"So, welcome onto the podcast. Samantha thank you so much for having me. I'm so excited. Yeah. I'm really looking forward to talking with you about meditation and in particular breath work and I thought that we might want to do it in that order as it seems to be the trajectory in your soon to be released book hungry for happiness, stop emotional eating, and start loving yourself that that book is coming out at the end of September. So this is the this podcast is to dropping a couple of weeks. Before that. So I thought that we would talk about this. Is that okay with you haven't lately unless to excellent. Excellent. So let's begin with with hungry for happiness this the book I I read it It's it's part healing memoir. Can Apart guided introspection and meditations and and also this sort of. Part can a best friend encouragement like you're like this not really a coach like this like your your girlfriend come on. Let's do this. You know so. Can You? Can you tell us about your healing journey that we read about in the book? Absolutely I love how you explain it like that you know my my intention for Reading For writing that book was to write it to just my best friend you know that that felt sense of. I understand you I get it. I was there I know how terrible it can feel when you are in a battle with food in your body. So I'm grateful that the final product came out like that. So I grew up as a dancer and actress when I was quite young and dealt with all kinds of body image issues growing up. I can remember being very young in the bathtub just feeling. This. Felt Santa, feeling, discuss it in my body, which was a feeling that I felt often when I looked in the mirror at at young age and that then manifested into an eating disorder emotional eating restricting overeating all sorts of things when I was about eighteen. And I entered into this period of my life that I. Call My Diet Depression years where. I was on over fifty diets in less than four years and. Truly had no idea how to just eat like a normal person like that was a impossible task for me at that time, I can remember waking up some mornings thinking to myself like a hi, can I just can't wait to go to bed because the thoughts in my mind were so just honestly abusive and just my level of body image. The the severity in which I hated my body was just through the roof and so. I began trying to try to heal my my emotional eating through dieting. So I was going on all sorts of different diets, and of course, just making the making things worse. What we need to realize what I needed to realize that time is emotional eating and and disordered eating is all in inside job and the Maury trying to manipulate and control and mess with our food the worse it actually gets. and. So I can remember about ten years ago reading eat pray love and. It was a story where she went to Bali and she right? Elizabeth. Yeah and he liked poker with dicks. He she found this healer in Bali. That poker with East Dickson and Blah Blah Blah Blah long story short. So I'm like, all right that's what I'm going to do. So I bought a one way ticket to Bali I flew to Bali and I found this exact healer that she wrote about in her book I drove this I I got I got on a scooter scooter got on like a taxi scooter and drove to this man's home. And he barely spoke any English and he started poking me with his sticks and. He, then just has to be your brains broken. And I was like Oh God. Okay. What's going on here? And so he goes you think too much. You have too much thinking and I was like you're so right I really do. And so this was a point in my life where I I couldn't tell the story I had was I couldn't meditate. And I would say I would sit there and meditation and my brain would be going a million miles a minute. And thinking of all sorts of different things I would get up after twenty minutes and. Feel more stressed out than when I initially sat right because a lot of people's experience. And I know you're a pro meditators I, could've used you back in the day. So for me meditation was a challenge but everyone in their dog was telling me that meditation was going to be the path for me to heal my disordered eating will that mean such an interesting position because here's this thing that apparently has all these amazing benefits which it does and I know that now but I couldn't do it to save my

"dick" Discussed on Dick of the Week
"Dick Dick Dick Dick the. During. The week. Dick. Dick Dick Dick. Hello, and welcome to this episode of Dick. The Week I am Liz Circle and I will be hosting by myself which you know what that means. It's Dick Around with Liz volume I don't know at this point I'll have to go back and see. What episode this is of the mini. Episodes that we do when Stephanie or another host can't be with. So. Anyway. Welcome I apologize it's been a hot minute. life has just been a little bonkers across the board for everybody. So. I do apologize for that. Hopefully, we can get back on track whether Stephanie is able to record right now or if I find some people to co host with me remotely or whatever the thing might be but anyway I hope you've been doing well. Normally I tell you what I've been reading, which has been a lot so I'll keep it. Kinda. Simple. One book I read recently is called boyfriend aerial by Alexis Hall and it is probably one of my favorite books I've read this year in twenty twenty. It is a a male male relationship in it takes place in England and it's about this Guy Luke who he's he himself isn't famous per se but he has famous parents, which means he's kind of grown up in the limelight and he has gotten some bad press recently, that could make him lose his job. So he has to find a respectable boyfriend to kind of help fix his image a friend sets him up with this guy. Oliver and initially they hate each other or he thinks I hate each other he hates him. But in any good fake relationship enemy to lovers, everything works out in the end and it has some really great humor in a the characters are really lovable. but also flawed like this author did a great job of showing how endearing they can be. But also how realistic and how. Pain driven they can be but it's wonderful and I, highly highly recommend it. I also read real fake love by PIPPA Kirk PIPPA grant who which. Was this also a fake relationship? Am I on a fake relationship kick right now this is a fake relationship one. Okay. This is one that he's a professional baseball player from a very big Italian family and his grandma. Put this like family, curse on him and So she just he just wants to get his grandma and the rest of his family to be off his back. So he gets his fake girlfriend. In the two of them live together and you know. It all just works out in the end, but it's hilarious hypocrite make some really really funny bucks and her characters are. Always amusing. This one had me laughing out loud a lot. Some sure I sounded really silly. Read it in my in my basement while my husband was working and me just like giggling nonstop but hey, might as well embrace it and the most recent book I finished as like yesterday was take a hint Danny Brown by Talia Hiebert. This was also a really, really good, but this is book to the Brown sisters. The first one was get a life, Khloe Brown, which I also enjoyed but I like this one better Danny Bram. Is the second