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!

Closed For Maintenance: Me

Here comes the upfront apology for blog subscribers: I got nothing this week. It's not that I've got nothing to say. As anyone who knows me is well aware, I never, ever run out of things to say. Even my lovely wife has occasionally let me know, in relatively gentle...

New “Writer Problems” Series, Topic #10: Maintaining Some Semblance of Sanity

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train. —Ozzy Osbourne, "Crazy Train"   Last October, I posted an article on pandemic fatigue, about how 2020 had been exhausting. Ha ha ha! The pandemic was only seven or eight months old by then! Who’da thunk it? I must be some...

From The Shadow Side to the Syzygy

Anima rising, Queen of queens Wash my guilt of Eden Wash and balance me - Joni Mitchell, Don’t Interrupt the Sorrow   I’ve always enjoyed learning new words—or, as is more likely at my age, relearning words I’ve forgotten—so I was pleased to put syzygy in the...

Technophobia: A Writer’s Confession

To today's computer-savvy readers, "technophobia" might sound like a quaint leftover from the 20th century. You remember, right? Back in the 1980s, guys like me wrote poems of dismay about the invasion of technology into the arts. I still remember the words I penned...

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...

Platform-Building for Authors

A while back, I wrote a LinkedIn article on platform-building for authors, a frequent topic for my speaking gigs and for online posts in general. Today I thought I'd revisit some of that for the blog, discussing how speaking can help an author. Building a platform...

Adventures In Southeast Asia

“A writer never has a vacation. For a writer, life consists of either writing or thinking about writing.” ― Eugene Ionesco I first began visiting Southeast Asia over twenty years ago, so it probably comes as a surprise to readers that I haven't written about my...

How Do You Write About Sex—Seriously, Irreverently, or Not At All?

“Writing about sex is like engaging in sex: it’s hard. Or, it should be.” —Sean Murphy   Today I want to talk about fictional scenes where characters either discuss sex or engage in sexual activity. I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit, because I’m working...

The Best Thing I’ve Ever Done

I wrote most of Miles of Files between 2007 and 2015. I felt my first novel had been an artistic success, but I wasn't so sure about the second one. Now, I'd moved on to this third novel without having found a publisher for either of the first two. And it was totally...

Leaving the Litfic Category Behind?

Today’s blog is NOT an advertisement for products or services I offer. However, I do want to extend an invitation to join my email newsletter list to get content that’s (mostly) not available elsewhere.One thing about the author life that never fails to entertain is...
