Ep. 355 – Ray Daniel, Author of “Terminated”!

TerminatedTOPIC:  A wonderful discussion with Ray Daniel about his new book “Terminated” – the first Tucker mystery and a must read!  Plus, we get into tech entrepreneurship and writing in Boston, Internet privacy, security, social hacking, and more!

Ray is kind enough to share what tools he uses for writing, and additional links to his writing efforts:

  • Scrivner – helps put your thoughts together, keeps them in order.
  • Nisus Writer Pro – Clean and simple but ultra-fast word processor.
  • RayDanielMystery – Dying for the next Tucker mystery? Find out more about our new favorite geek fiction character here! Don’t miss the links to Ray’s award-winning short stories too.
  • Terminated – The book is now available through all major access points, including for your favorite eReader.

Although the dust has barely shaken off his boots, Mike is excited to share a few of his best recommendations for travel apps and planning software:

  • RoadTrippers – Plan, discover, share and get on the road! Our pick for best overall trip companion for your own “Great American Road Trip!”  Mobile and web versions.
  • TripAdvisor – Helps pick hotels, find gas, places to go and more. A great resource for getting good deals on the road.
  • Hotels.com – More specific than TripAdvisor, Hotels.com gets you a bed fast and cheap wherever you are! Many of the deals here are not available when you call or through other resources.  The mobile app was a lifesaver for us multiple times on our recent adventure!
  • Kayak – YATA (yet another travel app), but a good one. Kayak is based on a freemium model, but the free access will work for most things you want to do.
