Interview with Gail Z Martin

Sometime earlier this year I got this great idea to interview a group of female authors who wrote vampire fiction. I didn't really think through how much work it would be to edit and publish all these podcasts, but I'm glad I didn't because I probably wouldn't have!

Seriously, though, it's usually *me* that needs the editing. I ramble on, trying to say something intelligent or trying to make the author feel at ease and then when I listen to it later, I realize it doesn't really contribute anything to the episode, so I have to edit it out. I try to keep my episodes around 30 minutes or less so that people can listen to them during short breaks.

In April, I interviewed author Gail Z Martin, who also did a short reading from her book in the next episode.
