I had a ton of fun talking about writing, fantasy, the Dragon’s Brood Cycle, and a host of tangentially related topics with Michael J. Sanford on episode 13 of his Introverted Indie Author Podcast. If you’re an indie author, a fan of fantasy or literature in general, or just find listening to writers discuss the creative process enjoyable, this is a great show to check out. Might I also recommend episode #10 with the up and coming fantasy author Mara Mahan.
This is amazing, and I desperately want to see it succeed. For years, I’ve been frustrated by the lack of access to comics for those, such as myself, with visual impairments. New Worlds is seeking to change that. They already have a few comics available in audio. I’ve read both issues of Winter, and both the formula and the story itself are fantastic. Even better, they’re charging the typical comic book pricing of $3 per issue, which is, frankly, a steal. Let’s give these guys all the support we can and make it possible to have access to more titles in the future.
Thousands of people around the world would like to read comic books and can’t! People think comics are a visual medium, so the visually impaired can’t ever enjoy the experience. We’re here to fix that!
The above is true, and it reminds me very much of the feeling toward touch screens when the iPhone first came out. Eight years later and now iOS is among the most useful and accessible computing operating systems in history for the blind and visually impaired.
Let’s make this happen!
