Author Rob Riley Talks to @BookGoodies About Writing

Author Rob Riley joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to talk about his book, how he choose a publisher, his writing style and tips for writers.


Author Bio:
I live with my wife, Mary Lynne, in southeastern Wisconsin. I spent thirty-two years as a Milwaukee police officer: Seven years doing undercover narcotics investigations and twenty-two years as a major crimes detective. Writing and reading have been lifelong passions; I began by writing short stories more than thirty years ago. Of course, police work provided both the insight and inspiration for my PI mystery novel, Portrait Of Murder. Two additional novels that feature my main character, Private Investigator Jack Blanchard, have been completed.

Author of Short Scripts Genevieve Sipperley Interview with @BookGoodies

Author Genevieve Sipperley joins BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney to talk about books, writing and current projects.

From Genna:
I was born and raised in Alaska. My town, called North Pole, was pretty small and I spent many nights writing away in my room as I watched snow fall outside my window. When I was younger, I started off writing mostly poetry and short stories. I was first nationally published when I was 16 and my first volume of poetry was published when I was 18. I had some minor success as a poet and short story writer, but after I graduated high school and left home for Chicago, I went to film school and that is when I knew I wanted to make the transition to screenwriting. During film school I studied Motion Picture and Television Screenwriting and I’ve been writing screenplay and scripts full-time ever since. I’ve sold a handful of short scripts and currently have a feature script being optioned.

“Lights, Camera – Wait, What?” is more than just a book of short scripts. There are notes on filmmaking that are ideal for new or independent filmmakers, as well as a quick guide on how to read a script. This book is filled with screenplays to film, scripts to read as short stories, or notes to use as a guide when writing or filming a script. Enjoy all of the different genres, characters, and ideas in this book of collected original short screenplays.

Interview with Travel Memoir Author Jill Dobbe

Author Jill Dobbe joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to talk about writing her fascinating travel memoir.

Here-We-Are-exterior-ver1JPG
Who says you can’t travel with kids? Dan and I find out we can do just that as we set off with our two very young kids, first to live and work on an island far out in the Pacific, then on to the continent of Africa with a few stops in between. Armed with strollers, diapers, and too much luggage, we travel to over twenty-five countries throughout a ten year span, while working together as international overseas educators.

After surviving typhoon Yuri, almost being mauled by lions, and, nearly being shot by a presidential guard, we happily endure all of the good times and bad, while living life to the fullest. A decade’s worth of experiences and lifelong memories remain with us, as we return to the U.S., now with two teenagers in tow, and begin to experience our very own version of reverse culture shock.

Author Bio:
Since writing HERE WE ARE & THERE WE GO, her first memoir about her travels, Jill has lived in Cairo, Egypt; Gurgaon, India; and Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where she now resides with her husband, Dan. Jill continues to work as an elementary administrator and writes on the side. She and Dan have weekly chats with their kids, who now as adults, can’t seem to stop traveling either. Her daughter graduates college soon and will travel to Honduras to teach. Her son is currently away at his first year of medical school. Every June, they travel from their separate locations and meet up together again, at their home on a lake in Wisconsin.

Wrestler Richie Frieman Talks About Writing Children's Books

Author Richie Frieman joins BookGoodies host Deborah Carney to discuss writing, publishing and all things book related.

Bio From Amazon Profile:
A Modern Day Renaissance Man, Richie Frieman has had a career spanning everything from professional artist, to columnist, to journalist, entrepreneur, inventor and even professional wrestler. With the release of Terple, Frieman is quickly becoming one of the most poetic and talented voices in children’s literature today. “Terple – Always Dream Bigger” (Trust Your Cape Publishing) is the follow up to Frieman’s 2008 release, “Terple – The Sky Is Just The Start”.

“Terple – Always Dream Bigger” is a winner of The 2012 Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Award for Best Poetry and Rhyme book, as well has been awarded the Literary Classics Seal of Approval. An avid philanthropist, Frieman uses Terple to give back to those in need by offering a portion of his profits from his book sales (for the life of it) to a different charity every month.

