Podcast 107 Interview with John Jacobson
This week, Jane and Sarah interview John Jacobson, who you may know from his blog Dreaming in Books and from interacting with him on Twitter. He’s been a romance reader and a unique voice in the romance community since he was 15. Now he’s a sophomore in college, and we wanted to ask what he’s reading, what he thinks about New Adult, and about the presence (or absence) of sex and sexuality in YA romance.
We also talk about More Love Letters, which you can learn about on their website.
Here are the books we discuss in this week’s episode:
This podcast is brought to you by InterMix, publisher of Scandal and the Duchess, an all-new e-novella in the popular Victorian-set Mackenzies series from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Ashley.
Scandal follows Rose Barclay, young widow of the Duke of Southdown, wherever she goes. It’s never her fault, but newspapers love to write about the young woman from Scotland, and the much older duke she married, who died on their honeymoon. The duke left her with a large widow’s portion, now contested by his son, who kicks Rose out of the estate’s dower house and uses it to kennel his dogs.
Rose does not need to be found with a large, handsome Scot passed out at her feet, fueling gossips and giving her brother-in-law more ammunition. The Scot is Steven McBride–a decorated soldier who is notorious for heavy gambling and womanizing during his leave time. Steven is happy to open his eyes and find the beautiful woman standing over him, and happy to help spirit her away.
He comes up with a ruse to foil the journalists, but Rose will have to go along with his very scandalous proposal.
