Happy Halloween everyone! To help celebrate this spooky time of year, I'm joined today with author Juno Jakob. We both are devoted fans of Ray Bradbury, and we talk about him and his influence on our lives. Juno has also written a new book for YA called The Halloween Book - it is going to be released on Halloween day, and it's perfect reading for the kids in your life. Perhaps this Halloween you could hand out copies of the book instead of candy... OR BOTH! (Both is probably better...) In all seriousness, I enjoyed this discussion with Juno, and I hope you will too. So as Ray Bradbury would say, Live Forever!

 Today's episode is pretty special. First of all, we are celebrating 10 episodes! Wooo HOO! Also, the entire episode is on video - I'm slowly trying to learn new skills and this was fun to put together. And finally, I have two very special guests on the podcast: CJ Corl, author and writer of the upcoming podcast series "Simply to Die For". Joining her is actor Joe Morales who plays a character in the podcast. I have an absolute delight chatting with them about their new podcast drama series, podcasts, how they got into writing and acting, books, authors, and what inspires us to create. This was such a fun and chatty interview. If you'd like to have your podcast featured on an upcoming "Podcast Spotlight" episode, let me know. I'll check it out, and if it's a good fit I'll give you a spotlight interview! I'm hoping to focus on podcasts that are book or story related, drama/comedy series, etc. Reach out at bookshelfodysseypodcast@gmail.com! Podcast and Links mentioned: Roving Rogue Pro: https://linktr.ee/rovingroguepro  The Way We Haunt Now: https://hauntnowpod.com/ Victorian Scribblers: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/victorian-scribblers/id1254341845 Find me online:Facebook Group Page: @thebookshelfodyssey Twitter: @odyssey_podcast Instagram: @bookshelfodysseypodcast Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGtdYVC7SKy5_cHwSV8i-Xg Email: bookshelfodysseypodcast@gmail.com Ways to Support the Show: Buying a book?

Hello! Today I have a very special guest on - Rita Maria Martinez, author of the Jane Eyre inspired poetry collection, "The Jane and Bertha in Me". Rita joins me to discuss Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte, and the impact stories and words can have on us. I enjoyed talking with Rita - and I know you will enjoy hearing the episode. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite Victorian novels. Charlotte Bronte wrote it in 1847 - and yet it still resonates with audiences today. Find out how this classic book inspired Rita Martinez on her own journey, as we discuss Jane Eyre, The Brontes, and why they still matter today.

It’s all about science fiction today on The Bookshelf Odyssey Podcast! Sci-Fi takes up a significant portion of my bookshelves, how about yours? Today I interview a very special guest, the Hugo award nominated (and winner!) author Naomi Kritzer. She has two stories up for nomination this year at the Hugoes - “Monster” and the marvelous “Little Free Library”. Join me today as I talk to her about her writing journey (persistence pays!), science fiction, and some of her favorite stories. In the episode I also talk about what I’m reading, how I found science fiction (thank you Star Wars!) and we learn a tiny bit about Little Free Libraries.

Then I begin reading Elizabeth Gaskell's gothic tale, The Grey Woman.  A Victorian woman  traveling through Europe comes across a striking portrait of a lady known as The Grey Woman. The story she uncovers about the woman in the portrait may have been written in 1861, but it's themes still resonate today.

In today's episode of Bookshelf Odyssey Podcast, We continue our exploration of Victorian  writer, Elizabeth Gaskell. Today, I read to you her charming morality tale, "Hand and Heart". It tells the story of little Tom Fletcher and begins with his desire to have "a great deal of money" in order to be able to do good deeds. His mother teaches him that money isn't necessary to be able to show kindness to others. This is a marvelous story that celebrates kindness and compassion - and though the story was written in 1849, it carries a powerful message that is needed in our world today.
