Like a bolt from the blue, the Hobson & Choi Podcast is back on the scene!

I've moving house in the near future and will be without wifi, so internet content from the Nick Bryan/H&C Media Empire will be thin on the ground. But before disappearing into irrelevant meatspace for a bit, I recorded an interview for Writers' Huddle, a subscription-only writing forum run by the excellent author and blogger Ali Luke.

Listen now to hear me talk about H&C, serialisation, self-publishing, writing characters different from yourself and whether I ever considered putting Hobson & Choi into first person. Plus a little news about the status of upcoming H&C books in the outro.

Thanks to Ali for hosting the chat and letting me put it out to the wider internet. Be sure to check out her blog at Aliventures and her own self-published fantasy book Lycopolis. Plus she's on Twitter (obviously) as @aliventures.

If this interview has gotten you interested in the Hobson & Choi darkly comic crime books, you can read more about them at HobsonAndChoi.com and see general bloggery from me at NickBryan.com. Sounds by zagi2 on Freesound as before.

And that, for now, might be it for a wee while...

The conclusion is here! Hobson and Choi face the epilogue of their big wolf-case, while I deal with something even more heartbreaking: the end of the podcast itself. At least you get an extra-length 15 mnute episode before it goes away.

This week, Hobson heads back to the Social Awesome office and shines the spotlight on one of the other suspects. What will he turn up? Meanwhile in the back matter, a little NaNoWriMo post-mortem, maybe talking a tad slower now I'm not in such a rush over that.

It's time to visit the crime scene in the third chapter of Hobson & Choi! They meet a crowd of press, their first suspect and Choi finds a way to hate Subway sandwiches. All true. Meanwhile, in the back matter, I am hungover but struggling on. I also mention H&C being close to 1000 votes on Jukepop and ask people to go vote, only for it to go over 1000 literally while I was typing this blurb. Oh well. Can't complain.
