Debbi (00:54): But first, let me put in a good word for Blubrry podcasting.



I’m a Blubrry affiliate, but that’s not the only reason I’m telling you this. I’ve been using Blubrry Podcasting as my hosting service for my podcast for years and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made. They give great customer service, you’re in complete control of your own podcast, you can run it from your own website, and it just takes a lot of the work out of podcasting for me. I find for that reason that it’s a company that I can get behind 100% and say, “You should try this.” Try Blubrry. It doesn’t require a long-term contract, and it’s just a great company, period. It also has free technical support by email, video, and phone, so you can get a human being there. Isn’t that nice?



If you want to podcast, try out Blubrry. No long-term contract, excellent distribution, and great technical support, too, by email, video, and on the phone. I’ve included an affiliate link on this blog.

Debbi (00:54): Hi everyone. My guest for this episode writes thriller novels and he writes for adults and young adults. His books are in various stages of development for film and TV. He's also editor-in-chief and co-founder of Fringe dedicated to publishing fiction that's outside the box. That sounds interesting. He is a contributor to several publications, including Pipeline Artists. His pilots and screenplays have been finalists in Script Pipeline, Book Pipeline, Stage 32, WeScreenplay, Screencraft, and the Hollywood Screenplay Contest. He is also co-curator of the Guerilla Lit Reading Series. I'm very pleased to have with me today, author and screenwriter Lee Matthew Goldberg. Hi Lee. It is wonderful to have you on.

Lee (01:52): Hi Debbi. Yeah, thanks so much for having me on,

Debbi (01:54): Oh, it's my pleasure. Believe me and I, I had to get in the mention of Stage 32 because I'm on there, too. And it's just ...

Lee (02:01): Oh, it's good. It's, it's a good, it's a good resource. I think if you, you know, are a budding screenwriter and you're looking to like get in the industry and figure out how.

Debbi (02:11): Yes, yes, absolutely. I couldn't agree with you more. It, it is an excellent resource. So let's start off. I wanted to start off. How did you start off writing novels or screenplays?

Lee (02:26): I mean, if we really go back in time, I was like a kid trying out writing screenplays, but my first actual publication was a novel in 2015 and then I had my second book optioned and there was some interest and it, it all seemed great and then everything fell apart. And in my mind I was like, well, let me just try to adapt all of my works. And then I could be the one trying to feed it to producers and try to make something happen. So that's kind of my goal now. I, I, I write the scripts of all my books and try to see what could happen.

Debbi (03:03): Mm-Hmm is there a form you enjoy? Do you enjoy doing both equally or do you prefer one format over the other?

Lee (03:14): I mean,
