Tweep Nation Rocks the Depend now We’re LIVE

tweeplogofinal

Ok, you can say it: Dionne’s been lazy. I’m sorry but I’ve been so busy I didn’t post last week’s awesome Tweep Nation Podcast on my blog *holds hand out for a smack* (I originally typed ‘for smack’ but that just sounded wrong). Anyway, last week, episode 44, we entertained author Jason McIntyre. He was so cool (loved the Canadian accent) and he was super obliging and married Bobbi Jo on air with Amber officiating in her reverend capacity. Unfortunately Bobbi Jo had to leave when her dealer came to the door.

This week was our third live-streamed show, and Dance on Fire author, Jimmy Garcia, agreed to be our victim. His second book has recently been released, Flash Point, and has a super interesting premise. You should check it out :). He was patient and listened while Amber and I talked sex drive, spooky whistling and what constitutes being a slut. Oh dear, will we ever behave? (I think not, so don’t hold your breath).

You can listen on all the usual places (iTunes, stitcher and Newbiewriters) or you can join us live, at the time of our demise, every week—Friday night US time, Saturday morning Aus time. If you join the live chatroom we can see your comments in real time. We’d love to see you there cause it rocks! Look out for times on @TweepNation1 as we’ll update it every week (as times can change) :).

Get Your Trenchcoats—Amber & Dionne go Live with Damien

This week we went live! That’s right, we had a live audience. Our guest was Newbiewriter host and host of the awesome Newbiewriters website, Damien. Damien’s doing Movember, so support him if you can, he also has a wicked sense of humour and we covered interesting topics such as neighbours having affairs, to, what if people were built like octopi, and how to make pitching your book easy, which may or may not involve bringing a mask to the interview. It was loads of fun to address our listeners’ comments as they typed in the chat room, so thank for joining us (you awesome peeps know who you are). Lucky for everyone else, it is recorded and available at the usual places: itunes, newbiewriters and stitcher. Enjoy episode 43!

Amber & Dionne get Serious with Author Edward Lazellari

Our Awesome guest on Tweep Nation today is traditionally published author, Edward Lazellari. He’s a New York author who is about to release the second book in his urban fantasy series. The first book, Awakenings, was super awesome (look out for my review). He’s worked as an artist for Marvel Comics and apparently he’s the reason Amber failed geometry—listen to find out why. Edward also has some great advice for those of you who dream of being successful at writing. An inspirational and entertaining interview. Don’t miss it! Go now! (sorry, was that too bossy?)

Just a reminder, if you can’t listen on iTunes we’re also on Newbiewriters.com and Stitcher.

Amber gets Clicky with Dionne & Michelle’s Blobs

Our uber awesome guest today was author, Michelle Franco. She has been a long-time Twitter friend of Amber & I and has appeared on Tweep Nation once before. Michelle writes zombie stories and has two books out, her latest is Where Will You Hide. She was very patient while Amber clicked her mouse like there was no tomorrow: I, on the other hand, was ready to send Amber to podcast heaven. She really knows how to push my buttons. Gee, how did I manage to write so many cliches into one blog post? It’s skill I suppose. Join the Tweep Nation podcast for hysterics, hysterectomies and histrionics and occasionally you may hear something intelligent between the swear words.

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 Give Kelly Calloway a Crash Course in Tweep Nation

He, he, our guest today, on episode 30, was the fabulous Kelly Calloway: poet, English teacher and beauty salon owner. Boy did she have some hilarious stories to tell that involved waxing, butt cheeks and tents.

Bobby Jo gave an impromptu reading. We didn’t expect her to turn up, but Amber asked and wouldn’t you know, she was close by. We also found out that Miss Kelly hasn’t actually listened to our show before (off to the naughty corner with you!). We were able to set her straight on what goes on and I’m sure she’s a convert now. There is a lot of snorting on today’s show, so have an extra bottle handy. Get those shot glasses ready and turn on Tweep Nation.
