Introducing Radio Encendido

In October 2018, my pal Paul Metaxas and I launched a new radio program, Radio Encendido.

RE is at once a satire of radio and a celebration of the medium. Paul and I write all the music, skits, and advertisements you hear on the show. Now and then we invite guests to play an instrument or a character; otherwise, we perform all music and voices. When we need ambient sounds, we load up the mics, go on location, and record them. This is not the quickest way to produce radio, but for us, it is the most satisfying.

Radio Encendido airs on the Arizona Community Radio Network. It is also available on iTunes and YouTube.

Even If It Kills Me Wins IBPA Silver Medal

Last weekend I was in Austin, Texas, for the thirtieth annual Independent Book Publishers Association Benjamin Franklin Awards. I’m pleased to share that Even If It Kills Me won a silver medal.

Doni and I thought this book might earn a cult following. It never occurred to us that it would win an award. We’d like to thank the IBPA and its judges, our awesome team at YMAA, and of course our readers.
