In this series, Kate and I talk about some of our favourite Australian romance authors, with some digression into our to-be-read lists. This time we talk about erotic romance. One thing I didn’t notice until I replayed our chat is that none of these authors have an Australian publisher. And they should!

Kate and Kat chat about romance fiction in Australia. Part 2 of a series of vodcasts for Aussie Author Month 2012.

So we’re hoping you enjoyed our first vodcast enough to listen to the rest of our conversation on romance fiction in Australia.

This time we chat about the publishing and marketing side of romance fiction, though still very much from a reader’s perspective. We talk about where we buy our books, reminisce about our first Mills & Boon, and whinge about discuss how we think Australian publishers are doing when it comes to romance fiction.

Kate and Kat chat about romance fiction in Australia. Part 1 of a series of vodcasts for Aussie Author Month 2012.

So the lovely and extremely knowledgeable bookworm Kate (@katydidinoz) and I have joined forces to do something a little different for Aussie Author Month. Look, mum, we’ve made a vodcast!

I’ve been thinking about doing vodcasts for a while, and sharing camera time with Kate seemed a lot more fun and a lot less talking-to-a-wall-ish than doing it on my own, so I’m chuffed that we’ve been able to do this.

In this video we touch on what it’s like the to read romance books in Australia, our experiences with local romance communities, the general awesomeness of Australian romance authors, romance in the broader literary community and, most important of all, what we’re currently reading.

It’s our first attempt, so please forgive the shady (ha!) lighting and dubbing problems. I would fix these if I could but, as you will come to realise from my over-enthusiastic use of iMovie themes, this was my first time. (Vodcast deflowering, yay!) Getting this up on YouTube almost broke me.

And now I have run out of stalling tactics, so here goes. Enjoy!
