    #118: Harper Cracked the Flow Code

    Happy Thanksgiving to our American listeners!

     
    Harper is about to send her editor the manuscript of her next book, And Then She Kissed Me, which will be out at the end of January.
    Not a lot of publishing news this week, because we’ve been very preoccupied with maybe buying a house.
     
    We watched all six episodes of Annika, a Scottish scandi noir with a humorous touch. We enjoyed it very much, especially Nicola Walker.
    Caroline’s book this week is The Thing About Clare by Imogen Clark, about a family called Bliss!

    #117: Harper Has Many Thoughts

    #117: Harper Has Many Thoughts

    We’re back after an extended break! But we’ve been busy during the break: Harper wrote a book which will be called And Then She Kissed Me; we published the audio of That Woman Next Door; and we published an age-gap boxset, The Power of Love.
     
    Of course, we’ve watched a lot of television since our last podcast episode. We enjoyed The L Word Gen Q, but it is not without its issues. We loved Work in Progress. Harper has been rewatching Californication, which she’s enjoying, but in this day and age it is quite problematic. Our tv highlight of the week is Strictly Come Dancing. Even Caroline gets emotional when she watches John and Johannes. We can’t go out on a Saturday night until it’s over.
     
    Last weekend we went to see the movie Aline, inspired by the life of Harper’s idol Celine Dion, and Harper has thoughts.
     
    Caroline’s book of the week is Little Pleasures by Claire Chambers.

    #116: Harper Fancies Herself a Comedian

    This week’s big news is that That Woman Next Door is out now in ebook and print! The book is a slow-burn opposites attract with lots of lesbian processing.

    Harper is still not writing so she’s been occupying herself on Instagram.

     
    We enjoyed the new season of Sex Education a lot, even though it was a bit more serious than previous seasons. It’s definitely more educational than the Sex Ed we got in school. We also watched the first episode of Alma's Not Normal on the BBC.
     
    Caroline’s book this week is The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller, which might not be for everyone, but she enjoyed so much.

    #115: Harper Had to Choose Between Angelina and Padma

    #115: Harper Had to Choose Between Angelina and Padma

    There is lots of audio news this week! About That Kiss (narrated by Abby Craden) is now available everywhere, and At Your Most Beautiful (narrated by Angela Dawe) is now out as well.
     
    That Woman Next Door is going through the very last proofread before going to the retailers and Harper is enjoying it so much. She’s still not writing so she’s been on Instagram much more, which is not necessarily working out.

     
    We rewatched season one of The L Word: Generation Q in preparation for when season two is available to us, and Harper wonders if there are armpit hair merkins.

    #114: Harper Is Pregnant With Idea

    #114: Harper Is Pregnant With Idea

    In this week’s episode, Caroline has tooth ailments. Harper is still on a writing break, but working on the final edits on That Woman Next Door, which will be out in ebook, audio, paperback AND a swanky hardcover.  She’s also trying to be social-media-savvy.
    Harper is with book idea, but she has to wait a few weeks before she can begin writing it. Meanwhile, the Two Hearts Trilogy read along is still happening in the Facebook Group.
     
    We’re enjoying Vigil on the BBC, which stars queer lady favourite Suranne Jones. We’ve also been watching old Silent Witness episodes. Harper has had some fan fiction in her head for years about Sam Ryan and Jane Tennyson (Prime Witness or Silent Suspect?)
    Harper has discovered a new favourite podcast: the Period Power podcast.
     
    Caroline’s book of the week is All Adults Here by Emma Straub, which has quite a bit of queer content and was very enjoyable.

    #113: Harper Dies of Embarrassment During the Episode

    #113: Harper Dies of Embarrassment During the Episode

    Apologies for skipping last week. Visiting friends and cat sitting duties made it impossible to record an episode.
     
    That Woman Next Door is available for pre-order here! Harper reveals the story behind the unfortunate naming choice of one of its characters.

     
    Harper's two attempts at writing Pink Bean 11 didn’t work out so she’s taking an extended break from writing. She’s decided to organise another read along in her Facebook group, this time of Two Hearts Trilogy. Join the group to participate. And don’t forget to answer the three questions to gain entry!
     
    Tv shows we loved recently: The Unusual Suspects (Miranda Otto is so much better than Nicole K.), The Chair (with Holland Taylor for the queer lady interest), and F*** You Very, Very Much (a hilarious Flemish show about messy Millennials.) And we rewatched the first two seasons of Sex Education which is excellent. Plus it has Gillian Anderson, so what’s not to like.
     
    Caroline’s book of the week is This Must Be the Place by Maggie O’Farrell, which she loved.

Thank you!

This podcast always gives me the warm and fuzzies, makes me giggle, and gives this reader a glimpse into the inner workings of a favourite author! Thanks so much!

Very fun

This podcast feels like sitting down for a drink with a couple of old friends. Well worth the time!