oldest of the sisters She is really driven bad ass girl woman. She is overweight and bisexual, and she's beautiful and she is very driven She's working again her PhD she wants to be just like the best in her field and doesn't have time for Romance. She just wants to fuck buddy well, enter Zafir security guy for the. Academic building she works in and they become good friends and so this starts like about six months into them being friends and he's definitely more a relationship kind of guy and the two of them just keep getting thrown together and she's like Oh this the universe telling me that he's my fuck buddy should be and he's like Oh. No I've secretly really liked her this entire time I've known her but sure sure we can do the sex. That's fine. It won't make feelings happen. It's fine. Spoilers fine. I loved this book a lot, and the two of them are wonderful. She's such a hard ask character she's Independent. She thinks she knows what she wants in life. He's like you're soft cinnamon roll up in his field. He's expert guy. He has a major family baggage and damage that happened in his past they're both just. Feel really realistic and I'm glad I'm on the street presently of like pretty realistic characters 'cause sometimes over the top is fun but it's also nice knowing. These real flawed characters can find love to anyway. I had asked some people. If they had any questions that they might want me to answer. So I'm going to try to do that now. Okay And asked Lynn imagining characters to use who's on the cover or do you make up your own and I'm not sure if this is meaning characters I. Write or characters I'm readings on, do a two parter in terms of characters I'm reading I don't normally pay too much attention to the cover. I've noticed sometimes like they might describe a character one way within the cover model who's normally really good lucky looks a totally different way that doesn't always happen I. Know they talk about like tall strong dark hair abs than they tried to have tall strong dark hair ABS model dude or You know. Blonde. Whatever woman? They tried to do that, but it doesn't always work. and I I duNNO I. Enjoy coming up with with the characters look like a little bit more my own. When you watch or when you read a book and You, really love that book and then they make a movie out of it and see that actor and you're just like Oh, that's. Not at all, what I was imagining for that character. And it doesn't like. It's not like it ruins it but like takes a second for your brain to be like Oh. Yeah. Okay. That works I guess. But in terms of. Characters I write I typically try to find like a real live person who is my inspiration for how that character looks. So the making described them based on that. In I having to the point that I need to actually make a cover for a book yet but I imagine that's going to be really difficult if I do like real model people on the book covers. I can imagine I would just get. So stuck try and find people that looked correct. But on the flip side, I probably do more of an illustrated cover because i. just I do really like that trend and I I like that the illustrations leave it a bit more up to the reader's interpretation of what they think that character looks like because there aren't as many details and I appreciate that I do like though when you're in like a an author's reader group on facebook or rubber and they share what their inspiration was for their characters I do I like that like when people are like Oh, this character I was thinking was based off. I'm trying to think of someone who's a famous person Chris the only person I can think of right now..

It's been interesting just to see what other writers doing right now to like diversify. Their incomes. So that's been interesting. But yeah, because I've been reading all of these kind of random seeing icy these ads, I'll bookmark the ad and I'll go look and see them actually Wanna read the series from a limited.

That's just kind of basic, right 'cause covers do matter they can't be too bad. No. The definitely matters because I feel like it's the first thing people see and so if it is.

Don't think there's a single one that's like not scripted on some level or like. Producers spend a Lotta time getting things to go the way they want. Exactly I'm. Just watching it you can kind of see where like maybe this has been..

It's not anything serious show but the first is called it's complicated and so she used to Babysit for them when she was a teenager a now she's twenty, two and. Graduating college and But she's lived with her dad alone her whole life and it's kind of that classic Mature younger woman because she lived with. A BACHELOR WHO Never had a serious girlfriend and also never was serious when it came to anything.

"Week. Dick Dick Dick the girl folding Dick. Dick Dick Dick Dick. And welcome to this week's. Dick the we. Walk. Your host. Liz I'm the other host Stephanie, and we talk about what we love and don't live about romance novels. Yeah, we we. We mouth off quite a bit. Have, you, read anything good recently so I told you last time I've been buying these packs of books like MC Moore's of cookbooks, shifter books I just got there one of the motorcycle. Club book ones I'M NOT GONNA name names. It wasn't great, but it wasn't entertaining and I. I got through one day for like three or four days. So that was nice. I will say that Christina seat Jones had a bunch of books up for free for purchase of her. Books and I went and downloaded all of those ones I hadn't read yet. So I was pretty excited about that and the most REC-. It's actually been I've been reading while all wet pad has been a bunch of very dramatic books that I'm not that Keaton to. Can Read I get the silly drama that all the heart break. So yeah the Nice for me, but I've been Kinda like instead of I've written two thousand words since the first of July. 'CAUSE I had every intention of doing nattering. Yes so I've done two thousand words and still haven't finished this chapter. Yeah. That's been my life. pretending like I'M GONNA. Get my life together. 'cause I'm working on it. List of things I wanted. Do sure you my Patriot on all going. Yes, that's my new. My new goal is to get my Patriot going. Semi regret that I didn't just. Sign up back before they changed shit. Yeah, I don't know how changing shit really affects things I I don't. I. Think if you're a tiny fish, it doesn't really. I think it's I think it's big fish and another from the Creator set. It sounds like it's from the user side that the Changes Madman. Win. Money came out but I could totally be wrong. I know I signed up before the changes happened and they've recently took my page dogs. I haven't done anything with that. which is that was kind of as I should probably do something that page there unpublished it or whatever I still have it, but these unpublished it can see it, but I was talking to a friend. She does it and she's a romance writer in parental writer, and she was like two hundred, almost three hundred subscribers. I guess that's what they're called an shaded. Patriot yet. So she's got about three hundred of them and she makes probably about seven to eight hundred bucks a month. which is like a nation of change in like that? Yeah, and I work his Edison's death, and so the so this is this is kind of the