The 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!

The Brooklyn Book Festival Indie Spotlight Show!
Queer Indie and The Writing Community Chat Show are teaming up in an attempt to talk and showcase all things indie. As part of the #BrooklynBookFestival schedule, we will be discussing being an indie #author, the struggles, the wins, how to write diversity without offending and much more. This will be a live show. We welcome your live engagement and questions. The Brooklyn Book Festival: "Mission Statement: The mission of the Brooklyn Book Festival is to celebrate published literature and nurture a literary cultural community through programming that cultivates and connects readers of diverse ages and backgrounds with local, national and international authors, publishers and booksellers. To this end, the Brooklyn Book Festival develops original programming that is hip, smart, diverse, inclusive and collaborative and presents free and low-cost public events including the Brooklyn Book Festival, Children’s Day and Bookend events. The Brooklyn #Book Festival is New York City’s largest free literary festival and connects readers with local, national and international authors and publishers during the course of a celebratory literary week. The Festival presents original programming and enthusiastically welcomes New York City’s cross cultural book readers as well as national and international attendees. The Festival is known for fostering creative dialogue among the authors, presenting new literary voices as well as established authors, and for serving the literary community by providing a highly visible platform for the work of authors and publishers. The Brooklyn Book Festival was launched in 2006 as a one-day event to address the need for a free, major literary event that embraced the diverse constituencies of New York City. It has since grown to include 8 days of city-wide Bookend events, its flagship Festival Day with 300 authors and a Literary Marketplace with 250 independent and major publishers, and the BKBF Children’s Day that celebrates childhood reading.

BELINDA KIRK, explorer, author & speaker on The WCCS
"In 2009 I set out to start an adventure revolution. I’m still working on it but now an idea has become a movement and its changing the world" — BelindaKirk Belinda has spent 24 years leading groups into the wilderness all over the world.  These include numerous personal #expeditions,  youth development expeditions, biological research missions and remote filming trips for the BBC.  Today she is a motivational Speaker, Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and Campaigner encouraging others to live adventurously. She has now written a #book that was released in August. That book is  #AdventureRevolution: The life-changing power of choosing challenge: For the past twenty-five years, Belinda Kirk's professional life has revolved around adventure. She's seen it change people first hand: turning the timid into the confident, the addicted into the recovering, and the lost into the intentionally wandering. As a force for change, adventure can be powerful like few others. This #book is about this transformational power, and the first to explore why adventure is essential to our #wellbeing. From managing #anxiety and overcoming #fear, to finding self-worth and building interpersonal connections, to being happier, healthier, and more playful, ADVENTURE REVOLUTION draws lessons from more than two decades of experience leading groups into the wilderness around the globe. Illuminated with Belinda's personal narrative, her own research with modern hunter-gatherers, and the latest findings in neuroscience and behavior, ADVENTURE REVOLUTION presents a compelling case for ditching the living room in favour of a longer, happier, and more adventurous life.

A Teacher's Life with RYAN WILSON!
RYAN WILSON spent a decade teaching English after attending university and then completed a post-graduate teaching qualification. He taught in schools in Essex and London and made it to assistant headteacher. He then studied for a master's in Broadcast Journalism. He worked on Good Morning Britain and ITV News and spent the night in a leisure center in Wakefield for ITV on election night in 2017. One of his more bizarre experiences was working undercover for Deliveroo, wearing a hidden camera, to investigate how they treat their workers!  LET THAT BE A LESSON 'A frank, funny and long overdue ode to teachers and teaching' Adam Kay: The malodorous horrors of Sports Day. Bracing yourself for Parents' Evening. Refereeing teenage relationship dramas. This is not what you see in the adverts. From the age of eight, Ryan Wilson dreamt of being a teacher. This is the inside story of his time at the chalkface, from fresh-faced trainee with grand ideals to exhausted assistant head battling ever-changing government demands. It is a tribute to the colleagues who befriended him and to the chaotic, brilliant, maddening students who inspired and enraged him. From Sean, the wannabe gangster with a soft heart, to David, the king of innuendo, and terrifyingly clever Amelia. And, above all, it's about the lessons they taught him: how to be patient and resilient, how to live authentically and how to value every day. 'Hilarious, inspiring and so terrifyingly true' Lucy Kellaway 'A delightfully frank and funny book -- with a very serious message' Jacqueline Wilson 'Not just funny and constantly surprising -- but touching, poignant and personal too' Jeremy Vine FOLLOW THE SHOW! ► Our website - https://www.thewritingcommunitychatshow.com ► Universal link - https://linktr.ee/TheWCCS ► Use hashtag #TheWritingCommunityChatShow or #TheWCCS on social media to keep us current.

The twist As the train pulls into a station, Ellen is stunned to see the woman step off the train and rush away down the platform, leaving her baby behind.

Nineteen years earlier, the Empress outplayed Cillian in diplomacy and intrigue. Alone, his only living daughter has little chance to counter the Empress's experience and skill. Aging and torn by grief and worry, Cillian insists on accompanying Gwenna to Casil. Risking a charge of treason, faced with a choice he does not want to make, Cillian must convince Gwenna her future is more important than his – while Gwenna plans her moves to keep her father safe.

Mark Billingham & The Rabbit Hole, on The WCCS!
Rabbit Hole: The new masterpiece from the Sunday Times number one bestseller. The last interview of season 6 lands on Mark Billingham. We were luckily enough to be in his presence at The Harrogate Crime Writers Festival. Unfortunately, for me, I was blissfully aware that I was stood 2 foot away from him near the bar and was too busy chatting! Well now I have my chance. I will have the time to dig into Marks writing career and his inspirations. You can join us LIVE on YouTube and you too can ask questions! Mark Billingham is one of the UK's most acclaimed and popular crime writers. A former actor, television writer and stand-up comedian, his series of novels featuring D.I.

Each of his novels has been a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller. A television series based on the Thorne novels was screened in Autumn 2010, starring David Morrissey as Tom Thorne and a BBC series based on the standalone thrillers IN THE DARK and TIME OF DEATH was shown in 2017.

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.

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 . . .

Laura Kay: Author of The Split on The Writing Community Chat Show.
LAURA KAY is joining us to talk about her debut book THE SPLIT. "My debut novel The Split is a queer rom-com set in Sheffield. When Ally is brutally dumped by her girlfriend, she finds herself homeless, friendless and jobless... but at least she has Malcolm. Wounded and betrayed, Ally has made off with the one thing she thinks might soothe the pain: Emily's cat. In a nutshell this novel features lesbian angst, cake and a horrible cat - all the good stuff! Oh and love, heartache, friendship and family too. I have had so much fun writing this novel and making these characters come to life. I really hope you love it and them as much as I do."

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.
