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. Plus, we have now introduced The WCCS Panel Show! Two teams of 3 pitted against each other in a battle of whits and impressions!

Nadine Matheson, The Jigsaw Man on The WCCS!
Nadine Matheson joins us on the show to talk about her book The Jigsaw Man, writing and probably our warp speed interview from the Harrogate Crime Writers Festival! We had a great laugh at the Harrogate fest and we expect a similar vibe in this interview. Nadine is a crime writer from the UK and has no doubt lent on her experience as a criminal solicitor. In 2016, she won the City University Crime Writing Competition and completed the Creative Writing (Crime/Thriller Novels) MA at City University of London with Distinction in 2018. The Jigsaw Man: There's a serial killer on the loose. When bodies start washing up along the banks of the River Thames, DI Henley fears it is the work of Peter Olivier, the notorious Jigsaw Killer. But it can’t be him; Olivier is already behind bars, and Henley was the one who put him there. The race is on before more bodies are found. She’d hoped she’d never have to see his face again, but Henley knows Olivier might be the best chance they have at stopping the copycat killer. But when Olivier learns of the new murders, helping Henley is the last thing on his mind . . . Will it take a killer to catch the killer? Now all bets are off, and the race is on to catch the killer before the body count rises. But who will get there first – Henley, or the Jigsaw Killer?

Joseph McNiff has lived a life unlike any other. Being half Irish and half Blackfoot is not easy for a young man in the old west. He has a place in both the white man's world and the native tribe, but he's never really fit into either. It's even more complicated as he is really a woman and trying to keep the town safe as it's sheriff. The last thing Joe needs is to make his life any harder than it already is. When a beautiful woman with a mysterious past comes into his life, Joe finds himself opening his home and quite possibly his heart to the newcomer. But he also has to tread carefully, making sure that he doesn't reveal too much and risk putting himself in danger. Cassandra Gibson has lived a very sheltered life. Growing up with her abusive father, she was sure the only way she would ever get out of his house would be if she married or when he died. After a really bad morning, Cassie finds herself running away from the only life she's ever known hoping to find a town where she can start fresh. She remembers a town her father once spoke about, to the north. A town with no church and no sense, according to him. It sounds perfect. Blackpoint is a town full of people just trying to live their lives in the best way possible. Many people have settled there and succeeded in finding peace. Hopefully, Joe and Cassie will be able to as well.

ELLEN ALPSTEN: The Tsarina's Daughter on The WCCS!
Ellen's book, The Tsarina's Daughter has been highly praised: "Astonishing...the ultimate Cinderella story [that] makes Game of Thrones look like a nursery rhyme." --Daisy Goodwin, bestselling author of The Fortune Hunter The Blurb: When they took everything from her, they didn't count on her fighting to get it back... Born into the House of Romanov to the all-powerful Peter the Great and Catherine I, beautiful Tsarevna Elizabeth is the world's loveliest Princess and the envy of the Russian empire. Insulated by luxury and as a woman free from the burden of statecraft, Elizabeth is seemingly born to pursue her passions. However, a dark prophecy predicts her fate as inexorably twined with Russia. When her mother dies, Russia is torn, masks fall, and friends become foes. Elizabeth's idyllic world is upended. By her twenties she is penniless and powerless, living under constant threat. As times change like quicksand, an all-consuming passion emboldens Elizabeth: she must decide whether to take up her role as Russia's ruler, and what she's willing to do for her country – and for love.

M.W.CRAVEN: The Washington Poe/Avison Fluke series on The WCCS!
We were joined by M.W.Craven! He is the author of The Washington Poe series and THE AVISON FLUKE SERIES The Avison Fluke series. His latest book Dead Ground was the fourth in the The Washington Poe series and was a Sunday Times Best Seller. 'Heart-pounding, hilarious, sharp and shocking, Dead Ground is further proof that M.W. Craven never disappoints. Miss this series at your peril.' Chris Whitaker. DEAD GROUND: Detective Sergeant Washington Poe is in court, fighting eviction from his beloved and isolated croft, when he is summoned to a backstreet brothel in Carlisle where a man has been beaten to death with a baseball bat. Poe is confused - he hunts serial killers and this appears to be a straightforward murder-by-pimp - but his attendance was requested personally, by the kind of people who prefer to remain in the shadows. As Poe and the socially awkward programmer Tilly Bradshaw delve deeper into the case, they are faced with seemingly unanswerable questions: despite being heavily vetted for a high-profile job, why does nothing in the victim's background check out? Why was a small ornament left at the murder scene - and why did someone on the investigation team steal it? And what is the connection to a flawlessly executed bank heist three years earlier, a heist where nothing was taken . . .

