Has anyone else noticed a lull in “writing” podcasts? Sure, there are plenty of shows out there, but I’ve been out of content for days. Enter my favorite show, Adventures In SciFi Publishing, and their plan for 2013 to put out three or more shows a week. I classified their show as a “writing” podcast, but it is more than just for writers, it’s for anyone who enjoys reading, listening to or watching Science Fiction and Fantasy–maybe even Horror, as their last guest talked about his post-apocalyptic story, Tincture. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I was pleased to hear that he is releasing it online in text and podcast.His story and characters sound very interesting, so as soon as I get to my laptop, I’ll be subscribing on iTunes (stupid Android… don’t get me started).
Did you know that this blog post counts as an entry into AISFP’s giveaway of Brenda Cooper’s highly-acclaimed SF novel, The Creative Fire (Book One of Ruby’s Song)? That’s really the only reason I’m writing this, I don’t even know these guys… Just kidding. I had the pleasure of interviewing the hosts of AISFP on my podcast, AudioTim, Episode 34.
The real reason I’m writing this post is to encourage you to listen to their show, and, if led, donate to their cause ($3/month for insider status) or purchase a sponsorship on their show. Check out their “State of the Pod” episode for more info.
For those on a tight budget, I feel ya, my wife has put a freeze on our extra spending, too. But I have a few ideas that could create some extra cash in your budget.
The first is through a mobile app called gym-pac. You could make your monthly donation in one week’s workout. See their site for more details. The trainers at my gym (Farrell’s) have been using it for six months and rave about getting paid to work out (they’re doing it anyway, so why not?)! If you do, “shrugnorma” is my instructor’s promo code.
The second is using Swagbucks as your search engine. I know there are others out there, but this is what I use, and I earn $10-15 a month in Amazon gift cards just normally searching.
There you go, links to improving your health, earning extra cash, an awesome podcast, and the first of many book giveaways. Spread the word!
