The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 67 – Conventions Gone Badly

This week The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda are joined by author Jay Wilburn as well as podcaster Shelly Rosamilia live in studio. A Christmas miracle. 

They were all in Florida at a convention that didn’t go so well. Why?

Listen to the episode and stop being impatient.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 66 – Getting Kids To Read

We get our kicks on episode 66.

Anyone get it? No? 

On this episode of The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Negative Nancy (Armand Rosamilia) and Naive and Positeev (Chuck Buda) talk about the ways of the world. Specifically, getting kids these days to read an actual book and not just text messages. 

Do they have the answer? Uh… you gotta listen to find out. Spoiler alert: they ramble a lot as usual.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 65 – Writing Panels

Panels At Conventions.

As authors we’ve either been on an exciting panel or been in the audience ready to ask a brilliant question as a panel is happening. Right before our eyes. 

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda talk about their own experiences on both sides of the table during a panel.

Spoiler alert: Armand gets hot under the collar a couple of times in this one. He needs to switch to decaf? Nah. Just kidding. That’s not real coffee.

P.E.N. Anthology Cover Reveal

I was going to put the cover to the upcoming anthology My Favorite Story at the end of the post. Tease you about it for awhile. But it’s too exciting and good a cover to do that, so… enjoy. 

More details are coming soon. Really soon. This will be an amazing anthology of stories from some of the Project Entertainment Network authors we are honored to have as hosts of some of the best podcasts you will ever hear. 

Special thanks to Thomas O’Briant for the cover design and the authors who’ve given not only their favorite story but the why behind it being their favorite. 

 

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 64 – Mythos

Mythos.

Writers creating interlinked worlds for their stories. Characters crossing over into other novels. Settings used in other tales. Concepts. Creatures. Families. You name it. 

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda talk about their own mythos they’ve created for their stories (or lack thereof in one of their cases) and chat about other authors that do it a heck of a lot better than they do.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 63 – Proper Author Mindset

Proper Author Mindset. 

Has your master plan gone south? Are you struggling to stay focused with your writing career? Is everything you mapped out gone awry?

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda hope you can get it figured out. As you’ll hear on this episode, they have their own problems to deal with.

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 58 – Listener Mailbag 2

They’re at it again! 

Instead of coming up with anything creative on their own, The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda dive into the listener’s questions and hopefully answer a few of them coherently. 

If not it was still a fun time had by all.
