If you’re not familiar with the fella:

If you’d like to hear Joshua Marsella in a full length conversation before you commit, try the two episodes of Creative Ops he was on. The first time was a pretty standard author get-to-know-ya-style interview. We talked about all kinds of stuff. The second one was focused completely on the how-tos of successful self publishing. Check them out here or download them wherever you get podcasts!

Creative Ops | Ep.38 | Joshua Marsella – Author of ”Scratches” and ”Severed” Creative Ops

Joshua Marsella is an Army veteran turned stay-at-home dad and horror author. His books "Scratches" and "Severed" are making a lot of noise on the indie horror scene. We talk about his military experience, struggles and triumphs with mental health, and OF COURSE his creative process as a writer. Books, films, adaptations, Stephen frigging King, military stories, dad stories, being a creative writer, and lots more. Such a nice guy. I hope you enjoy the interview and decide to check out one and/or all of his books. Lastly, be on the lookout for his collection HUNGER FOR DEATH when it becomes available on Halloween 2021 (mwah-ha-ha!). . . . SOCIAL LINKS Joshua Marsella on: Instagram Twitter Amazon Links

Joshua Marsella’s new podcast is called WRITERS ON WAX.

This is a podcast by hosted by a writer, guested by other writers, and together they talk about all things related to barefoot hiking.

Ok, it’s about writing. But not just How do you write? type questions that I might ask. They’ll speak more specifically about how music influences them and their writing. You’ll hear writer talk, music talk, and at least one adorable Maine accent.

(Don’t tell him I called his accent adorable. Or do. I don’t care. He’s not that much bigger than me…)

Marsella describes the podcast thusly:

A place where authors sit down with host Joshua Marsella to discuss their musical writing influences.
