88. An Interview With Maya Banks Part II, Plus Listener Email!

 

Jane asks Maya Banks about her response to reader disappointment with After the Storm. Jane talks about author responses to reader reactions

Please note that after about 4:55 into the podcast, audio problems created a segment wherein it sounds like we threw Maya down a well. Which we did, of course. We tossed her down a well and gave her a microphone to finish the interview. (No, not really but it sounds that way. I’m sorry about that.)

But what she had to say about responding was so interesting that we wanted to share it.

Then, listener email! Recommendations, questions, requests, and suggestions – oh, my!

Book The Kraken King - MelJean BrookThis podcast is brought to you by InterMix, publisher of Meljean Brook’s all-new e-serial novel THE KRAKEN KING, a sexy steampunk adventure with a first installment available April 15th!

The Kraken King and the Scribbling Spinster

A former smuggler and thief, Ariq—better known as the Kraken King—doesn’t know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she’s a spy or a pawn in someone else’s game, Ariq isn’t about to let her out of his sight until he finds out…

After escaping her fourth kidnapping attempt in a year, Zenobia Fox has learned to vigilantly guard her identity. While her brother Archimedes is notorious for his exploits, Zenobia has had no adventures to call her own—besides the stories she writes.

But when she jumps at the chance to escape to the wilds of Australia and acquire research for her next story, Zenobia quickly discovers that the voyage will be far more adventurous than any fiction she could put to paper…

The music you’re listening to was provided by Sassy Outwater. This is Sassy herself playing “Fiddler on the Loose,” and I’m not sure if she recorded this just for us on the fly (in which case, holy crap) or if this is a composition she’s worked on, but that’s Sassy fiddling. Literally.

After the Storm -  Maya Banks

Book The King Don’t miss J.R. Ward’s THE KING from New American Library—the highly anticipated new book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle–with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head.

As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything–and everyone–at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response–or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out… or tortured legacy take over?

Album Affric Our music in each episode is provided by Sassy Outwater, who is most excellent. This podcast features new music! YAY!
