The Writestream with Kimberly McGath and Daniella Bova – Archive

This past Wednesday, I interviewed Kimberly McGath in the first hour of the show to discuss the importance of cover design in book marketing, particularly for indie authors. Kim, a multi-talented retired police detective, cold case consultant, author, singer and book cover designer, has created a several fabulous covers for Writestream Publishing clients, including the one below.

Before we began our discussion on cover design, Kim made an exciting announcement about a contract for a new TV program on true crime – which means this was her last interview. Thankfully, she’ll continue to co-host Partners In Crime on Writestream Radio Network, with her co-host and bestselling author Sue Coletta.

I appreciated Kim taking the time to delve into the various aspects of creating a compelling book cover, one that will make readers take notice. We also delved into the elements that comprise an effective back cover, including a succinct book description. To discover more about Kim, visit www.kimberlymcgath.com.

In the second half of the show, author Daniella Bova joined me to discuss the third and final book in her excellent series, Storms of Transformation, Cadáin’s Watch. Check out the book trailer below:

Michelle and Jason escaped the wreckage of their beloved hometown and are determined to live free. Though they are hunted by the totalitarian bureaucracy, they vow to resist oppression no matter the cost. But insidious evil still threatens. Once proud Americans are hopeless and unwilling to fight, making it that much harder for the rebels in their quest for Liberty. And so, God intervenes, and the angel-warrior Cadáin is sent to watch over those whose spirits are unbroken.

The Formula with Jefferson Keith Langley, Episode 4

The Formula with Jefferson Keith Langley, Episode 4

When you’re a host on internet radio, you learn to improvise when a scheduled guest goes missing or announces at the last minute that they need to reschedule. Such was the case the other day when it was Jefferson Keith Langley’s turn to host on Writestream Radio Network.

If you don’t know him, here’s an excerpt from his bio on Writestream Radio.com:

Jefferson Keith Langley always had the winning mindset from a young age when he excelled in sports all the way to semi-pro status. Moving to Los Angeles from Texas at 19, he began his twenty-year career in entertainment, TV and media working as an assistant for numerous top people and companies on such projects as Gatorade; Smashing Pumpkins; Orbit Gum; Coors Light; Dave Mathews Band; Quentin Tarantino’s A Band Apart; Propaganda; Sony Pictures; Kaye Films; Emmy-award- winning director/TV showrunner Paris Barclay; Wayne Isham; Nigel Dick; Kinka Usher; Silver Pictures; and recognizable films like Starship Troopers, Tales From the Crypt and NBC/Universal series The Chang Family Saves the World for Misher Films just to name a few.

He co-founded a boutique production and finance company with an investor from Silicon Valley where he was President of Development and Production for over two years handling day to day operations, business affairs strategies to diversify the company portfolio, optioning material, negotiating deals, leading writer meetings, while managing, developing and raising funds for the slate of projects. He has been hired by film financiers to consult and write materials for fantasy thrillers and comedies as well.

This led to Jefferson expanding his spectrum and becoming a top adviser/consultant across all industries. His clients consist of financiers, producers, venture capitalists, creative types, pop singers, actors, oil and gas execs, sport athletes, jewelry designers, celebrities, entrepreneurs, global brands, top political aides, former intelligence officers, and many more. His unique, cutting-edge, one-of-a-kind techniques and innovative applications continue to garner rave reviews from his colleagues and clients through their referrals and recommendations. Jefferson’s knack for seeing to the core of things, coming up with innovative solutions, and providing guidance and execution all the way through to reaching the finish line garnered him the personal title, “THE HUMAN ARCHITECT.”

Since I produce his show The Formula, which airs every fourth Tuesday of the month on Writestream Radio, I decided to turn the tables and interview him. We spent an interesting, informative 90 minutes discussing his “blueprint” philosophy for individuals, which he incorporates into his one-on-one coaching sessions with entrepreneurs.

Do you love true crime stories? Crime fiction? Are you an author of a crime fiction novel with murder in your plot? You’ll definitely want to tune in to Partners in Crime on the Writestream Radio Network, the third Tuesday of every month. During the first hour, Kimberly and Sue will discuss true crime; in the second hour, they’ll talk about crime fiction. They’ll even answer writers’ questions, just like they do on their Twitter chat, #ACrimeChat. You can participate in #ACrimeChat on Twitter every other Wednesday at 3 PM Eastern.

Award-winning crime fiction author Sue Coletta.

Partners in Crime debuts on Writestream Radio Network on Tuesday, October 18 at 1 PM Eastern. Stay tuned for details.

Listeners of my show will recognize Kimberly’s name from her two appearances. On September 20, she joined me to discuss her latest book, Let Them See.  On April 19, we talked about Zodiac: Settling the Score. When I decided to seek out guest hosts to add some diversity of topics to the network, I naturally thought of Kimberly. We didn’t have a show show dedicated to true crime and crime fiction; therefore I wanted to correct that ASAP. With her engaging personality, and extensive experience and knowledge, Kimberly was the obvious choice. I’m delighted that with the addition of Partners in Crime, not only do we get Kimberly as a host, but also the acclaimed author Sue Coletta. We’re excited about serving a new audience and expanding our listener base.
