Because even we sometimes get tired of listening to ourselves natter on about this and that, we thought it was high time to involve you via our second netcast.

And really, this time around it is not much—mostly a dry run for the real thing so that we can get our iTunes subscription base set up and so on and so forth. But if you download it, you will be able to hear Michael read to you a paragraph by Raymond Carver. Thrilling, right? Seriously. So give it a listen and subscribe.

Future netcasts will feature both Michael and Chris discussing everything from truly stunning new novels to industry gossip to interviews with Top Writers and Deep Throat sources from within publishing. It is going to be fun. So give us a try, and we’ll have more for you soon.
