Tweep Nation has a Casual Catchup with Susan May

Today for episode 38, Susan May, author, movie and book reviewer extraordinaire, gave us the lowdown on JK Rowling’s new book The Casual Vacancy. We also discussed which movies to see and which to avoid. Amber’s a bit sick so she was unusually quiet until she voiced her objection to doing ‘Days of the Week’—she sure expended some energy then. Susan’s a friendly Aussie who had us laughing, but don’t ever ask her to mind your pets ;). Please join us for the usual laughs and some unusual ones.

Amber & Dionne explore Bellybuttons, Jeebers and Ordainment with Author Donna Cavanagh

Another chukleworthy episode of Tweep Nation. Our guest today is author and journalist, Donna Cavanagh. I’ve actually reviewed her book, Try and Avoid the Speed Bumps, on my website. I loved her book. She’s a funny lady so it’s no surprise that we share the same birthday ;). Topics discussed today include being a reverend, bellybutton displacement, Jesus and his robe and the godawful reality tv show Honey Boo Boo (I’m shuddering as I type this). One last thing—please, if you enjoy our show, vote for us in the Stitcher podcast awards. We are always hoping for more listeners, and we need your help :). Thanks guys, hope you enjoy this week’s show!

Amber & Dionne get the Giggles with Charity Parkerson

Serenity now! Amber was at our guest’s house for this Tweep Nation podcast and god it was hard work! It was like being the only sober person in the room or the only adult in a daycare centre *sigh*. I did survive, though, barely. Bobbi Jo popped in to keep me company for a few minutes—I wish she’d stayed. Listen in to hear what erotica writer, Charity Parkerson, is up to at the moment. Please forgive us for this podcast.

Amber & Dionne Talk James Bond, Reviews and Toilet Paper with Author Barry Crowther

Successful author Barry Crowther writes mystery and horror. He joins us to chat about traditional publishing, agents, self publishing and reviews (in light of the recent pay for review controversy). We giggled at times because we can’t help ourselves, but Barry was a super interesting guest. I must apologise now for my children who don’t know how to leave me alone lol. Join us for another cool episode of Twitter’s favourite podcasts Tweep Nation (ok, so I might be stretching the truth).

Rayne Hall Brings out the Best in Amber & Dionne

 

Today, on episode 32 of Tweep Nation, we are joined by author, writing teacher and editor Rayne Hall. There are a couple of first for this show.

Number 1: Rayne is the first guest with a German accent and

Number 2: There was no swearing.

What? I hear you ask. No swearing. How could that be, it’s Amber and Dionne we’re talking about. Well, Rayne was so polite that we were too. Don’t let that stop you listening though, because we’re still all very interesting, especially when I reveal the extent to which my Alzheimer’s has progressed.

Amber & Dionne’s Cat Fight Over Ben Ditmars

This week, on episode 31 of Tweep Nation, we entertained Ben Ditmars and he entertained us with his amazing poetry. He’s an author who has self-published four books. We tried hard to talk about him but as you know, we have trouble sticking on topic. We managed to talk about roadkill, sex changes and school (interesting combination don’t you think?). Join us for another hilarious and informative episode. I’d also like to thank Bobbi Jo for saving the day at the last minute and doing Days of the Week.
