Workshop Episode 39 (Guest Host: Cecilia Tan)

November 27, 2012 Posted by Dave Robison

The Roundtable Podcast, Workshop Episode 39, with Cecilia Tan and Nobilis Reed Cecilia Tan – author, visionary, and activist who’s passions are as diverse as the literary works they inspire – returns to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to infuse this Workshop episode with he unique and eloquent brand of literary awesomeness. We are joined by Guest Writer Nobilis Reed, a veteran author in his own right with a wealth of stories, podcasts, and audio adventures to his  name. His erotic noire steampunk fantasy (yeah, that’s right… a four-genre mash-up. One might say a veritable orgy of genres *rimshot*) inspires a vigorous discussion from all sides of the table, which leads – as always – to a mighty hoard of Literay Gold. (And, after you fill your pockets, there’s even more writerly goodness in Cecilia’s Showcase Episode!)
