Max Brooks, World War Z, Devolution and The WCCS!
Host Chris Aggett has a favorite book, a book that inspired his own book series. That book is World War Z. The author of that book is Max Brooks. Max is an American actor and NYT best selling author, son of the legendary Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft! Max has written World War Z, The Zombie Survival Guide, Minecraft novels and most recently, Devolution. A book that has been called 'TRUE TERROR' by the Guardian and 'NAIL CHOMPING SUSPENSE' by Total Film. In this episode, we talked about the sacrifices Max's mother, Anne, made during her successful career to help Max with his dyslexia. Which on those days was considerably less researched and understood. Max talks about his physical research for Devolution; making weapons and growing food in a garage! This episode is a highlight for host Chris, being released on his birthday to begin season 8!

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bar, with Izabella May.
Isabella May is the author of 10 novels. Her curiosity and love of international food and travel influenced them. Both of which feature extensively in her cross-genre novels, fused with a dollop of #romcom, and a sprinkle of magical realism. We will look at how her start in children's publishing lead to her #writing these much loved novels. And why writing with a #Christmas theme seemed the right thing to do. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bar was released in September of this year and has been called a delicious laugh-out-loud, feel-good romantic comedy - perfect for the holidays... Blurb: River and Alice miss Somerset. Christmas isn’t Christmas without family and friends, even when you live in quaint Cornwall. When River’s aunt Sheba dies unexpectedly, leaving him her ancient VW camper van, nostalgia nudges him and Alice back to Glastonbury - and the surrounding villages - to rediscover their roots whilst serving the most decadent hot chocolate and delectable gingerbread from their renovated ‘bar on wheels’. A bar on wheels complete with a fold-up stage to host local talent competitions rivaling anything Simon Cowell could dream up, even if he’d gorged on a truckle of Cheddar cheese! As the villagers sip their cocoa and ice their gingerbread houses amidst the festive backdrop of song, dance, and slightly more unconventional talents, River and Alice find themselves in an unexpected race against time: Zara, their chocolate supplier is leaving Glastonbury on the twelfth day of Christmas, keen to put a string of disastrous relationships behind her to make a fresh start. Bruno, their gregarious and gorgeous baking supplier is secretly smitten with Zara - ticking every box on her New Year’s wish list.If only they can get them together for one experimental kiss under the mistletoe... They’ve even enlisted their customers’ help in their mission to wrap this budding romance up in all the jingle bells and whistles. How hard can it be? So, ho, ho VERY tricky, as it turns out...

The WCCS Book launch with BL Cagle.
This is the first ever WCCS book launch show. This new format allows indie authors to promote their books on or around launch day. Brandy's book, Dreams of Darkness and Desire, has already had many brilliant beta reader reviews and there is demand for book 2 pre release of book 1! This is very promising. As is Dreams of Darkness being compared to the smash hit Inception! Read the blur below and pick up her book today! The WCCS, TOGETHER AS ONE, WE GET IT DONE!  Dreams of Darkness and Desire: Kira Lockwood has moved in with her best friend, developed a loving relationship with her boyfriend, and is excelling in her dance classes. Everything was perfect until she is suddenly plagued by unusual dreams and nightmares. And to make things more complicated, the man who haunts those very dreams has just moved in down the street. Their attraction is undeniable, but she struggles to understand why he torments her at night while she sleeps. Her dreams are erotic, shifting from seduction to drowning, burial, and abduction in the span of seconds. But dreams aren’t real…or are they? Blake Michaelson is a handsome and powerful centuries-old warlock. He and his three brothers have moved to New Orleans in search of one thing - Kira Lockwood. Though she does not know it, she is a descendent of the first Supra Virtutem, a witch with the ability to harness the ultimate power. He and his brothers have spent a lifetime, hunting others like them, and claiming their magic as their own. To ensure their immortality, Blake must complete the Order of Three: claim her body, take her blood, and end her life. Kira will not ascend and harness her power until her 21st birthday but her magic lives within her and her light recognizes the darkness. Will the power within her be enough to save her? Or will Blake complete his mission and steal her power before she steals his heart?

Author, film reviewer & blog editor Matt Adcock joins Chris on The WCCS!
You may know Matt Adcock from Twitter handle @Cleric20, a nod to his best selling #cybernoir thriller. If not, Matt is a great writing community member who is supportive of others and really leads the way when it comes to #bookmarketing and #booksales. Complete Darkness became an Amazon best-seller under Christian Futuristic Fiction and he continues to show great examples of how to make a story more than a book! We all could learn a lot from this interview. Complete Darkness: For centuries many have pondered the prospect of an afterlife and feared what came to be known as ‘hell’. In the near future, we map the elusive ‘dark matter’ around us, only to find out that it is hell itself, and it is very real… As the satanic President Razour attempts to bring forward Armageddon to prevent humanity repenting, the fate of us all rests in the hands of Cleric20, a hedonistic loner with a chequered past, and his robot sidekick, GiX. An action-packed literary shock to the senses that mixes flights of comic fantasy with bouts of brutal violence. Mankind’s only hope seems to be having a very bad day. Can Cleric20 halt Razour’s devilish plans after an experimental bioweapon deployed to kill him accidentally gives him superpowers? Has the Devil inadvertently created a hero who could actually stop him? Little can prepare you for this spiritually-charged, cyber-noir thrill ride.

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.

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.

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?
