WS 25: Jeff Scott Savage Thrillers and Chillers

This week, Alice hosts as the Writing Snippets crew talks with Jeff about what makes a good thriller or horror. His three rules are brilliant and you should know them. This is our last interview with Jeff and we had a hard time turning off the mic- we could have recorded Jeff and his clever wife for hours. We definitely learned a lot. Thanks Jeff!

WS 24: Self Promotion Jeffery Scott Savage 2

Lillian hosts as Jeff talks about his journey into publication and his ideas on Self promotion. Jeff brilliantly dissects Hunger Games *spoilers*  and you have to hear the reason he feels networking with authors is important- it is not what you think, but we agree with him. Thanks again, Jeff, it was too much fun.
