A call for support!

I’m taking a moment from my normal want today to bring to mind something that all of us that listen to podcast novels know, but might have forgotten. As you might have guessed from the title, that is supporting your favorite podcast authors. Now, before you turn away, knowing you’ve heard it all before, let […]

with honour

Everyone has heroes. Some choose to honour those they’ve never met. Others choose to honour and show respect for those that first show them honour and/or respect. While I would never choose to tell anyone how to do anything, I choose my heroes carefully. I grew up in a small town in Wyoming. Approximately 5000 […]

Thank you Sar

Many of you are authors. Many of you give as much content away for free as you can. My life would be so much the less if you had not gone this route. I have just finished Owner’s Share, as many of you have. Reminiscing ¬†over the course of Ishmael’s journey, contemplating where he might […]

Podcast Challenge – Part 2

Why? I am currently celebrating the one year anniversary of View from Valhalla. My, how quickly a year goes, and how much things change. When I first started this blog, I had no idea what I would be doing with it. I knew I had opinions (hence the tagline) and I knew I loved social […]

Just the facts…

An interesting article was brought to my attention earlier by a link shared on Twitter. Being interested, I clicked the link and read this article in which the author describes the overall service provides with general accuracy. She then seems to disparage the authors that would be content to give away content for free. […]

thirteen cents

If you are reading this, there is a fair chance you follow me on Twitter, or have been reading my series of Podcast Reviews. If either of those are true, thank you. However, if either of those are true, you’ve also more than likely heard of the tragedy that has struck one of the founders […]

International Podcaster Appreciation Month

I realized recently that while I might want to be a producer, at this point in my life I am a consumer (sigh), and one of the things that I consume most voraciously is podcast fiction. As far as I know, there is no month/week/day set aside to those that give us the fruit of […]

Guilty as charged

Judgemental people drive me crazy. There. I’ve said it. Now, let me explain myself. There have been several times in my life that I’ve been confused, hurt, and/or questioning. During these kinds of times, I think it is natural to ask those that care for you for their opinions. Now, if you ask me for […]


If you’re not following me on Twitter, that is okay. In fact, while I love Twitter and am an admitted tweet addict, I would prefer you not follow me if you’re not going to tweet me up. You see, for me Twitter is all about the conversation. (The social in social media if you please) […]

"If you can't say something nice…."

I don’t know how many of you have seen the Disney cartoon Bambi to the point where you can recall Thumper being prompted by his mom to recite the above title. I can. I can vividly see the little bunny looking quite contrite repeating something that he had (obviously) been told over and over again. […]
