Writing Community Chat Show

By The Writing Community Chat Show
The Writing Community Chat Show is focused on helping authors grow and develop as well as give them the spotlight to explain their story and work. We connect indie authors with those who have been doing it professionally for decades. We try to give the best insight into the careers of professionals and hopefully that can give you the perfect tip to reach your own goals. This is done with two main shows a week. Indie Wednesdays Chris and Chris discuss indie writing issues before an indie author interview and Friday is a bit more fun followed by an interview with an established guest.

Arriving in the midst of a threatening storm, Elin immediately feels on edge.

And when they wake the following morning to discover his fiancée Laure has vanished without a trace, Elin’s unease grows. With the storm cutting off access to and from the hotel, the longer Laure stays missing, the more the remaining guests start to panic. But no-one has realized yet that another woman has gone missing.

THE STUNNING AND DEVASTATING LOVE STORY ABOUT HOPE, SACRIFICE AND THE CONNECTIONS THAT FOREVER BIND US 'A modern day Atonement meets David Nicholls. Beautifully written - I couldn't put it down' EMMA GANNON 'Like if One Day had been written by Sally Rooney' 5***** READER REVIEW 'An intricate story of love . . . A beautiful piece of writing' SUNDAY EXPRESS She could be the girl dancing on tables one night, and the next she'd be hiding in the shadows. Just when I thought I understood her, she would melt away and become a completely new person, and I'd have to start all over again. That's how it was with Anna. Nick and Anna work the same summer job at their local cinema. Anna is mysterious, beautiful, and from a very different world to Nick. She's grown up preparing for the end of days, in a tightly-controlled existence where Christmas, getting drunk and sex before marriage are all off-limits. So when Nick comes into her life, Anna falls passionately in love. Their shared world burns with poetry and music, cigarettes and conversation - hints of the people they hope to become. But Anna, on the cusp of adulthood, is afraid to give up everything she's ever believed in, and everyone she's ever loved. She walks away, and Nick doesn't stop her. Years later, a tragedy draws Anna back into Nick's life. But rekindling their relationship leaves Anna and Nick facing a terrible choice between a love that's endured decades, and the promises they've made to others along the way.

EMMA STONEX: THE LAMPLIGHTERS on The Writing Community Chat Show!
Emma Stonex was born in 1983 and grew up in Northamptonshire, about as far from the sea as it's possible to be in the UK. Her love affair with lighthouses and the coast began with childhood holidays to Cornwall and the Isle of Wight, which remain among her favorite places to visit. Before becoming a writer, Emma worked as an editor in publishing. Ahead of THE LAMPLIGHTERS, she wrote several books under pseudonyms, but saved her real name for the story that had always been in her heart: the real-life mystery of three lighthouse keepers who vanished from their rock light in 1900 and to this day have never been found. Her book THE LAMPLIGHTERS was released on March 4th and already sits with an impressive 228 reviews and a lot of praise as seen below. She lives in Bristol with her husband and two young daughters. As recommended by the BBC Radio 2 Book Club 'A mystery, a love story and a ghost story, all at once. Wonderful' - S J Watson 'Gripping' - Guardian 'Riveting' - Independent 'Excellent' - Observer 'A triumph' - Daily Mail. THE LAMPLIGHTERS: Cornwall, 1972. Three keepers vanish from a remote lighthouse, miles from the shore. The entrance door is locked from the inside. The clocks have stopped. The Principal Keeper’s weather log describes a mighty storm, but the skies have been clear all week. What happened to those three men, out on the tower? The heavy sea whispers their names. The tide shifts beneath the swell, drowning ghosts. Can their secrets ever be recovered from the waves? Twenty years later, the women they left behind are still struggling to move on. Helen, Jenny and Michelle should have been united by the tragedy, but instead it drove them apart. And then a writer approaches them. He wants to give them a chance to tell their side of the story. But only in confronting their darkest fears can the truth begin to surface . . . Inspired by real events, The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex is an intoxicating and suspenseful mystery, an unforgettable story of love and grief that explores the way our fears blur the line between the real and the imagined.

Someone has stolen the Grim Reaper's head and Blunt has been told to find it. In a new city where the rules of the living don't apply Blunt's up to his neck in the brown stuff  and he's never been much of a swimmer. With the aid of a woman who keeps turning involuntarily invisible, a journalist who hasn't written an article since she died, nd a bureaucrat who can't say no to anyone, Blunt's got to stop whoever is stealing the heads of the city's elite. As he begins his investigations he finds things aren't all they seem. Who are the Gloomwood Youth Order? What do you call the murder of someone already dead? Why are people having their heads chopped off? And what is in the hot dogs? With time slipping away he needs to learn what makes the city tick before there's no city left.

