Book Gang Podcast Episode 18: The Best in Steam and Scream

Chip runs the Steam & Scream Book Club and brings his favorite book club romance and thrillers to our show today. His eye for steam, in particular, landed him a book cover deal with a romance writer that’s just the kind of story you need to to hear today.
Chip also brings his professional photography background to our show to discuss simple ways to document your reading year that will fit any budget and how to streamline your photo editing process.
What I love the most about today’s episode is that two of our selections today are self-published, a notable detail that I think is worth celebrating.
Regarding sound: this concludes the “Amy was hooked up to her web cam and not her microphone” show series. Thank you for bearing with me as I learn and grow. The sound greatly improves next week, I promise. Oh, how I have been humbled!
