I’m an author, journalist, and radio show host. I interview authors, artists, and entertainers. I have been a freelance journalist for the Savannah Morning News since 2014. I began self-publishing horror fiction in 2018, and have one short story published with Crone Girls Press.
I founded The Savannah Quill May 13, 2016. The Savannah Quill connects writers and readers to promote literacy. With that, I have hosted several conventions, which were not a great turn out, and changed the format last year to Savannah Authors Expo. We had an incredible time with a smaller and more intimate venue.
I started Books and Brews Savannah in November 2018 as a charitable event to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald Charities of the Coastal Empire. Partnering with local authors and SouthBound Brewing Company, we raised $500 last year for the House.
This year I started Valhalla Books as my publishing imprint of The Savannah Quill Publishing House as a way to separate the non-profit events from the for-profit publishing industry. Our first horror anthology is called The Devil’s Due, where nothing is ever as it seems. I rescheduled the release to this fall in October.
As a fiction author, my goal is to become financially independent with my work. I am working diligently to restructure my professional habits as well as my work habits with my writing.
Please tune in today for the interview with Crone Girls Press publisher Rachel Brune.
Crone Girls Press #publisher @rachelabrune joins me today at 3pm EST on @wruu_107.5_savannah to talk about their premier #horror #anthology Stories We Tell After Midnight. You don’t want to miss this terrifying show today!
Growing up, Rachel A. Brune drove her mother nuts by trying out a new hobby every week, from weaving to street hockey to piano to karate. Told to pick one thing and stick with it, she decided to become a writer … and keep trying out new hobbies from fiber spinning to muay thai to medieval recreation and even fencing. Hey, it all counts as research, right?
Her first paying gig as a writer came when Rachel enlisted in the Army Reserve as a military journalist. Armed with pen, paper, camera, and weapon, she spent five years—including two tours in Iraq—writing and publishing stories about the men and women serving in the Army. After five years, and a few more hobbies here and there, Rachel left the field of military journalism and commissioned as an active duty military police officer. She now writes long and short fiction, is an active member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, and is training for her first International-distance triathlon.
Rachel’s goal is to write engaging, entertaining fantasy set in contemporary times, peopled with characters who are flawed but unforgettable. Although she no longer writes Army news stories, she still aims to bring the military she has lived and experienced to life for reader, to do her small part to bridge the military-civilian divide.
I had the pleasure of interviewing best selling author Michael Sorensen today.
Michael Sorensen is the best selling author of I Hear You : The Surprisingly Simple Skill Behind Extraordinary Relationships joined host Adam Messer to discuss his book, validation, empathetic listening skills, and relationship building.
