We are book editors Carly Hayward and Jeni Chappelle, and we are so excited to introduce our new podcast, Story Chat Radio. Each month we’ll watch a different movie with an eye for storytelling and novel writing. Then we’ll use our training and years of experience editing novels to break down each movie’s storytelling elements to help you improve your novel-in-progress. In each episode, we’ll also feature a query or book blurb for a manuscript that has elements similar to our movie of the month. New episodes will air the last Tuesday of every month starting October 29, 2019. Listen in for a taste of what to expect.
