Josh Bernhard, a huge Star Wars fan who operates the Podcast “Trash Compactor” for other Star Wars fans, invited John L. Flynn to participate in an hour-long interview to discuss his script/story treatment for Star Wars Episode 3: Fall of the Republic. In 1982, when Flynn was a budding author/writer, being published regularly with the various sci-fi magazines, like Starlog, Cinefantastique, and Fangoria (to name a few), he wrote a script/story treatment for one of the future Star Wars movies as Christmas gifts to a number of his sci-fi fan friends. “I was too poor to purchase a traditional holiday gift at the time.” One of the people who received his “gift” was a wheeler-dealer vendor at one of the sci-fi conventions who thought his story was good enough to print, and arranged to print hundreds (perhaps even thousands) of copies of Flynn’s story for sale at the conventions. At his vendor table, he told everyone that he had obtained a copy of the script for the next Star Wars movie and sold innumerable copies. Other vendors, not wanting to be left out of the potential sales, bought a copy themselves, and they reproduced hundreds of more. Like most urban legends, his story sprouted legs, and it was suddenly available in every venue where there were Star Wars fans anxious to get a sneak peek at the next Star Wars movie. His script/story treatment for Star Wars Episode 3: Fall of the Republic went the equivalent of “viral” in those days, with fan groups discussing, debating, and spreading the word. Nearly everyone who encountered Flynn’s story thought it was a terrific, well-written with great characters and set pieces, and that it was the “real” basis for one of the next Star Wars films. Yet, Flynn never made a dime on the story. Having produced it for his friends, he had no way to know what would eventually happen. Therefore, John L. Flynn was a household name with Star Wars fans for a very long time.
Flynn eventually started publishing his own stories, apart from Star Wars, and made a career for himself as an author of science fiction and mystery stories. He has written over 20 books and has been nominated for 3 Hugo Awards. Josh Bernhard used his investigative skills as a journalist, tracking Flynn down several months ago, and invited him to record a podcast with him. In the hour-long podcast, they talked about how his script/story treatment for Star Wars Episode 3: Fall of the Republic took Star Wars fandom by storm—deeper into the origins of the story—and how many fans, even to this day, feel his story was far superior to the one George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, produced on his own. Lucas’ Episode 3 was criticized when it finally came out on the big screen, whereas Star Wars fans wished that Lucas had used Flynn’s. The interview had Josh and Flynn comparing versions, talking about the various sequels and prequels, and then came back around to Flynn’s current works as a professional writer.
Open Road Publishing takes on Robert Goswitz’s The Dragon Soldier’s Good Fortune!
A story of luck and Devine protection in a most unusual form…
An ancient king of Vietnam commanded his subjects to cover their arms and thighs with dragon tattoos. The accepted belief of the time was that the Dragon Spirit protected farmers against evil spirits in their rice paddies.
In 1971, Private Ed Lansky seeks protection from a different form of evil, ‘Something’ to guide him through his year in country. Each time the war tries to kill him or burden him with guilt, the dragon appears, guarding and guiding him. A weight lifts from his soul as he discovers the power of the Dragon Spirit…his Warrior Shield.
Although this is a work of fiction, much of what happens comes directly from Goswitz’s personal accounts, making it ever so real in the mind’s eye of the reader. Commendable writing of a turbulent time in American and Vietnam history.
Robert Goswitz was born and raised in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, graduated from Milton College, and holds an MA in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. He was drafted into the US Army in March of 1971 and served in Vietnam from September of 1971 to August of 1972, receiving the Combat Infantry Badge and the Bronze Star for his service. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE! After the military, Robert was a special education teacher from 1974 until his retirement in 2007. Goswitz is a Wisconsin writer whose novel excerpts have been published in O Dark Thirty Literary Magazine and The Military Writers Anthology for 2015. Another excerpt received Honorable Mention from the Tom Howard/John H. Reid Fiction/ Essay Contest sponsored by Winning Writers “One of the Writer’s Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers” www.winningwriters.com. The Dragon Soldier’s Good Fortune is his first novel. The prequel, The Earth Shall Claim Your Bones, is available for acquisition. Robert Goswitz Facebook Represented by Loiacono Literary Agency

