Episode #104: Author and Illustrator Missy Sheldrake Interview #2 Part 1 of 2
In this week’s episode, fantasy author Missy Sheldrake comes back to the show to catch us up on all the things she’s been up to this past year (find her first interview here). We spend much of this episode talking about the creative process, how writing takes on a life of its own, illustrating books, and what a shame it is that books for former children tend not to have pictures anymore.
Here are some screenshots from Missy’s Instagram gallery, where she posts pictures of works in process:
This progression is of her character Tib, who was introduced in Call of Sunteri.

Thanks again, Missy, for coming on the show, and good luck writing book #5!
Between Two Worlds, the synth EP follow up to Long Ago Not So Far Away is now out for streaming on Bandcamp. Podcast listeners can still download the album until 8/10 (minus the bonus track) here http://bit.ly/2txyAaM (access code is on episode 100 at ~31:30).
The bonus track, called “Flight of the Cloudrider” has a 80s movie mashup music video (see if you can identify all the movies!) which is available on youtube. This app was largely created with the iphone app Auxy.
Stay tuned. Follow along on Spotify! There is also a growing extended Thirteenth Hour playlist on Spotify with a growing number of retro 80s songs.
As always, thanks for listening!
