Storypunks Podcast

Nov 8, 2017

I have decided to give a quick update at the beginning of every show, so this is when I'll describe what I'm working on. 

I wasn't sure I'd do this at first, but the timing is nice because I'm entering my "Structural Phase" of a pretty hefty work in progress.

Listen to the episode or visit my website ( for a description of my work in progress.  If you'd like to get involved as a beta reader with input on a story, please fill out the form at

Interview With Cyberpunk and Biopunk Author Dan Wells

Dan Wells has written many novels and other fictional works you can find at

Here's a list of questions I asked Dan in Episode 2.

  • Me: In this show, we discuss "the punks", and today we're focusing on cyberpunk. Since everyone defines them a little bit differently, what's your take on the defining the term and what do you feel qualifies as cyberpunk?
  • Me: Tell us about each of your cyberpunk books or series and why readers should check them out. Specifically, what themes do your books focus on?
  • Me: As I've begun reading Bluescreen, I'm blown away by how well you write a cast of diverse characters. What kind of research, tools, or other planning goes into pulling that off as an author?
  • Twitter: Sean @SeanTaillon  - What evolutions he's gone through in regards to storytelling. Personal eureka moments in regards to overall craft or a specific story.
  • Twitter: Ben Lane Hodson @BenLaneHodson  - How do you do your tech research for your cyberpunk books?
  • Phone: Robert from Denver - How do you keep an ongoing series fresh with new ideas? Also, writing can be difficult, so I'm looking for inspiration about the payoff. What's the most rewarding thing for you about finishing so many stories?
  • Me: Anyone who visits the About tab on Dan's website can read some really fun and more in-depth biographical tidbits than I covered in the bio. I found myself blown away by everything you've been up to, Dan! So, what's your secret for writing productivity? How do you get so much done?!
  • Me: Why is cyberpunk important right now? Why does the world today need more cyberpunk?

Look forward to another interview next week! I am so excited to be sharing these interviews with you.
