* This is Episode #56 for Feb 24, 2010.
* Episode 6 was a tortured birth, but was finally posted last weekend. It is part one of Chapter 6, and part two will drop soon.
- Part of the delay has been technical difficulties, and this precluded getting an episode of Out Of The Coffin out on time. My apologies and thank you all for your patience.

* AZ Storycasting Meetup & Signing
- I have been confirmed as a guest author and there will be books there for me to sign!
- Saturday March 13th, 6-8pm at Changing Hands Bookstore, Tempe, AZ
- Event cost: FREE! includes sodas and snacks
- Signing + talking + snacking = Good time! RSVP here

* TheBoomEffect.org is hosting an auction webathon run by Podcasting's Rich Sigfrit, with a plethora of special guests and fun. It will take place live online at 10am EST on Feb. 27th, 2010.

* Gail Carriger is the author of SOULLESS, its sequel, CHANGELESS which debuts March 30, and BLAMELESS which will arrive in September this year also!
- We talked for a good while about her background in archaeology, her "urbane fantasy" novels, podcasts, audio books, and more.
* Points of interest
- Check out my review of SOULLESS on Joss'd for some background
- SOULLESS takes place in 1873.
- SOULLESS recently won a 2010 ALEX Award as an adult book which also appeals to a YA audience.
- No audiobook version yet, but soon we hope.
- Don't forget about the wonderful production of the first chapter done by J.D. Sawyer, Chris Lester, Miss Kalendar, George Chlentzos, and Angela Vernon.
- Gail listens to and highly recommends Adventures in Sci-Fi Publishing, I Should Be Writing, and The Survival Guide to Writing Fantasy podcasts.
- Look for her non-fiction piece in Ann and Jeff Vandermeer's STEAMPUNK RELOADED anthology and her short story in the MAMMOTH BOOK OF PARANORMAL ROMANCE 2.
- Find out more about Ms. Carriger at her website and blog found at www.GailCarriger.com

* No music to wrap up. So enjoy the interview and Michelle and I will be back soon with reviews and such in March!

That wraps up this episode of the Out Of The Coffin podcast. Thanks for listening!
