Author Chris Paynter joined us tonight to chat a little bit about her new book, To Love Free. We also chatted just a bit about her experiences moving from a publishing house to self publishing.
If you’re looking for even more of Chris, give a listen to her first guest spot on Cocktail Hour when we talked about Survived by Her Longtime Companion, which Andy and I both enjoyed very much.

You’re in for a treat! We were joined by one of our own, Barbell host and author, Bev Prescott. We had a fantastic discussion about her brand new novel, Blowback. We also talked about the next two projects that Bev’s working on AND we got a little insider info from her publisher, who was in the audience.
If you’re interested in winning one of two signed paperbacks of Blowback, leave a comment below sharing something regarding gun control, ways we as a community can help to reduce gun violence, or how gun violence has affected you, personally. Or just say hi and let us know that you enjoyed the show and if anything in particular touched you. All comments posted on or before December 5th will be eligible to win.

Hey, Andy here! Author, Renee Mackenzie joined us for a Conversation at the Bar to make us aware that she can still be had – even though her former publisher is no longer in business. That’s right, Renee is now with Affinity and you can skip over there to find Nesting, her third novel, which will be available for purchase after the 15th of October. And for you travelers, she will be in P-town this year. We even got a sneak peek of her fourth novel, 23 Miles, which is due in March of 2015. Is it March, yet? Seriously, you can buy Renee…ahem…her books through the usual sources.
