Normally, when I’ve done radio shows, it’s been related to promotion of a novel, or of my novels in general.

This week, it’s something completely different. (If you got the Monty Python reference, kudos. If not, Google them after you read this post. Then thank me in the comments if you ever make it back!)

This Thursday, I’m actually being interviewed twice – and those interviews will be available online. I’ll post links as soon as I have them.

On the first show, I’ll be interviewed by Dr. Gayle Carson, also known as the S.O.B. (That stands for Spunky Old Broad. What were you thinking?) Dr. Gayle has led quite an amazing life. If I had a radio show, I’d be wanting to interview her.

We met at an event, and the good doctor has since interviewed a couple other people from that same event. That includes Dustin Matthews, co-founder of Speaking Empire. Dr. Gayle does multiple radio shows, and on this one I’ll be talking about “Living Regret Free.”

The second interview will be with Dr. Jaime Kulaga. Dr. Jaime is a business coach and Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and I’ll be sharing some tips on creativity with her. Again, more info on where to find these recordings as soon as I have it.

If you’d like me as a guest – either speaking at your event or as a guest on your show – contact me via email at info@msahno.com or phone at (813) 528-2622. You can find audio clips of other appearances here on the Press Kit page.

Have a great week…and Happy Halloween!

Who Are Your Greatest Connections?

When it comes to networking, making connections with people who have a greater influence in your industry can be beneficial in ways that go on and on. This has proven true for many people, I'm sure, and I know I've seen it in my own experience. Two recent examples...
Whizzers

Authors’ Pandemic Sales and The Dubious Metric of “Necessities” Vs. “Luxuries”

​Considering everything going in the world, the past week was a pretty good one for me. Almost a year after its initial publication, my novel Whizzers—which had flatlined in the Kindle store—suddenly spiked to #179,500. When one of your babies jumps that much, it gets...

But I’m Too Busy to Blog!

If you're like me, you're a committed writer: maybe you keep to a rigorous writing schedule, or maybe you have actually written a full-length book or books. Chances are good that if you're reading this, you're also a blogger. Maybe you even have a blog like this one....

“Broke Down And Busted In The Promised Land”

Man, are you exhausted or what? I know I am. We all are, right? In fact, I was thinking of titling today's blog post Exhausted, but then the phrase "broke down and busted" drifted into my mind. It comes from a song by a band called The Hilltops, which eventually...

Does An ARC Have to Include A Cover Illustration?

One of the most confusing concepts in publishing is that of the Advance Reader Copy, or ARC. I call it confusing because there appears to be no universal agreement on what those initials actually mean. While some sources refer to an ARC as an Advance Reader Copy,...

Using IngramSpark and KDP Print For Your Paperbacks

This week's post is about using two different companies for Print-On-Demand publishing—IngramSpark and KDP. Ever since Amazon began offering services to authors, there's been a question in the indie author community: should I use them? My answer, initially, was a...

Recovery 202? Long-Term Sobriety Is Possible

So, the plan for today was to write a post about recovery. Unfortunately, I’m in a different kind of recovery mode today—recovering from a sinus infection. What that means for you, the reader, is I’m going to keep this short. Really short. I took my last drink 30...
service

What’s It All About, Anyway?

​As far as service goes, it can take the form of a million things. To do service, you don't have to be a doctor working in the slums for free, or become a social worker. Your position in life and what you do doesn't matter as much as how you do what you do. —Elisabeth...

Author Newsletters

I'll be the first to admit I am not an expert on author email newsletters. However, I believe they're important, and I try to be on top of mine every month. Today's blog post is about that. Normally I send out a newsletter to my email list each month on the 6th. Not...

Indie Authors & Literary Fiction

Back in July, I posted an interview with fellow indie author Jay Lemming.  Jay has a terrific ongoing project simply called “Survey: Indie Writers of Literary Fiction.” In his survey, he asks fellow lit fiction authors about one of their novels, and in particular,...
