Late Summer Reading and Book Recommendations – BGFP episode 202

Jeff and I begin this week’s show with a recap of our recent trip to Orlando for the Podcast Movement conference, which was both fun and informative. We also discuss recent announcements about the new Love, Simon series on Disney+ as well as the potential Hollywood deal that Lucy Lennox and Sloane Kennedy revealed this week. (Sooo exciting!)

The guys talk summer TV with BH90210 and Grand Hotel. I review Silvia Violet’s second chance romance Anticipating Rejection, while Jeff reviews King Slayer by Layla Reyne.

Lisa from The Novel Approach recommends some speculative fiction and romantic suspense, including Spellbound by Allie Therin, The Marked Prince by M.A. Grant and Triangulation by Gregory Ashe. She also mentions Swipe Right for Murder by Derek Milman, which she had recently begun.

ANNOUNCING – The Big Gay Author Podcast!

I’m happy to announce that Jeff and I have launched a brand new podcast, The Big Gay Author Podcast!

This new show will detail how Jeff and I attempt to make the transition from part-time, to full-time authors of gay fiction. You can celebrate our successes and learn from our mistakes. New episode will drop every Saturday and, don’t worry, the Big Gay Fiction Podcast isn’t going anywhere. Episodes of Big Gay Fiction will continue to come out every Monday.

In the premiere episode of the Big Gay Author Podcast, Jeff and I talk about our experience at the Romance Writers of America 2019 National Conference. We discuss our impressions of the conference, our opinion on if RWA is a good fit for writers in the gay romance genre, plus we offer up some of the things we learned from the workshops we attended.

We hope you’ll join us on this new adventure!
