Jane and I discuss an email from a reader looking for historical recommendations. Plus, we find out what happens when an author emails us a pitch: Sarah does something terrible (unintentionally!) to Jane. This bit, which starts about about 9 minutes, is a bit of a spoiler, but the description is very intriguing. And we end with a pronunciation correction for Sarah (oops) and a glowing recommendation for a book – with a request for more like it.
Here are the books we discussed in this podcast:
This podcast is brought to you by New American Library, publisher of Come to Me Quietly—the brand-new New Adult novel from New York Times bestselling sensation A.L. Jackson.
Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It’s been six years since she’s seen her brother’s best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it’s time to move on.
Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…
Just when she opens her heart to her friend, Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can’t resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he’s begging to be saved from his demons—the memories of the day he destroyed his family.
As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly’s judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction? Come to Me Quietly is a New Adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as tempting as he is trouble. You can find Come to Me Quietly wherever books are sold.
Our music in each episode is provided by Sassy Outwater, who is most excellent. This podcast features a song called “Passport Panic” and it’s by Peatbog Faeries from their CD Dust. You can find them at their website, or at iTunes.
