SBW Podcast Updates--iTunes, New Episodes and More!


This past week I finally did it--I migrated all of the back episodes of the See Brian Write podcast from SoundCloud over to Spreaker. I've been using Spreaker for the Co-Op Critics podcast and I love it, as it's a much more flexible platform than SoundCloud is for podcasters with multiple shows. And now that I've gotten all of the back episodes over to the new platform, the next phase of the See Brian Write podcast can begin.

First off, the podcast is now available on iTunes, and will soon be available on Google Play as well. I won't bore you with why SBW wasn't on iTunes before, as it has to do with SoundCloud. But all thirty-two episodes of the show are available on iTunes now, and you can subscribe on iTunes right here. You can also see them on the Spreaker page for the show (and use this RSS feed if you want to subscribe with a different podcatcher).

You can also listen to any and all of the episodes right here in the player below:

Listen to "SBW: Conversations With Creative People" on Spreaker.

Secondly, the show is going to be rebranded a bit. You'll notice the title of the podcast is now SBW: Conversations With Creative People. I feel like this title is a more accurate representation of the show and where I want it to go. SBW will always be a podcast that is predominatly about writing, but even more so, it's about the creative process. I've had horror writers, romance writers, comic creators, poets and more on the show, and I will continue to do so. If you make things, I want to talk to you about them.

Which brings me to my last point--new episodes will be coming soon! I am in the process of reaching out to a few people I've been meaning to have on the show, and I will hopefully be recording some new interviews soon. My original plan was to have this next season of SBW focus on horror, and that's still my plan.

So, go catch up on the back episodes for now, and stay tuned for more information about the upcoming season soon. Thanks for listening!

First off, you can still pre-order A Pizza My Heart for $0.99, and you can it at that price for the next couple weeks. After that, the price will be $2.99, so grab it while it's hot! Either way though, you're getting an pizza-filled anthology for less than the price of a small pie.

And an awesome anthology it is. I've had a chance to read all the stories in it, and I feel so lucky to be a part of this project with writers who are much more talented than I am. I think everyone who reads this will find a new writer to be a fan of--there is something in this anthology for everyone. Kind of like when you go to a party and there's a bunch of pizzas with different toppings there for you to choose from.

One reason I am super excited about this anthology is that it features the debut of a major character in the upcoming Orchard Pointe series that Jolene Haley and I are writing together. Kit Marsh is a huge part of OP, and the short story I wrote for A Pizza My Heart features Kit, a stray dog, and a drifter who just might turn up in the pages of an Orchard Pointe book one day (okay, he totally will turn up, but probably not until book two).

Jolene and I had originally planned to release Orchard Pointe last summer, so this would have been the second time folks were reading her. But I'm kind of happy things turned out like they did, because I think this first introduction really demonstrates why Jolene and I love this character so much. And those who enjoy this story will have plenty to look forward to when Orchard Pointe releases later this year.

But my story is just one slice of the delicious pie that is A PIZZA MY HEART. So grab the book, order your favorite pizza and enjoy!
