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!
Welcome to the show feel free to call in and join the convertsation or just to chat 657-383-1813 :) I have not done a show in a while and its great to be back doing them again. I have not had much time lately to do one because i have been working alot but today i have a chance to do one which will be awesome. Not sure what the topic of discussion will be yet today but i guess i will just go with the flow and do my normal show today. If anyone has anything they think should be discussed on the show feel free to call in and we can discuss it and make points and hopefully get people's attention on the issue at hand. I'm glad to be back and i hope everyone that is able to listen can listen. :)

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.
The number one question my blogging clients ask, "How can I monetize my blog?"
When you monetize your blog there are a few questions you need to ask yourself?
1. Is it congruent to my blog?
2. Does it add value for my readers?
3. Do I use and recommend it?
Monetizing your blog is not about throwing up a bunch of ads and products just for the sake of a sell. That just makes your blog look spammy.
Begin at the start and look at who you want to attract to your blog.
In today's podcast we will cover the 3 places you can place your monetization for the biggest impact.
Let's learn how to best monitze your blog for your readers.
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.
