Switchers by Christopher Tallon

How do you do, sir and/or madam?

If you clicked on this for one, two, or all of the authors in the title, here’s what I’m talking about. I looked at my book’s Goodreads page and it said this:

Switchers by Christopher Tallon
My book!

And I already checked out Holly and Luther. I’ve actually been in touch with both of them and plan to have them introduce themselves and their books to my listeners over at America’s favorite podcast, Creative Ops.

So look for them, probably towards the end of summer, on Creative Ops–wherever you download podcasts!

a podcast for creative people, by creative people

And in the meantime, here are a few writer episodes you can check out. The ones that say BOOK RELEASE focus more on my book, Switchers, and I talk to my crew that helped me get that thing into the world.

Ep.76 | Ashley Nash – Illustrator & Muralist on Passion, Purpose, and Event Planning Creative Ops

Ashley Nash is a talented visual artist (illustration/painting/murals) with a degree in art (focus on illustration) from GVSU. She's originally from Muskegon, now living in Grand Rapids, and freelances as an artist while also working as the Head Creative Designer at Pharmhouse Wellness (which you already know of if you've been listening). She's part of the creative duo that puts together the Pharmhouse events, such as the Art Market from Ep.73. Check out http://www.PharmhouseWellness.com for more info on what they've got coming up, links, etc… Ashley talks about her youthful inspiration and support, winning over skeptical family with your art, getting screwed over as an artist, and finding your way in all the madness–professionally and otherwise, learning, and unlearning. You can find Ashley's creative work around various parts of west Michigan and/or on her Instagram, on which you can FOLLOW HER on Instagram: @nashleyillustration. You can click HERE for ALL of her links, and you can email her (business-related inquiries only, please) at Nashleysart@gmail. . . . Big shout out to Pharmhouse Wellness for letting me sell books at their art markets AND inside their lobby! If you're in Grand Rapids and you need a dispensary…Pharmhouse Wellness. Look for their cannabis-themed art and exercise events on their IG and FB pages.   . . .