Believing that every great idea starts with a pen, paper and a vision, Frieman launched his award winning internet magazine The Pen’s Eye View (www.PensEyeView.com) on April 1, 2007. To date, PensEyeView.com has featured over 1,000 consecutive interviews with a different artist, musician, and visionary from all over the globe – a different one every 48 hours – from emerging artists to Grammy winners.

Frieman was awarded a Laureate medal at the 2008 Computerworld Honors Program (formerly known as the Smithsonian Award). He is the youngest recipient of this award and PensEyeView.com is the smallest company to ever have this honor bestowed on them.

Frieman is also known as The Modern Manners Guy for QuickAndDirtyTips.com (Macmillan Publishing) – a humorous weekly column and podcast about manners and etiquette. Inventing and entrepreneurship has also been one of Frieman’s passions, having launched his revolutionary fashion accessory called Collar Keeps which helps eliminate the fly away collar on dress shirts. He is also the Co-Founder of Charm City Babies, a vintage rock n’ roll, pop culture inspired baby clothing line.

Along with Frieman’s work in the arts, he has been known as the professional wrestler, “The Thrill From Israel” Buster Maccabi since 2000, having won more than a dozen titles in various federations throughout the country. Please visit www.RichieFrieman.com and on Twitter @RichieFrieman

Co-authors & Newlyweds Antonio and Alvin Lopez-Woods Author Interview @BookGoodies


Don’t let the title fool you, this book isn’t about gay sex, it is about relationships between people. Co-authors and newlyweds, Antonio and Alvin Lopez-Woods join BookGoodies podcast host Deborah Carney for an in-depth discussion about their marriage, their book and advice for writers about not only writing, but about marketing as well.

From Alvin and Antonio:
*The Best Workout is “Sex”: A Gay Guide to Your Ideal Marriage * – The first all-inclusive relationship guide, is poised to bring much needed attention to the joys, trials, and tribulations that all couples face on their respective journey to an ideal partnership, regardless of sexual orientation.

Co-authors and newlyweds, Antonio and Alvin Lopez-Woods, have written a book to further bridge the equality gap by focusing on several facets of two people in a relationship. The overarching theme of *The Best Workout is “Sex”: A Gay Guide to Your Ideal Marriage* is love and respect – two principles that people crave in humanity. Mr. and Mr. Lopez-Woods advocate the need for all couples to work on intimate relationship factors such as emotional and mental “sex,” ultimately enhancing the physical connection between the two.

The book has been available for two months and has garnered rave reviews, made Amazon’s best-sellers list, and the title is being picked up by international and national bookstores. The title was also named one of the best summer ’12 LGBT themed books by Pink Magazine, The Edge, Hot Spots Magazine, and Grab Chicago.

My Review of American Goddesses by Gary Henry

Book: American Goddesses by Gary Henry

I enjoyed the story American Goddesses even though it did get a bit sappy towards the end. Now being an emotional female, I cried and hugged and shared the sorrow with the characters, but a guy would probably say, “Okay enough of the tears, just get on with the story already…. Alright a man hug. There are you happy now?”

American Goddesses is a story about two women, Megan and Trish, who volunteer for a medical experiment that could wipe out all diseases known to man or woman, from the common cold to cancer. What they get are super powers that complicate their lives in good and bad ways.

Gary did an excellent job of weaving the story so that you felt you were a part of it. You felt the emotions of the characters. You could see them just as clearly as if you were in Gary’s head as he wrote.

Would I recommend American Goddesses? Yes. Would I give it five stars? Yes, I would.

Buddha Beach: Sedona, Arizona (The Southwest Gallery Series)

Buddha Beach: Sedona, Arizona (The Southwest Gallery Series) (Deborah Carney, Liz Fogg, Alec Ababon) As I (Deborah Carney) was photographing the tiny (and not so tiny) rock structures I knew they had to be paired with quotes and sayings from Buddha. I hope you will enjoy this journey through Buddha Beach paired with some insightful quotations. The photographs in this book are taken by myself, my daughter Liz, and her son Alec. I was going to identify who took what, but I don’t want to detract from the beauty of the images and the sayings they are paired with. I will say that I am proud to say that each of us contributed and individual attribution isn’t necessary. All the sayings in the book are attributed to Buddha.