How to survive everything is Ewan Morrison's eight book. He is the author of the award-winning novels Close Your Eyes and Tales from the Mall, the novels Ménage, Distance and Swung and the short story collection The Last Book You Read. Ewan was awarded the Glenfiddich Writer of the Year Award and the SMIT novel of the year 2012/2013. (Amazon) How to survive everything: 'One of the most provocative, intelligent and original novelists working in Britain today.' Irvine Welsh My dad taught us to be prepared for whatever was coming. He said we should know the facts about how long we could survive without food, water or fresh air, and to remember that we couldn't live at all without hope. It was better, he said, to be ahead of the game. Better to be ten years too early than one minute too late. That’s why he did what he did, on that morning … Inspired by her father’s advance planning and her own ingenuity and courage, this is one teenage girl’s survival guide for navigating life under a new, even more deadly pandemic from the confines of a prepper compound. Will she ride out the collapse of everything she knows, and how can she save her family – and sanity?

JOHN NIVEN: THE FUCK IT LIST & The WCCS!
Author John Niven joins us for the Friday night chat show! John Niven graduated from Glasgow University with a first-class degree in English LIterature. He went on to spend ten years working in the music industry, during which time he worked with acts like Travis, Mogwai and Sigur Rós. His first book was a novella entitled Music from the Big Pink, pubilshed under the guise of Continuum's acclaimed 33⅓ series of classic album guides. This blended fact and fiction in its account of the creation of The Band's The Big Pink. His experiences as an A & R man, during which time he passed up the chance to sign both Coldplay and Muse, formed the basis of his first full-length fiction, Kill Your Friends, described by the Independent as 'a bleak, scabrous and over-the-top satire on the excesses of the Cool Britannia period of the 1990s'. His second novel, The Amateurs, moved into the world of golf, with its story of an amateur who qualifies for the Open. His third novel, The Second Coming, courts controversy with its depiction of Jesus as a hippy layabout, entrusted with keeping an eye on Earth while God takes a much needed holiday. Unimpressed with his son's stewardship, God returns him to Earth to encourage less elfish behaviour amongst his creations. Jesus decides to audition for reality TV show American Pop Star in order to spread the Word.

Accusing Mr Darcy author KELLY MILLER on Indie Wednesday!
Regency romance author KELLY MILLER joins us for the return of Indie Wednesday! We are pleased to go back to our roots and really focus on the authors of the Writing Community. We perhaps should be calling this writing community Wednesdays with the talent on show  from the community.  Kellys book Accusing Mr. Darcy: A Pride & Prejudice Variation has received much praise. "With characters that are charmingly entertaining, and a mystery to solve, Miller's ability to create a compelling page turner will have you hooked from beginning to end." Could Fitzwilliam Darcy harbour a shocking, sinister secret? Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet count themselves among the many guests of the Kendall family, whose estate lies amidst the picturesque hills, gorges, and rocky slopes of the Peak District in Derbyshire. Elizabeth’s cousin Rose Kendall believes her dashing brother-in-law, Captain James Kendall, is Elizabeth’s ideal match. Rose’s husband, Nicholas, hopes his good friend Darcy--a rich, proud, and taciturn gentleman with a spotless reputation--will fancy one of the other eligible lady guests. News of a brutal killing at a neighbouring estate sends a wave of shock through the genial group of friends and family. When one of the Kendalls’ guests is attacked, all of the gentlemen become suspects, but the former Bow Street runner tasked with investigating the crime finds the evidence against Mr. Darcy particularly compelling. In this romantic mystery, the beloved couple from Jane Austen’s "Pride & Prejudice" cross paths with a ruthless killer. When faced with dire warnings against Mr. Darcy, will Elizabeth heed them or follow the dictates of her heart?

After losing everything, she embarked on her greatest change project: herself. Changing her mindset and body, Carolyn has gone from self-loathing to self-love.   Today she works sharing what she learnt during that incredible transformation.

MATT GOODWIN: Cyberpunk saga, writing and brand new LEVI!
We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and New Year. We are super excited to kick off season 4 and we already have some incredible guests lined up for you. We appreciate all of your support! Matthew A. Goodwin has been writing about spaceships, dragons and adventures since he was twelve years old. His passion for fantasy began when he discovered a box set of the Hobbit radio drama on cassette tape in his school's library at the age of seven. He fell in love with fantasy worlds and soon discovered D&D and Warhammer miniatures. Not wanting to be limited by worlds designed by others, he created Thutopia (now called the Thuton Empire), a fantasy world of his own which he still writes about to this day. Like many kids with an affinity for fantasy, a love of science fiction soon followed. He loved sweeping space operas and gritty cyberpunk stories which asked questions about man's relationship to technology. That led him to write his first published work, Into Neon: A Cyberpunk Saga, which takes place in a larger science fiction universe. He has a passion for travel and wildlife and when he is not off trying to see the world, he lives in San Francisco with his wife and son.

