BT002. These people just need a cuddle

BT002. These people just need a cuddle

Guests: Kate Cuthbert & Sarah Wendell | Host: Kat Mayo | Audio producer : Rudi Bremer | Recorded: 4/11/12 GenreCon

One of the things I love about our new podcast is the fabulous artwork, which was created by Clarisse Djaja. And if you like the book colours, we’re hoping to gradually change the blog colours to match. But one step at a time!

Anyway, today’s podcast episode follows on from my chat with Sarah Wendell and Kate Cuthbert at GenreCon 2012. Coming up: we talk about Georgette Heyer’s books, heroines who shoot heroes, whether or not blogging or editing has changed the way we read books, tentacle porn, the blurry line between shapeshifter sexy times and bestiality, how much porn informs erotic romance, and sooo many books and authors. We also whinge about anal sex. (Okay, I whinged.)

Here are links to all the interesting books, author and miscellaneous fun things we talk about.