Open Road releases Jeanne Charters’ first two novels in the Daughters of Ireland Trilogy: Shanty Gold and Lace Curtain!
“Charters interweaves many important topics—immigration, civil rights, women’s rights—into her exciting novels . . . An evocative portrait of South Boston.” —Kirkus Reviews
Shanty Gold — After the deaths of her mother and infant sister during Ireland’s Great Famine, thirteen-year-old Mary Boland makes her way to the Queenstown harbor and onto a coffin ship bound for America. But what happens during her transatlantic passage is enough to quash the strongest of dreams. After being assaulted by crewmembers, Mary thinks of ending her life—until a young Black slave named Kamua comes to her rescue . . .
Lace Curtain — In a time of great gains and upheavals, Nellie faces women’s rights, racism — black, white, Irish, Italian — and the struggle of being who she is meant to be regardless of gender, religion, or status. In her world there were three choices: Silk Stocking, the top-o-the-rung, Shanty Irish, the bottom-o-the-barrel, or Lace Curtain, those who refuse to go back and are striving to be the best.
After years of working in radio sales and raising four daughters, Jeanne Charters became VP of marketing for Viacom TV, then branched-off and opened her own advertising agency, Charters Marketing, with her husband, Matt. “He’s the business brain, I’m the creative one.”
The writing bug had bitten a long time ago, but its effects stayed hidden until it was time.
“People sometimes wonder where a character comes from. ‘When did you think up Mary Boland anyway?’ I don’t know about all authors, but for me, Mary Boland was a magical name I heard through my childhood from my mother and aunts. She was my great-great-grandmother. There were no pictures of her and no records of her accomplishments, but she came to me in dreams…a young girl with curly red hair, riding her horse along the Irish seacoast.
“’Tell my story,’ she whispered.
“In her first iteration, she was the star of a manuscript called Daughters of Ireland. Mary was the first in three generations of women. Writing class instructors and published authors alike told me, ‘Each of these women deserves her own book.’ They were right. So, I started over and told Mary’s story in Shanty Gold. Next came Nellie Kelly’s story, Mary Boland’s daughter, in Lace Curtain. Silk Stocking, soon to be released, brings three generations together when Nellie gives birth to Kathleen. These women are family to me and I am thrilled to see their stories in print. Enjoy!”
Charters is also the author of a humorous memoir, Funny, isn’t’ it?

Fascinating personal histories are revealed through the stories of cherished objects, in this anthology celebrating the meaningful mementos of our lives.
Amber Lanier Nagle has always been interested in keepsakes, whether her own or those she encounters in her friends’ homes. Seemingly ordinary items—a glass bluebird, a pocketknife, a dime-store locket, a faded fishing lure, a dented cake pan, a model train car—become priceless treasures when their stories are uncovered. In Project Keepsake, Nagle collects the tales of these objects and their beloved memories from contributors near and far.
“Why do you keep this?” Nagle asks. “Where did it come from?” And then she listens as the stories pour out. Told in first-person by both seasoned and aspiring writers, every essay in the anthology is unique—yet each reveals common threads that connect us all and celebrate the glorious human experience.
Amber Lanier Nagle is a Georgia girl through and through. In 2006, after working for eighteen years as an engineer, she reinvented herself as a freelance writer specializing in nonfiction articles.

For eleven years, she penned a monthly newspaper column focusing on memories, relationships, and unique observations from her lifetime in Georgia. In 2012, she published a selection of these articles in an ebook titled Southern Exposure: A Few Random, Rambling, Retrospective Pieces of My Life.,
She’s the brainchild behind Project Keepsake, a collection of stories told in first-person by ordinary people about their treasured keepsakes and mementos, and she conducts “Writing About Keepsakes” workshops in Georgia and Tennessee to help aspiring writers find their voice and craft their own keepsake stories.
