My Interview with The Web Light Novel and Manga Review Podcast

I got to speak to Zeke Changuris on his new podcast WLNM – The Web Light Novel and Manga Podcast.

It was nice to focus on my own work, The Bleeding Worlds. While I love my work with reviewing and promoting light novels, it’s a nice change of pace to speak about my other passion.

I think this podcast Zeke is producing is also a major boon for independent authors and manga creators. While a number of us who create in that space are doing what we can to bring more attention to our community, it’s nice to have someone else investing time and effort to celebrate our creations.

The WLNM Podcast is still in its early days, I’m only the fourth guest. But I know Zeke has spoken to others beyond me and I believe his passion for this project is going to see this continue far into the future. Make sure to subscribe to his channel on YouTube or to his Podbean channel. And beyond that, check out the artists he features.

The internet is a big place and trying to find an audience can be challenging. It’s a pleasure to have someone trying to aid indies in that journey.

The only survivors are demons and children, and those few who remain are threatened by rampaging monsters and callous vampires rounding up human beings like cattle. Faced with overwhelming despair, the survivors band together in hopes of reviving their world.
Tormented by the sin he has committed and unable to share the burden with his friends, Guren sets out on a new journey amid the ruins of the world he himself destroyed. But is he man or demon, savior or angel of death? Not even he knows for sure.
