Cocktails and Pajamas is a podcast by book friends Jen, Natasha, and Heather who each enjoy a good cocktail and a nice set of comfy pajamas. They are a writer, a blogger, and a book seller, among other things. As active members in the book community, they wanted to try something new and fun, so Cocktails and Pajamas Podcast was born. The ladies talk about real life with authors, bloggers, editors, photographers, cover designers, models, and other professionals in the industry. Tune in to hear them talk books, the industry, and other relatable topics anyone can identify with.
