Writers Talking Season Finale Contest

Earlier today I was part of the live recorded podcast writers talking with host Matthew Wayne Selznick and author Matt Wallace. Our topic, fittingly enough, was horror. As I expected, recording the episode was very much like sitting around at a pub with a couple of writing friends, drinking some beer, talking about the craft of writing and sharing stories. In other words, I had a great time.

You can download and listen to this episode by clicking here: Download episode 18.

Kind of on the fly and (discussed just seconds before the recording of the show actually started), we decided it would be fun to put together a prize package for one randomly chosen winner, and it's a nice way to celebrate the season finale for this enjoyable and informative podcast.

Here's what you could win:

From Matt Wallace: Autographed copies of the anthology "Tattered Souls" and a bundle of prizes from the magazine "Murky Depths," including the limited edition promotional issue, the first issue, and a 20% off coupon for a year's subscription.

From Matthew Wayne Selznick: An autographed copy of "Brave Men Run - A Novel of the Sovereign Era," plus a "Brave Men Run" tee-shirt.

From me: An autographed copy of my book "One Hand Screaming" and the limited edition chapbook "Relic" (written with Carol Weekes and Michael Kelly) which has been autographed by all three authors.

How to enter: All you have to do is give either Matthew, Matt or myself some feedback about our writing — positive, negative, or both! It's your opportunity to talk back to the writers who've been talking!

Feedback must be submitted in one of three places:

Comment as often as you want, but each person will have just one entry in the random selection pool. Comments that don't include feedback on the works of Matt, Matthew, or Mark will be discarded from contest entry. Comments must be posted before December 1, 2007. The winner will be selected randomly by Matthew Wayne Selznick, and his decision is final.

So, without further ado, go download and listen to Episode Eighteen of writers talking. Then, if you haven't read any of my work in print, you can check out some free online samples from my book One Hand Screaming or you can check out the full length serialized novella told in blog format I, Death. Or go check out the podcasts or works of Matthew Wayne Selznick or Matt Wallace and comment away

And, you needn't say just nice things (but that, of course never hurts) -- comments eligible for the contest include the good, the bad and the ugly. So if there's something you don't like, let us have it. Don't worry, we're big boys. We can take it.