the plan. I guess the Wadis this year, because of past years issues, and like them calling people calling bullshit on them. They're opening it to any book that you had published from two thousand seventeen on so basically my entire wet had every story I have posted can be is up for could be up for Eddie. I submit it. It for Oh Eddie, which they're still doing that long form application for it versus issue you know Hashtag at or whatever interesting so I think the plan is I'm going to clean stuff up I. Don't know they're gonNA. Give them my entire. The mostly nut version of it. I think I'M GONNA. Clean Up. What's already there in if they don't like it? That's fine whatever but NBA at its and then once the white. He's been announced in everything. I'm going to start taking stuff down. Patriot on books that are finished. You'RE GONNA move to Amazon. That's GonNa be the pipeline, so it's going to be like I write a chapter. I edited as best it can. It goes up on Patriots. Finish the book. Send it to editor or are getting editor. Do something with it. And, then I get ready for Amazon and then it comes off patriotic and goes, Amazon and analyst with the final had Al. put like the first few chapters or am I too? It's like a month behind saying that some writers do yeah because I don't plan on doing Kendall Unlimited, I don't know yet I've decided I have a friend that it's really working for. have another friend who just has all her books at three ninety nine and that's really working for her. A. Matter of series. Do you have enough books out to push people? Yeah I. I think you know having that backlog is a really big deal. Yeah, and I think that's what this is. Why the patient things really appealing to me or this method that I'm going to try to do because it's can build a backlog on Patriot on, and they get it ended up and basically have Beta readers and move it like in Jemison. That's like how she started she. She's written. Books that haven't been published yet. She writes chapters. Sins up to readers. like lots of writers do this so. 'cause then you get you get A. It's basically Beta eaters people are. Engaged enough to pay for your writing, and then they can leave comments on the chapters, and then you can use it when you go to edit you know so. That's. Why pets kind of you know those aren't people that are going to pay for anything so either. Comments might be helpful, but it's not. It's not you're not writing to your market like we've discussed before like. Don't right to people that you don't want reading your book. Anyway. A Yeah I, definitely starting to really see the value in that finding your tribe idea on writing in general like my friend Karma. She's writing and she's found hers, and she's pretty successful now because of that so like finding where you right well and what people like so? Let's so intimidating. Figure out, but it's also see that's the stuff that makes it easier to like you're. The people that you want reading your stuff are the people that it ended today like what you like. Right now like I I'm not gonNA. That's I. think that's why I'm kind of like trying to like think of it that way because I don't want to cater to anything in a as I start thinking about what readers like. That's usually when my stories fall off adding I, get writer's block and a half to take a month or two you often all that I'm just writing what I have outlined and what I enjoy I was thinking it comes out way better, and it sounds like to me, and it's not whatever forced even when I'm purposely using voice isn't line you know. That's my life later now, but right now. I have like a notepad with all this written down, and I have done nothing towards this life plan. But look at it and go. That would be nice, so I need to get my sleep in order to like I. told You I've been sleeping so and you to stop doing that because I. Sleep during Serena's nap instead of being productive for that two hours. Yeah, let's me what's going on with you. You know I really didn't make a fucking life plan since I am not working and trying. Trying to focus on writing and all that, so I got an episode, my first draft of an episode for Space Merca finished and sent to the writer's room. and that's good. I have been working with my friends, Sami. We Zoom on Tuesdays to talk about my book and figuring out like what the fuck I'm doing I ended up really changing some things with it so now it's like. Oh really major rewrite is going to have to happen, which is really intimidating, but I'm trying to figure out. I like what scenes that I have. Can I still use what fits wear in the like the beat? kind of structure of romance, so that's kind of where I'm at right now with that hopefully can actually really start moving forward. Sooner than later. Nia, stop like watching Netflix instead. Focus. I watched I watched all of sweep last night all fifteen episodes. I'm obsessed with this net flicks reality show right now called single wives. It's Australian women that it's for women that have been married before, and if either are divorced or widows, and our looking for love again, and they've just been out of the dating game for a long time, and so they're working with this like professional. Date like love adviser kind of guy. which is really making the on alert right like every time I get into a reality show like this just makes you want to write. Romance novels based on it. Now, that's that's that's real. Every I mean you know, but my note that I have on my phone where he just put every idea that I have for romance novel Loggins Buried Tonight He never when I'm looking for social notes. Don't make sense like. I A note that just says the.

"Tonal rape edge there's by the when he literally before they have sex on that fucking boat, which is like their first consensual, whatever who unquote consensual I don't consider consensual. He knocked her in the fucking ocean. I couldn't I. 'cause they were finding. That lie at this point I was pretty much drinking. So I like I also two hours to get through forty five minutes listen. That's why fast forwarded it. I can't, but like so they go to this club, and she wears like a slutty dress or something that it was a cute dress, but whatever but he was like all upset in some guy tries to rape her, and so he like kills him, and then and then he blames her for having to kill. And then she's like you were in the only smart thing she's ever says Oh. You're blaming me for almost being raped health. Fuck you okay good. You have sent you a reasonable. And then they get into a tussle, and she falls over the side of the fucking yacht, and then he's like he's like devastated like Omega Omega and jumps over and saves her because of her heart, or whatever like she. wrote as he. Mentioned, he matches her heart condition in the first three minutes with the knowing each other like he know that We asked there in the cabin of the. She's like looking at him. All don't grow like. Don't play with me and then there's a blowjob scene again. Because apparently, that's number. One thing we gotta do okay. Can we talk a minute about because at least this blowjob? So I was like okay yeah. Jesus fucking Christ. I have never seen a blowjob like that done in a movie. That's not like a porno. You heard the slurpy noises like you saw a hint of Dick in her mouth. It was very. Like.

