What’s an award actually worth? A new episode of DITCH DIGGERS is live!

March 23, 2015

Hey, folks. Live from Morgan Freeman’s half-bath, Campbell Award winning author Mur Lafferty and I are back with a brand new episode of Ditch Diggers, our NSFW podcast about writing as a job.

In this episode Mur and I talk about awards, specifically the Hugos, and what their practical value is to your career as a writer. We even have statistics. That’s right, shit just got real. We also answer email and take questions from Twitter on marketing, small press, contracts, and some other stuff I can’t remember right now, but I do remember I’ve never laughed harder than I did at one of the questions we got during this one.

Next time on DD, Mur will have an interview with the notorious Brianna Wu that is *not* about GamerGate, which is an amazing and rare thing. Also in a future episode of DD we’ll be welcoming Gail Carriger onto the podcast! Mur tells me Gail likes to yell at me when she listens to the show. We’ll find out about what.

And now some random quotes from the episode!

“I’m usin’ the fuckin’ Twitter!”

“That is my new favorite phrase in the history of both written and spoken language.”

“I don’t know when I started being fair, but apparently that’s a thing now.”
