Lunarian Press Interviews Me!

I always rejoice when my peers think well of me. Being interviewed is (to me) and indication someone appreciates me and what I do.

Or doesn’t and wants to keep me away from the keyboard so none will suffer.

One must consider all possibilities, you know.

In any case, Lunarian Press interviewed me and it’s up and live.

Please take a look, leave a comment, have a go, have at it, and let us know what you think.

Thanks!

Talking about inspiration, titles, protagonists, genre, author toolkits and more with Patricia M. Osborne

West Sussex author and MA in Creative Writing scholar Patricia M. Osborne invited me to guest post on her blog.

 
She asked for ~500 words on writing.

She asked for it on a day I had a breakthrough on my work-in-progress.

I ended up writing about inspiration, figuring out book titles, defining protagonist issues, the difference between genre and literature, learning what’s in your author’s toolkit, and letting your writing educate you.

I enjoyed it. Hope you do, too.

Let us know what you think – Guest Feature – Joseph Carrabis.

17 or so Minutes with Author Tina O’Hailey

I recently had the good fortune to spend seventeen or so minutes with author Tina O’Hailey.
Tina’s spends her days as a professor at Savannah College of Art and Design. Ah, but the rest of her life is spent writing fiction (she’s written technical/academic books, too. We forgive her. We did the same in our distant past, when we were young and foolish).

 
You can find Tina online at:

And of course, right here…for seventeen or so minutes.

Enjoy!

 

I’m Arm Casted by Armand Rosamilia

Want to hear me rolling with the punches? Give a listen to Arm Cast Podcast: Episode 341 – Carrabis.

 
I’m fascinated, listening to it. We talked a bit about the business Susan and I had, my past writing, re-evaluating past writing, practicing my writing, learning to describe something in five words instead of fifty, taking courses, reading books, perfecting my craft, and applying my research talents to writing good books.

No, really, we did.

And then we talk about the publishing world that existed when I wrote trade-technicals (late 1980’s-early 1990’s) and how it is now. Specifically, what’s changed and what’s not.

Give a listen and let us know what you think.

(and thanks)

I Get Faithy with Jay Wilburn (but only if it matters)

Jay Wilburn interviewed me on wide-ranging subjects on his Matters of Faith podcast.

Jay’s blurb: The Matters of Faith Podcast with your host Jay Wilburn on Project Entertainment Network explores individual stories of faith and personal struggle. The show does not have an agenda, but seeks to detail the personal experiences of people within various faith communities and people with experiences outside those communities – within organized religion and with spiritual views outside of those traditions. Every person has a story. It may not be your story, but their experiences may help you, may lift you up, or may inspire you as you live out your own story. Listening to the stories of others helps us all to understand each other better as we live out our lives in the world we share. We are all trying to figure out life. This show is meant to help us discuss topics about our journey through life that do not get discussed openly, honestly, and positively often enough.

 

I enjoyed it and recommend his show to others, both listening and being interviewed. He’s talented, disarming, and entertaining. Nice combo when you can get it.

Thanks, Jay!
