Your support will go towards…

  • First and foremost, I’ll be using this money to pay for a professional podcast editor. This means better audio quality for you and a considerable amount of time freed up for me to develop more bookish content for you.
  • I’ll also be using this money to cover the general expenses of producing a podcast (hosting fees, recording software, recording equipment, etc).

    Oh no! How could you not like The Great Alone?!? You did not finish it! How could you not? The story has everything: backdrop, memorable characters, pain, heartbreak, warmth, love, community, adversity, landscape detail, descriptions, tension, humor, beauty, determination, hope, loss of hope, and a conclusion that isn’t all sweetly wrapped up. It’s astounding that it “didn’t do it for you”. I strongly suggest you start over and give it the full reading – then share your thoughts.
