Jake Kerr is a most skilled and accomplished wordsmith. His whole life has focused on weaving words into tapestries of delight, first for the music industry and now (thankfully) in the realms of Speculative Fiction. His works have been featured on Lightspeed Magazine and in numerous anthologies, including the acclaimed “Apocalypse Triptych” and his YA Urban Fantasy “Tommy Black and the Staff of Light” continues to delight audiences of all ages.
With Terry Mixon – author of “Empire of Bones” and “Veil of Shadows” and co-host on the mighty Dead Robots’ Society podcast – as my co-host, we welcome Jake to the Big Chair at the Roundtable and have a truly inspiring 20(ish) minutes of writerly discourse, talking about using all the tools in the tool box, the collaborative nature of critique groups, and more. Writerly goodness is but a mouse-click away, friends! (and I know you’ll be keen for some brainstorming after THIS discussion, so check out Jake’s Workshop Episode airing March 17!).
