This week I am joined by Shani and Bridget from the Romance at a Glance podcast! We talk about their current season, where they’re focusing on dark romances, and about podcasting.

Then, we talk about a book. For this episode, we all read Draekon Mate: Exiled to the Prison Planet.

Bodice Tipplers
Bodice Tipplers: The Leopard Tree by Valerie Parv

You guys. We have done it. We have finally gone so far down the rabbit hole of vintage romance that we have found one that is not on Goodreads . Welcome to The Leopard Tree by Valerie Parv, reigning queen of Australian romance! There’s a UFO! It’s Australia! He’s a… he’s an ex-military rodeo bronco buster and she makes ugly jewelry and has an awful fiancé and she’d like to pretend that he’s from outer space but really there’s a sad and sordid little crime story! I dunno, all crammed into fewer than 200 pages!

First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy
First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy: March 19, 2021

A bit about openings today, what they need to include and how to make that precious real estate count. Also, how structure and plot arc can vary from book to book, along with thoughts on a series arc.

First Cup of Coffee – March 22, 2021: A cat photobomb today – and subsequent podcaster injury. Also how same cat had a major jailbreak, spring garden cleanup, and why I sometimes (often?) make choices that aren’t the best businesswise.

First Cup of Coffee -March 23, 2021:On good advice and bad for writing sex scenes, books and movies I recommend for research, along with a request for your recs! Also how Grace Draven and I prove, yet again, that we really are Wondertwins.

First Cup of Coffee – March 25, 2021: Why there’s no such thing as original work, how this is a misguided idea and not something to worry about – just like you can’t accidentally plagiarized anything. You can’t steal ideas anymore than you can steal oxygen.
