Lies and Half Truths

We’ve been taking you through Cephalopod Sign, the first part of my YA Fantasy novel, "The Adventures of Woodrow the Wicked." (Which, incidentally, is now available for download on Amazon and will be free from April 1st through April 5th.) At this point in the story, Woodrow has set the giant cephalopod against those rotten old salvagers, but has unwittingly endangered the life of his new friend, the mysterious pirate girl. Meanwhile, Tambroline has managed to steer clear of Iplio's wrath. But now what's god up to? And can Woodrow save his new friend before she’s drowned by the giant tentacled monster? Will he be eaten by the monster himself? There's only on way to find out: listen to the fourth and final episode of Cephalopod Sign!

Season 2, Episode 8: Cephalopod Sign, Part 3

On the podcast, we’ve been taking you through Cephalopod Sign, the first part of my forthcoming YA fantasy novel, "The Adventures of Woodrow the Wicked." If you haven’t heard parts 1 and 2, go back and listen to them now. Otherwise you wont know what’s going on in this episode. On the last episode Woodrow agreed to help rid the salvage area of the Giant Hermit Cephalopod living there, but now that he’s made the plunge into the beast’s watery habitat, he’s having second thoughts. Meanwhile, his pet greatcat, Tambroline, is still lost in the jungle, and what’s more, she’s found herself testing her wits against an enigmatic supernatural being. Will the two live to see each other again?

He’s just been taken prisoner by the island’s sole inhabitants, a couple of degenerate salvagers, but has proposed a deal in exchange for his freedom.

Season 2, Episode 6: Cephalopod Sign, Part 1

I wrote a book. It’s a fantasy adventure novel for young adults (or adults who still feel young) and it’s called The Adventures of Woodrow the Wicked. Now it’s not available yet, but it will be soon. I’ll keep you updated.

To celebrate the upcoming release of The Adventures of Woodrow the Wicked, I’m featuring the first section of the novel here on the podcast. It makes a great short story--which I’m calling “Cephalopod Sign.” I'll be releasing a new episode of the four-parter every two weeks. So keep listening!
