I wanted to share a new podcast with you, called “The Shared Desk,” hosted by Tee Morris and Philippa (Pip) Ballantine. They describe the podcast as: “Two Writers, One Podcast, and Various Points-of-View.”
Pip and Tee have a tremendous amount of experience in the publishing industry and have created this new podcast to share what they’ve already learned and what they learn as they continue on their journey. Together they’re a firecracker team, always sure to inform and entertain.
They just aired episode two, (including an episode 0) including an interview with agent Laurie McLean. I highly recommend checking out this podcast to all writers! This is a great opportunity to learn from two awesome people who have been there and done that, are still doing it!
Here are snippets from their bios, just to prove my point.
Philippa (Pip) Ballantine
Her first professional sale was in 1997, and since then she has gone on to produce mostly novel length fiction. In 2006 she became New Zealand’s first podcast novelist, and she has voiced and produced Weaver’s Web, Chasing the Bard, Weather Child and Digital Magic as podiobooks. Her podcasts have been short listed for the Parsec Awards, and won a Sir Julius Vogel award.
She is the author of Geist with Ace Books, with another three books in that series coming out shortly.
Tee Morris began his writing career with his 2002 historical epic fantasy, MOREVI The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana. In 2005 Tee took MOREVI into the then-unknown podosphere, making his novel the first book podcast in its entirety. That experience led to the founding of Podiobooks.com and collaborating with Evo Terra and Chuck Tomasi on Podcasting for Dummies and its follow-up, Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies. He won acclaim and accolades for his cross-genre fantasy-detective Billibub Baddings Mysteries, the podcast of The Case of the Singing Sword winning him the 2008 Parsec Award for Best Audio Drama. Along with those titles, Tee has written articles and short stories for BenBella Books’s Farscape Forever: Sex, Drugs, and Killer Muppets, the podcast anthology VOICES: New Media Fiction, BenBella Books’ So Say We All: Collected Thoughts and Opinions of Battlestar Galactica, and Dragon Moon
