Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast: August 30, 2011 - Bigger! Better! Longer!

We’re back with a new – and longer! – episode. This time around we’re talking about popular series in romance, specifically small town community romances which Jane has a particular name for. Just wait. It’s awesome.

If you’ve ever wondered why it is that we so seldom choose a Save the Contemporary title, you’ll learn in this episode. We’ll also talk about streak reading, what we’re reading that’s awesome, and we’ll discuss some books that are coming out this fall. Plus, there’s special extra awesome erotica excerpt reading. Mwaaahahaha.

You can subscribe to our feed at Feedburner or at iTunes.

Mp3 is available for download as well. PLEASE for the love of God right click and save, k? Esosoft and I will thank you.

If you have content suggestions, tips on how to do this whole thing better, or general wtf-ery comments, email us. It’s all welcome because a) we are new to this and b) we don’t really know what we are doing so the wtf comments are probably all valid. The email address for the podcast is sbjpodcast@gmail.com.

Thanks to Jane, and to Sassy Outwater, who provided the new and original music for this podcast, and will be featured in future podcasts as well. This week’s song features Sassy on the fiddle and JD on the piano, and is called “Fiddler on the Loose.”

    Great podcast! I love the new music, too.

    Enjoyed the podcast.  The treacle factor makes me think Pancake Porn and if NFL-inspired erotica becomes popular I’m calling it Chicken and Waffles.  A combination of the two might rip a hole in the space-time continuum thus proving that carbs really are bad for you.  Now I’ll probably have weird dreams involving adirondack chairs and a handknit scarf across the street from a Roscoes. 

    Sorry, late night podcast listening makes for silly commentary.

    I think adirondack chairs should go EVERYWHERE. Including parking lots, right? Right.

    @SB Sarah:  Absolutely everywhere.  They even make Adirondack chair charms so you can take that warm, fuzzy community feeling with you no matter where you roam.  From the depths of the Pacific to the heights of Kilimanjaro, Adirondack chairs rule the world.

    Still silly in the morning, apparently.

    When you recommend a book in your podcast, can you also mention that book here? because I listen to podcasts in the car, and don’t want to stop and write down the name of the recommended book!

    thanks.

    Time49 – by the time I’m out of the car, 49 minutes will have gone by, and I’ll have forgotten the titles.

    And I believe the name of the vampire in the JR Ward books is John Matthew (his book was Lover Mine).

    I think it would be perfect to have one adirondack chair on the front cover and two on the back cover to signify the HEA, don’t you think?

    The podcast was a welcome distraction for me today because I have jitters about my 5 y.o. starting kindergarten!

    I agree with the suggestion to publish show notes with a list of titles mentioned in the podcast.

    I also would love the titles and authors of the books you rave over.  And maybe even links?  Although raving about books I can’t even get my hands on until November or December is killing me!

    That and calling JR Ward’s character “John Michael” and “John Edwards”.  As lorenet said – it’s John Matthew.  My inner fangirl was having a heart attack.

    May I please second the request for a quick write up of the books and authors you are talking about?  I ended up walking into work mentally repeating the name of one of the books so I could look it up.

    Totally off topic: do some authors get paid for product placement?  I was reading Bending the Rules by Susan Anderson and I would swear that she must be being paid to namecheck things – no other reasonable explanation came to mind and it was enormously distracting!

    I will absolutely do a listing of the books we talk about – thanks for the suggestion. That’s a DUH that I should have thought of. Sorry!

    And YES. I suck at names. John Matthew, John Edwards… one couldn’t talk and one couldn’t keep his mouth shut & his pants zipped. BIG difference. Ooops. Sorry Ward fans!

    Thank you! and thanks SBSarah for jumping on that…can you do the last one too? The book you raved about’s title keeps falling out of my head.

    I just listened to the latest podcast on the train on the way into work – the other commuters must have thought I was crazy I was laughing so much.  Thank you for making my daily commute so enjoyable.
