To celebrate my Kickstarter for the Wyrd West Chronicles, I’m doing a series of livestreamed interviews with people who are doing similar stuff to what I’m doing in Once Upon a Time in the Wyrd West! These interviews will appear on Kickstarter Live and will be simultaneously streamed to my Facebook Author Page, then uploaded to my YouTube channel afterwards. Here’s the schedule so far:
- Wednesday, July 25 – Sarah Buhrman, author of the Runespells Series, will come to discuss magical realism, Pagan symbolism in fantasy, and the challenges of being a working class writer.
- Friday, July 27 – Joe Compton of GoIndieNow will talk about the challenges of indies getting the word out, what he’s doing to address that, and why you should Go Indie Now!
- Sunday, July 29 – Cat Rambo, Nebula-nominated author and President of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) will chat with me about Weird Westerns and steampunk fiction! We’ll also talk about how the publishing market, especially in science fiction and fantasy is changing, and what SFWA is doing to address that.
- Saturday, August 4 – C.L. Cannon, fantasy author and owner of Fiction Atlas Press, will chat with me about fantasy fiction, indie cooperative publishing, and the challenges of indie marketing.
There will probably be more events added to the schedule, as I’m waiting to hear back from a couple of people I’ve queried. Cheer Stephenson-Papworth of the Band of the Dystopian Authors and Fans has confirmed she will join me, but the date is not set yet.
Pre-order and support Once Upon a Time in the Wyrd West today! Dystopia, high fantasy, western, steampunk, science fiction and post-apocalyptic, but at heart, still a story about family and people … you’ve never seen anything quite like this before!
