This one's special, folks -- as a fan of paranormal nonfiction myself, I can't be happier to have secured an interview with the publishing world's most astonishing paranormal polymath.

(This is part of an interview exchange -- I will be appearing on John’s blog in July.) For this interview, we’re going to take a look at the publishing world’s big picture a...Read Full Post »

I meet many authors on Twitter these days, and Russ Hovendick is one such. I offered him an interview in order to ask some tough questions about the job market for young people (and ex-teachers). He's a great friend to veterans, and is giving college scholarships with his own funds. Read on to find out more about both.
