So, you may have noticed that my blog has been sort of light on blogs the last few weeks.
Perhaps longer than that.
The truth is, I've been devoting the bulk of my writing energy to my vampire trilogy, which, if I've calculated my efforts correctly, will kick off with Book One in 2014. But, I haven't only been writing. I also started a podcast.
It's called The Martin Lastrapes Show Podcast Hour. It's the show that may or may not be an hour long depending on your perception of time and how much I've got to say! I officially launched the show January of 2014 and it's been steadily building an audience ever since. I'm really proud of the show, as I've had great conversations with writers, such as S. Kay Murphy, and writer/directors, such as Tim Chizmar. When I don't have a guest on the show, I'm usually talking with my (occasional) co-host, Chanel Chakko.
Most recently (as of this writing), I posted a great conversation with Academy Award-winning visual effects artist, Jeryd Pojawa. We talk about his film career, which includes movies such as Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Godzilla. We also talked about some of the directors he's worked with, such as James Cameron and Tim Burton.
Jeryd even gave me a Godzilla egg which was used in the actual movie! I've had a great time doing the show, so if you haven't already checked it out, then don't let another hour pass you by without listening to The Martin Lastrapes Show Podcast Hour!
