In Search of a City: Los Angeles in 1,000 Words/ Booked Podcasts

Happy Thanksgiving!

In Search of a City: Los Angeles in 1,000 Words is a brand new collection featuring 26 authors and photography by the editor Michael Paul Gonzales. A resident of Los Angeles, Michael took his photos near his city and let the authors write a story about one of the photos. Keeping with the age-old phrase ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’, each story is exactly one thousand words, no more no less. This line up of writers is impressive, and I am honored to be a part of this awesome print collection.

Those guys at Booked are at it again, and I’m a little behind in my posting about this, so please accept my apology. First up is last weeks episode, featuring a review of Jonathan Maberry’s latest, Dead of Night. Maberry’s typically hails in the Zombie genre, and this book should fit in quite nicely with those needing an undead fix for the holidays. Click here to listen to the podcast. Then, this weeks episode is a review of Ray Banks’novel Dead Money and an interview Blasted Heathen Allan Guthrie. Click here to listen to the podcast. I’m thinking Livius and Robb must have those fancy 28 hour watches instead of the cheap 24 hour watch I use…where do they find the time? Make sure you check out next weeks Booked Podcast when they review In Search of a City: Los Angeles in 1,000 Words and hopefully get to chat with Thundadome Writer’s Collective editor Michael Paul Gonzales.
