    FAN GIRL SQUEEE!!  Another Enter the Haggis track!!  I’ve been a Haggis Head for years and I shouted with joy on the bus (startling the other riders for sure) when I listed to DBSA #45 and heard “Martha Stuart”.  It’s a perfect storm of things I love: romance + Haggis (the band). :)  Thank you, Sassy Outwater, for another wonderful track.

    *sigh* I’d kill to go to RT. Or RWA. Kill, I tell ya! It sounds like so much fun, though as shy as I am, I think it would probably take me most of the week to finally get completely involved in all the fun. :) Still, it’s on my bucket list; maybe one of these years…. Really, my dream would be if it was ever held in UT. But let’s be real here, that’s probably never going to happen. What romance readers we do have here in the state seem to be very quiet about what they read and who they are, at least online. I’ve only found one or two bloggers/readers online that live in UT. But there must be more closet romance readers here, as even my small town grocery store stocks mostly romance in their spinning rack of books. :)

    Great podcast, I enjoyed listening!

    Alison Packard’s Love in the Afternoon
    Tamara Morgan’s The Derby Girl
    Amy Raby’s Assassin’s Gambit
