    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.

    Pam Stack, host of Authors on the Air, is pleased to welcome back to the studio, Chuck Greaves.  Based on a trove of newly discovered documents, Tom & Lucky (and George & Cokey Flo) tells the true story of a singular trial in American history: an epic clash between a crime-busting district attorney and an all-powerful mob boss who, in the crucible of a Manhattan courtroom, battle for the heart and soul of a dispirited nation. Blending elements of political thriller, courtroom drama, and hard-boiled pulp, author C. Joseph Greaves introduces readers to the likes of Al Capone, Dutch Schultz, Meyer Lansky, and Bugsy Siegel while taking readers behind the scenes of a corrupt criminal justice system in which sinners may be saints and heroes may prove to be the biggest villains of all. Chuck Greaves spent 25 years as an L.A. trial lawyer before turning his attention to fiction. His debut novel HUSH MONEY (Minotaur), a legal mystery, won the SouthWest Writers' International Writing Contest, received starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, and was a Critics' Pick from Kirkus Reviews. HUSH MONEY has been named a finalist for numerous national awards and honors, including the Rocky Award (Left-Coast Crime), the Reviewers' Choice Award (RT Book Reviews), the Shamus Award (P.I. Writers of America) and the Audie Award for Best Mystery audiobook of 2012 (Audio Publishers Association.)

It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
    A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.

    A Piece of the Pie -- Write Stuff -- 11/17/2015

    in Entertainment

    Have you ever been in a situation when God blesses you that all of a sudden you have so-called friends and relatives coming out of the woodwork? Maybe you've been blessed to have more money, a successful career move, a budding relationship, and someone you know wants a piece of the action?

    Yet, you and you alone,  know the story behind the blessings God has given you. You know the struggles you went through, the many times you were overlooked, and how many lonely days you spent. You were the one who prayed and cried over and over again for His hand to move in your life. Even more so, maybe those blessings have come but you may still be having issues in other areas of your life. But sometimes, when others see the Lord working blessings for you, why is that they want a piece of the pie? 

    Join me as I talk with Michelle Lindo Rice, national bestselling author of the upcoming release, A Piece of the Pie. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can click on the link here: Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app. Tune in!
