Oh dang! Guess who it is now (still Lee and Eddie)! We’re back, and never stopping not stopping! This episode we discuss Jordan Peele’s new horrific masterpiece: US, Michelle Dicinoski’s surprisingly non-spooky Ghost Wife, and Stephen King (as Bachman) is back(man)!
We’re also excited to announce the launch of our digital beta and sensitivity reading service, Frank & Co.! Beta reading is a critical step designed to strengthen a writer’s work on the road to publishing! Frank & Co. beta readers will test read your manuscript from the perspective of a general reader and provide a comprehensive report on a whole range of factors including consistency, structural effectiveness, pacing, voice, characterisation, readability, and reader satisfaction!
We’ve had many requests for beta reading from Crime Time listeners over the years, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to offer this service to our book community! Because we’re family here at Crime Time, we’re offering a 20% discount when you use the code “launch20” at checkout.
Lee’s been reading some proper classics this episode! That’s right, it’s time for Agatha Christie! Eddie’s having some Eurasian feels about Dragon Springs Road, and have any of you heard about this Stephen King guy? Eddie reckons he might just be a one hit wonder, but Lee reckons he’s got a bright future head of him.
Stephen King’s IT has finally hit the theatres, and Lee is all set, popcorn in hand! Eddie is hiding behind her chair, but that’s pretty much par for the course!
To celebrate the release of this remake featuring the most terrifying clown in the world, Lee and Eddie are counting down their fave Stephen King books, Stephen King facts, and speculating on whether Eddie will ever sleep again. (No)
Eddie has the flu! That’s right, Lee is risking life and limb by sitting anywhere near the cloud of germs that is Eddie right now. You could say that Eddie is at the centre of The Dead Zone! Or maybe that’s what Lee’s reading this week… Eddie binge-watched the entirety of Trial & Error, and reckons it’s pretty good! Unless that’s just the fever talking! Lee wants to know how anyone survived the invention of the prank show, and Eddie should probably go cancel that order of bees that she was gonna hide in Lee’s car…
All this and more in a frankly excellent episode of Crime Time Podcast!
This week Lee and Eddie debate Aliens vs Ghosts, talk fave episodes of The X Files, Lee still won’t stop talking about Stephen King (who could blame her), and they discover that there are other Crime Fiction podcasts in the world. Who would have thought it!
If you want to hear a review from Lee’s mum, buy us a coffee, or hear Eddie’s latest elevator pitch for this season’s new blockbuster thriller, then sit down, get comfortable, and tune in to this week’s episode!
Lee and Eddie are back to their constant bickering over which one of them Stephen King might adopt and who’s allowed to make edits (and when). Lee (who Stephen King would totally adopt if Eddie weren’t the obviously better choice), gets in some sucking up with a glowing review of Bag of Bones. Eddie (who has great hair and is really good at pretending to lose at board games) reviews Doug Johnstone’s Crash Land, and isn’t sure about aviation anymore.
