Patreon Party Day 4

day-4

Today it’s time to talk about the podcast! I’ve had so much fun making Sheep Might Fly this year — the idea of committing to a weekly podcast without other people talking was pretty daunting, but what tipped me over the edge is that I have spent the last 11 years honing my reading skills, and this year my youngest started reading her own chapter books. What was I going to do with myself when no one in the house needs my funny voices, and my dramatic renditions of favourite stories? (Luckily she DOES still like me to read to her, but it’s only a matter of time before I get eye-rolling and rejection)

Writing Musketeer Space the way I did, a chapter a week, only served to cement my love for the serial, whether we’re talking about 1960’s Doctor Who, 1980’s comics, or the latest epic 40 chapter Winterhawk fanfic. I wanted to keep writing serials, but not every novel can be written one chapter a week.

Sheep Might Fly: Julia Agrippina Part 6

Flying Sheep Show NotesNew Sheep Might Fly episode update! Listen now on iTunes (or your own favourite podcast app). You can stream, download & follow Sheep Might Fly on Podbean.

This is the final episode of “Julia Agrippina’s Secret Family Bestiary” from my Twelve Planets collection Love and Romanpunk, a story suite about a universe where the Ancient Romans fought (and occasionally married) outlandish magical creatures, some of which survived to the present day and beyond. You can get a copy of the whole book over at the Twelfth Planet Press website.

“Agrippina” is a story about sex, death, domestic violence, emotional abuse, the erasure of women in history, and manticores. It features some surprising facts about Roman Emperors, only some of which are made up.

PART SIX: Werewolves
