Buttercup of Doom was a weekly podcast hosted by Kelli Owen and brought to you by Project Entertainment Network… Everyone else was (still is) doing reviews and news and genre-based things, and Kelli’s never been very good at following the crowd. So each week Kelli was offering writing advice, sharing a smile, ranting about society or social media, tossing a bit of gypsy wisdom out there, and occasionally had guests. There were highs. There were lows. There was swearing (you’ve been warned). There may have been cookies.

But that’s all done now. The links on the individual pages may or may not work. And I’ll be taking them all down from here as I get them moved over to my patreon for safe keeping. If you want to listen (or are interested in any of the other chewy goodness I have over there) you are welcome to become a patreon.

I will be blogging more. Or rather, returning to that for my rants, thoughts, and random musings.

If I do record any audio/podcast-style rants or writing 101s or random guerrilla buttercup sessions, they will be 100% exclusively offered to my patreons. I may or may not tease the public when I do those…

As far as this page is concerned, I’m beginning the remodeling now. I’ve removed the upper links to find/download the episodes via Project Entertainment Network, iTunes,  I♥Radio, etc. The form is gone. The chance for advertising is gone. The buttercup is gone…

Thank you for listening!!

    You keep asking for comments on the show, so I figure I’ll stop procrastinating and give you a few:
    1. Really enjoy the show. I hope it continues for a long time. I have personal interest, being a horror writer, but also find it to be smart and funny, while not sounding scripted. I don’t agree with everything you say, but that’s okay because there would be no thinking involved if I did.
    2. I despise Nicole Arbour and did before the fat thing, but I still like the “funnies” recommendation. (P.S. Have you seen the Shia LeBouef interpretive dance thing? Now, that’s hilarious!)
    3. I totally dig the writing tips. Being a writer myself (not in the kiddy pool, more like filling up my bathroom sink with water and playing in it), they’re super beneficial.

    Okay, now that I’ve left a few comments, I won’t have to feel guilty next time you ask for them. Thanks for the fun show!

      you should know, this made me laugh. thank you! =)

      so… while filling up your bathroom sink, are there any special rubber ducks you’d like to discuss (wow, the metaphors!)?

      • Angela Bodine says:

        Ha! Hmmm…

        Well, I might have a few ducks:
        1: always curious how other writers strengthen their personal writing weaknesses. Mine is dialogue and “showing versus telling”
        2. I love to hear things going on in the industry. And pretend like I’m part of it.
        3. How do you handle people who don’t “get” horror? Sometimes people seem excited when I tell them I write, then disappointed when I tell them I write horror. What would you respond?

        That’s all the ducks that’ll fit in my little sink for now :)

    Roll call: raises hand.
    Still listening! I enjoyed this episode. :)

    I listened last week. I still like the rants even though they went from rated R to pg-13.

  • Dan Myers says:

    I listened to the edited version of the show from the Periscope taping the other day and wanted to expand on the topic of best of lists. If not for one of your colleagues (initials B.K. ) best books of the year read, I may never have heard of authors Carlton Mellick III, Bryan Smith and yourself. B.K.’s collaboration with Nick Mamatas also won Mr. Mamatas a fan here. So see? Best of lists of successful artists can be helpful in winning struggling artists new fans.

    • Kelli says:

      I agree they can be helpful, but they can also be incomplete, rushed, and sometimes, just wrong… but i’m glad you found good things on them!!!

Thoughts? Tell me what you think...
