Jeff and I had a wonderful time in Florida and we recap our weekend at the 2019 Coastal Magic Convention.

Gail Z. Martin, who writes m/m romance under the name Morgan Brice, joins us to talk about the interlocking universes she’s created between her pen names that span multiple genres — including fantasy, steampunk and urban fantasy. We also talk about her recent releases, including The Rising as well as Badlands in audiobook.

This episode concludes with a wild story from the Coastal Magic Convention Improv Flash Fiction panel! Authors Eric R. Asher, Kathy Lyons, Damon Suede, Lucienne Driver, Amy Lane and Kiernan Kelly create a story using these prompts: a male main character, the genre is a shifter romance set in a futuristic time, and there’s a clothes iron as a random object.
