10/24/13 #NALitChat No. 62 - TRANSCRIPTS

Great pre-Halloween chat last night! We talked with New Adult horror author @MichWritesBooks & NA thriller author @Mia_Thomp --and the ladies rocked the house!

Among other things, we talked about what scares us, how to effectively bring genre into NA, and debated if M.Night Shyamalan movies are more horror, thriller, or something in between. :)

Also, if you'd like to know more about Mia and Michelle's work, check out these interviews orchestrated by our own Amy Evans.

Next Thursday is Halloween for many of us, so no chat! We'll crank things back up the first week of November by digging into some NaNoWriMo discussion. Hope to chat with you again then,

NA Lit Chat - Get to Know This Week's Guests!

We're starting a new way to meet the writers in the NA community who come on our show. Each week we'll be doing video interviews with our guest, and I'd like to give a big thank you to Michelle Muto and Mia Thompson for being the first to sign on. 

So check out these videos and learn more about Michelle and Mia before or after the live chat on Thursday Oct. 24 (9 PM Eastern) when we'll talk about the thriller and horror genres in NA.

10/10/13 #NALitChat No. 60 - TRANSCRIPTS

Hey, gang! Yes, you saw that correctly--our 60th chat! Considering I didn't have vision beyond our 5th chat when I started doing this, I'd say that's an accomplishment. Or at least a testament to how dedicated we (everyone who chats with us each week) to sharing our passion for New Adult literature.

And what a chat #60 was! We NA author Ashley Poston and cartoonist Jarad Greene on to chat about creative collaboration with us. Why? Because Jarad and Ashley are working on a webcomic together. Besides being a super-cool project, they're a great example of how to marry our talents in interesting ways with other creative types.

So dial up the transcripts for lots of insight on working with other artists, and maybe even learn a little about how graphic storytelling comes to life.

This was an audio-Twitter chat, so be sure to go to the YouTube audio link and listen along as you read the Twitter transcript to get the whole experience.

Come back and chat with us next Thursday as we'll be sharing book blurbs and product descriptions from our favorite novels! 

Until then, have a great weekend,

~EJW~

10/3/13 #NALitChat No. 59 - TRANSCRIPT

Hey, gang! Holy community action, we're knocking on the door of our 60th meeting of New Adult Literature Chat! This thing has evolved in ways I never expected over the last year + of chats and I'm proud to say it's going stronger than ever.

Last night was an awesome example of that as we had so many writers sharing their 1st lines and generally spent some time discussing the importance of starting a story off on the right foot.

Join us this coming Thursday as we'll have authors Dawn Pendleton and Ashley Poston (both regulars in the NA Lit Chat crowd) on to discus co-authoring. Teaming up with other authors for writing and marketing has become a huge resource at our disposal in the digital age, so we'll be sure to pick their brains about how to successfully pull it off.

As far as the transcripts go, this was an audio-Twitter chat, so be sure to go to the YouTube audio link and listen along as you read the Twitter transcript to get the whole experience.

Have a great weekend, and hope to chat with you again next week!

9/26/13 #NALitChat No. 58 - TRANSCRIPT

Hey, gang! Very fun chat last night. We kicked things off an hour earlier than usual with our guest Kate Tilton (who runs the awesome #k8chat on Twitter) to talk about Indie publishing. Specifically, we  talked about outsourcing things like editing, covers, and social media duties to publishing professionals.

LOTS of great information shared on Twitter as well, making for a jam-packed hour of chat.

Remember, this was an audio-Twitter chat, so be sure to go to the YouTube audio link and listen along as you read the Twitter transcript (reading from bottom to top) to get the whole experience.

Also, for some reason Storify ate our transcript from last week, so you'll find TWO audio transcripts below.

Hope you have a great weekend, and chat with you again next week!

9/12/13 #NALitChat No. 56 - TRANSCRIPTS

Hey, gang! We got up to covering covers (?) at the chat last night. We had the talented, and super helpful, cover designer Kat Vancil on to share tips and tricks for creating a fantastic book cover.

We also spent some time checking out covers from the Twitter audience, as well as some of our favorites from the broader book world. 

Be sure to head over to the www.newadultauthors.org forum for links to everything we looked at during the show, as well as additional covers shared by the community.

Remember, this was an audio-Twitter chat, so be sure to go to the YouTube audio link and listen along as you read the Twitter transcript (reading from bottom to top) to get the whole experience.

We hope you'll join us next week as we'll be talking traditional publishing: contracts and pro/con on large and small publishers with a couple of fantastic NA authors who've been around the block a couple of times! (Innuendo intended... we are a New Adult chat, after all ;)

Until then, have a great weekend!
