I’m raving about the new Christmas RomCom, LoveHard, and then I’m indulging in a spoilery rant about the season finale of Lucifer and why I hated it. Why is the concept of an HEA and a long-term loving relationship so hard?
First Cup of Coffee – November 15, 2021: My weekend – which included an actual book event with IRL people! – and my excited thoughts on Red (Taylor’s Version). Talking on creators owning their work and also how we decide whether to revise past work.
First Cup of Coffee – November 18, 2021: Why I think “Kill Your Darlings” isn’t actually useful writing advice. Also I’m discussing how to write novellas, and I’m introducing the Watch Phrase of the Day! Today’s is: prevent the proliferation of secondary characters.
Author Jenn Burke discusses “House on Fire,” the latest book in her “Ashes and Dust” series. Jenn also talks about why she created the spin off from the “Not Dead Yet” series. She also shares why she enjoys spreading romances across multiple books, her enjoyment in writing second chance romance, and the twists that she always adds to her paranormal characters to make them her own. In addition, we get a great story about how Jenn and Kelly Jensen got together to write the “Chaos Station” series.
At long last, Alli is reading and discussing the book that has been most frequently recommended to her by guests and listeners in 2020 and 2021: Linda Sue Park’s Prairie Lotus. This book presents a long overdue perspective about the same (highly complicated) era romanticized by Laura Ingalls Wilder and explores matters of race, xenophobia, loss, Otherness, and assault. On Episode 170, Alli and her guest discuss the importance of embracing one’s full identity, the depiction of Native American culture in Prairie Lotus, the pressures placed on children and women of color, and so much more. Enjoy this third week of New Reads November 2021!
