media Mysteries now in a boxed set
We've put together Gail's two media mystery novels -- The Lion's Share of the Air Time and A Bird in the Sand -- in an Ebook boxed set, now available on Amazon as a Kindle book (which can be read on any device.)
The Lion's Share of the Air Time was a quarter finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough First Novel Award in 2014. A Bird in the Sand was a winner in the Royal Palm Literary Awards in Florida in 2020. These are crime stories without torture, graphic violence or psychological terror.
We've been working on The Brainwave Podcast, and if you check out the podcast page on this website, you can hear the Introduction and see a Description. We're listed on Spotify, Google Podcasts, IHeartRadio, and Stitcher, and are waiting on confirmation from Apple Podcasts. The focus is the creative spark -- that charmed moment when you get an idea and you just know it could be good. What do you do next? How do (or did) you take it from the brainwave to the finished thing? What can you do if the ideas stop coming? How does an author, an artist, a composer, a designer, a chef, a choreographer, a sculptor or an architect nurture their creativity?
We hope you'll join us every Sunday after 5 pm for a new episode. Launching August 1st.
