Welcome to Episode 104 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we chat for the second time with actor, director and writer Amber Benson about a variety of projects, from the upcoming film Blood Kiss (co-starring Neil Gaiman) to Amber’s new series with Ace/Roc, The Witches of Echo Park. Amber also talks about her gradual transition from acting to directing, why having the chance to get lost in creation is a joy rather than an addiction, and some of the pros and cons of crowdfunding. As always, Amber is interesting and engaging, and we hope you’ll enjoy the interview as much as we did. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week when we’ll begin a triptych of shows on The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, the latest standalone novel from Holly Black. Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!
Additional Note: Speaking of Kickstarters, we’re almost halfway through ours, and though many of you have generously supported us and spread the word (thanks so much!), we still need everyone’s help to make our goal. If you haven’t already, please check out, support and spread the word about the Kickstarter–and thanks so much as always!
