Deena is back with Peter to go off on authors that feel the need so deeply for validation they are wiling to pay vanity publishers to get it. This a a rare episode where the gloves are off and Deena Rae gives straight talk in completely blunt and no holds-barred style.

When Deena Rae isn’t bitching, Peter actually gets to talk about a Facebook advertising method, and his favorite sheep of the day, Flossy….

Deena is back with Peter to talk about the date that wasn’t a date, sobering up, dating injuries as well as box sets, ebook file sizes and delivery charges, one sheets and drunken poets.  We also geek out about smutty books, poetry readings and watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix.

Episode with Peter & Deena – Deena’s first time letting someone else edit…

Book Numbers, Booze and Barrett Brown:  In this week’s podcast Deena and Peter discuss the importance of owning your own ISBN numbers and the possibility of sharing them with other authors.  Also under the microscope is social media and as ever the booze, what the Scots call the bevvy.  Does a writer really need it?  Seems like these two do.  Peter also talks about imprisoned Texan writer Barrett Brown while Deena gets ready for a big date that wasn’t.

Deena is back with Janet to  rag on Peter for standing them up…poor boy was sickly and they didn’t want to subject the listeners to his croaking, coughing and sneezing. The Texas Duo discuss #HoustonAuthorBash, swag ideas, utopia for writers and authors, and the awesome new idea that Amtrack has just completed a pilot experiment test run. As the girls are chatting we hear that one of them has a birthday milestone coming up and get a sneak peek into the plans these women are making to celebrate.

Deena is back with Peter this week. For a short show, there was plenty discussed…book length classifications, Google+ as well as Facebook Pages and Twitter, past lives,  book fairs and expos, just to name a few.  Deena tells about her experience thus far with publishing her own book and gives plugs to herself and Peter has to cut the show short since he develops a craving for Jägermeister. (Hence the intro and exit song by Tattooed Mother Fuckers)

Episode 38 Plus Platforms and Past Lives  or streaming

Deena is back with Peter and Janet to kick the new year off right. We get to catch up with the 3 hosts to find out if Janet is still an aspiring author, if Peter has published anything this year, and if Deena has started a career in porn. Just kidding but she does make the leap into publishing her own book and gives plugs to herself.  We talk about promoting books, pricing them, puking, and Peter’s affinity for hugging wood and the pyromaniac tendencies of one of the hosts.

Calling Scottish Authors

scotlandflag

Our resident Scot has decided to leave the show so Bluebonnets, Bagpipes and Books is looking for a few Scottish authors and writers who are interested in becoming part of our dysfunctional yet entertaining family. 

If you know the rules of grammar and writing, have a sense of humor, have a thick skin, don’t take yourself too seriously, don’t mind foul-mouths and can roll with the flow when a literary discussion verres off the subject (and rails) let us know. (Or if you know of someone who you think would fit in let them know about our search!)

This is an excellent opportunity to get some exposure for yourself, your writing and your knowledge – we have some amazing listeners and experience downloads in great numbers every month with plans to expand greater in the coming year.

No previous experience with podcasting is expected or necessary. Feel free to contact the producer via email and pass this information on to any writer or author that you know!

Episode 31 sees Deena with special guest Amber Jerome Norrgard.  They discuss drinking, (of course) family, stress and hospital visits. Not much about writing or publishing on this episode, just 2 redheaded Texas women talking about life. Deena does mention her new endeavor – she’s actually started writing. Don’t believe the rumours; Deena was not in rehab.  Whether or not she should have been is another issue.

Episode 30 sees Deena and Mark Rice return from hiatus.  They discuss drinking, Amazon’s asinine terms and conditions for reviews, and the idiots who ‘review’ books they haven’t read. Don’t believe the rumours; Deena was not in rehab.  Whether or not she should have been is another issue.
