Welcome to The Wicked Wallflowers Club! We are two authors who read, write, and love everything about the romance genre. We celebrate female empowerment and sex positivity. Entertainment Weekly featured us on their "Must List" as "a compelling reminder of why the oft-dismissed genre is a real force in cultural conversations".
We’re joined this week by four incredible authors who've all been guests in the past: Tessa Dare, Joanna Shupe, Sarah MacLean, and Sophie Jordan! They tell us about their stories from their holiday anthology, How the Dukes Stole Christmas, chat about some of their holiday traditions, and answer questions from our Great Holiday Debate 2018!
We’re joined this week by award winning romance author Priscilla Oliveras to chat about how she got her start in romance, her experiences as an RWA board member (and some of the challenges the organization faces), and how her characters become like family to her. We also talk all about her Matched to Perfection series, the latest of which is Their Perfect Melody--featuring a victim's advocate heroine and a hero who's a Spanish guitar playing Chicago PD officer.
We’re joined this week by the utterly charming Gail Garriger to talk about her fabulous books, her journey into romance, and her experiences as an archaeologist!
It's our one year anniversary, and we couldn't be more honored that you've chosen to spend time with us and be part of this incredible journey! The show has grown into something much bigger than we could ever have hoped for a year ago!
We start this episode reflecting on the past year, sharing all the cool new Wicked Wallflowers stuff we're working on, and then go into a discussion of the fabulous books we've been reading lately. Fair warning, wine was consumed during the recording of this episode!
We were overly ambitious when we recorded, and the website changes aren't quite finished yet, but it should be all up, running, user friendly, and gorgeous by the end of this week, so keep an eye out!
We're joined by literary agent extraordinaire, Courtney Miller-Callihan! She answers all of our burning questions about what it means to be a literary agent, how she became one, and why she loves it!
We're joined this week by Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter, bestselling authors of some of our favorite books--and real life besties! We talk about their upcoming projects, their tortured heroes, kickass heroines, and their epic friendship. You'll find out about who wants to wear the other one's skin, the literal shrines they have to each other, and why this game of Fuck/Marry/Kill has a shockingly high body count!
We're joined by bestselling author, Maya Rodale! We discuss her outstanding new release, Duchess by Design...as well as how she started reading romance, some of the real historical inspiration for her books, why the Gilded Age is so awesome, feminism, and much more!
We're joined by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake! They are two bestselling, prolific authors who talk all about their gloriously filthy stories, their writing process, and a slew of random topics!
In this fourth edition of What We're Reading, we're joined by special guest Eva Moore! Eva is an author and admin of OSRBC (Old School Romance Book Club) on Facebook and one of the founders of a new book club on Instagram called Romanced by the Book.
