SORT BY Relevancy
Sweatpants & Novels invites you to slip into something comfy, pour a cup of coffee (or someting stronger!) and join host Richard M. Simms as he chats with Kathryn O'Sullivan, author of this month's read, Murder On The Hoof. The author -- whose third book, Neighing With Fire is set to come out this spring -- will share with us how she comes up with her delightfully devilish plots, why she chose to set the series in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and exactly how she manages to find time to write inbetween teaching and working on her award-winning Web series, THURSTON! Got questions? Give us a call. Otherwise, sit back, saddle up and enjoy the ride!
You've read the book. You’ve seen the movie. Now, join the conversation as the Sweatpants & Coffee book club, hosted by Richard Simms, takes on the most buzzed about novel of the past few years. What is it about Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl that elevated it from a decent thriller to a literary sensation. Why did the book’s ending upset so many readers? And did the book manage to make the leap to the big screen in tact? We’ll discuss all this and more during this week’s Sweatpants & Novels podcast. Join the conversation by calling in... and consider having a favorite quote/passage from the book to share with your fellow members!

Patricia K McCarthy is Ottawa’s fang queen. Her Crimson series of vampire novels tell the unconventional love story of Samuel and Magdalene Crimson, and are part-blood bath and part-bubble bath. Her writing teases readers to make it to the end of each chapter alive. Patricia was riding the vampire wave before there was one, which accounts for her flirtation with the dark art of satire. Read her Crimson series and you may never feel the same again as you walk the streets of Ottawa when the sun goes down.
As an indie publisher, Patricia’s knowledge of the business has been honed over the past fifteen years. Her interest in writing showed itself at six years of age. She has attended workshops on the fundamentals of writing, editing, and promotion, as well as having published three collections of passionate erotic poetry. Her work has been published in the U.K., Canada, and the U.S. In the beginning, her poetry evolved to short vampire stories and these in turn inspired her to begin the Crimson vampire series, which represents the last decade of her writing accomplishments. In between writing novels, she crafts short stories and works in Ottawa. Her work has received extensive publicity in Ottawa and elsewhere; copies of her media interviews can be read online. (See her website for details.)
Patricia divides her time between writing and work, coaching new authors, making appearances at fantasy fairs and exhibitions as well as holding workshops on Writing Fantasy Fiction.

From living a nightmare, to building a dream. Graphic Novelist J.C.S. may only be 27 years old but she has come a long way. Abused as a child, and seemingly lost as a teen, she has turned her scraps into diamonds. So far, she has written six novels, has published five of those novels, and as also finished a trilogy known as Anguished Immortals.
She will tell you, her goal was this: to publish and take care of her family. Her first attempt to write a novel came at the age of 15, and in between ten years, she tried and failed.
Growing up in Denver, Colorado, it was realized (and said) countless times that opportunity in the workforce was greater and more stable than most states, especially for a woman. But having Systemic Lupus and two children only ten and a half months apart changed everything.
Early 2012, inspiration came as J.C.S. decided to write her first romance novel. Even though it was a completed work, she saw that it wasn't yielding light on her talent. After doing a little research on the Archangel of Death and the Greek Goddess of War, Enyo, the makings of an Epic Fantasy trilogy had just begun.
Taking her work to Authonomy and trying out the first two books, J.C.S. realized that sticking with something she loved, Epic Fantasy, did her better than trying to fit in.
In 2013 J.C.S. wrote and published the first book to Bleeding Stars and Paper Hearts: Adrianna is Mine, following the same previewing and publishing path of her previous work. The audience from Authonomy helped her decide on publishing when not only had her book gone from #599 to #31 in a week, it stayed at #7 for three weeks and #1 for two.
Romance novelist Bernadette Walsh interviews Mexico City native Claudia Burgoa. Claudia now calls Colorado home. She writes contemporary romance novels and her titles include Unlike Any Other.

About Cassandre Dayne:
Cassandre started writing stories and poems before she knew how to ride a bike and proceeded onto novels by age eleven. By the time she was an early teenager, she had written fifteen novels. As early adulthood, college and life settled in; writing was placed on the back burner but never forgotten entirely. Suddenly awakened by the rampant fantasies and untold stories of characters that flowed through her dreams every night and filtered into her daylight hours; she could hold back the creative process no longer.
Cassandre writes highly erotic romance stories and novels in the contemporary, science fiction and paranormal flavors. Currently she has over fifty erotic romance novels published with Rebel Ink Press and several more under contract.
In addition, as her alter ego Bethany Halle, she is the host of the Edge on the World of Ink Network (a Blog Talk station) - taking authors to the very edge of their creative works.
Cassandre is the Managing Director of both the Entice and Edge lines for Booktrope Publishing.
