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 and Eddie are back on their bullshit! That’s right, we couldn’t stay away! Eddie has finally defeated the giant bird that follows her everywhere she goes, and Lee has finally convinced Eddie that the bird isn’t real (or is it?).
Eddie’s back on the metafiction, and just won’t stop insisting that Italo Calvino’s If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler is so cheeky it’s a crime. Lee has your back, and brings the goods with a review of K.L. Slater’s Liar.
Lee and Eddie take a moment to pay their respects to the one and only Sue Grafton, who sadly passed away late last year. Without her amazing work this podcast would probably never have been made, and we wanted to share some of our favourite moments from her Alphabet series.
Lee has gotten their hands on a copy of Killman Creek, the sequel to the amazing Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake, and they just can’t wait to tell you all about it! Eddie wants to know the answers to the questions that keep us all up late at night, and that is: Is it sexy, or is it scary? That’s right, you’ve always wanted to know if the Fair Folk were straight up sexy, or super scary, and we’re here to answer that!
They’re heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere! That’s right, Lee and Eddie wouldn’t leave you hanging for the holiday season! The last episode of the year has arrived, and it is truly a gift!
Lee reviews Laura Marshall’s chilling Friend Request while Eddie just pales in fear at the idea of making friends. Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake arrives just in time for you to binge the first two of this ongoing series, and Eddie is swooning over the coffee table book/pulp fiction history book of the year!
We will see al of you beautiful people in the new year, with an all new schedule, and more banter to make your reading life especially extra!
