Dear Bitches Smart Authors Podcast: Jane Interviews Sarah regarding “Everything I...

For this edition of the Dear Bitches, Smart Authors podcast, Jane (me) asks Sarah Really Really Hard Questions about Everything I Know About Love, I Learned from Romance Novels, known affectionately as EIKAL.  I tried to ask hard questions about the book. Sarah said she felt cross examined.

I hope you enjoy the interview, and get a little insight into the book – which is now available at bookstores and libraries near you.

This week’s music is from Shadow Orchestra, and the very mellow track is called “Matilda Reprise.” You can find Shadow Orchestra at iTunes or at their website.

We also talk about books we loved that feature strong female friendships, and you’ll get to hear the EXTREMELY rare occurrence that Sarah knows an author’s name that Jane can’t remember(!!). And, as requested, here’s the list of books we talk about in this podcast:

    I’m loving the podcasts! Your discussion about virginity got me thinking… do you think books coming out today have still got that insistence on female virginity? I’m thinking of the books I’ve read recently, and the only virginal heroines are those who you really would expect to be so (e.g. unmarried young women in historicals). No unbelievable contortions to make a courtesan or widow a virgin, and no 30-year-old virgins in contemps. Hmm, maybe I just choose authors who wouldn’t do that…

    Thanks Rosario. I don’t know. Virginity is still a virtue in HPs. Additionally there is one book out this month featuring a virgin courtesan. I found that frustrating. But you may be right that it is losing it’s luster with readers.

    Someone pointed out that there seems to be an increase in male virgins. Step forward?
