The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 62 – Killing Your Darlings

Killing Me Softly. Killing Is My Business. Killing Time. 

Nope. Sorry.

Killing Your Darlings. As in your characters. 

The Mando Method co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda talk about their own experiences in the deaths of characters as well as what they’ve read from other authors as well as TV and movie deaths. 

Killing Joke. Killing Spree. Killing Floor. Killing With Kindness.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 61 – Beta Readers

Beta Readers.

The first defense against a bad story for authors. Helpful readers going through your work before the public can sink their teeth into your book and point out every typo, run-on sentence, stupid plot hole and general nonsense.

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda give their own takes on using beta readers and a bunch of nonsense as well.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 60 – NaNoWriMo 2017

NaNoWriMo. 

National Novel Writing Month. 

Or as Chuck likes to call it The Buda Writing Killer. 

Last year The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda were involved with mixed results. 

This year Armand has decided to be a late addition to the November-long event. Will Chuck cave in and join, too?

Wait… is that the sultry voice of Erin Al-Mehairi we hear with a new Marketing Morsels segment this week, too?

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 56 – Surveying Readers

Surveying Readers.

As authors we sometimes forget what the actual readers are interested in reading next. Do we take the time to ask them?

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda ask one another the question, which is probably not the same thing but it leads to discussion and shenanigans ensue as usual. 

Maybe even a Seinfeld reference, too.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 55 – Pirating

Aarrggh! Show me the booty.

Pirating. 

In this case, The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda aren’t chatting about buccaneer movies and books, but about the stealing of movies and books.

At some point in a career, no matter how big or small, an author will have his books pirated. Readers will cut corners and try to find free copies of your books online. People with little moral fiber will steal from innocent people.

The Dynamic Mando Duo get excited, angry, hungry and sad about pirating this episode.
