James Tenedero Author Interview with @BookGoodies

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

James Tenedero is a Montreal author, PhD student, (sometime) adventurer, and (unrepentant) bibliophile. After stints in corporate finance and management consulting, James answered the calling of academia: he is currently enrolled in PhD studies at McGill University with the hopes of eventually securing his place in the ivory tower.

When he’s not writing fiction, James can be found in his office researching organizational innovation and writing non-fiction. THE CONSISTENCY OF PARCHMENT is his first full-length novel.

Weirder Than Marshmallows Review by Rule of Thumb

I was going to try to write a review of this book, but let’s face it, the author is my brother and I think it’s all hilarious and have since he started the original website, so I’m going to just give you some info about the book 🙂

Introduction from Daniel
Ignorance, lack of common sense, and downright inhuman stupidity run rampant in this country and around the world. I watch people, and I hear stories, and they beg, beg, beg to be mocked and ridiculed.

Weirder Than Marshmallows
showcases tales of stupidity and ignorance in the hopes of making people laugh. Stories are divided into five categories.

Do Not Stop on Tracks showcases warnings that should never have to be warned.

En Masse contains stories of mass ignorance.

Technology Sucks explores the hazards of the technological age.

That’s Just Freaky features Twilight Zone like tales of paranormality.

Weird Stuff is stuff that is… well, weird

All the stories on the site are true. That’s what makes the concept attention grabbing. Anybody can make up strange stories, writers do it all the time. That’s why people love Stephen King, his stories are downright weird.

But these are real, they actually happened, to relatively normal human beings. There’s no fiction here.

Editor’s Note:
Then there are the musings about life and things in general that follow these five categories.

All of the content in this book was written by Dan Fogg, except as noted as an Editor’s Note.

Jennifer Fromke Author Interview with @BookGoodies

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

Jennifer Fromke was born and raised in Michigan, attended Wheaton College in IL, and lived her first married years in Minneapolis, MN. She writes from North Carolina these days where she pines away for cooler temps amidst a sea of people drinking sweet tea. Her biggest fans are her husband of 20 years and her three children, who keep her life filled with brilliant colors and big dreams. They eagerly await their annual trip to northern Michigan and time together on their favorite lake.

From Jennifer:
My debut novel is entitled “A Familiar Shore.” The manuscript won the 2010 Genesis Award for Women’s Fiction given by American Christian Fiction Writers group. The back cover copy reads: Meg Marks is a young lawyer raised off the coast of the Carolinas. An anonymous client hires her to arrange his will, and sends her to meet his estranged family at their lake home in northern Michigan. After a shocking discovery, she finds herself caught between his suspicious family and a deathbed promise her conscience demands that she keep. Will she sacrifice her own dreams for revenge, or will she choose something more?

The largest portion of the book takes place in northern Michigan on Lake Charlevoix, but there are scenes at the coast of North Carolina, Charlotte, NC, Savannah, GA, at sea on the ocean and Key West, FL.

This novel was published traditionally through a smaller publisher and is available in print and digital formats.

I also self-pubbed a Christmas short story which is available in digital format only.

I’m currently at work on another novel which leans even more toward women’s fiction and I’m fighting back emerging ideas for further projects so I can finish this next one asap!

Hear another podcast with Jennifer on her views as a work at home mom.

Maryann Reid Author and Entrepreneur Interview with @BookGoodies

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

Award-winning author (St. Martins Press) and entrepreneur Maryann Reid has been featured by countless media outlets including USA Today, Essence, Glamour, The CBS Early Show, and The Wendy Williams Experience.

Maryann’s first book Sex and the Single Sister: 5 Novellas was published by St. Martins Press when she was just 25 years old. At that time, Maryann had no idea that a few stories she wrote in her journal would become characters and later become a book. But she quickly learned the power of the media and pop culture influence on publishers and their decision-making. Because of the popularity of HBO’s Sex and The City, she hit the zeitgeist she sold her first book without it being finished. She signed her first book deal with St. Martins and the strong support of a stellar agent.
