Justin, Terry, Paul, and Scott discuss prioritizing your works between the commercial and the niche. Also, we talk about the Hugo Awards and Sad Puppies, Justin’s inability to sing, the sweetness of the mute button, and Harper Collins threatening to leave Amazon. It’s a monster of an episode. Enjoy.

Updating the DRS Amazon Store

A long time ago I started setting up a store for people who wanted to purchase stories written by the hosts and guests of the Dead Robots’ Society, but apparently I never did much with it, so this morning I decided to rectify that. If you’d like to read my novel STILL WATER, or Terry’s EMPIRE OF BONES, or (the Gods forbid) Paul’s THE BLACK, then here is a link that’ll take you right to them. Thank you in advance, and have a Happy Presidents’ Day!
