Epic Fantasy Adventures with Melinda Kucsera
I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