ADELE PARKS: Both of You on The Writing Community Chat Show.
Adele Parks needs no introduction. BUT, incase you live under a rock and don't know, Adele is a multi million bestselling author. She is described as one of the most-loved and biggest-selling women’s fiction writers in the UK. 4 million copies of her UK editions have been sold and have been translated into more than 30 different languages. Titles include Lies Lies Lies, Just My Luck and Both of You (Which is out this week!) Leigh Fletcher: happily married stepmum to two gorgeous boys goes missing on Monday. Her husband Mark says he knows nothing of her whereabouts. She simply went to work and just never came home. Their family is shattered. Kai Janssen: married to wealthy Dutch businessman, Daan, vanishes the same week. Kai left their luxurious penthouse and glamorous world without a backward glance. She seemingly evaporated into thin air. Daan is distraught.      DC Clements knows that people disappear all the time – far too frequently. Most run away from things, some run towards, others are taken but find their way back. A sad few never return. These two women are from very different worlds, their disappearances are unlikely to be connected. And yet, at a gut level, the DC believes they might be. How could these women walk away from their families, husbands and homes willingly? Clements is determined to unearth the truth, no matter how shocking and devastating it may be.

ANNA BAILEY: Tall Bones on The Writing Community Chat Show.
We are joined by author Anna Bailey. Her debut book TALL BONES has received huge praise.  A GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE MONTH  'A wonderfully haunting debut.' JANE HARPER, author of The Dry 'Irresistible, a compelling and nuanced psychological thriller.' PAULA HAWKINS, author of The Girl on the Train. When seventeen-year-old Emma leaves her best friend Abi at a party in the woods, she believes, like most girls her age, that their lives are just beginning. Many things will happen that night, but Emma will never see her friend again.  Abi's disappearance cracks open the facade of the small town of Whistling Ridge, its intimate history of long-held grudges and resentment. Even within Abi's family, there are questions to be asked - of Noah, the older brother whom Abi betrayed, of Jude, the shining younger sibling who hides his battle scars, of Dolly, her mother and Samuel, her father - both in thrall to the fire and brimstone preacher who holds the entire town in his grasp. Then there is Rat, the outsider, whose presence in the town both unsettles and excites those around him.  Anything could happen in Whistling Ridge, this tinder box of small-town rage, and all it will take is just one spark - the truth of what really happened that night out at the Tall Bones....

From Voiceless To Vocal is a heartbreaking memoir about finding one's inner strength. A story of resilience and courage, this personal account takes us on a journey of survival. As told through the writer's first-hand experience, we see her learn about herself as she tries her best to stay alive, conquer the abuse and manipulation inflicted upon her, and overcome her own demons in the process. Her story proves that it is possible to get back up when you've been knocked down time and time again and stands as evidence that it is possible to find your voice after it has been stripped away.

Available as eBook and paperback. "Where There is Movement is raw, punchy, and memorable." Too edged-out for the citizens of little Corvallis, Oregon, Evan Knapp writes a note to change his life. “I won’t be home for dinner.” And he is gone, teenager, aspiring dancer and now runaway. He is bound for the ballet world of Portland with $15 dollars, nowhere to sleep and a support system of exactly him. On the fringes of Portland society, he finds a grungy flop house and seeks out the studios where he can practice his art. By day and evening, a prodigy dance student and lauded performer, by midnight a careening partaker of Portland’s deep underground scene, Evan flings himself head-first toward ballet luminescence or back alley extinction. Peopled with mods and Wave-os, prostitutes and punks, the beautiful broken and happy, squatting bohemians, Evan negotiates roiling seas of counter-culture culture and mainstream art world success. A career expanding and a psyche imploding, he stalks his missing pieces with grace and fury. Told with bare-naked truth and startling humor unique, Evan Knapp’s real-life descent into the darkest corners of the 1980s resounds far beyond the last page. *A short-form bildungsroman memoir. LGBTQIA author, a few explicit scenes.

KATIE ALLEN: Everything happens for a reason on The WCCS!
Everything Happens for a Reason is Katie Allen's first novel. She used to be a reporter and columnist at the Guardian and Observer, and started her career as a Reuters correspondent in Berlin and London. The events in Everything Happens for a Reason are fiction, but the premise is loosely autobiographical. Katie's son, Finn, was stillborn in 2010, and her grief and the experience of being on maternity leave without a baby inspired her main character. And yes, someone did say to her "Everything happens for a reason". It didn't propel her to borrow a sausage dog, but it was probably the kernel of this novel. Katie grew up in Warwickshire and now lives in South London with her husband, children, dog, cat and stick insects. When she's not writing or walking children and dogs, she loves baking, watching comedies, reading news and wishing she had written other people's brilliant novels. She also loves quiz shows and forcing friends to do quizzes and she wastes hours meandering on the web - but she put that to some use by appearing on the TV show Pointless with her brother Nick.

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?

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.

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?

Carolyn’s successful career in the boardrooms of some of the World’s largest employers helped her hide a secret: she had zero self-worth.   And her personal life was a disaster.   Professionally, she was an expert in change management. Personally, she wasn’t managing to change. When life decided it’d had enough of her ignoring the warning signs, it taught Carolyn a lesson she couldn’t ignore. 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. (Extract from https://www.carolynhobdey.com/) Visit here. Her book All the TWATS I met along the way: A story of growing up, moving on, falling down and getting back up again. Was released on December the 15th and two more books are soon to be released! Our BEER TOKEN BOOK PROMOTION sponsor for this show Is Alan McGill.

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.

Please SUPPORT THE AUTHORS THAT SUPPORT THIS SHOW AND CHECK OUT HIS WORK! We thank you all for your support!
