Mur Lafferty's BlouseThere are some people in the world of podcast fiction who flat-out work their asses off. People like me, who absolutely refuse to quit, no matter how long it takes or how many obstacles they face. One of those blue-collar, butt-kicking authors is Mur Lafferty, author of the Heaven series and Playing for Keeps, which is out in print on August 25, 2008.

In fact, I think that Mur is an awful lot like me, just with a better rack.  For years now, Mur's "I Should Be Writing" podcast has been mandatory listening for aspiring authors. She really gets into the nitty-gritty, both talking to other writers and in exposing her own painful quest to become a pro author. If you want to be an author for fun or for profit, listen to this podcast.

Mur is also an anchor of the fiction podcasting community.  She is one of the driving forces of the Parsec Award, the Oscar of fiction podcasting (and she's friends with Matt Fucking Wallace, who wins every goddamn Parsec that comes out, so I think there's some chicanery there, but I digress ...).

And the Podcast Fiction Hottie™ is making a run at Amazon.com on August 25. I know, you've seen this strategy before -- hey, it's what we podcast authors do to stay motivated and keep kicking out your free smack. So, consider supporting Mur with a book purchase on August 25. Not only is it a great story, she's earned the right for a day in the sun. 

Plus, look at that cover ... I like to think that's Mur's rack being exposed. Which is why I'll be buying multiple copies. I'm a simple man, so sue me.

Three cheers for Mighty Mur!

I love Heaven, although I have to admit I have yet to listen to PFK, but its coming up on my podcast rotations.  Besides anything involving Mur and ripped open blouses has to be good right?

I think any book with a young lady exposing her chest has got to be good.

OMG!

Muir is bald? (FDO did say, "Mur is an awful lot like me, just with a better rack.") Seriously, this is in the queue now, and a certain other podcaster pushed some free print out--I have that as well. Looking forward to it once I clear the plate of some other pressing listening material.

I really like reading blogs! I like it when experiences are shared inside a nice manner, making readers relate to the entire content.
