The Book Team

Hey folks.

I did a short series of podcasts with some of the folks who helped me get my book, Switchers, ready for the world. It’s a fast-paced, suspenseful, time-travel story about kids in the 90s who get pulled into a time travel war against their future selves.

There’s time travel. Body swapping. A parasitic fungus that threatens humanity.

Good stuff.

Aaaaaanyway–here's my writer buddy for today's episode… .  .  . Brandon Scott is a talented author of wonderfully weird tales that do a bit of genre bending, leaning heavy on the horror and dark fantasy. He wrote the Vodou series and is in several short story anthologies.

I wasn’t able to get Joshua Marsella back on in time. He formatted my book. You can listen to his other appearances below. I’ll put my other friends’ prior spots in there as well.

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

Creative Ops | Ep.30 | Trophy Husbands – A Casual Conversation between the Super Friends, Kirk Ross and Christopher Tallon Creative Ops

Hey folks, I've been in a little bit of a creative funk lately. As it turns out, so was my buddy–the other half of podcasting's super friends, The Trophy Husbands–Kirk Ross. I asked him if he wanted to talk over some ideas, and we ended up just releasing our conversation as a podcast. We talk about the mission of CREATIVE OPS, get a few personal updates, talk shit, try to be funny…the usual. So you'll hear my cut here, and in the days to follow you can listen to Kirk's cut on A Talk in the Attic AND watch the video on his YouTube channel. I plan on having Kirk on for a planned interview sometime, but until then, catch up on his podcasts and videos, and follow him on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Peace out homefries!