"We do. Dick Dick Dick Dick ago did. The week. Dick Dick Dick Dick. Act! Everybody. Welcome to this week's Dick Week I am one of your host. Liz zirk were, and I am Stephanie and Yeah I assume you know who we are at this point, but if not, we are romance, novel Lovin podcasts. Are we talking about everything? We love and hate about writing and Reading Romance Novels Yeah, and how that also goes into other mediums and we will get into tonight. Yes, because today is one of those. Those episodes that we look at a movie instead of books. And it's GonNa be a nice little I feel like it's an extended. It's like a next piece of our toxic movie. Thing we start with after I feel like this is the next logical episode if we're going to have a series of the. That should be an unofficial like podcasts within the podcast. Liz Stephanie watched toxic. Videos Home I. God oh. God, okay before we get there so for reading stuff recently. Because of because of a quarantine, a lot of people are putting box sets on. For like ninety nine cents. they're not of the highest quality. And so I have purchased like five of. A alridge the most embarrassing one is is a shifter marriage service Pack Oh God. They, like women running away from their old lives and placed with men that Lena fake wife, for whatever reason and of course they fall in love, so that was like one of the packs I bought, and then I just actually cut loose reading. All of my cereals from radish I'm no longer reading any of them. Really wise that one of the stories. It jumped the shark so hard. She changed her character so much within like six chapters was almost unrecognizable like Ooh, like the character was supposed to so the story is really just like a novella that everyone really liked to. That's kind of like her jams novellas. And so she decided to. Extend it and so everyone's like Oh cool! We love these characters. Will the extension was? She opened the relationship until threesomes and stuff, which I wasn't like against. I mean like whatever this guy had never had sex with anyone, but her so I was like sure why not? They're not very discerning about who they choose, so they sleep with people like within their like career paths or like she's a Pi and they sleep sometimes the people that are possible suspects in and like not not sound decisions. And, we get probably. Like four or five parts in before we meet the guy who could possibly threaten their relationship and it's a guy who's not interested in having a threesome truly like he doesn't want to touch the guy in the couple. He only wants to be with the main, the main hero, heroine, and and so she knows that it makes her her partner uncomfortable, so she's like we don't. We don't have to do that like I. I'll keep it purely professional because their peers. They're both Pi's. We start off in the FBI job because she. Shows that. He's bad job, but but the the the the male hero I feel weird calling him that because he's a champ Because of this, but he likes he's like no totally sleep with, and I'll just hang out in the corner, being weird and so. I think she sleeps with this other guy twice with him in the room. They never do anything without each other. and eventually the sky falls in love with her and is like trying to like. He's like basically begging to share like to be an open relationship where she is with both of them Oh and the main guy cannot hang without idea. He loves her in only her and like. So, he starts forced. He's pushing for them. The closer relationship and actually get engaged with. She's never wanted to get married. But you know through the power of love and stuff. She's like well. If this is what you need, fine, and like totally changes her whole life like she's never been in a monogamous relationship really and so she's like fine. Let's do this monogamy Yay. And like within. A chapter or two of them becoming engaged. I guess it's more than it's like probably ten chapters UPDATES. This, the skies shows up. Who is one of the guys from the three sums? It was the first guy that the male heroin hair. That the hero. He had the first guy he talked I guess And some how she's. The writer tries to backload that he's been thinking about this guy sense. They closed. The relationship been got engaged like. As, a really row sense. Yeah, like based on what you're saying. At least yes, I'm. I'm giving it a lot of credit. Right like I. We've saw within his POV, so it makes no sense. All the readers in the chat room like water. Is this coming from? But so there's like the there's like a sex tape of them gets leaked with the sky in it, and then the same day that our main heroes like. Is An artist sketching a picture, and he just so happens to also sketch this guy that they slept within the picture with his partner and you know he's like fixated, and now we find now. He's been fixated on him forever. This guy pops up out of nowhere. That hero invites him into their hotel room. Where the guy makes a pass and he's like Oh. We don't do that anymore, but. But then he ends up kissing him, and so it's like this character who was like pushing for monogamy, or whatever breaks it within like I I think the chronological time is maybe two weeks like it has not been, and so that so out of character doesn't make sense a super by phobic like suggesting that because he's discovered his by, and now he's in a committed monogamous relationship. He can't be like. He can't be committed in faithful to his partner because he's missing out on Dick basically like how it shaped, and we went so hard in the comments of in the chat room about it that then she started putting in these things about no, it's not bad says it's about it's it's him. It's just him and it's like you can't back. Walk it that the fact that all even described the hero talking about this character is how is in his Dick, and has man hands, and all this shit like you can't undo what you've said. Especially, if he before, that was never into like, didn't you say he was never into the like the guy aspect. That was the guy who tried to. Steal her. Eventually he discovers he is in fact, he is in fact by like. They have like a couple of experiences with other men, and he discovers that no, in fact, he is it which is something. You would never have discovered if they hadn't had an open relationship so for me I was like well. That's nice. That's good to know about yourself. And so I thought the the open religious thing served a purpose, a great guy grew. He feels confident in his sexuality. She has him were. He's got more experienced to like. This woman who's had sex with a million people is more satisfied. Everyone wins. Yeah, no, it was like setup, so they can make this weird triangle where he incident, it turns into So is that the other guy actually like the other like deceased?.

"Took the week. Dick Dick Dick Dick Dick AGO building the week. Dick Dick Dick Dick Hello Dallas. Nur's guess what it's not just me. Stephanie's here take I did it. I'm back. We are remote recording for the first time ever with each other so this is going to be a learning experience for everybody. Yeah it's GonNa be Great. I feel really weird. Wasn't I've been talking about how awkward it is to talk via the and how it's so much different than seeking face to face. Yeah and that's not that's not why I I'm pregnant again. Which is why I haven't been on. Yeah I'm like Oh I think I'm fifteen week this week really. I'm talking along. Yeah I don't like I was like four weeks pregnant so it wasn't yeah like I've known forever. Yes yeah I have no sense of time anymore. Yeah so I'm fifteen weeks on Wednesday so God you're in your Second Trimester. So yeah so it's really. It's a good time as you guys know. I'm really good at being pregnant here. I'm not but I definitely had to take a little a little break because I was. I fall asleep. Random Times can remember Yes I'm on medication and can do stuff but it was definitely a surprising like oh all of a sudden. I feel lot worse so I know we're back in business and trying to even though it's like I said this is hard for me to not be face to face with people. It's like way more energy consuming than you know not doing this like if it feels like. I'm we were. We were supposed to India last night but I got cancelled so ended up just chatting with our friends and I swear I was so sweaty over like from talking via the