Dear Bitches, Smart Authors Podcast: September 22, 2011: Romangst

It’s podcast time! This week we are talking about what I call “romangst:” angst romance at its finest and most emotional. Jane and I have an intense discussion of romangst and what makes it good & believable, from historicals to Harlequin Presents. We talk about whether the angsty character be healed, and if we can believe that someone who is that fucked up will have a happy ending as functioning or mostly functioning adult.

Also: you may notice that at recording time, I had a cold. Enjoy Stuffy Sarah. I even edited out two sniffles, a sneeze, and the possible sound of my dog hoerking on the rug. You’re welcome! Nothing says “romangst” like dog hoerk.

As per your requests, here are the books we discussed in this podcast – heads up, there are a LOT OF THEM.
