S4 Ep 13: Tune that name! All about pseudonyms
A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet...but would he have written that line if he wasn't called Shakespeare? This week Jon, Tom and Dave (or possibly Rod, Jane and Freddy) look into pseudonyms, nom-de-plumes, pen names...and basically just being someone else for a bit. Does your name affect your chances of success? Does it even have an impact on how you write? Join us to find out as the Failing Writers try to become the not-so-failing writers....for at least one chapter. ---------------------------------------- Hosted on Acast.

S4 Ep11: Samuel Burr & The Fellowship of Puzzlemakers
If we were really clever, we'd have written the show notes for this week's episode in the form of a cryptic crossword clue in honour of our guest, Samuel Burr. We spoke to him about his debut novel "The Fellowship of Puzzle Makers", his frankly unbelievable journey to getting published and even had a chat about all things cryptic. But, unfortunately, we're not really clever...so we didn't. Which makes Tom's incredible publishing news even more puzzling! Find Sam's already bestselling novel here [https://www.orionbooks.co.uk/titles/samuel-burr/the-fellowship-of-puzzlemakers/9781398712300/] Or... if you're feeling adventurous, join an exclusive club and be one of the few to buy a copy of Tom's hilarious satire on the world of sales and salespeople...
