The Grim Tidings Podcast Your podcast for all things Grimdark and more!

We’re back with another exciting edition of Author Thunderdome! In one corner representing the US-of-A, it’s multi-genre author, blogger, and reviewer C.T. Phipps, known for such titles as Cthulhu Armageddon, Lucifer’s Star, The Rules of Supervillainy, and Straight Outta Fangton (not to mention a sweet elbow-drop from the top rope). His opponent, hailing from the U.K. and wearing the (rather snug) Union Jack singlet, it’s Rob J. Hayes, author of multiple fantasy series’ including The Ties That Bind, It Takes a Thief, and Best Laid Plans. Join us as these two publishing heavyweights settle the score and duke it out in a bone-crushing literary battle of wits! Who will find glory in the Author Thunderdome? Find C.T. Phipps online at CTPhipps.wordpress.com, and Rob J. Hayes at RobJHayes.co.uk!

Belfast author Jo Zebedee drops by The Writer's Pit to talk about her grimdark space opera series ABENDAU'S HEIR and scifi invasion novel INISH CARRAIG. We talk a wee bit about hybrid publishing, how she knocked The Force Awakens off the Amazon top seller list in the UK, how to make the most of BookBub, finding your marketing platform as an author, starting as an author at the age of 40, implementing your local surroundings into your story, incorporating dialects into your dialogue, extrapolating dialogue from plays, finding support in the different aspects of indie publishing, Irish curse words, and more!
