Heart to Heart podcast with Sarah Wendell and a mystery reader

2014 Heart to Heart logo - Destiny RomanceGuys, I’ve been keeping a huge secret these past couple of months, and now I can finally tell you all about it. Destiny Romance has invited me to host a monthly podcast called Heart to Heart.

And today you can download the first episode! You can find the download link at the Destiny blog. (Note: You don’t need to download iTunes to listen to the podcast. You can play it from your browser.)

Insert all the exclamation marks here!!!

Our first episode features an interview with Sarah Wendell from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books. Sadly, I don’t get to talk to her in this episode—this is a chat she did with Destiny editor Carol George last year when Sarah was in Australia speaking at various conferences and literary festivals. (If you’re into podcasts, I’m sure you already know about it, but just in case, make sure you also check out the DBSA podcast with Sarah and Jane Litte from Dear Author.)

In what we’re hoping will be a regular feature, the podcast also includes a reading from a new release. This first reading, from Irrepressible You by Georgina Penney, is super special because…well, you’ll have to listen to find out. Let me just say that there was a lot of girlish giggling while we were taping that segment!

Also, the music that the folks over at Penguin chose for the podcast makes me happy every time I hear it.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. You can find more information on the books and events I talk about in the podcast on the Destiny blog. And if there’s anything in particular you loved (or not), let us know!

    Color me stupid. I cannot get the podcast to play from the blog–the “click here” link takes me to iTunes. There, it says “mouse over title and click play” but when I do that, there is no play button anywhere.
    Quite likely I’m missing something glaringly obvious.

    I’m so sorry! I’ve asked Destiny to embed a player from the browser if at all possible, so hopefully they’ll have the technical wizardry to make it so.

    Otherwise, the number ‘1’ to the left of the title should turn into a play button when you hover your mouse on it. If it doesn’t play immediately, it might just be loading — it takes a few minutes on my browser (it’s much faster directly on iTunes — I’m not really sure why).

    Let me know if you still have no luck with it.

    Hi, AL — I finally have a solution for you! I’m sorry it’s taken so long. You can play the podcast directly from your browser here: http://penguinbooks.libsyn.com/heart-to-heart-by-destiny-romance

    In future, I think Destiny will be embedding a player on their website. I just checked the second episode and it seems to be working fine. Let me know if you have any problems!
