Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast, episode #8

We’re back with a new – and longer! – episode. This time around we’re talking about popular series in romance, specifically small town community romances for which I have a particular name.

If you’ve ever wondered why it is that we so seldom choose a Save the Contemporary title, you’ll learn in this episode. We’ll also talk about streak reading, what we’re reading that’s awesome, and we’ll discuss some books that are coming out this fall. Plus, there’s special extra awesome erotica excerpt reading by Sarah. It’s toward the end and you’ll want to read it.

You can find us at iTunes.

Mp3 is available for download as well (by right clicking and save as).  Please don’t play it in the browser because it kills our server.

If you have content suggestions, tips on how to do this whole thing better, or general wtf-ery comments, email us. It’s all welcome because a) we are new to this and b) we don’t really know what we are doing so the wtf comments are probably all valid. The email address for the podcast is [email protected].

Thanks to Sarah who sets this up, asks all the questions, and does all the editing. Basically this podcast would not exist without her.  And to Sassy Outwater, who provided the new and original music for this podcast, and will be featured in future podcasts as well. This week’s song features Sassy on the fiddle and JD on the piano, and is called “Fiddler on the Loose.”

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    May I just say – I love the Title of your podcast. Hilarious.

    You’ve given a whole new meaning to those chairs. LOL

    I will never look at an adirondack chair the same again…

    I forgot to mention, I bought the same book, “Delicate Freakin’ Flower”. Loved the title enough to buy another book by the same author, “Bunny and the Bear” (hero is a were-bear and the heroine is a were-bunny) . Haven’t read either yet, but hoping they are fun.
