Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast, Episode No. #24. An Interview with...

Surprise, surprise, Nalini Singh was in our hotel room, so we tied her to a chair and Sarah Wendell interviewed her. She’s live, not on Skype, and it’s a really fun and casual conversation because we didn’t plan to do this. We had the microphone and a half hour to chat. We did attempt to get real answers out of her, and were totally unsuccessful, despite threats and stares of doom.

You’ll hear about how Nalini approaches her writing and her series, and we talk about heroines, reality television, reading romance, and Gwen Stefani, too.

Here are some of the books, foods, and songs we talked about in the podcast:

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 Jane, 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.”

    The pod cast was fun, and nearly started me on a Psi Changeling reread. I think I’ll wait until a little closer the release of Tangle of Need, though.

    I thought fairy bread was an American thing. Guess not. Potato chip (crisp) sandwiches are highly recommended, but I wouldn’t have marmite on mine. Ugh.

    Also next time, you have to tie Angela James to the chair and make her talk.

    Fun. But I couldn’t always hear Jane even with the volume turned up.

    Thanks for letting us know about the podcast. It was fun. I got onto it via SBTB – where there was a direct link (with an obvious play button) to the podcast – I could not find the direct link to the podcast from this DA post though (did I miss it somewhere?). I loved the music too. Very nicely done.

    @library addict: That was my fault – I’m sorry. We set up around a desk and Jane was on the far side, and I didn’t catch the decreased volume until I was editing, and couldn’t do much to boost her voice. I’m sorry!

    Great podcast! I am a huge Nalini Singh fan so this was really fun to hear. It makes up for the time she came to my very small town on her book tour and I missed it because of pneumonia:(
    She is the only author I’ve ever written a super gushy email to about how much I loved her books and buy them immediately upon their release.

    I love your podcasts! I haven’t read anything by Nalini Singh yet, but hopefully I will soon. She sounds really nice.
