Alive After Reading 123 J Daniel Sawyer


This week, J Daniel Sawyer returns the podcast! Click that name to check out his website.

Dan is a great talker, writer, podcaster, and full of all kinds of knowledge. Check out his podcast, The Every Day Novelist and send him some questions to keep that show rolling. This podcast is a favorite of Tim’s, so if you’re a writer you’ll definitely get a lot out of it.

That said, one correction: Dan talked about reading The Lucifer Principle by Harold Bloom in the episode, mentioning he died a couple of weeks ago. While Harold Bloom did die a couple of weeks ago, HOWARD Bloom did not, and he is the author of The Lucifer Principle. Apologies. Dyslexia is a hell of a thing.

Love epic fantasy? Tim’s first novel in the genre is out and about! Read Demon Scroll today!

Thanks for listening!

News of the Day – November 10th 2019

Hey folks. I know, I know. I didn’t get an episode of Alive After Reading recorded this week. It’s been a beast trying to schedule guests on my own each week.

Regardless, expect a return to form soon.

In the meantime, I am hard at work editing Shadow Prince, currently up for preorder at

I got a new job. The secret kind. I’m looking forward to starting that soon. Sorry, I can’t say more about that.

Last but not least, I have a nice little blog post as a guest up at Kristine Raymond’s Word Play podcast website. Check it out! I always enjoy getting to work or chat with Kristine.

That’s what I got for you this week.

Thanks for reading!

Of Mooks and Monsters if off this week

Hi folks.

This week, the book production process is taking its toll on the rest of my time. I have entered a moment of intense work for my current project.

As a result, I couldn’t get an episode for Of Mooks and Monsters scheduled or recorded this week.

Thanks for understanding.

I hope to be back on the air next week.
