Heart to Heart podcast with Anne Gracie, Anna Cowan, C. S. Pacat and Nalini Singh (not at the same time)

2014 Heart to Heart logo - Destiny RomanceIn which I talk about a lot of things about a lot of books with a lot of authors.

I’ve been slacking off on the Yay, New Things! posts, and before I knew it, three Heart to Heart podcasts have gone by without a single post from me. (Or if I’ve posted about them, I can’t find the damn post!)

Anyway, I wanted to share these with you because I think the author interviews in these episodes are fabulous (not because of me — because of the guests!). The linked pages should have embedded players for listeners who don’t want to go through iTunes. If you have any problems accessing the podcasts, let me know!

Episode 2 –Anne Gracie

I chat with historical romance author Anne Gracie about Australian romance, the possibilities for Australian historical romance, and whether or not The Rosie Project fits in the romance genre. I also review the first two books in Kathryn Ledson’s Erica Jewell series, Rough Diamond and Monkey Business.

Episode 3 —  Anna Cowan and C. S. Pacat

I chat with Australia’s favourite debut romance author Anna Cowan and DBWAHA winner C. S. Pacat about anti-heroes and gender in romance, and a bunch of other stuff but I always forget to take notes when I replay the podcast because they’re so interesting! Cat also reads an excerpt from Volume 1 of The Captive Prince.

Episode 4 — Nalini Singh

I chat with NZ author Nalini Singh about her hugely popular Psy-Changeling and Guild Hunter series, including some tidbits about her latest book, Shield of Winter (we get a bit naughty towards the end!). This was my first phone interview, and for anyone keeping track, it seems we are inching closer to the half hour mark with our podcasts. This could be an accident — they’re supposed to be 15 minutes long — or it could be part of my nefarious plan to chat with authors for longer. I also talk about five of my favourite heroes in paranormal romance. Can you guess who they are? (And if you agree or disagree, I’d love to hear your own list in the comments!)

I’d love to know what you think of the podcasts, especially if there are any parts you love or parts you think aren’t really working for you. And if you have an author you’d like to hear on Heart to Heart, let me know. We’re slowly mastering the art of phone interviews, so I’m hoping we can feature more international authors in future episodes!

    I really, really enjoy your podcasts, because you converse with your guests as fellow romance readers, not just as promotional guests–if that makes sense?

    Thanks, AZ! That’s something that the folks at Destiny and I discussed when we were brainstorming podcast ideas, so I’m glad I’m not dropping the ball! Plus I’d feel like an idiot if I tried to do anything promotional so it’s just as well! lol