cord was really embarrassing. The change my shirt of growth. Yeah well I am definitely excited for the day. We finally get to be face to face again. Yeah that'll ninety. Yeah I I mean Jordan In fact means we have an instagram subscription. Which we weren't using because you pay a tip and a tip of like I mean we tip well anyway but there's like built in tip and if you don't pay attention to and we wanted to tip a lot so like today for instance there's a fifty dollar tip on our groceries. You know 'cause like well. We did like a week and a half with a grocery shopping or they did rather so I mean but again at cost you money. So there's like a tradeoff Sabrina toddler mode. So it's like we really can't. We can't spare adult right now. Especially when I'm at like fifty percent so total so and we. We did that and so he left because honestly that's the only time we leave is He goes to the grocery store like every week every two weeks and then I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow but I haven't lost the house in six weeks like less at the going out in the yard. So wow so. Yes other than going to my in-laws every like week to two weeks for dinner Because I don't they're retired. They don't do anything either I went to my first grocery store since early. March on Saturday and it was. You Know Picking Memorial Day Weekend. Be Your first grocery trip yeah. It was very overwhelming. We went to seafood city. Which is a new city And it's like a Asian slash Mexican market and we because we are doing hot with Jeremy's parents and his brothers that night so we had to pick up some ingredients that we can't get at the store down the road from US and most of it was fine like the store was fine guitar a little bit of news too but we were in line to check out for like no joke at least forty five minutes while if not longer and I like at that point i. My mask was feelings claustrophobic and I was just like okay. I'm getting hot and I'm hungry and I just I really just not. I don't want to be here so I am. Certain will probably let Jeremy do the rest of the shopping the rest of working from home and all that. Because I'm just like Nope I hated this. Yeah absolutely I can't yeah I haven't gone. I haven't gone since I think I think the last time I went was at the very beginning of quarantine like very very very beginning. So it's been a hot minute since I have gone to restore 'cause I was like I went and then we there wasn't any kind of just like no one could say if like a pregnant women were at higher risk or not. Oh Yeah and so. It was like well. There's no point in risking it. We have an adult. That's healthy but it's really. I feel really bad. Like Jordan has like taking on everything. Yeah everything because I I just can't do things. So yeah it's it's been sake and like you know how bad I like not being able to do things. So that layer of me that's like in my brain is like beating myself up. I can't get the laundry put away because I'm like having You know I'm so sick. I'm falling asleep. Which is like clearly not my fault but because I am an insane person. I can't like I can't think that through so sure It's been. It's been really stressful. But that part's in stressful. But that's like the pregnancy. I was stressed out last pregnancy. It was the same like Lee last pregnancy. You were traveling to on top of it. Yeah so traveling for work at that point so I don't have any like health risk issues or anything is it's Jeremy's doing the shopping just because I have to be logged into work at eight. Am The morning and Jeremy has more flexibility with that and so it's just easier for him to go around eight o'clock in the morning. You know when the crowds are a little bit less. There's more items available and just get it done. Sharon get logged into work whenever he gets logged into work. 'cause he's a bit more flexibility with that so it's just worked out that way but before this. I did all the grocery shopping. So that's been a really odd. Yeah it's been really weird for me but I'm still doing most of the meal planning he helps And by I'll do most of the meal planning and like actually plan out a full-week plus worth of meals then right out the ingredients. We need to purchase which you know if I'm going to take away anything from all of this. I think I'm going to continue trying to that because it's kind of Nice not having to grocery shop three times a week. Yeah now. That's that's one discovery is like. Oh we've been shopping for early. I mean I guess we knew that but it was also just. We didn't do anything about it. You know so now. It's it's kind of Nice to have that that. Oh we need to be more mindful of.

"Duke. Dick Dick Dick Dick Building a week. Dick Dick Dick Dick Hello listeners. And welcome to this week's episode of Dick the week It is I liz and I am doing another many episode So the podcast within the podcast digging around with Liz. I'm doing things a little bit differently this time. I asked the general audience if they had any questions posted on facebook and twitter asking people if there was any questions at the head specifically for me about me or romance or my opinions on anything romance genre related so first off What have I been reading At least stern to read a little bit more. So that's great. Currently in the middle of a book called Porn Star by Lauren page in Sierra Simon or Simone on Simone Sierra Simone. I wouldn't normally have picked up this book but my friend Erin Hi. Aaron said that she had started it and was enjoying it And it's actually quite interesting about two people within the porn industry falling in love and I also just finished reading a liar. Liar hearts on fire by PIPPA grants and I enjoyed that one. I quite enjoy most pippas book. She's funny She writes a Lot. Rom coms This was book. Three of the Bro Code but The Bro Code series Which is about a bunch of Ex `boy bandres so that's fun anyway. That is that for now. Let me just jump right in to the questions The first question is from my friends. Stephen he wanted me to look through twitter and look at Tweets regarding the musical love never dies since last weekend. Andrew Lloyd Webber had it available for people to watch for free on Youtube for a couple of days for those of you who don't know love never dies the sequel to his popular musical Phantom of the opera and I have made it clear that I'm obsessed with pretty much all things. Phantom of the opera related both musical and book related Have not seen love never die. Slow I meant to watch it this past weekend and time. Just got away from me If I care that much I will rent it or buy it on. Amazon is at some point. It'll be fine but it's apparently not a good musical. It's ridiculous so Stephen wanted me to specifically look at tweets of people talking about how love never dies is pretty much Andrew Lloyd Webber Doing Fan Fiction which. I would have to agree for several reasons. First off it's an adaptation of the original novel from the Nineteen. Hundreds Phantom of the opera and really adaptation is just a fancy word for fan fiction. Andrew Lloyd Webber Pretty much already wrote fan fiction with his original musical. Now take it a step further and love. Never dies is based off someone else's book the Phantom of Manhattan by Frederick Forsyth. And he more or less wrote fan fiction because it is the sequel to the novel but in the novel. Phantom Slash Eric. Dies. He's dead at the end so there can't be a sequel. Where he's the main character. So Frederick uses the ending to Andrew. Lloyd Webber's where the Phantom escapes and gets away because In his version he escapes and goes to New York City. So yes I do think that it is fan fiction Not a romance though. I know that wasn't the question but it is a love story or a book or Musical. That has a love story but it is not a romance because there is not a happy ending for anybody really. So that's that okay. So our next question is from elephants. Who is a saint? Louis local comedian and Improv. She writes if you could reconstruct the romance writing world. In a way that in your expert opinion would make it better. What would you do well first off? That is very sweet of you for you to Say expert opinion. I am not an expert in any of this but you know I feel like this is a question that really could be like a full episode worth of discussing And I think it would be an interesting