The Melting Potcast

Episode 74- Main Ingredient “The Jewel of Lir’s Hammer,” A Little Seasoning, Mystery Meal

February 1, 2019

We kick off February with a three-course meal for your ears! Start out with Main Ingredient story "The Jewel of Lir's Hammer" by Laura Nicole.

Winifred wakes up, remembering only an explosion, to discover the ship she's been living on has been taken by pirates. Now outed as a woman, how is she going to keep her life in her own control?

We follow the story with A Little Seasoning with the author herself, Laura Nicole. A. F. and Laura Nicole (aka Spence) discuss the story as well as audio narration and audiobook production.

Finally, we torture Dishboy Theo with another Mystery Meal, destroying a scene from Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs.


The Melting Potcast is OPEN to submissions and needs YOUR help! Main Ingredient stories (up to 5000 words) and Stoke the Fire stories (up to 1500 words and based on one of our prompts) are needed, badly!
