Episode 3 – Multiple Projects is available for download

Rampaging singularities might be a roadblock for some, but not for us. Our third episode has been posted, and now is available for download via your method of choice. In this episode, hosted by Amanda Cales, we discuss the problems and benefits of working on more than one project at a time, as well as delving a bit into how other things like movies and reading other books can impact your work. I hope everyone enjoys the show and gets as much out of it as we did.


A black hole swept through the Dead Robots’ office

At least, that’s the story we’re going with. Due to forces beyond our control (the aforementioned rampaging black hole, natch) we have had to delay recording episode four until next week. But, all is not lost! Episode three is nearly ready to post up, so the pain and heartache should be mitigated to some degree, so chin up, buckaroos. We’re still here. It’ll take more than a rogue singularity to keep us down.

Now, please return to your regularly scheduled program…


Episode 2 – Character Creation is now up

Hi, everyone! Just a quick note to say that we have uploaded our second episode, and it is now available for mass consumption. In this episode Ryan, Amanda, Steve, and I all talk about our different methods for creating characters, and we even speak a little about how we have our characters develop throughout the story they are part of. During the course of our conversation we mention the following websites:

Michael A. Stackpole’s “Stormwolf”

Seventh Sanctum

Holly Lisle Shop


So please, give the show a listen, and please leave feedback, both here and at our iTunes page in the iTunes store. Take care!

I hope everyone enjoys the show. We’re learning as we go, so expect the show to evolve as we get more familiar with the process. The topic we discussed was outlining, and there were plenty of thoughts and opinions bandied about. I hope you enjoy it, and know that more is on the way.

Episodes are on the way!

Wow, the job of getting a podcast up and running has been harder than I thought it would! There are so many things to contend with and aspects to manage. It’s a wonder any podcasts ever get off the ground. Be that as it may, tonight we recorded our first official podcast, and hopefully it will be up soon, along with Episode Zero, which is where we try to let you – the listener – know who we are as writers and as people. Please check back soon for our episodes, and thanks for coming by.


Hello, And Welcome!

Hi, everyone! My name is Justin Macumber, and I am one of the co-hosts for what we are hoping will be a weekly podcast of aspiring writers who are seeking to help each other and the millions of other aspiring writers out there reach the promised land that is book publication. I hope everyone enjoys the podcast we put out, and I hope you all enjoy your time here. Comment, contribute, be involved! The more we help each other, the more we help ourselves.

 And with that, I bid you farewell. Thanks for coming by.
