Interview with Tee Morris
Author of the podcast novel Billybub Baddings and the case of the singing sword that you can download and listen to on your iPod or iPhone or whatever mp3 player. I listened to the story and thoroughly enjoyed it. Tee mixes the fantasy genre with the private eye, Sam Spade type novel based in Al Capone era, Chicago USA. I like the hats off to Bilbo Baggins in the name used for the title character and the humour doesn’t stop there. Billybub gets up to things you wouldn’t expect from a four foot one dwarf from another realm. Chicago doesn’t know what hit it.
“Chicago, 1929. There are a thousand stories in the naked city; and when you’re a dwarf at four-foot-one, they all look that much taller.”
It is The Era of Prohibition, where crime runs rampant in the streets and a city divided into territories serves as the ultimate prize.
Somewhere in this Underworld of Chicago, an enchanted weapon holds the key to ending The Gangland Wars. In the wake of The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, only one is man enough to stand up against Al Capone…
…a four-foot-one dwarf named Billibub Baddings.
Get ready for The Lord of the Rings written by Mickey Spillane! Poking fun at the hard-boiled detective novel, Fantasy mainstays, and even the legend of Chicago’s 1920 underworld, MOREVI’s Tee Morris returns to the podiobook arena…and this time, he’s bringing a few friends along for the ride!
The art of writing
In the interview we chat about ways of writing, getting the ideas and the stories out there for the public to enjoy. Talking about getting an agent and a publisher and the effect of those things on your writing career. Of course seeing a Billybub is a character in the podcast novel we talk a little about podcasting and how it can be a way to build an audience and a following. J.C. Hutchins (Seventh Son) and Scott Sigler (Ancestor) both get a mention during the interview.
Tee is a Mac user and although we don’t speak much about hardware, Mac usage does get more than a mention. We both are so impressed with the excellent Scrivener writers software and highly recommend it to anyone that writes, either for a living or for pleasure. Keith the author of Scrivener will be impressed with what we have to say about the software.
Enjoy the podcast interview.
