Show Notes

As most of you know, I love doing cons. Why? Well, not only do I get to meet some amazing readers, but I also get to spend time with other amazing authors. The last show I did in 2021 I got the chance to hang out with my next guest for three days of fun and mayhem. This effin’ guy was so much effin’ fun that I’m sure I had more fun than a whole sackfull of Collared Observer Penguins who would rightly tell you to sit back, relax, and get some fucking popcorn, it’s shitshow time. 

Bryan, what, did you just say?

You heard me right. Sit back and grab your thesaurus of expletives, my next guest is Aaron Reynolds, author of Effin’ Birds, A field guide to identification. Aaron, welcome to the effin’ show.

Join us as we find out more about our good friend Aaron and how Effn' Birds came into being.  We will talk about all kinds of cool things.

  • What started first, the jokes or the deep and abiding interest in what birds?
  • I have, for years, and idea for a coffee table book, but it has stalled on me because of the whole novel writing and podcasting thing. Something about needing more time for stuff. But when was it that you knew you had an idea for a coffee table book?
  • How does a coffee table book differ in terms of writing that versus a novel do you think?
  • What things surprised you about writing Effin’ Birds?
  • If you can go back in time, and tell your writer self anything, any bit of advice, what would that be?
  • What bit of advice we were given when we were first starting out that we did not need at all?
  • So you wrote an amazing effn’ book. Then you decided to get into the cards. I think we sometimes forget about the idea of merchandizing outside of just our books. I am curious what led you to the cards.
  • What’s effn’ next for you?
