It’s the things-that-aren’t in the episode edition of your weekly #AmWriting email! First off, about 60 seconds in, I mention (this is KJ, it’s nearly always KJ) a podcast I like. But then I flake off to look up the name… and forget to ever mention it again. It’s the Crappy Friends Podcast with Kristan Higgins and Joss Dey. And it’s FICTION GOLD. E…

This episode is for you if: you’re starting, re-starting or sparking a freelance career with a focus on something you’re passionate about OR you’ve ever thought the heck with this, I’m striking out on my own.

As a bonus this week, we’re sharing “The Bulletproof Writer” from the Write Now Podcast—because this past few weeks have NOT been a perfect time for me to write, with guests and celebrations and also setbacks and discouragements. Not only is that often true, it’s pretty much always true. The challenge is to write anyway, and Sarah offers help and c…
 
Hey pals! Today, we’re raving over HOW TO FIND A PRINCESS by Alyssa Cole. Makeda is a hardworking gal/people-pleaser trying to avoid her alleged secret royal past and Bez is chaos embodied who's trying to avenge her grandmother's honor.

It’s hard to start. It’s hard to finish. It’s hard to choose. Sometimes writers (especially those who have had to step back from a professional journalism job for family or other reasons) have all the ideas and in some sense, all the time to execute them, and the result isn’t wild productivity, but a frustrating spinning of wheels—because if everyt…

Hey pals! Today, we’re obsessing over NEON GODS by Katee Robert in honor of Pride Month. Listen to us rave over two chaotic bisexuals in this Hades and Persephone retelling. They go wild with some pretty exciting kink and while we would be very uncomfy doing it, we're not here to yuck anyone's consensual yum! Plus, a surprise cat appearance in the …
 
Oh yeah we’ve been there. Heck, we are there. Pigeonholed. Safe in our little bunker. Maybe just a tiny bit typecast. Jumping genres can be exciting, scary, nerve-wracking. But it can be done. Everybody gravitates to one genre or another when we get started. Maybe nonfiction feels a little less threatening—or maybe it feels too hard and fiction is …

Hey pals! Today, we’re gushing over ACCIDENTALLY ENGAGED by Farah Heron.

Some of us, which might be all of us, have spent a decent amount of time writhing in the throes of writer envy lately. Can’t IMAGINE what we’re talking about? Never opened Facebook to see news of yet another Netflix deal, or celebrated a friend’s fantastic New York Times review while just a little bit kind of secretly asking yourself where yours wa…

Hey pals! Today, we're miraculously wrapping up our discussion of NEW MOON by Stephenie Meyer in just two parts. Don't worry, this episode is just as packed full of bonus content, laughs, much deserved Edward Cullen roasting, and anti-Team Jacob propaganda as the rest of our episodes.

Jess here. A.J. Jacobs has long been my inspiration for both writing and writerly mentorship, so I was thrilled when his forthcoming book, The Puzzler: One Man’s Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, from Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life landed on my doorstep. I adore A.J.’s work and this book might be a new favorite. We talk a…

Hey pals! Today, we’re raving over THE MADNESS OF LORD IAN MACKENZIE by Jennifer Ashley. We meet Lord Ian Mackenzie, the youngest son of a duke and a hero who has had it more than rough because he's on the autism spectrum in the Victorian Era.

Fave return guest alert! We talked to Mary Laura Philpott in episode 71–#YouandYourBookstore, back when she was a Parnassus Books guru.

Where should your energy go? KJ here, and in this episode Jess and I catch up on what’s worth it and what isn’t when it comes to travel, the importance of getting over any (non-pandemic-related) hesitation around taking the time for conferences and work events and also, in our usual digressive fashion, covers, paperback launches and boots. Links fr…

Like all great stories, The Vortex: A True Story of History’s Deadliest Storm, an Unspeakable War, and Liberation was born out of writerly curiosity and a deceptively simple question: Why would India build a wall around Bangladesh? I (Jess) spoke with co-authors Scott Carney and Jason Miklian about their collaboration and the work involved in answe…

Hey pals! Today, we're swooning, swearing, and slamming BRIDGERTON Season 2! We loved. We hated. And basically we died at this wildly evocative second season to Netflix's biggest hit.

Hey pals! Today, we’re raving over PEOPLE WE MEET ON VACATION by Emily Henry. Alex and Poppy met in a very Harry Met Sally-inspired moment and then proceeded to spend 12 years being best friends and not boning even once.
