SORT BY Relevancy
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!
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!
NCTE on THE USE OF GRAPHIC NOVELS & A CONVERSATION ABOUT "BANNED BOOKS WEEK"
ST. Louis University Professor Jennifer Buehler and University of Central Florida's Jeff Kaplan are our guests
Presented by The Great Books Foundation
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.
Vampire novels with a twist!
Author Sheri Lewis Wohl, inspired by the 19th century novel, Carmilla, a Victorian-era lesbian vampire story, began writing her own highly popular series starring vampire Riah Preston, daughter of Henry VII. The latest in that series, Vermillion Justice, published by Bold Strokes Books and released June 2014, is a finalist for the 2014 Rainbow Award .
Hosts Rez and Andy talk to Sheri about the inspiration behind the stories, her audience, publishing experiences and the most probable places for lesbian vampire attacks.

Dreamers Radio is happy to welcome Linda Covella, author of The Castle Blues Quake and Yakimali's Gift.
Taken from her Amazon page:
"Linda Covella's varied job experience and education (associate degrees in art, business and mechanical drafting & design, a BS degree in Manufacturing Management) have led her down many paths and enriched her life experiences. But one thing she never strayed from is her love of writing.
A writer for over 30 years, her first official publication was a restaurant review column in a local newspaper, and as a freelance writer, she continued to publish numerous articles in a variety of publications. But when she published articles for children's magazines ("Games and Toys in Ancient Rome" and "Traveling the Tokaido in 17th Century Japan," in Learning Through History magazine, and "Barry's Very Grown Up Day" in Zootles magazine), she realized she'd found her niche: writing for children. She wants to share with kids and teens her love of books: the worlds they open, the things they teach, the feelings they express.
Yakimali's Gift, a historical novel for young adults published by Astraea Press, and middle grade paranormal The Castle Blues Quake published by Beau Coup Publishing are her first novels.
She's a member of Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI)."
