    Talking heads ,book nerds Stephen Campbell & Pam Stack discuss books and authors

    in Books

    In a very special presentation, tonight former colleagues and author interviewers Stephen Campbell, host of the Author Biz and Pam Stack, host of Authors on the  sit down to discuss authors, books and interviewing.  

    Join these two book nerds for a LIVE chat about the best job in the world. 

     About Stephen Campbell:  Before getting into the business of writing I spent twenty-five years in the technology business as a financial guy, and then as a serial entrepreneur. I know what it takes to start and run a successful business. Will that experience translate into me becoming a successful author? Ha! The answer is no, of course not. But I did learn a few important lessons while running my own businesses. One of those was importance of being guided by experts. I'll be bringing those experts in on a weekly basis so we can all learn from them.

    About Pam Stack:  I've always been a voracious reader plus a public speaker so when I was asked to co-host a radio talk show, it seemed like the natural next step for me.  I love hosting the Authors on the Air radio show and being the executive producer of the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network.  I get to speak to the most interesting people; I'm the luckiest blabber-mouth in the world.

    Author Nick Pirog (Henry Bins & Thomas Prescott) on Authors on the Air LIVE

    in Books

    Authors on the Air Host Pam Stack welcomes back Nick Pirog to the studio.  We had so much fun last time Nick visited (he couldn't remember the name of one of his books) I had to ask him to come back and try to stump him again.

    From Nick: When I do a book talk or when I'm just chatting with someone about the craft, I find myself telling them things that I would want to know, if say, I was having a conversation with John Grisham. So here are a couple tidbits that you might find interesting.  My favorite five books are, in order; To Kill a Mockingbird, The Giver, Ender's Game, The Testament, and Plum Island.  Visit http://nickthriller.com for more about Nick.

    Crime Fiction Master ROBERT CRAIS is LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is honored to welcome crime fiction master, author Robert Crais to the studio in a rare interview about his new book, THE PROMISE.    In the mid-eighties, feeling constrained by the collaborative working requirements of Hollywood, Crais resigned from a lucrative position as a contract writer and television producer in order to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a novelist. His first efforts proved unsuccessful, but upon the death of his father in 1985, Crais was inspired to create Elvis Cole, using elements of his own life as the basis of the story. The resulting novel, The Monkey’s Raincoat, won the Anthony and Macavity Awards and was nominated for the Edgar Award. It has since been selected as one of the 100 Favorite Mysteries of the Century by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association.  ELVIS AND JOE ARE BACK! This time they join forces with SUSPECT heroes Scott James and his K9 partner, Maggie, in RC's new novel, THE PROMISE.

    Former police officer turned author David Putnam is LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes David Putnam, retired cop turned author.  

    During his law enforcement career, David Putnam worked primarily in California on teams for Patrol, Investigations, SWAT, Narcotics, Violent Crimes, Criminal Intelligence, Internal Affairs, Detective Bureau and as child protective services coordinator.  He rounded out his law enforcement career with a few years in the Hawaiian Islands as a Special Agent-part of a real-life "Hawaii-50″ team. He's now retired from law enforcement and spends his time growing organic California avocados and writing, with his wife Mary and their three dogs.  On his inspiration:  "I was working a surveillance out in Lucerne Valley, flat desolate desert. We were watching a meth lab. When not on point, the chase cars could to do what they wanted, as long as we were immediately available to the radio in case the suspect went mobile. Some detectives watched portable TVs in their cars, some played softball and others just hung out. I always kept five or six books in my backseat for these types of investigations. I came down to my last novel and started to read it. It didn’t hold my attention. I thought: “I can do better!” So with a yellow pad and pencil I penned my first four novels, and found it much more difficult that I’d thought.

    THIS IS A LIVE INTERVIEW BEGINNING AT 9PM/ET  /   6PM/PT.  HERE IS THE LINK  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/authorsontheair/2015/10/28/former-police-officer-turned-author-david-putnam-is-live-on-authors-on-the-air

    Thirller author James Hankins discusses writing on Authors on the Air LIVE

    in Books

    Authors on the Air Global Radio Network host Pam Stack welcomes thriller novelist James Hankins.  I truly enjoy having James visit the show. He's a savvy guest, a terrific writer and a wonderful guest host (listen to his podcast with Daniel Palmer).  Tonight we will discuss the craft of writing a thriller novel and James's writing process.  He will also talk about his current release, THE PRETTIEST ONE.  Here's a little synopsis:  "When Caitlin Sommers finds herself alone in a deserted parking lot with blood on her clothes and no memory of the past few months, it seems like one of the nightmares that have tormented her for years…but it’s all too real. Desperate to learn the truth about where she’s been and what has happened to her but terrified of what she may find, Caitlin embarks on a search for answers. Her journey takes her from the safe suburban world she knows to a seedy town she’s never heard of, where a terrible truth from her past lies hidden—a truth she can’t quite remember yet can’t completely forget."
