Welcome to Episode 93 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode Greg and mutual friend (and veteran SFF author) Brenda Cooper turn the microphone around and interview Speculate! co-host Brad Beaulieu about his inspirations, his use of language, and his love of ships (among many other things) in The Lays of Anuskaya series and his upcoming Song of the Shattered Sands series, as well as a few insights into his middle grade series in progress. We even get Brad to give some advice on how to promote oneself without being obnoxious about it…sometimes a difficult skill to master! If you like what you hear, make sure to check back next week when Greg will take his turn on the hot seat. Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!