conversation to have with Stephanie. Or other people But to keep things short and easy since. I'm by myself I think there needs to be a shift in representation definitely I mean that's been something we've talked about a whole bunch on this show before that there's many people that are under represented in the ruins world. I mean across the board in all genres and all films. Tv All that but it was becoming very obvious the last few years in romance that a not only are there not many books about people of color or people of different ethnicities or people with disabilities or people with different illnesses There weren't many people who could qualify as those things also writing the own voices. Books became a much bigger deal especially in like why and other genres and it's definitely increasing in romance which is wonderful Because that stuff matters like not only straight white people fall in love and that needs to be represented better in the romance world. I think that it is definitely getting better. Minorly there's a lot of work that needs to be done to make that better And it's interesting because my focus typically is in within the indie world but I do read a good amount of traditional published romance as well and I think the whole illustrated cover trend has become a bigger deal because there are more people of Color Different ethnicities that are the main characters in books and there is a problem with some white people. Don't want to read books. That have a black model. Or you know an Indian model or whatever ethnicity. They might be whether it's male or female so the illustrated books are kind of like a a way to make it more appealing which is disgusting to think about but the reason. I personally like it. is because it's really difficult unless you have the ability to hire models and higher photographer to find stock photos online. That are what you need for your cover. So hiring an illustrator to make a cover. That looks really pretty. And is what you're wanting is an easier thing to do than finding models Whether it's interracial couples or you know to Chinese people or whatever it is. You're needing that look the way you want them to look and work on the cover. It's a lot more difficult to find than just your generic white people so I think just diversity and general and accessibility to people who are both readers and writers would be my ideal thing right now of what should be fixed within the romance world renowned seat. This next question comes from James Anderson High James. You can find him on twitter at unabashed James. He's a wonderful podcast. He a bunch of different shows a bunch of different projects. He's working on all the time and he's a good friend of mine so I was happy that he's at me a question. James Asks How do I think corn team slash coverted nineteen will affect the genre both in numbers books written or sold and how it will affect plots such as we found ourselves corn together or he broke quarantine for me? Well that's really interest. There are already a lot of books that are using the quarantine pandemic plotline. Because I mean it's like Oh. Our car broke down and our stuck together or at wintertime. It's always oh snowed in with my boss at the cabin like that forced proximity thing is already pretty common So it doesn't surprise me that the leap was already made to be including quarantine cove in nineteen stuff. I think it's a little weird to profit off what's happening right now like it's not exactly my cup of tea like if this is the new normal. We quarantined every year For a chunk of time that okay but like I personally don't think I'm going to be writing any UPC's. I was quarantined with my coworker. Who's also my sworn enemy? And now we're GONNA fall in love which you know. That is already a book actually. It is a book because I made a list of ones I could find. I went to Amazon. And I'm going to read you a couple of these Because it a shocking. How fast these were written and published which I don't know my guess is the majority of them aren't great because of that But some people can write really fast in have good editors. Okay quarantined with my professor by Carol. Adams you know I I should really write these things better. That came out on March twenty first and it's a book one of a series so I assumed she plans or if she has partners to that they'll publish within the same series so she has a more books coming out kings of quarantine a dark high school bully romance brutal boys of Ever Lake. Prep School Book One. That is a mouthful y'all by Caroline Peckham and Suzanne Valentine This is apparently also reverse Harem which is incredibly popular especially with an Indie Books especially within Kindle Limited and so wrote that it's a. m. m. f. m. m. so male male female male male this was published April nineteenth. So they at least you know had a month to write that book. This one actually sounded a little interesting to me. It's called Sissies in quarantine a transgender romance novel by Nikki Crescent and this was published March twenty fifth. So that's even. Oh No that's not that's not Before the other one but that was still pretty fast. This isn't actually specifically about cove in nineteen but it's obviously inspired by it. It's a different virus that happens and these two brothers get trapped in like a sex store and I'm that's all I really know about it because I didn't read much more Then there is a series that is unexpectedly sequestered together short read series so these are like books that are academe and say books or short stories but they're published individually and they're like less than fifty pages and this one gives you the option of an office setting trapped in the arena. Some Gessen sports and in island that first book came out March Thirteenth. And again yes. It's it's not a book because it's only like thirty or forty fifty pages. But I wasn't even working from home yet. I started working from home like later that week. So this occurred a real fast. And then there's love in the time of coveted which is a part one and part two and it's two different collections of Romance Romance Short Stories. That first one was published. March twenty eighth that means like four or five. Different writers real quickly wrote short stories that then someone put together and published into an anthology. I my brain is just what like you know I. Maybe some people are just becoming an extra creative because of this free time. But where's my brain is just like dead zone but it shocked me So yes James. That is already happening. And I'm guessing. We'll just continue to happen. Though I will say I will be shocked if I see. Any of these. Corentin related books happening within the traditionally published world because the timeframe of how long it takes for those books to be accepted by the publisher edited. Worked like it is a much longer process like the way that indie public authors. Try to crank out books. Every few months typically traditionally published books are like one maybe two a year so I feel like by the time they would actually be ready to be published. People be kind of sick of hearing anything quarantine related but I don't know we shall have to wait and see in terms of the market of the number of books written and the number of books being purchased again. I think it really depends. If you're looking at indy or traditionally published India. I'm guessing is doing crazy. Well right now indie. Publishers are indie authors. I mean are working hard or trying their bass notes again. It's very difficult. Some people are now teaching me their students or their kids from home like they didn't sign up to be a teacher but now they are or other various things that could be causing issues that maybe they're not writing as quickly but I would guess that a lot of writers are trying to get Their books out as quickly as possible in indy publishing. So people who don't have anything else to do can spend their money buying books the flip side of that you know. Some people are having to be more restrictive with their spending. So Mike S. Again is India will see up and traditional will probably be about the same or less only because you can buy any books for like ninety nine cents to three dollars typically or if you have kindle unlimited Yordi have all these books available whereas traditionally published books even.
