New Podcast teaser: Lauren Proves Magic is Real

Hi all! Judith here. Today I want to talk about something near and dear to my heart: a well crafted podcast. Now it’s no secret that I adore many things in the land of books. Surprisingly, one of these is something that isn’t even written. For an avid reader like me, that’s unprecedented. But hands down I love a podcast. Listening to people talk about books? Yesssss. It is a wonderful and engrossing way to learn more about the written word with the added bonus of learning the personalities of the people recommending those books through the spoken word.

So what else do I love in books? Collaborative story-telling, diverse press Blind Eye Books, author Ginn Hale, and author/editor Nicole Kimberling. As separate entities they are amazing; as part of the same new serialized podcast that explores the intersections of good storytelling, fantasy, and authorship? PHENOMENAL.

Lauren Proves Magic is Real! is a unique new way to experience SFF. It incorporates the fantastic elements of old time radio plays with fresh content, voice acting, and SFF world-building. It’s a mash up of my favorite, the podcast, with a crafted fantasy story rich in character development and piled high with a whole lot of magic and devilry. The creator, Nicole Kimberling, stopped by Binge on Books today with a teaser trailer of this new podcast and along with the whole cast lets us know what we can expect from future episodes.

Time to Tease: Author Chat with Roan Parrish

Welcome to…TIME TO TEASE! A Friday post that hopefully will titillate and tempt and ultimately tide you over until the real deal hits the site next week!

“What exactly are you teasing us with, Judith?” you are no doubt asking yourself. Well, let me tell you!BoB Podcast Graphic for Roan Parrish

About two weeks ago, I sat down with author, Roan Parrish, and recorded a podcast that ran the gamut of literature: from House of Leaves to China Mieville, from Donna Tartt to Pig Latin as language of choice among the hip English Professor crowd. If you can imagine it, we discussed it. We talked a lot. A LOT. Most importantly though, we talked Out of Nowhere, Parrish’s upcoming release. It’s the much talked about sequel to her stunning debut, In the Middle of Somewhere, and it will gut you. No joke. Gut. You. But in the best possible way (if there is a best possible way to sob and ugly cry and roll around on the floor devastated that it’s over while riding the subway).

So today’s teaser is a teeny, tiny little outtake from that recording session where both of us reveal a secret of sorts. So…sit back and enjoy a little Roan Parrish in anticipation of her podcast out next week!

Roan ParrishRoan Parrish is currently wandering between Philadelphia and New Orleans. When not writing, she can usually be found cutting her friends’ hair, meandering through whatever city she’s in while listening to torch songs and melodic death metal, or cooking overly elaborate meals. She loves bonfires, winter beaches, minor chord harmonies, and self-tattooing. One time she may or may not have baked a six-layer chocolate cake and then thrown it out the window in a fit of pique.
