    The value of smut with Emma Barry

    The value of smut with Emma Barry

    On this episode of Steam Scenes, Emma Barry is on the steam seat! Emma is a teacher, novelist, recovering academic, and former political staffer. She lives with her high school sweetheart and a menagerie of pets and children in Virginia, and she occasionally finds time to read and write.
     
    Emma and I talk about how English studies weaponizes taste, how any writing you do is intrinsically valuable, and that literary fiction and romance are not as far apart as readers (ahem some readers) think. Then we get real about how sometimes we have a hard slog through the rough patches of being a writer and Emma shares how she managed to overcome it. And I read a steamy excerpt from her book Chick Magnet. Buckle in, my friends, we’re in for a steamy ride!

    Low Angst with Lee Blair

    Low Angst with Lee Blair

    Lee Blair is on the Steam Seat this week and this is an awesome conversation. We drill down into what makes a book low angst, why she prefers writing low angst to high, and what drew her to writing in the M/M genre. Plus I read a naughty bit from her book Eternal Hoptimist (I am HERE for the punny titles!) and we talk about her excellent podcast Low Angst Library.

    Getting kinky with Maggie Sims

    Getting kinky with Maggie Sims

    Maggie Sims went from romance addict to romance author when she was laid off from her tech job. She scratched her author itch by penning a contemporary romance. But when the pay phones in the novel dated it real quick, she decided to go all in on Regency romance. We dig into how language does a lot of work for us, erotic romance vs. erotica, and whether she will ever pull away from the kink. Plus I read a steamy bit from her book Sophia’s Schooling, the first book in her School of Enlightenment Series. (BTW, Regency fans, book 3 in the series, Althea's Awakening, just released in April!)

    Slow-burn romance author Sandra Young joins me on the latest episode of Steam Scenes! Find out how vintage fashion inspires her writing, learn about her wild background as an actor and rock and roll frontwoman, and how her different creative lives fuel each other, and why she opted to lower the heat level of her book. Plus we dissect women’s fiction and romance fiction, and I read an intimate scene from her debut romance novel Diving Vintage.

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.
