Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast, Episode No. 19

This was recorded when I was coming down with the flu and pneumonia, and I’m slightly out of breath – and coughing. I edited out most of the coughing but if I missed one, I apologize.

This episode includes Sarah’s nefarious plans for Romantic Times in 2012 in Chicago, reader mail from Sarah’s inbox about buying books, picking self published books for review and how we do it, pitching books for review and how not to do it, and reacting and responding to reviews. Jane also tries to recommend books to Sarah.

Here are the books we discuss in this episode:

And yes – more Peatbog!

The music this week was provided by Sassy Outwater, and the track is called “Nyup” and it’s by the Peatbog Faeries from their 2007 album What Men Deserve to Lose. You can find them at their website, or at iTunes.

    I got The Girl from Mars yesterday. Just the fact that the heroine was a fan of the X-Files was enough to convince me (I’m such a nerd), and now that I listened to the podcast I’m even more excited to read it.

    Keep up the good work!

    Jane, hope you are feeling better. My better half had pneumonia last year and it was a long road back to recovery. Be kind to yourself!
