper articles and even an unpublished song or two.  Best known of their work is THE SURVIVALIST series which ran from 1981 to 1993 and then picked up and continued in 2013 by Sharon with fellow friend and writer Bob Anderson. The series has been considered men’s adventure, science fiction and soap opera with a twist of in your face social commentary thrown in.  Two spinoffs have evolved from the SURVIVALIST series, EVERYMAN, also co-written with Bob Anderson, and CAMP ZERO, a young adult series, written by Sean Ellis. 

    An avid researcher, Sharon has traveled around the world during various times in history via national geographic and Britannica searching for information to broaden the scope of their stories and make them as fact based as possible.  In some cases, looking for a particular piece of information has led to the inception of still another story idea. Some days, all it takes is listening to the news.

    Sharon is also a professional photographer and a small-time antiques and collectibles dealer. She’s an avid reader and enjoys anything that requires getting dirty such as refinishing furniture and gardening and has lost a lot of her thumbprints using hot glue guns.  She is the proud mother of two children and five grandchildren and lives in Northeast Georgia with her hound dog Shelby and two goldfish.

    Her upcoming book LODESTAR will be the 34th book in the series. It will be available at Speaking Volumes http://www.speakingvolumes.us

Dana loves to cook and owned a successful catering business for a few years, before giving it up to focus on her family and write full-time. She shares her life with a Gemini husband who also knows every word to Les Mis, and three amazing daughters – an eleven-year-old theatre buff, a nine-year-old future mega-entrepreneur, and a curly-haired six-year-old who is the true CEO of the household.
