  1. Howard, now that we are in 2020….we are all terrified. None of us could have predicted all of the mayhem of 2020.

  2. This week, Dan, Mary Robinette, Howard, and Dongwon talked about what to do when you get orphaned by editors, your books just aren’t selling, or maybe your series tanks. Keep going! Diversify! Try different things! Plan ahead, and set up that nest egg just in case… lots of interesting advice and stories from the trenches, available now in the transcript in the archives.

  3. I can’t find the interview you mentioned with Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham. Could you post a link, please?

  4. Can someone help? I can’t find the episode where they talk with Franck and Abraham. They said that it would be included in the liner notes, but I don’t see anything about it…

  5. Seeing as how my financial wherewithal is on par with a five-year old hopped up on his weekly allowance, I think Day-job is a fine income stream to have.

  6. You mentioned Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck were guests in a previous episode but never linked it in the show notes. I can’t seem to find the episode is question either. Would it be possible to add to the show notes? Thank you very much!
