14 - Hanging Out With Jonathan L. Howard

August 7, 2015

The grand hiatus is FINALLY OVER!

A few weeks ago, Chelsey and I sat down to talk to one of my all time favourite authors Jonathan L. Howard. We talked about the Cabal Series, world building, the differences between writing short stories and full length novels and his upcoming book Carter and Lovecraft.
The full interview ran just short of an hour, making it too long to include here. Instead I've given a ten minute segment here and will post the full length interview on our youtube channel. The link will be included below.
Thanks again to Jonathan L. Howard for agreeing to speak with us, it was a blast and hopefully something we can do again in the future.
A word of warning, due to technical difficulties our audio portions of the interview aren't top quality. I've managed to save them as much as I could but I'm not completely happy with how they turned out. 
That being said, strap in and enjoy!
