This week’s episode is brought to you by the Executioners– the new book by Jason Cordova & Matt Novotny
Within the Galactic Union, the Peacemakers settle squabbles between guilds, hunt criminals, and settle disputes where regular mercenary units are deemed problematic. They are the elite, trained to be the best peacekeeping force in the known universe.
When the task is too much for a Peacemaker to handle, they send an Enforcer. Stronger, faster, and tougher than the average Peacemaker, Enforcers are a one-man SWAT team who make even the toughest criminal tremble in fear. These terrifying nightmares of walking death do not plead for peace—they make it, and damn the corpses they stack up along the way.
But what happens when even an Enforcer isn’t enough?
You call the Executioners.
From Jason Cordova and Matt Novotny, coming April 29, 2022 – The Executioners. Available exclusively on Amazon

All the tax talk reminds me how nice it would be to have the FairTax passed and 16th repealed.
As for Larry being slow paced: I thought this ONCE, and that’s the start of Son of the Black Sword. It’s interesting slowness and hardly boring, but it’s hard to have nested flashbacks that are longer than a joke not feel slow. Once that hump is over, the train has no brakes.
Jack any chance for a writers update in May? Just nice to know how things are going. Also helps keep the wiki current =)
Signs point to yes
(Oh- and thank you for the work you do on the Wiki!!)
Its not just me, but glad to help.
I don’t know if this datapoint helps, but I’m listening to your podcast and you mentioned that your collaborations don’t sell as well at first. The reason I delayed reading your collaboration with Hoyt is that I didn’t realize that it was on the main storyline. I don’t know why I had that impression, but my reaction was that it was like the Ringo novel or the short stories, and I could sort-of get to it when I got to it. (I delayed reading the Ringo novel because I heard the preview on the audiobook and I thought Chad sounded like a jerk. I enjoyed the series as a whole once I read it, but still kind-of think Chad was a jerk)
Jack- As an FYI this episode hasn’t shown up on Google Podcasts as of yet.
I enjoyed this podcast. I like when you guys get down to the nuts and bolts of being professional writers–the business side of things is the most interesting and helpful part of the podcast for me. Lots to think about. And I enjoy your personal stories of what worked and didn’t work in your writing careers. I’m someone you guys would consider a hobby writer. I do everything myself. I write because I can’t help myself, and because my book sales supplement my income. However, my military career that has provided for my family and given me a comfortable middle-class lifestyle is coming to an end due to my refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine. So I’m hoping to push my writing to the next level where it can actually support us. I’m not sure how viable that is but I’m giving myself six months to try to make it work. My biggest concern at this point is health insurance. How do writers with families get affordable health insurance? I’m also looking forward to any discussions on indie writers who are selling enough books to pay the mortgage. Keep up the great work, Larry and Steve! I look forward to listening to more episodes on the treadmill at the gym.
AT 20:00 where you talk about how in a David Weber novel one expects detailed descriptions. To the point where David describing things has become it’s own trope.
One of the absolute best things on the internet is “How David Weber orders a Pizza”.
