Welcome to Episode 116 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we talk for the second time to Lou Anders, former editor at Pyr Books during an award-winning career and author of Frostborn, the first book in the middle grade fantasy series Thrones & Bones. We talk about what it’s like to transition from editor to author, how Lou’s somehow managed to get even busier in his new career, and why Kermit the Frog serves as an inspiration…even in Norway! We really enjoyed chatting with Lou again, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. If so, make sure to check back next week when we’ll have a special episode on podcasting in the speculative fiction field with Patrick Hester of the SF Signal Podcast and Anton Strout of the Once & Future Podcast. Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!
Additional Note: We taped our fifth Good, Bad and Ugly segment during this interview, and it’s one of the most comprehensive ones on record! If you’re interested in hearing it, keep in mind that it’s available to our Patreon backers of $3 or more a month–so please head over and become a patron, and thanks!
