I am super excited to share this week’s episode with you folks! I have a wonderful talk with the wildly talented JY Yang. We talk the difference in writing short stories, novellas, and novels. JY talks about their recently released novellas The Red Threads of Fortune and The Black Tides of Heaven.
I had a blast talking to them. I hope you enjoy!
JY Yang is the author of the Tensorate novellas from Tor.Com Publishing (The Red Threads of Fortune, The Black Tides of Heaven and two more slated for 2018). They live in Singapore and identify as queer and non-binary. Find them online at http://jyyang.com, or on Twitter: @halleluyang.

The holidays are passing at a raging, hair-tangling speed on my end. How about with you?
In just a few short days 2017 will be over and a new year will begin. It’s been quite a year. I am trying to take a moment or three to catch my breath. 2018 is going to be a big one for me career-wise, so there is a part of me that really does
want to take a breath so that’s what I am trying to do. Come January 3rd my schedule morphs into a sharp-toothed creature.
The show closes out 2017 with
author, Myke Cole. Myke is the
author of the Shadow Ops Series and forth-coming The Armored Saint and a nonfiction history book Legion vs. Phalanx.
Myke and I talk New Year’s resolutions, the important role tabletop games have in the creative process, his recent release Siege Line and forthcoming works. And, quite a bit more.
