I missed Josh, and you’re going to get that pretty much right from the beginning of this episode. I Met Josh back in 2014, when BIRD BOX was recently released, and nobody knew yet what a sensation it would become.

It’s easy to fall in love with someone’s books, and Josh’s stories are no exception. I really, genuinely love the books he’s put out, and I think he’s a rare talent. I am lucky enough that, over the years, I have also had the privilege to get to know the people. I count Josh among a small group of people that are bonafide friends, beyond any fandom or podcasting interaction. So, I missed Josh.

Josh loves stories, and his enthusiasm fuels him as a writer - exploring ideas and stretching boundaries to capture what’s possible. It also fuels him as a fan. He can be effusive about the art that he consumes that he’s in awe of, and it’s a very inviting thing to witness. With Josh, it always feels like we’re going along on an adventure - whether it’s a story I’m reading or an episode of a podcast we’re recording.

I hope that his enthusiasm pulls you along, and I hope mine does as well.

Now, go buy his books!

Your first look at upcoming books!
My goal with the ARC Party is to connect readers with books before they release! Much of the success of a new book is connected to pre-orders and early sales numbers, but sometimes people don't hear about a book until long after it's been released.
An episode typically consists of an author giving a quick description of their book, followed by a spoiler free discussion about it. We often talk about themes, characters, settings, etc. But I'm careful to not talk about anything that would ruin the reading experience!
