Mad About Writing
every book has a backstory
Two-for-one writers? We must be mad.
In each episode, author, editor, and podcast host Luanne Smith will introduce you to two well-established writers, then turn the conversation loose.
You want raw shoptalk? We’ve got it.
We give you the audacious, unadulterated stories behind the book flaps.
How do you take your writers?
We'll have interviews for you in four forms. Until then, here are recent titles from Madville.
