Beginning in November 2020, the Hourlings Podcast has been bringing you weekly perspectives from real working writers in the SF/Fantasy genres. In April, we discussed how to get the most out of book signings, Martin Wilsey unloaded on how he’s achieved tremendous success with audio editions of his books/stories, I led a discussion on all sorts of outlining techniques (including some that may be useful to pantsers), and then, finally, we helped you get in touch with your inner George R. R. Martin (by killing characters).

Our illustrious authors will help you get in touch with your inner “George R. R. Martin” and show how being “murdery” can make your story better.
