Something different, on Lisa Burton Radio #RRBC

Welcome to another edition of Lisa Burton Radio. This is your host, Lisa the robot girl, with a show that’s a bit different today.

These interviews have gotten really popular, and I’m getting a lot of verbal commitments for future shows. What I’m not getting is action on those commitments. Because of this, I don’t have a guest this week.

I’ve hosted pirates, goblins, ghosts, spies, superheroes, a serial killer, even a lawyer. I have a hunch your characters will fit right in.

This show may be the only character based interview slot on the entire internet. Fiction authors should consider sending me a character to interview. I’m willing to include purchase links, cover art, and bios.

Today, I’m going to do what some of the morning show jocks do and call someone up. While I’m connecting, I’ll make my sponsor C. S. Boyack. He’s my author and writes science fiction, paranormal, and fantasy tales. Here we go.

“Hello. What do you want?”

“Is this Clovis?”

“Yeah. How did you get this number?”

“I’m Lisa the robot girl. I have all the numbers.”

“That chick from the writing cabin?”

“Yes. You’re on the air right now with Lisa Burton Radio.”


“Well, I need a guest and thought of you. How’s my car?”

“Ha, the GTO is fine, but I don’t remember it being yours.”

“It should have been. I asked Craig to let me make a poster with it, but he said it was to obvious. What have you been doing since The Playground wrapped up?”

“Just living the good life. I’m down here in – well let’s just say I’m out in the boondocks.”

“Did you ever meet back up with that special lady?”

“Kind of. We see each other on weekends. Sometimes she comes out to the bait and tackle shop, sometimes I go to town now that the heat’s off.”

“Are you fitting in with your neighbors?”

“I am now. There were a couple of young guys who thought they could rob my till and steal my beer. They weren’t as tough as they thought. Screamed like little girls once I attached the snapping turtles.”

“That’s terrible.”

“Actually, it was pretty funny. They danced around like Michael Jackson trying to shake them off. The dog thought they were playing and knocked them down.”

“How is that stupid dog?”


“He ate my bathing suit you know.”

“That’s what I heard. He means well, but doesn’t always understand.”

“I love animals, so I forgive him. Have you seen any paranormal stuff since you got there?”

“It isn’t as common as you think. I still have that pain-in-the-butt doctor’s card if I ever do. It’s in the car somewhere. I’ve seen some crap, so I know it’s out there. In fact, I’d like to get a rematch with that Morley dude.”

“I don’t see that happening any time soon. He only comes around when someone is going to die.”

“So if I bump off one of those knuckleheads do you think he’d show up?”

“That’s terrible. You’re supposed to be retired and living the good life.”

“Life’s good, but a man still needs to let off steam every now and then.”

“Maybe you can sign up for one of those boot camp kind of programs.”

“I already did that, in the Marines. I don’t see any reason to do it again.”

“It sounds like you’re doing okay. The bait and tackle shop is open again, the car and dog are in good shape, and you have a budding relationship.”

“It’s okay, but retirement’s kind of boring. Maybe I’ll load up Justine and the dog and head down to Mexico for a week.”

“Don’t get into any trouble.”

“Me? I’m the poster boy of caution. If there’s any trouble it’ll be Justine or the dog causing it.”

“Alright, thanks for visiting with us today. Any last words?”

“Yeah. Lose this number.”

“Can’t. Craig makes me keep all of them. He says you never know if someone will return in a story. It happened to me, and it kind of livened things up.”

“Oh yeah? Tell him to send me into one of those schools some asshole decides to shoot up. I’ll bet those guys aren’t nearly as tough as they think they are. They think they’re persecuted now, wait until I get done with them.”

“I, um. I don’t want to know. Bye now.”

Clovis is one of three main characters in The Playground, and he’s not someone to trifle with. If you want to know more about him, I’ll include a purchase link.

I need guests to keep this show going. Authors, drop us a line at Coldhand (dot) Boyack (at) gmail (dot) com and get your characters on the show. I’m really good about tweeting it out all day, sharing it on two Facebook sites, Flipboard, and Stumbleupon. I also tweet them out randomly on Fridays. That’s pretty decent promotion for the cost of free. Come visit with me.

Even if you don’t have a character ready for the show, maybe one of your writer friends does. Please share this post and let them know.


The Playground is a paranormal tale, set in the style of Frank Miller and Quentin Tarantino. It includes a bit of science fiction, but it’s the kind we might actually have next week.

Told from the point of view of three different characters in alternating stories, the threads all tie together at the end.

Why not read a sample, or check it out on Amazon Unlimited for free. Here is the purchase link


Get your characters on the show. Let readers know how awesome they really are. Use the sharing buttons below and let your friends know about this opportunity. Feel free to use the hashtag #LisaBurtonRadio.

  1. Great interview, Craig – I can’t believe you didn’t have a guest this week! It’s such a fab radio show, and Lisa is a great host. Will spread the word šŸ˜€

    Here’s Craig’s latest interview on Lisa Burton Radio – amazingly, he didn’t have a guest this week, but luckily one of his own characters was available to drop by. This radio spot is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to showcase your characters and give them a voice outside their story. Denoris, from my Ambeth books, dropped by a little while ago and had a great time. So if you’re looking for a promotional opportunity that’s a little bit different, get in touch with Craig.

  4. I’ve been sharing with a few friends by email and did a shout-out on my blog awhile back for Lisa’s show. It’s always a fun feature. Maggie (from my Point Pleasant series) has visited, but I’ll have to collar another character for you. I was thinking about Jesse from Eclipse Lake, but (as a 17-year-old) I think he’d probably spend most of his time staring at Lisa, LOL.

    The Clovis interview was fun šŸ™‚

  5. Liked the follow-up on Clovis. Sounds like a second story in the works. (at least I would hope so)

  6. Clovis sounds pretty cool. I enjoyed this as much as the others. Now that you’ve read NA, we could interview Brandi and/or Richard. Just say when….no spoilers of course.

    Great interview, indeed. Lisa has outdone herself, I think.
    Is Lisa willing to interview characters she has no idea about?

    Like the characters in my latest release Till Life Do us Part? Barbara, Emma? It’s part mystery, part romance, part supernatural.

  8. I ā¤ Clovis! The paperback of Freebooter's Fantasy Almanac is hopefully out the end of this month – Jano's 'boss' Telly Savaloy would probably get a kick out meeting Lisa properly… šŸ˜‰

  15. Glad to hear Clovis is enjoying retirement with the dog and only ‘letting off steam’ every now and then. Hope to see him again – soon.

    • Ha ha, I re-read it after our exchange, and forgot about the Michael Jackson line. I’ll take the Clovis request under advisement. I may be making a quick trip soon that could be full of inspiration.
