Your doorway to unlimited self expression

Apr 30, 2017

Host Gerald Everett Jones and his co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Thomas Page discuss “Mystery and True Crime” with special guest author Marvin J. Wolf. Wolf is the author of the Rabbi Ben mysteries: For Whom the Shofar Blows, A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn, and the forthcoming A Tale of Two Rabbis. Marv responds to our questions, including:

  1. How does mystery fiction differ from true crime?
  2. What is a police procedural? Do all mysteries fall into that category?
  3. Have you ever come across a story that you thought was too painful or too troubling to write?
  4. How does the training and skillset of a journalist inform the work of a mystery novelist?
  5. Is it a truism that social media is killing journalism these days?
  6. A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn is full of Judaic scholarship. Did you just absorb all that detail over the years, or was it a research project in itself?

And, as ever, there's lots of advice on how to get published, including the support resources at our website getpublishedradio.com.

We don’t know whether it’s a retro response to today’s media, but there seems to be a lot of interest in books that get made one at a time. We’ll hear from Jacob Samuel, a fine-arts publisher whose limited-edition books are so carefully crafted they’re considered museum pieces even when they’re new. And we also welcome David Drum, a journalist, novelist, and poet who makes and sells his own hand-crafted editions. 

What IS a handmade book? Are there different types? How did you come to do them, and how do you market them?

Even if you have a publicist working for you, these days authors are expected to have an active social media presence. So we’ll get the scoop from two experts. We’ll be hearing from Stephanie Michele, founder of SocialBling.com, who is consultant in all things digital, including social media metrics. But first up is Debra Eckerling, founder of the Write On! writer’s group and a professional blogger and goal coach.

The two most important questions for authors who are promoting themselves are:

  • What's an effective social media strategy?
  • How do you measure success?

And, as ever, there's lots of advice on how to get published, including the support resources at our website getpublishedradio.com.

Gerald and co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Thomas Page consider how poetry and spoken word before an audience can both entertain and stimulate the creative process. And...

  • What IS the difference between poetry and spoken word?
  • Why do you think live poetry readings and spoken-word presentations have become so popular?
  • Radio shows and podcasts – particularly podcasts – of poetry seem to be gaining in popularity. Do you think this is a new opportunity for poets?
  • Have you ever tried to write poetry? Spoken word?

Then we're joined by special guest, creative coach Terrie Silverman, who responds to:

  • How do you help people develop and investigate their stories – whether for the page or the stage?
  • How does your own work inform your teaching?
  • You seem to have a talent for drawing expression out of people who want to write but haven’t had much previous success at it. What’s the secret to getting it all to flow?
  • Have you ever found that someone’s work is painful, either to them or to the group? How do you deal with that?
  • Of the people who intend to write memoir, how often to you find it morphing into something else?
  • Is self-expression always therapeutic?
  • What are the challenges of performing your writing or your stories?
  • How can our listeners get in touch with you?

And, as ever, there's lots of advice on how to get published, including the support resources at our website getpublishedradio.com.
