After immersing myself in the bloody pool that is Frank Underwood, I can’t get that voice out of my head. I only wish House of Cards broke the fourth wall more. There were a couple of heavy-handed moments in this season and it was a slow open. However, overall, I recommend it. No spoilers in this edition of the podcast. In fact, anything I mention about House of Cards is purely tangential. But…that voice. I…"Podcast: Binge Watched House of Cards Edition"
I replaced my old covers with these new ones from my graphic designer! In Hollywood Jesus, luckless Cuban hit man Jesus Diaz is out to take down a sex slave ring. This time, his opponent beats Jesus at the divine assassin’s games at every turn. Expect twists, jokes, big surprises and instructions on how to do some things you really shouldn’t. I love Kit Foster’s covers from KitFosterDesign.com. The Omnibus (below) is your best deal: 3…"Bookalicious! Kit Foster strikes again! It’s a hit, man!"
In this episode, how to locate someone who doesn’t want to be found, how to make a bomb from scratch at the convenience store and a surprise ad for another podcast! It’s all in Night of the Hunter, a new chapter reading from Higher Than Jesus, the crime novel by your host, Robert Chazz Chute. Seriously, the pizza trick is going to worry you if you’re hiding out from anyone. Sorry for the delays in…"Night of the Hunter Edition"
For Joel Friedlander’s Ebook Cover Design Awards (since I guess I have to pick one), I’m nominating the Season II, Episode 5 cover below: Just for the extra implied menace, I had to go with this cover, but I love all the covers of this serial (Season One was brilliant, too!) I love all of Kit Foster’s cover art. Kit has won two awards from Joel Friedlander for two of my books already,…"My Covers for Season Two of This Plague of Days by Kit Foster of KitFosterDesign.com"
In this, the 82nd episode, a rant about the why of the downfall of US democracy (well, one why), a taste of what The Little Book of Braingasms is like and a reading from the Hunger Games chapter of the crime novel, Higher Than Jesus. Brace yourself for glamazon ideation and deep reflections on addiction. Chill’s been stabbed and Jesus Diaz has to somehow track down Willow Clemont before the Fat Man and Lurch kill…"#Podcast: The Hunger Games Edition"
Find Part 1 of this post, Amazon Throttled, on ChazzWrites.com. Skip to Part 3: Me, Full Throttle for another answer for finding readers. Time to wrestle and tell the dirty truth. What else can you do to find readers for your books and give them the best chance in the Marketplace of Awesomeness? And what sucks? Here’s my take: 1. Are blog tours really doing it for you? Are blog readers converting to book readers?…"Throttling You: And some of this isn’t very nice"
It’s podcast #70! However, confidence shaken, join me as I go down the rabbit hole of angst and get past the ennui. Top secrets are teased; new podcasts, books and podcasts are launched; I talk about the glory of Cormac McCarthy’s No Country for Old Men; writing contests, fear and gratitude. We round out the podcast with some What’s Cool News about a new app called Vine and I read one of my favorite chapters…"The Mean Streets Edition"
Blame the media over two outrages you probably won’t believe. Annoying grammar police shoot three and The Undercover Man, Chapter 4 of Higher Than Jesus pours you some hot coffee. My mistake: The link to the Moment of Clarity podcast is actually leecamp.net (not the link I gave in the podcast. Here’s the link to Lee Camp’s video with more about the true perpetrators of the assassination of MLK. To donate a tweet to Lee Camp, go here.…"The What’s Uncool Edition"
