I absolutely have fallen in love with Nelson W. Pyles’ voice. I cannot believe how amazing he makes my story, “Leave No Trace”, sound. Then there is Maddie Von Stark’s breathtaking artwork, which captures the essence of the story perfectly. Listen to the podcast – the drumbeats that Pyles adds to the audio are beyond perfect.
You will never look at #BurningMan the same again.
Thanks to the coaxing of the lovely and talented Maddie Holliday Van Stark, my story “Leave No Trace” will be featured on the Friday March 27, 2015 podcast episode #519 of The Wicked Library. The story takes place on a single night during the infamous Burning Man in Black Rock City, NV, and brings new meaning to the word “sacrifice’.
This is the 5th Season of the popular podcast, and last week’s featured author for episode #518 was Bev Vincent. Ms. Von Stark, whose name always makes me envision a wild cowgirl trying to tame horses named Widowmaker (think Slue Foot Sue), will produce original artwork just for the podcast. Her work is dreamy, funky, brilliant, and surreal. Oh, and HORROR-ible. Her work is always supremely, beautifully HORROR-ible.
Von Stark’s partner in literary crime is cute and scruffy Nelson W. Pyles. It is his smooth voice that carries the show, giving listeners the opportunity to sit back and just listen to him read good stories. Here is a recent podcast featuring author Adrian Chamberlin’s story “War Pigs” which is a really tense chiller with one wallop of an ending! Ade’s site is http://www.archivesofpain.com and you can fine his work on Amazon.com or .co.uk as well.
So, please find some time in the next few days to check out The Wicked Library’s archives. For newbies who aren’t too sure how podcasts work – there is a release date for the episode, and then the episode is available for future listening in the archives. All you have to do is go to the website and find the right episode! (PS – don’t forget that SL Schmitz will be Episode #519).
I will post Von Stark’s original artwork for my podcast as soon as it is released.