"dick" Discussed on Dick of the Week
"Language we're rated M for mature listener. Discretion is advised. Took the week Dick Dick Dick. Dick digger girls building during the week. Dick Dick Dick Dick. Hello and welcome to this week's mini episode of Dick of the week pop POW. That means it is Dick around with Liz. I think this is episode. Three of that miniseries within the PODCAST. Within the podcast as you were anyway so I was just thinking I missed. Y'All and figured I might as well do a little mini episode. So we have something to put out to you I don't know how you all are doing with Corentin Corona virus covert nineteen all this social distancing all that loveliness that's going on right now I've been working from home for about. Oh goodness almost a month now he ever coming up on a month About three and a half weeks I guess is probably the correct answer. And it's weird You know I knew obviously knew this was coming and thankfully I do work for a company that from the get-go was very upfront with wanting to put our safety first and make sure that we had the ability to work from home as much as possible. An eminent position that your job is weird right now working from home and there's Times it's stressing me the fuck out and I'm uncomfortable and anxious and all those lovely lovely emotions but I'm in a much better position than a lot of other people and so I'm very grateful for that so I always feel super when I complain about my current situation because I know it is other people's like during situation but for me personally this whole quarantine experience which is pretty much. It's going to be the focus of this episodes of if you're just like fucking sick of Corentin I get it But I just figured I'd share my personal experiences and how that's affecting me creativity Anyway yeah I mean I the area that typically is my writing area and my podcast in space is now also my day job some in the same space all the time so from eight o'clock to four thirty. I'm doing my job and a night. Logoff at four thirty and I just feel brain dead like I feel like before if I knew like okay. Today's podcast scene dates as a writing day two days or whatever day I like still had that accepts that energy and that ability to continue on and I haven't been able to figure that out yet. I'm drinking gin and tonic right now. But instead of tonic. I'm using Lime Lacroix and it's delicious but anyway I have not yet figured out how to use my free time for anything other than cleaning cooking watching TV. I'm honestly struggling with reading. And I've talked to a couple of their friends and they're having the same issue so I just wanted to be upfront and honest with you all because if your struggling with things I want you to know that you are not alone. You're not alone in the fact that you see all these fucking memes online whether it's facebook twitter instagram. Whatever that people are like if you don't come out of this free time with having learned a new skill having finished projects you wanted to do having learned how to fucking break bake bread or become a master chef or finished writing that fucking book or whatever it is it might be the near just a lazy piece of Shit and I just want you to know that is bullshit that stupid because this is a really stressful period of time for some people and if you are feeling great and you're loving this working from home situation and you're being healthy and all. This isn't affection you and you're able to channel this energy that would otherwise be using for other things into those things that you've been wanting to do. That's absolutely wonderful. And I'm very happy for you but if you're someone like me where you thought this would be a great time for you to be working on writing or editing or being productive in whatever way and you're finding that you just fucking can't that is really okay like I promise you it is okay. It's just hard. It's hard and there's no way to gas before a few weeks ago how we'd be reacting so I have read a couple books but not nearly as many as you think I would have because typically I was reading anywhere from like two one two three books week at least kind of situation between audiobooks and reading and actually my ability to read for some reason I just like I can't sit there and read even though it's romances literally the perfect escape four everything that's going on around us so if you are able to read. I really do recommend finds some really awesome bookstore. He'd do it. my friend. Cme has been talking to me and telling me that romance novels have been a huge help for her personally and she thanked me for that because she's been reading the books that I have recommended to her or books that she thought that I would enjoy and cyber giving her more so like if romance really is the perfect thing to read right now but for whatever reason I personally just struggling across the board with reading and writing. I don't know why all I can do. Apparently is watched one tree hill and the food network so here we are in place star do valley but I did manage to finish reading undercover bromance. By at least A K. Adams and I started that right before Am allowed the major social distancing. All that happened but I do have to say I think the fact that her book came out Within the first week of March and then everything was going on with covert I. I feel like that does her a disservice personally Because her book is absolutely wonderful a loved the first book in that series. Bromance club and I did enjoy this book as well. I do feel though that because my brain was already just in weird place that because this book deals with a bit more serious topics regarding like Sexual harassment and stuff like that they. I just don't think I was in the right brain space for it so I enjoyed it and I would still highly recommend it but I am definitely gonNA come back to that book in a few months and reread it. I'm currently in the process of Reading Liar. Liar Heart's on fire by PIPPO grant and she's another author who I absolutely love and have read the majority of her books. I would recommend her definitely but again. This is a book I started like a week or so ago and typically would have had it finished within two or three days and I think I'm like forty percent into it maybe and it's nothing to speak of the quality of the book. It's a good book. Just can't fuck and do it right now and I don't know why I've also been listening 'cause sometimes while I'm working. I like to listen to a book. I've been listening to a book called openly straight by Bill Congress Burke and that's an interesting book because it's about a boy who has been openly out Enga- since eighth grade and now he's a sophomore or junior and he went to he transferred to an all boys boarding school and he chose to not openly speak about his sexuality because he was sick of being the gay kid. So it's been really interesting and I'm enjoying listening to it but yet again it's taken me much longer than normal to listen to it and a lot of that has to do with typically when I was working at my actual office I was constantly listening to romance novels whereas now more often than not. I have my laptop open to Hulu and I'm watching something like on the food network or whatever or one tree hill yet again. as I'm working instead of listening to an audiobook and part of that I think is because my cell phone is being used as my work phone as well. 'cause my work calls are being transferred to that and so. I don't know I have this really weird everything's weird. I hit everything it's fine. It's fine writing wise. I am happy to say that like within the last few days. I've been getting urged to start thinking and focusing on things again which is good. Because I haven't had that in a while like even leading up to working from home. I just still wasn't feeling creative. Wasn't feeling in the mood to work on things. One of my friends who read my first draft of my book reached out to me middle of last week and she was like. Hey let's plan a zoom or whatever meeting Google hangouts hangouts. Whatever your choice of video chat meeting to you know. Sit Down and talk about the book which I think will be absolutely great for me because I need that I like. I have people's notes but to be that so fucking intimidating to sit there especially right now. I'm just not in the mood for it but if I'm talking to someone quote unquote face to face about what she thinks is working what I can do to fix that how to move forward. I think that'd be really really great to push me. And Get me going. Creatively again Podcast wise well. I'm doing this today. That's lovely Earlier on Sunday Daniel and I did I long distance podcasting for our new yet announced show. That should be coming up in the next few weeks ourselves. I'll keep you posted on that but our new show that we've been working on. We did our first long distance recording which was very awkward and we did not like it. But we did it. We have to do and it's fine Thursday this week I have Online MEETING WITH PEOPLE REGARDING SPACE AMERICA. Like it's just you know finally getting those gears moving again trying to feel a bit more normal because normalcy doesn't exist right now and his all weird so just gotTa do what you gotTa do and not beat yourself up for the things that you're not doing like that's really where I'm at right now like I miss going to the gym. I have things to do workout wise in our house and I've been so so with it. I could definitely up my exercise. I could definitely spend more time doing things. But as just hasn't been my priority and I think I'm finally pushing through that fog and get into a place where okay I can start focusing on things other than covert related things and everything. That's being shoved down our throats regarding the news and everything happening not only in Saint Louis Missouri and the states but across the world. It's a lot I don't know about you but I've been having nonstop. Vivid dreams a lot of stress dreams. A lot of anxiety dreams a lot of justice league by sleep as even Russell and then you work and you're at home and then you're off..

