The prequel novella in The Casey Cort Series is always free. Download it here.

In this episode, I have a most lovely chat with bestselling author of romance and women’s fiction, Jenny Gardiner. We talk about indie publishing as a kind of a feminist movement. The last ten years have been a watershed moment for women moving from publishing’s pink ghetto to the top of the business’ food chain.

In this episode, I have a wonderful chat with USA Today Bestselling author, Lisa Hughey. We talk about life in California, Massachusettes, contemporary romance, and romantic suspense. Lisa thinks romances give readers hope for the future. (about 38:00) Love isn’t about finding someone who is not perfect, but perfect for you. (about 1:17:50) Also, Lisa talks about reading story as a validation that the choices one has made have put them on the right path. OMG I’m having a FANGIRL moment. Lisa has a book coming out today that wasn’t mentioned on the podcast. It’s called Speakeasy and it’s in Sarina Bowen’s world. I think Sarina is one of the best working romance authors out there.
