Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast, Episode DABWAHA 2012

It’s DABWAHA Time!

We’re talking about what categories will be in this year’s DABWAHA Tournament of romance novels, and what books we think should appear in some of the categories. Also, we were both typing too close to the microphone, and I apologize for the tappity tap tap.
