From a fan in Texas

Al and Val bring writing inspiration and knowledge from the other side of the planet. I have been listening to them while doing carpentry in the hot Texas sun.

They have great “radio” personalities and voices. And their accents make them feel like characters in “A Place You Can Call Home.” As I listen, I imagine I’m in the outback of Australia.

Thank you for the interviews and laughs. Keep up the good work. You have changed my life as a writer.

Hello from Colorado

I am a Finnish writer residing in the US and I’m so happy that I found Val & Al! As I tend to write my historical fiction in Finnish, joining a local writers group is really not an option, as no one would be able to read my writing, let alone give me feedback. But each week I get tips from Val & Al and the authors they have on the show to make my writing better! I love the wide variety of authors that you interview, it has really opened my eyes to the fact that each of us has a different process, background and time line to publication, and that’s OK! You make me learn and laugh out loud at the same time. Thank you for all you do, it is so much appreciated!

It's only the best there is.

I was refered to this podcast by an Australian peer I met via online through NaNoWriMo and was instantly hooked. These ladies literally get me through my day. I MUST listen to them on my drive to the office day job to keep me positive and excited about writing, with the mindset that perhaps I will not be stuck in my inane day job forever. I NEED these lady's humor, wit, encouragement, support, advice, and excellent author interviews to get me there. The best things in life are free!
