My Week on Writestream


First, I wish I could figure out what’s causing the annoying static just about every time I broadcast. I’ve tried calling in on my iPhone and via Skype, and neither offers a clear connection. Tomorrow, we’re supposed to be getting a new faster internet service, so I am hoping that solves the issue.

Anyway, tonight Lisa and I hosted the fabulous Kristie Kennedy on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss, where we focused on more girly, fun things like skincare, hair care, make-up, and fashion. If you missed it, click below to listen.

This past Tuesday, I welcomed Diane Student and Denise Moormeier of History Goes Bump, a new SPOOKtacular blog and podcast that combines history with the paranormal. I had a blast talking haunted cars, houses, hotels and other places, along with urban legends like Bloody Mary and famous American writers like Edgar Allan Poe.

In other news, my latest post on American Journal examines the so-called Palin Brawl and CNN reporter Carol Costello’s giddy excitement over audio of a traumatized Bristol Palin’s report of the incident to police. To say I’m thoroughly disgusted by what passes for journalism these days would be an understatement. What a vile, sick culture we’re living in.

Professionally speaking, I’ve just send a proposal off to a potential client for a new ghostwriting project and await his decision. If we can come to an agreement, this will be a project I can definitely throw myself into! If you’re the praying kind, I’d sure appreciate them.

How has your week been so far? No matter what, keep in mind tomorrow is Friday and Mercury Retrograde ends this coming Saturday!


Writestream Tuesday: Speculative Fiction with S. Evan Townsend



Lisa and I were delighted when S. Evan Townsend’s new show, The Speculative Fiction Cantina, made its debut on the Writestream Radio Network on October 7. Who is S. Evan Townsend?

S. Evan Townsend has been called “America’s Unique Speculative Fiction Voice” and writes novels that cause thrills and rapid page-turning.  After spending four years in the U.S. Army in the Military Intelligence branch, he returned to civilian life and college to earn a B.S. in Forest Resources from the University of Washington. In his spare time he enjoys reading, driving (sometimes on a racetrack), meeting people, and talking with friends.  He is in a 12-step program for Starbucks addiction. Evan lives in central Washington State with his wife and has three grown sons.  He enjoys science fiction, fantasy, history, politics, cars, and travel.  He currently has five published fantasy and science fiction novels.

During the live show I’ll chat with the author about his background, books, and plans for The Speculative Fiction Cantina. What is speculative fiction? We’ll discover the answer to this question and countless others during the interview. You can listen live by clicking on this link to Writestream Tuesday with S. Evan Townsend at 1 p.m. Eastern on October 28 or by dialing (347) 945-7246. Got your own question for Evan? Hit “1” on your keypad to get into the queue, or join the conversation in the live chat room.


Then in the second hour, stay tuned for the Right Wing Riot with the Luminaries of Liberty – Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right, and The Prince of Whitebread. Will they read Pajama Boy a Halloween horror story instead of a fairy tale? Listen to the show on Tuesday to find out!



Writestream Tuesday: Down Syndrome Awareness and the Right Wing Riot – UPDATED

Did you know October is also Down Syndrome Awareness Month?


In honor of the occasion, I am hosting a very special Writestream Tuesday on October 14 at 1 p.m. Eastern. During the first hour I’ll talk about my wonderful brother Ralph and the amazing impact he’s had not just on my own life but the lives of countless others who have been blessed to know him. I also encourage listeners to call in with their personal stories of special folks in their lives with Down Syndrome at (347) 945-7246.

Back in the day: Ralph and me engaging in one of our favorite childhood rituals.

And because I am not one to shy away from controversy and hard realities, I’ll also discuss the depressing statistics with respect to Down Syndrome: 90% of unborn babies found to have Down Syndrome are aborted. That is a tragic, sobering fact – one I refuse to ignore. So while this will mainly be an uplifting show, I’d be remiss if I neglected to address it.


In the second hour, stay tuned for public service satire with the Right Wing Riot featuring the Luminaries of Liberty – Scary Smart, Ms. Always Right and The Prince of Whitebread.

UPDATE: Happy to announce that Tears of Paradox author Daniella Bova will be joining me in the first hour!



Writestream Seeks Wednesday Show and Host – UPDATED to SATURDAY

UPDATE: SEO Strategies with Snapperhead will be taking the Wednesday slot. We are now seeking a host and program that fits one of the descriptions below to air on Saturdays. Please contact me if interested.

Writestream’s Director of Marketing Lisa Tarves and I are sorry to announce the cancellation of Family Power Hour, due to personal reasons. We have thoroughly enjoyed the talents, expertise, and personalities of fabulous hosts Dr. Billie Eizenberg and Family Law Attorney Sheena Benjamin-Wise and will miss them. However, we completely understand their decision and wish them much success.


As part of our effort to transform Writestream into a full seven-day per week network, we are actively seeking a new host and program for the Wednesday time-slot, in ONE of these three areas:

  • A paranormal show with an exclusive focus on ghosts, hauntings & other supernatural occurrences (NO psychic readings as Lisa does them on Just Believe)
  • A motivational show hosted by a seasoned, professional life coach designed to help listeners reach their full potential
  • A health and fitness show covering nutrition, diet, exercise and healthy living

Hosts must be proven professionals in one of these subjects and have a big social media following, preferably on Facebook and Twitter.

Do you fit one of these descriptions or know someone who does? Please contact me here. Thanks, and keep rejoicing in the flow of creativity!

DVCCCContinuing our discussions of serious topics for women, Lisa and I welcome the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County, Pennsylvania on Love Liberty & Lip Gloss Thursday, October 9 at 7 p.m. Eastern:

Domestic Violence Statistics:

  • Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten.
  • At least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime.
  • Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
  • Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually.
  • Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm.
  • Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.
  • Between 55 and 95% of women who have been physically abused by their partners have never contacted non-governmental organizations, shelters, or the police for help.
