    Bookstagramming the naughty bits with Laura Nelson

    Bookstagramming the naughty bits with Laura Nelson

    New year, new episode! This week, I chat with book blogger Laura Nelson, also known as Tangents and Tissues. Laura and I dig into how she ended up as a book blogger and bookstagrammer, her fave tropes and heat levels, and how reading is a form of therapy for her.  I loved recording this episode. Laura has been a massive supporter of my writing, and I wanted to point a spotlight on the incredible work she does for the author community. Laura, you are a star! xo

    It's a Steam Scenes solocast! Here’s to a steam filled 2023

    It's a Steam Scenes solocast! Here’s to a steam filled 2023

    Happy New Year and good riddance 2022! This is a special Steam Scenes solocast where I get very, very real about 2022, share my word for 2023, and read a naughty bit from Free Falling, the fifth book in my LA Rock Star Romance series.
     
    I wasn’t planning on being so honest for this New Year episode, but I spent much of the holiday week in contemplation (also called, running through my financials in preparation for tax season).  And I realized that we never talk about the hard shit. I probably look like I’m out there killing it to so many people, but the reality is pretty different. And I wanted to talk about that because you know what? It’s okay if your year wasn’t what you wanted it to be. Mine definitely wasn’t. 
     
    You can grab Free Falling over at Amazon (it’s in KU!). And if you would rate and review Steam Scenes on your favorite podcast app, I’d love you forever. It helps with this podcast’s visibility (and also gives my ego a little boost). 
     
    Cheers to an epic 2023. I think we all deserve it!

    Short and steamy with Tarin Lex

    Short and steamy with Tarin Lex

    Tarin Lex writes short-form steamy romance – think under 10,000 words. How do you get a full story told in such a compressed story? Tarin explains her process. Plus we talk about what makes forbidden romance so sexy and how she feels like as a writer she has permission to go really over the top because she’s writing shorter works  Plus, I read a steamy bit from her book Wanted by the Hitman (which she wrote as an experiment to get into darker, edgier work).

    Vulnerable conversations with Harper Michaels

    Vulnerable conversations with Harper Michaels

    An unexpected conversation with author Carol Shaughnessy at DragonCon propelled Harper Michaels into finishing “ the damn thing.” She ended up releasing eight books (eight!) in a year! In this Steam Scenes episode, Harper and I talk about outing ourselves to our friends and family about our steamy romance writing, how we are still terrified when we release a book, and how to redeem irredeemable characters. Plus I read a steam bit from her novel Chasing You (check it out on Amazon).

Unique and interesting writing podcoast

As a romance author myself, I find Elle’s conversations with other writers in the genre, focusing on the steamy bits, to be a really refreshing change from the other writing podcasts I’ve listened to! Having this focus allows for the conversations to get really in-depth while still being a lot of fun. And Elle’s voice is just perfect for narrating the actual “steam scenes.” Definitely recommend that authors writing romance at any heat heat level—I think you’ll learn a lot!

Fun twist on romance novel podcasts

Romance readers will love this clever podcast. Elle talks to authors about what inspires them to write their steamiest scenes, and the conversations are funny, frank and often downright hot. Elle’s a fantastic, relaxed host, and I love the mix of authors she brings on.
