Episode 201 Cake Flamenco/Jeff Goldblum (with Gillian Best & Helen McClory)

Hey, we’re back! The Paperchain Podcast returns for another ten episodes of talk with writers and artists, and brand new short stories, poems and songs.

In this episode I talked with Gillian Best and Helen McClory about setting and identity in their novels, and their shared experiences of DIY promotion for their debut novels. Gillian is the author of The Last Wave, and Helen wrote the novel Flesh of the Peach. Both are published by Scottish publisher Freight Books.

During the course of the interview Helen discusses how much easier it was to organise a tour of seven US cities than a single book launch in London, Gillian redesigns the British Citizenship Test, and both writers read brand new stories based on the prompts Cake Flamenco, and Jeff Goldblum.

Stick around at the end of the episode for some bonus content from the interview.
