DA-SBTB Podcast 27. Category Romance

Surprise, you’re reading category romance! In this episode, we talk about the success of self-published and digitally published romances marketed as single title contemporaries, and how many of them are very much like category romances. We also talk about aspects of stories that make us stop reading, and we discuss some books we’re both enjoying – including Sarah’s book club selection, Storm, by Brigid Kemmerer.

Here are the books we discuss this episode:

Sarah will be recording interviews at RWA, so if you see Sarah wandering around with a big silver phallic-looking mic, that’s the Yeti. Be wary of it. It’s huge.
