About the Show
Tales from the Trunk: Reading the stories that didn't make it, is a show about, well, about the stories that we couldn't sell for one reason or another. Maybe we exhausted all the markets on our list and never quite got them to click. Maybe we realized that there was something fundamentally broken in them and didn't have the energy to fix them. Maybe we just got to a point where we didn't feel like that story reflected us as writers anymore.
The thing is that there's no one thing that causes us to trunk stories. Every writer is different, and every story is different.
That's why this show exists. To allow the guests to share the work that never quite worked, to share the stories of how they make stories.
Tales from the Trunk is a show for science fiction, fantasy, and horror fans who want to know more about how some of their favorite authors do what they do, and it's a show for authors everywhere on their journey who need to know that they're not alone.
It's a show I wish I'd had when I started writing.
