Overcast 153: Headspace by Beth Cato

The Overcast

Headspace by Beth Cato. Narrated by Steve Quinn. Hosted by J.S. Arquin. #SciFi #cats The creature entered the light. "Damn," Akiko muttered. The ginger kitten had an odd, ambling gait that showed the sharp jut of its hips. God, the thing was half dead, and way too small. A runt, maybe, or just plain wasting away. Its mouth opened in a silent meow. A stubby tail stood upright as a flagpole. "Hey," she crooned, holding out a gloved hand. Before even reaching her, the critter began to purr. A trusting thing, then. Socialized. "How the hell did you get up here? That hop was too short for you to be born aboard. How did you escape? Did someone try to steal you, strip your ID, stuff you up here?" Damn, she'd need to check those quarters. There had to be some kind of break in the grate. AUTHOR Nebula-nominated Beth Cato is the author of the Clockwork Dagger duology and the Blood of Earth trilogy from Harper Voyager. She’s a Hanford, California native transplanted to the Arizona desert, where she lives with her husband, son, and requisite cats. Follow her at BethCato.com and on Twitter at @BethCato. NARRATOR Steve Quinn is an audiobook narrator and voice actor living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Born and raised in Texas (yee-haw I guess) he moved to the big city to pursue comedy- performing in countless sketch, improv and stand-up shows. His joke about almond butter got him noticed by a casting director who said he had the face for voice over. After voicing dozens of commercials and cartoons his love of storytelling led him to full time audiobook narration and you may find his titles on Audible, Amazon & ITunes. He currently lives in Brooklyn with his lovely girlfriend Sarah, their 7-month-old daughter Ciara (pronounced Key-Ruh) and Lou the cat whom he found inspiration from to tell this story.

Unscrambled Authors Episode 32: Beth Cato on Her New Release

Unscrambled Authors

About the show Beth is a repeat guest, having been on episode 9. I’m pleased to have her back today to talk about historical research and things she discovered while working on her new release, Call of Fire. We also discuss my favorite feature on her blog: Bready or Not. If you want to find out how to find the most delicious recipies, stay tuned. Food Network, eat your heart out, because I have Beth Cato on today’s show and she’s cooking up good books and even more scrumptious snacks. About Our Guest I reside in Buckeye, Arizona, on the outskirts of Phoenix. My family includes my husband Jason, son Nicholas, and elder-cat Porom. I’m originally from Hanford, California. If I wear ruby slippers and tap my heels three times, that’s where I go by default. Website: http://bethcato.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/beth.cato Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/BethCato Pintrest: http://pinterest.com/bethcato/ About the Book A resourceful young heroine must protect the world from her enemies—and her own power—in this thrilling sequel to the acclaimed Breath of Earth, an imaginative blend of alternative history, fantasy, science, magic, and adventure. When an earthquake devastates San Francisco in an alternate 1906, the influx of geomantic energy nearly consumes Ingrid Carmichael. Bruised but alive, the young geomancer flees the city with her friends, Cy, Lee, and Fenris. She is desperate to escape Ambassador Blum, the cunning and dangerous bureaucrat who wants to use Ingrid’s formidable powers to help the Unified Pacific—the confederation of the United States and Japan—achieve world domination. To stop them, Ingrid must learn more about the god-like magic she inherited from her estranged father—the man who set off the quake that obliterated San Francisco. When Lee and Fenris are kidnapped in Portland, Ingrid and Cy are forced to ally themselves with another ambassador from the Unified Pacific: the powerful and mysterious Theodore Roosevelt. But even TR’s influence may not be enough to save them when they reach Seattle, where the magnificent peak of Mount Rainier looms. Discovering more about herself and her abilities, Ingrid is all too aware that she may prove to be the fuse to light the long-dormant volcano . . . and a war that will sweep the world.