SONGBIRD 2020: Aggetts film review on the WCCS.
So, SONGBIRD is not something I thought I wanted to watch during a time where a real Covid pandemic is ongoing... and now more threatening than ever. But, I feel that by me watching this, it might save you the pain. K.J. Apa, Sofia Carson, Demi Moore and Bradley Whitford appear in this Michael Bay-produced thriller about several people trying to survive during a COVID 19 Pandemic. Not the type we know, yet, and hopefully never will. But, we see a matured pandemic where immune civilians wander free in an American world dominated and controlled by a useless military presence and a rather nasty Dept. of Sanitation that is run by Peter Stormare and his goons. We follow a few stories that interlink at some point and to be honest a lot of them were rather predictable. I felt that in most situations I already knew the next move. We follow a courier on a desperate rescue mission who frantically zips around the city trying to find his girlfriend. Imagine James Bond but instead of being directed by Z, you have the Amazon delivery service, and instead of Bond, you have a delivery driver.  Despite the A-list producer and a few big names and familiar actors, the plot of this film was perhaps lacking in a lot of areas. It felt rushed, just so that it could be released during a real pandemic. Although, they perhaps had more time than they expected. You know, as its nearly 2021 and we are STILL talking about it! I am unsure of the message. Was it a message of hope? Was it a thriller? This film didn't really know. Anyway. I felt the same after seeing this film as I felt before it. Not wanting to hear a single God damn thing about Covid ever again. Im giving SONGBIRD 2020 a pretty terrible 3 zombie heads out of 10. Listen to the review here on our podcast. Or, watch it here on our youtube channel.  PLEASE SUBSCRIBE/FOLLOW BOTH!

CHRIS McDonald: Whispers in the dark and the WCCS! #079
Crime thriller author Chris McDonald becomes the third Chris on The Writing Community Chat Show tonight! It is another binge-worthy show from the WCCS and it's not to be missed.  His first book A wash of Black has been received very well. Read about it below. IT'S NOT LIFE THAT IMMITATES ART. IT'S DEATH. Anna Symons. Famous. Talented. Dead. When the body of a famous actress is found mutilated on an ice rink in Manchester, recreating a scene from a blockbuster film she starred in years ago, DI Erika Piper must find the culprit; the media-dubbed ‘Blood Ice Killer.’ Having recently returned to work after suffering a near fatal attack herself, she must once again prove her worth. When another body is found, and the killer issues a personal threat, Erika has to put her demons aside and crack the case, or suffer the deadly consequences. I read this in two days as I was so gripped by the storyline! A great twist at the end and cleverly explained. I will definitely recommend to people who like reading psychological thrillers. Lena never planned to be a soldier; her simple life as a fisherwoman was almost enough for her. But when the Emperor asks women to set aside generations of tradition and learn to fight, she accepts.

Kristen Bailey is BACK! The WCCS hosts Kristen as her book DID MY LOVE LIFE SHRINK IN THE WASH is released in January. It is a hilarious fun show and Kristen's brilliant personality shines through as expected. She is a fantastic author of romantic comedy and her Stella books should absolutely be read! When I got pregnant, Will and I didn’t have a clue what we were signing up for. It turns out that there’s loads we weren’t warned about: 1) In the middle of the night you’ll be begging Siri for advice on getting your baby to sleep. (In case you’re wondering, whale music doesn’t work.) 2) If you make the mistake of going to a nightclub you’ll nod off, drool, and be woken up by an angry bouncer. 3) You’ll spend more time spooning your child’s cuddly donkey than your own boyfriend. 4) Communication with your other half will be via post-it notes on the fridge, mainly telling him to buy more milk. 5) Sex is something that happened in another dimension. But even if I feel like I’m waiting for my motherhood powers to come in the post, at least I’ve got Will. Our old life – festivals, sambuca shots, an actual sex life – might be a distant memory, but we can get through anything together, can’t we? At least that’s what I thought until, one day, Will walked out on us… If I’m on my own (apart from Siri, obviously) can I do this whole parenting thing? Or I am destined to lose my sanity one sleepless night at a time?

IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON: Aggett's film review from the WCCS.
Today in Aggett's book club IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON gets the spotlight! In the shadow of the Moon is a 2020 Netflix movie directed by Jim Mickle and written by Gregory Weidman and Geoffrey Tock. This is the tag - A Philadelphia police officer struggles with a lifelong obsession to track down a mysterious serial killer whose crimes defy explanation. Immediately the trailer intrigued me with its darkened style and police chases and action. I have been longing for something to look and feel the outstanding Se7en for a long long time. This, I think, had slight similarities in style, at times. As I got into the film I began trying to figure out where I knew the characters from and it surprised me to realise that...  one of them was Dexter! ANNNND I have only watched one episode of it. Can I hear the booos through the medium of blog?! Perhaps. Anyway, the cast is well-fitting. Boyd Holbrook plays a Philly Police officer named Locke. I like this character. After a run-in with a strange and mysterious woman, post some very strange deaths! tragedy strikes his life. What unfoldes is the spiralling detective Locke dedicating his entire life (quite literally) in the search of this woman that only appears in a certain pattern. That woman is Cleopatra Coleman, she plays Rya. The mysterious one. It is a classically styled cop thriller in a damp and dark city until Locke begins to track down this woman while he neglects his family in the process. Then I can only describe him looking like Ron Burgandy when the news team was dispanded. Despite the way he gets to look throughout the film Boyd Holbrook played the lead character very well and this polished film left me wanting more. I do think that perhaps they could have made more out of the big twist... that I DIDNT SEE COMING! Which I won't mention any more of. To round up this scrappy review. I expected a gritty cop detective thriller, I got something slightly different and was pleasantly surprised. It is like digging into your winter jacket pocket to find something and accidentally finding some cash instead. #Win So this film pleased me despite its occasional slow-building moments. I give this movie 7 zombie heads out of 10! It is on our website blog that you can read here and see the trailer.

Halloween writing community writing prompt story! 666! #69
On Friday we hosted a WCCS Halloween party! It was very clear that we didn't get through the entire schedule. As normal it became something entirely different than we had planned. Laughter was certainly the theme of the night. If you haven't yet seen this show it is available to watch on our youtube channel and is our pinned tweet on Twitter. This episode is the story a few writing community members put together. We gave the task of two paragraphs each and an American diner the location with the theme being horror. This is the result and was played out in chapters on the show. It was also the last show of season 2. We are having a week break and then will return for more awesome action-packed shows and interviews on Wednesday 11th of November.

Now that Koli and his companions have found the source of the signal they've been following - the mysterious "Sword of Albion" - there is hope that their perilous journey will finally be worth something.

The Thin Place will stay with you long after you turn the final page.” –Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of After the End She has to know the truth about Overtoun Estate, but there is a reason it has stayed buried for so long.  When journalist Ava Brent decides to investigate the dark mystery of Overtoun Estate—a ‘thin place’, steeped in myth—she has no idea how dangerous this story will be for her.  Overtoun looms over the town, watching, waiting: the locals fearful of the strange building and the secrets it keeps. When Ava starts to ask questions, the warm welcome she first receives turns to a cold shoulder. And before she knows it, Ava is caught in the house’s grasp too.  After she discovers the history of a sick young girl who lived there, she starts to understand the sadness that shrouds it. But when she finds an ominous old message etched into a windowsill, she is forced to wonder—what horrors is the house protecting? And what will it cost her to find out?   With her own first child on the way, Ava knows she should stay away. But even as her life starts to unravel, and she receives chilling threats, the house and the bridge keep pulling her back…  This shows BEER TOKEN BOOK PROMOTION sponsor is Geoff Major @GradusPrimus and his book DEADLINE!

JASPER FFORDE: The constant Rabbit and the WCCS!
Jasper Fforde is an author of speculative fiction who lives and works in Wales. His next publication is 'The Constant Rabbit': UK, July 2020.  He chats with host Chris Hooley in tonight's Moonlight Sessions podcast episode about his author career and books Plus some great writing tips and writing inspiration for your ears!  Follow him on Twitter here @jasperfforde THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR 'The Constant Rabbit is Jasper Fforde's most chilling and realistic book yet' Guardian 'You won't read anything quite like this in 2020 - or beyond that too' CultureFly *** England, 2020. There are 1.2 million human-sized rabbits living in the UK. They can walk, talk and drive cars, the result of an Inexplicable Anthropomorphising Event fifty-five years ago. And a family of rabbits is about to move into Much Hemlock, a cosy little village where life revolves around summer fetes, jam-making, gossipy corner stores, and the oh-so-important Best Kept Village awards. No sooner have the rabbits arrived than the villagers decide they must depart. But Mrs Constance Rabbit is made of sterner stuff, and her family are behind her. Unusually, so are their neighbours, long-time residents Peter Knox and his daughter Pippa, who soon find that you can be a friend to rabbits or humans, but not both. With a blossoming romance, acute cultural differences, enforced rehoming to a MegaWarren in Wales, and the full power of the ruling United Kingdom Anti Rabbit Party against them, Peter and Pippa are about to question everything they'd ever thought about their friends, their nation, and their species. It'll take a rabbit to teach a human humanity . . .

