The podcast mentions that the audiobook download version of Bone Machines is $1.99 – sorry, but that offer has now been closed. However, the new price, still discounted, is $14.96.
In the interview, show host, Timothy C. Ward, and I talk about the craft of writing. We cover a range of topics, including:
- How to ensure your dialect is accurate when writing in a non-native culture
- What idioms can we use when making up worlds and civilizations?
- “The rhythm of the language is more important than the words that you use.”
- How religion affected early censorship as well as in modern books, but also the surprising openness to sex that non-religious people react to.
A big thanks to Tim for the interview. Though, to be fair, I thought I was online to interview Kay Kenyon, but Tim snagged some of our informal chat beforehand to put into the podcast. You’re so sneaky, Tim!
