My feelings on challenges like NaNoWriMo made perfectly clear in this guest post for Horror Tree.

I regret nothing.

Sometimes you just get into a fun, free-flowing rhythm with an interviewer, when everyone is having fun and is working on the same wavelength. That was absolutely the vibe with the guys at the Sci Fi Saturday Night Podcast.

Take a listen as we discuss my newest book Between Conversations: Tales From the World of Ryuujin, available September 25th.

A conversation I had with the Beyond the Trope podcast! I love having a chat with passionate, fun-loving members of the writing community. We talk my books, my process, and my love of poutine and how to make it right. (Hint: avoid shredded cheese!)

I decided to have a bit of fun, teach myself some rudimentary filmmaking techniques, and share my journey and writing knowledge. I hope to make more, but even this, as just a thank you for being with me for the last four years, was a ton of fun.

This was a conversation a long time in the making. Speaking with local writing guru, Aurora Award winner, podcaster extraordinaire, and man-about-town Josh Pantalleresco and his amazing ‘Just Joshing’ podcast from this year’s When Words Collide. Listen to us as we sit in a bar, have a drink, and talk about how a realistic view of the world and being a family man guides my writing career. It’s the most heartfelt reason I’ve heard for why I am the Anti-Author.

…also sports…

More media coming soon!

A fresh assortment of gettin’ myself out there today! I had a great conversation with Lisa Kessler to start off my new year on the podcast Book Lights Radio. Its always a good sign when the time flies by and you want to talk more!

Back where it all began, with my writing cohort and all around great guy Konn Lavery! Years ago after meeting at a writer’s conference he asked to interview me, and that was the first time anybody gave a damn what I had to say about writing. Be sure to check out his amazing, dark, gritty work for yourself.

It was a quiet Summer, but this Fall has seen a lot of action with media! One of the most extensive conversations I’ve had in some time was with Amy Bernal on her ‘My Books – My World’ blog. Conversations about my techniques, advise for writers, and who I believe the most underrated anime character of the 90s is can be found HERE.

For a change of pace that isn’t just me rambling on about myself, I had a lot of fun with this in-character interview with Cassandra Penticoff, where she spoke with Nixon Ash, co-star of my series ‘Catching Hell’. How well do I write a Scottish accent? Come find out below!

And finally, I was extremely excited to be back on the mic with the very talented Tim Niederriter, talking world building and other great story stuff.

Fresh on the heels of the release of Catching Hell Part 1 comes a really enjoyable interview I had the pleasure of taking part in with author and world-building guru Tim Niederriter. Other than our feelings on #NaNoWriMo, we’re very kindred spirits! Not heard: the extensive pre-show conversation where we just talked shop for about as long as we actually recorded something:

Alive After Reading Episode 49 – Marc Watson

March 8th, 2018: Wow… I’ve been a busy boy lately. It’s nice to be popular!

I’m very excited to let you all hear my first actual radio interview with Jackie Tuinstra Harrison from CJRU The Scope, Ryerson University’s local radio station based out of Toronto, my home in another life, and the likely reason I’m so insufferably cocky:

Also, I had a wonderful chat with UK book blogger David Ellis on his interview blog Too Full To Write, my first overseas interview! We talk about casting Death Dresses Poorly, my literary inspirations, and the possible side effects of getting punched in the head too many times in my youth:

Also, I had a (figurative) sit-down with Mandy Eve Barnett to talk about how even with a Pulitzer I think The Shipping News is undated, and why I really should consider writing under a pseudonym:

February 22nd, 2018: With ‘Death Dresses Poorly’ building up more and more steam all the time, and ‘Catching Hell Pt 1’ set to arrive next month, I’ve been lucky enough to engage in some great interviews lately! Check them out here:

November 28th, 2017: I had the chance to talk to host TJ Washburn on his ‘Average Joe’s Drive In’ podcast! It’s my very first live interview, and it was a great talk about writing, Death Dresses Poorly, and some of my favorite movies. It was a lot of fun and I barely say “um” at all*.

September 19th, 2017: An interview I did November 2016 with the amazingly talented and darkly creative author Konn Lavery. He and I met last year at When Words Collide, and I love following his work.
