Episode 31: DA SBTB Podcast, RWA Interviews with authors

From Sarah who graciously allowed me to bow out of the Podcasts conducted at RWA conference a few weeks ago:

This is the final interview from RWA. I had two more brief interviews but alas, the background noise made it very hard to distinguish the audio, so I apologize that I can’t add them to the podcast. The next time I see WahooSuze, I’m dragging her to a quiet place to chat with the small digital mic.

This interview with Stephanie Doyle and Molly O’Keefe took place on the day of the RITAs, and they were kind enough hot provide Coronas for all. So it’s a very relaxed and candid interview. We talk about romance and how it deals with sex and sexuality — and the ways in which romance sex is both powerful and also completely unrealistic and at times utterly bizarre. I also talk to both authors about their books that are coming up, and what unique ideas they’re including in the story.

Here are the books we discuss in the podcast:

Can't Buy Me Love - Molly OKeefeCan't Hurry Love - Molly O'Keefe

One Final Step Stephanie DoyleHer Best Worst Mistake - Sarah MayberryA Lady Awakened - Cecilia Grant
