Sweet Success Celebrates DeAnna Knippling

By: Kathie Scrimgeour

This week, Sweet Success celebrates DeAnna Knippling. A longtime member of PPW. She had the privilege of being interviewed by Big Pulp for one of their podcasts. We were curious how that came about. Here is what DeAnna told us:

Recently, I was contacted by Big Pulp publisher Bill Olver for an audio interview related to the work that I've published with Big Pulp over the last few years.  I have six stories with them and love the aesthetic of the magazines.  Bill has this taste for very pulpy weird stories that I love, so I bombard him with a lot of stuff and otherwise try to keep up with what he's doing.  

Right now, he's pushing to renew the magazine somewhat; due to life and other issues it's lagged for a bit (as you do).  So he's doing interviews with his authors and starting a Patreon campaign to help support the magazine and make sure the word gets out.  I got to be the first of the audio interviews recently; we talked on Skype for a while.  I babbled :)

The interview, which covers some of the stories that I wrote for Big Pulp as well as a short reading of the opening of Alice's Adventures in Underland: The Queen of Stilled Hearts, is here.
