FridayFix • Hollywood, Suckas!

On this week’s FridayFix Scott and I recount our recent trip to Los Angeles to make the rounds with all the media-making folks we know, love or would love to work with soon.  We’ve been at this while, and I think we’re still learning with every trip.

Doctor: Sigler Would Be ‘Healthiest Author Ever’ So Buy His Stuff

You guys! You guys! The craziest thing just hapened. On December 14, Actual For-Real Presidential Candidate Donald Trump released a letter from his physician stating that “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” NPR showed the whole letter as an image.

To put it mildly, Trump’s doctor thinks the Future Dark President is in really, really good shape (he can’t be the Future Dark Overlord, because that’s me, fools). I mean, it’s almost as if someone asked the doctor to write a glowing letter that isn’t the least bit hyperbolic.

Here’s where it gets weird — my doctor also released a letter about me on the same day Trump’s doc released the letter about him! Insane coincidence, right? In the interest of full disclosure, I decided to follow the lead of my idol — The Donald — and show my letter to the world. After all, I want you to know that I won’t die on you in mid-series, like George R. R. Martin most assuredly will.

THE REPORTER Episode #2

Star reporter Yolanda Davenport has been tasked by GFL Commissioner Rob Froese to get the real story behind the murder of Grace McDermot. Krakens runningback Ju Tweedy was accused of that murder, an event that almost got him killed by Orbiting Death owner and crimelord Anna Villani, and led to Ju joining the Ionath Krakens. In just her first few hours on the case, Yolanda has already been threatened by Quyth Warrior Marik the Covetous, who may be connected to Krakens owner Gredok the Splithead. Why would Gredok get in the way of finding out the truth about McDermot’s murder, and Ju’s possible guilt?

FridayFix • BLUE BALLS live

This has to be one of the most-fun things ARealGirl and I have ever done on this podcast.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/149_FridayFix___BLUE_BALLS_live_reading.mp3

For SiglerFest2k15, we wrote a script for Pookie Chang’s BLUE BALLS cop series. Those of you who know the name “Pookie Chang” have read my novel NOCTURNAL (and if you haven’t read that, you’re only hurting yourself, so get on that). We drafted readers from the Junkies in attendance, then went at it for a live reading. Listen in, my friends, to 15 minutes of hilarity and general stumbly confusion.

ALIVE Episode #17

In the last episode, Em discovered her true purpose in life — to be a receptacle for a much older version of herself, a 1,000-year-old monster that created Em to be overwitten. Em refuses to be a victim, and she refuses to be erased. In this episode, she must rally the Birthday Children to face this horrifying reality, and prepare to fight back.

ALIVE Episode #15

In a quest to find a weapon that can defeat the monsters who took Bello, Em has led her friends to a place that Bishop and Gaston discovered earlier — the place where Bishop found the spear.

FridayFix #141: Scott’s trip to NASA Stennis

FDØ watches RS-25 rocket test: takes world-domination notes

I was invited by NASA Social to watch a test of the RS-25 rocket engine, which once drove the Space Shuttle program and is now a main element of the Space Launch System (SLS). Watch this bad boy go from -400 to 6,000 freakin’ degrees in a matter of seconds, then instantly freeze back up again when the burn is done. Amazing stuff. Thank you, NASA!

COOL LINKS!

All teams want that trophy! Learn more at http://scottsigler.com/ld-products

We’re sixteen days from the launch of the NFL 2015 campaign. If you’re an NFL fan, then you — like me — are unavoidably thinking that this is the year for your team. Don’t lie, fool, I can tell you’re thinking of a possible 10-6 record, maybe even 12-4, a trip to the playoffs, a couple of […]

ALIVE Episode #9

Em and the others were shocked to run into a pig. Desperate for food, the kids made the instant decision to kill the pig, but it escaped, biting Latu in the shoulder and badly wounding her as it did. Against Em’s orders, Bishop ran after the pig, leaving Em no choice but to follow him. They tracked the wounded animal’s to a room with something the kids have never seen before — plants, a dense wall of brambly thicket. The pig’s blood trail leads through a shallow tunnel gnawed through that thicket, so that’s where Bishop and Em will go, too.

FridayFix • Author Jason Hough talks
about his new novel ZERO WORLD

Published in rapid succession, Jason M. Hough’s first three novels, THE DARWIN ELEVATOR, THE EXODUS TOWERS, and THE PLAGUE FORGE, earned comparisons to James S. A. Corey and John Scalzi. Hough returns with ZERO WORLD, a riveting near-future spy thriller described as “James Bond meets INCEPTION.” Jason sat down with Scott to talk about becoming an “instant best-seller,” writing schedules, and juggling family needs with his role as a full-time writer.
