    S02.E31 - BOOKISH WOULD YOU RATHER

    S02.E31 - BOOKISH WOULD YOU RATHER

    @catwynnauthor is still on an editing strike so instead of a lovely, lovely guest episode today, Cat and @sjtillyauthor answer a bunch of ridiculous Bookish Would You Rathers. Honestly, its a lot of fun and you should play along. We'll be sure to post the Would You Rathers in polls on our Instagram because we are benevolent gods indeed and who doesn't love interactive podcasting.

    S02.E30 - WHEN YOU'RE A WRITER AND YOU JUST CAN'T ANYMORE

    S02.E30 - WHEN YOU'RE A WRITER AND YOU JUST CAN'T ANYMORE

    @catwynnauthor and @sjtillyauthor talk about that frustrating and inevitable time in every writer's life: the f*ck it, I can't just do it anymore time. They also discuss ways they strive to show sensitivity to all readers in their books and why FBoy island is a social experiment that makes men tell on each other.

    As always, please listen, enjoy and write us a review so we know we should carry on.

Kiss My Smut 💋🖤 ,

Two spicy authors talk smutty books and writing

I am an avid romance reader that beta and arc reads, blogs, booktok… you get the point. Listening to these girls make me want to join in and hang with them. They are always having fun talking about their topics and what they are passionate about - writing and reading spicy romance. 😉
