Brad King of The Geeky Press hosts The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, where writers and authors discuss what drives them to tell stories. You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, subscribe on Google Play Music Podcastlisten on Stitcher, or listen (or download) on the web.

You can also sign up for my newsletter to keep up on the podcast, my writing projects, and generally cool literary shit.


When Sarah Layden stopped by the Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, she wasn’t expecting to explore how the themes from her childhood diaries played out in her fiction writing. But that happened. Before long, they were discussing how writers find their voice, and what it means to be authentic. The showed ended as they discussed the problem with “women’s literature” label, and the ways writers use empathy to tell universal stories. Oh, and don’t forget to buy Sarah’s debut novel, Trip Through You Wires (Engine Books, 2015). You can pre-order the novel today.

If you're interested in keeping up with my writing projects, I’ll overlook your bad judgement on that and instead say thank you. A writer's life blood is readers. Without you, I'm just a crazy guy sitting in his office furiously screaming on the page for no reason. So sign up for my mailing list, and download Frankenstein’s Legacy, my latest work published by CMU’s ETC Press.
