GOWM 8 - Interview with Philippa Ballantine

Download: GOWM_008.mp3

Episode 8 is an interview with Philippa Ballantine. Philippa, or "Pip" to her friends far and wide, is THE premiere podcast author from New Zealand. In addition to her own acclaimed novels and podcast versions of those novels; she has appeared as a voice actor on a number of other podcast dramas. She is truly a delight as writer, voice actor, and interview guest :)

I was honored for this podcast to be an official internet stop for promoting Philipa's new book. I’m pretty stoked about the book release of “Geist” … especially after reading the first chapter preview – http://www.booksoftheorder.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/sample_geist1.pdf . For more of the Geist tour you can go to http://www.pjballantine.com/about/appearances/ with dates. I think you will be in for a treat for all the tour “stops”.

Update: The free preview of chapter 2 is now available at http://www.booksoftheorder.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Geistsample2.pdf

And if you are interested in the site for “Geist”, it’s at http://www.booksoftheorder.com/ with a link to order the book on Amazon. And yes, I made my pre-order, and I am waiting anxiously.

Update: The Geist book trailer is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wYR3WgZUCk

You can share your own paranormal experience with the world on the “Geist” site (anonymously if you’d prefer) by emailing motherabbey@booksoftheorder.com – more details on the “Geist” web site.

Site updates



I've created an on-line store at http://gowmainframe.spreadshirt.com/ . It is the site to order your own "Super-Geek" t-shirt or "Geek Out!" ball cap. I make nothing on the sales, but I liked my own shirt so much, I though some of you might like one too.

If you buy one, I'd love it if you'd send me a picture. Also, if there are any products that you think I need to add to the site, let me know.

In other news, I finally registered http://geekoutwithmainframe.com and http://gowmainframe.com so you can reach this site with those URLs. Eventually, I'd like to upgrade to a WordPress site; so these URLs should always get you to the current site.
