After my session at the Melbourne Writers Festival, I found myself hanging out in the festival area with a few readers and a book seller — an altogether awesome group of people who were nice enough to stand still while I asked them nosy questions. I asked them each who they are, what they do, what they're reading, and why they're awesome.
The sound is a bit uneven (I'm sorry!!) and I apologize for that. The handheld recorder was struggling with the location, the wind and the different voices, so I am sorry for the odd quality. That said, I wanted to share with you the discussion of some excellent romance fans in Australia.
Thank you to the lovely ladies who hung out and subjected themselves to my interviewing.
Here are some of the books we talk about during this podcast (get ready – this is a long list!):
The music you're listening to was provided by Sassy Outwater. This is Caravan Palace, and this track is called “Cotton Mouth,” from their album Panic in the USA, available at Amazon, iTunes, and wherever you like to buy music.
This podcast is brought to you by Jove, publisher of New York Times bestselling author Jayne Castle’s newest paranormal romance, Deception Cove, available wherever books are sold:

On Rainshadow Island, two dangerous Old World crystals are missing, igniting a paranormal storm. Drake thinks Alice is the key to finding them, and proposes they head there, but only after a Marriage of Convenience.
Alice’s honeymoon on Rainshadow is guaranteed to be memorable, as the island—and the passion between her and Drake—is about to explode…