A man recalling his nightmarish encounter with the devil. Letters sent from beyond the grave. A call from loved ones who since have passed. Limbs that have a mind of their own. These ghostly tales of revenge, greed, and desperation writhe and squirm in the dark corners of modern day Indonesia. Rich in cultural undertones that are uniquely Asian, these stories are in equal part grotesque and poetic, irreverent and spiritual, unusual and universal. Drawing on local folk tales of vengeful banshees, dusk-dwelling monsters, and other forms of the undead, this collection of five short stories will transport readers to the deep, dark abyss where demon forever resides: the human mind.

CHRISTOPHER MOORE: Shakespeare for Squirrels and the WCCS! #028
CHRISTOPHER MOORE is this weeks Moonlight Sessions guest! Christopher Moore is an American writer of absurdist fiction. He grew up in Mansfield, OH, and attended Ohio State University and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. Moore's novels typically involve conflicted every man characters suddenly struggling through supernatural or extraordinary circumstances. Inheriting a humanism from his love of John Steinbeck and a sense of the absurd from Kurt Vonnegut, Moore is a best-selling author with major cult status. (Goodreads extract) Christopher Moore is the author of 15 previous novels: Practical Demonkeeping, Coyote Blue, Bloodsucking Fiends, Island of the Sequined Love Nun, The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, A Dirty Job, You Suck, Fool, Bite Me, Sacré Bleu, The Serpent of Venice, and Secondhand Souls. He lives in San Francisco. Check out his latest book SHAKESPEARE FOR SQUIRRELS below. New York Times Bestseller! Shakespeare meets Dashiell Hammett in this wildly entertaining murder mystery from New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore—an uproarious, hardboiled take on the Bard’s most performed play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, featuring Pocket, the hero of Fool and The Serpent of Venice, along with his sidekick, Drool, and pet monkey, Jeff. Set adrift by his pirate crew, Pocket of Dog Snogging—last seen in The Serpent of Venice—washes up on the sun-bleached shores of Greece, where he hopes to dazzle the Duke with his comedic brilliance and become his trusted fool. But the island is in turmoil. Egeus, the Duke’s minister, is furious that his daughter Hermia is determined to marry Demetrius, instead of Lysander, the man he has chosen for her. The Duke decrees that if, by the time of the wedding, Hermia still refuses to marry Lysander, she shall be executed . . . or consigned to a nunnery. Pocket, being Pocket, cannot help but point out that this decree is complete bollocks, and that the Duke is an egregious weasel for having even suggested it. Irritated by the fool’s impudence, the Duke orders his death. With the Duke’s guards in pursuit, Pocket makes a daring escape. He soon stumbles into the wooded realm of the fairy king Oberon, who, as luck would have it, IS short a fool. His jester Robin Goodfellow—the mischievous sprite better known as Puck—was found dead. Murdered. Oberon makes Pocket an offer he can’t refuse: he will make Pocket his fool and have his death sentence lifted if Pocket finds out who killed Robin Goodfellow. But as anyone who is even vaguely aware of the Bard’s most performed play ever will know, nearly every character has a motive for wanting the mischievous sprite dead. With too many suspects and too little time, Pocket must work his own kind of magic to find the truth, save his neck, and ensure that all ends well. A rollicking tale of love, magic, madness, and murder, Shakespeare for Squirrels is a Midsummer Night’s noir—a wicked and brilliantly funny good time conjured by the singular imagination of Christopher Moore.

It appears to be a clear-cut case of terrorism. But as criminal barrister Michael Devlin is about to discover, everything is not as it seems. Also suspecting there are shady forces at work, intelligence agent Joe Dempsey is driven to investigate. Who would have wanted this potential new president out of the way – and who would commit mass murder to do it? All the way to the top of the US government, someone is determined to stop Dempsey and Devlin from discovering the truth. At any cost. **** 'An intricate, twisty minefield of geopolitics and absolute power gone rogue. Kent has outdone himself with this one.'
