WOW! We collected enough comments, questions, and overall opinions from you, the listeners, to make this show our second Listener Appreciation Show! We got some questions on Kindle, Scrivener, and Book Reviews, but we also got questions on topics we have never tackled before on mic.
And Pip gets not one but TWO drop-in’s of her own…

Ben from Florida asks close on the same question as emails from Valkyrie Page and Chris Forshner on how we collaborate and the creative process between the two of us.
Tee talks about Pip’s strengths and then discusses his own.
How other authors collaborate against what Pip and Tee do.
Melissa Hay surprises us with a call, and brings up the topic of book bloggers and how authors and publishers are keeping the peace, at least for now…
Terry Arman asks us what we thought of the promo he cut for us…but has us at a loss.
Bleah! Between the Power Bug that Sonic Boom brought home from school and final reviews of The Janus Affair, Tee and Pip are finally back behind the mic, bringing a perspective on book bloggers, book reviews, and keeping it classy in light of a bad review.
It’s been a month! Where have these two been?! Well, Tee & Pip have been tackling deadlines, and that struck them as a good topic for the next Shared Desk. So join these two in a deep dive into the wonderful (no seriously, wonderful) world of deadlines.

What are you sitting on, Pip? (No, it’s not a euphemism!)
Running down a laundry list of what’s happened between episodes
The Janus Affair is now off to New York!

What is it about being sick around deadlines?! (It’s something Pip and Tee do well.)
With the 2011 Con Season behind them and friends jumping into the writerly madness of November, Pip and Tee spend the show looking at NaNoWriMo or the National Novel Writing Month. They got rants, they got opinions, and they got their own bits of advice for those brave enough to jump into the competition.
To all those taking the NaNoWriMo challenge — good luck!
