Good news, everyone! Science fiction author Michael La Ronn joins the podcast this week. Regular listeners will remember him from the Literary Roadhouse Bookclub’s discussion of Sunil Yapa’s Your Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist.
Michael is best known for his Android X series which is available on Amazon. You can learn more about him on his website michaellaronn.com He also shares his self-publishing and authorpreneur tips on his Youtube channel: Author Level Up. He just published his latest novel, Old Dark, on Amazon.
This week Maya, Anais, Rammy, and Michael discuss literary science fiction. All four hosts enjoyed the story. In Maya’s case, she was so moved by the story she even shed a tear. The Latin culture references tickled Anais. Meanwhile, Rammy liked the uplifting premise. As for Michael, this story reinforced his belief that good literature can be found in all genres.
