First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy
First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy: April 30, 2021

A shout-out to Kelly Robson on the official release of Alias Space! Also, more on the hero’s journey and why some people see women as the reward and so can’t be the hero, and other kinds of objectification.

First Cup of Coffee – May 3, 2021: Craft is heavy on my mind – with thoughts inspired by a talk on making design excellent and weighing that against cost-benefit-risk paradigms from my science background. What does it mean that God is in the details?

First Cup of Coffee – May 4, 2021: How readers (and agents and editors) don’t really know what they want until they get it, a design heuristic analogy from a cool wheelchair. Also a shoutout to Lone Wolf, a new anthology with cowboys and wolf partners!

First Cup of Coffee – May 6, 2021: I’m telling a story about my special earrings and a writer friend who’s lost to us. Also about author professional jealousy and being envious of the shiny others get to have and do, but being aware of the down sides.
