Sophie Ly: Romancing her with some spaghetti – BT072

Guests: Sophie Ly and Rudi Bremer | Host: Kat Mayo | Audio producer: Rudi Bremer | Recorded: 9/06/2019 Sydney

I’ve been sitting on this episode for a little while, but hold on to your one-click buttons because Sophie Ly joins Rudi and me with a huge number of graphic novel recommendations. (But please note: not all of them are HEA romances, but we try to identify which of the titles fall into that bucket. We do also talk about the difficulty of knowing if a graphic novel series will have a romantic HEA.)

Shout out to Vikki, who tweeted in response to our #rombklove episode (EP69). If you’re on Twitter and listening to the podcast, we’d love for you to live tweet or just send us your reactions by using the hashtag #btpod.
