I've been a member of The Velvet for a few years. During that time, I've come to respect the pool of talent over there not just for their writing chops, but for their reading tastes as well. They are my taste-makers.
I am glad to now be able to share that camaraderie with you. Episode #001 of The Velvet Podcast just went live a few hours ago. Me, Gordon Highland, and Rob Parker talk about a few things writing, specifically regarding writing communities.
I look forward to the future of this podcast. Please, give it a listen. Subscribe via Feedburner, Podcast Alley, RSS, or iTunes (coming soon). And don't worry, it won't be my lame voice on the Podcast for every episode.
