And comment on his interview for a chance to win one or more of his Adventurers Wanted books or audio books. Share your own hook idea and we’ll enter your name in our drawing twice!

Have fun 🙂

Our first male guest ever, fantasy writer M. L. Forman, is here to tell us his tale of entering the published world. His wonderful series, Adventurers Wanted, has two published novels in it… so far. Slathbog’s Gold and The Horn of Moran. Jocelyn hosts. Mark was a lot of fun to have on the podcast, and he had a lot of good insights. Listen now…
