Do you ever have a recurring dream? Maybe you’re always falling, and you wake up just before you smack into something. Or maybe you’re like me as a child and randomly dream about fat men eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and exploding (but in a fun, cartoony way).
For Carlos Allende, a fiction writer and media scholar, his recurring dream was that he had murdered someone. And that morbid and macabre environment served as the launching pad for his latest book, Coffee, Shopping, Murder, Love.
Carlos is talking about his new book, but he’s also dropping plenty of knowledge on storytelling, writing, and marketing your work. And don’t worry, no one actually gets murdered in this episode, so you can safely tune in.
