First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy
First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy: December 3, 2021

Thoughts on power dynamics when young women date older men, as prompted by Taylor Swift’s All Too Well and a recent Dan Savage column, along with a story of my own on that problematic setup.

First Cup of Coffee – December 6, 2021: Why we tend to feel less competent the more books we write (or insert other expertise here), how being a creative means facing a continual cycle of failure and rejection – and how we learn to deal with that positively.

First Cup of Coffee – December 7, 2021: Body image, changing my relationship to exercise, grappling with things my body remembers being able to do, but no longer does, and incorporating playfulness and joy into both that and writing. Also: audiobook!

First Cup of Coffee – December 9, 2021: On the tyranny of round numbers and how that can interfere with the realization of our goals. Also: updates on how Amazon seems to be handling preorders and pushing back release dates. Some hope for writers!

Lit Wallflowers: New to Us – Brazen Angel with @bookishlyruby

Elizabeth Boyle is our New-to-Us November author and we are starting from the beginning with her debut book “Brazen Angel!”

The Brazen Angel loved masquerade balls! The balls allowed her to enchant wealthy aristocrats and rob them. When one or two of those “gentlemen” have a friend like Giles, Marquess of Trahern, who was bored and had special skills, he too was at the balls trying to catch her in the act.

Who Giles really needed to catch or stop from running away was his future wife that his father chose for him. However, Lady Sophia was hard to catch, she kept duping each family member into thinking she was with one relation, but was off doing something else.

Lady Sophia had other plans before a quick marriage. Giles didn’t have time at the moment to find his betrothed because he had an important mission in France. He went to track down the Brazen Angel who was connected to the death of his friend and colleague, a woman with familiar eyes!

Join us as we discuss an adventure, family-oriented, secret identity historical romance with our fellow bookstagrammer @bookishlyruby!