"dick" Discussed on Dick of the Week
"For mature listener discretion is advised week. Dick Dick Dick Dick Building the week. Dick Dick Dick Dick all right. Well Hello and welcome to this episode addict. The week I am on of Your House Liz. I'm your host Stephanie. And we have no guests this week and it's just the two of us and we're doing something a little bit different. Yeah so then. We've we've talked about movies before but this time we're talking documentary. That's about romance novel. We're really excited. This is Archie nerd sell. This will only make sense a couple of you out there but we are very typical Truman students. We like to research things to death. Yeah on my part. I procrastinate on things me too me too. I definitely we watched it today. I'd watched it a few months ago but every watched it today when I had a whole weekend but and you told me about it when I watched it and I hadn't seen it so I watched it last week For the first time but was too engrossed that I couldn't take any notes so I re watched it on Sunday to take notes. That's a Sweden walks. Take for this. It's so funny 'cause like we never take notes own stuff. No but we take notes and other people. Oh Yeah discussed is. That's putting a show that we WANNA do but we definitely although now if you put off for even longer 'cause we wanted to check tingle episode. Saint Louis yes. He's coming to Saint Louis in early March. I think it'd be an the ready room and it's like twenty dollars for tickets. I think we really fun of we went so I think that's I think we're on foot off the show until after we can do that. Global News something. Final half and. I don't know what's going to happen. Jeremy was like you should try to reach out to him. I'm like well. He no one knows who he is like he literally does this podcast with a mask on demand. If he showed up at your house the massacre I would be like. We can record something on our phones or something. Yeah Zoom Yeah there you go. Striker has it still but we own zoom in this household striker just stolen a year ago but that's that's the kind of nerds we are like. I'm like well. We'll tell the experiences possible before we do this. Show so I agree but yet this Well before we dive in yeah. Have you read anything okay? So I've been kind of on a Wrapping stuff up phase Because a lot of the books that I was reading stopped updating so I don't know what was going on there so I was like wrapping up other books on my kindle real quick Also I apologize. Make kitten meowing like crazy. He's very. He has free reign of the House. Now and the fact that I have him in one room is making him really unhappy so I had started reading a series the just series just one night. Just a fling. Amman unjust neighbors and on Justin X. are just access in just friends by a charity. Feral so it's basically like the small town and it's just in the classic way all the books that we read our series that revolve around front groups are siblings. So it's Kinda like that. And the first one is on kindle limited. Yes no I bought these. You bought these young enough that you cut buying them. Yeah that's great the slummy homely vote the first one because the first I wanna say when we had kind of had a Closing rundle let me say about this book. So the first one Oh so the first one is just a fling in. It's about a guy who just came back from overseas in. His fiancee has left him for his best friend. They got married unload. They were supposed to get married. What yeah so. He's okay. I saw in honestly they look the other Russia. Stir it and I kinda love that because it's like I don't want to. That's the important part necessarily of the book but like does he ever sentimental bullshit letter but it was his best friend also So like are either these people in his life at all anymore. He shows up in the first chapter. They show up to his welcome home party because they want to smooth things over because all gonna live in the same small town. Oh my such pain. Because he's like he's still I think those authors are really good knack of like showing real feelings because he definitely still loves her and hates her and like his friend. He's he knew before he got to the going away party that they they've been married. Yeah so yeah so Yes we get. Tom and his brother is a bodyguard for a popular actress of course and I was saying he doesn't live in the small town he just came back to this. He does love so the brother does live in this small town so his brother met his wife away while he was being a bodyguard Where they met before that and they're from the same. They might be from the same hometown. I don't I don't exactly remember that part of it. 'cause character that doesn't come into play until the next book the guys next book But the the widow story. Oh No the first book. So he goes. He goes searching bodyguard and he has a terrible impression of this woman has like his brothers missed holidays and stuff and his brothers. They're switching places with his brother has His wife is dying of cancer. And like she's dying like there's not like a chance that she's going to survive but he becomes her bodyguard yet and so that the body. The first brother stays home with his family to have like the most time with her and yeah And so he goes off and they don't like each other obviously because he thinks she's a spoiled. He believes things that he believes. The things that has access said about the like the lake shore no the posse and stuff like that and he gets an hour and she's actually get really down to earth person and then read the fuck out of this book. Yeah and like the the brother whose home is like no. You'll like her and he's like why don't you tell me things? I wanted you to like form an opinion on your own and then so this guy hard and fast rule that cheating and you later find out that this girl in a past relationship a bad bad bad toxic toxic relationship had had in fact but she was also being cheated on so like level and she knew it. Yeah socially student probably more like she doesn't ever try to like make justify it which is also really cool so all right so that. That's that book. In the second book the wife Dies and he has a one night. Stand with one of the best friend. An Assistant to the movie star the actress. She's a TV star. She was in a popular like buffy show. Okay and so. She's trying to break into big movies and so she didn't a fake relationship. It's fake relationship. Bodyguard is a lot. It's so and the guy is a total douche and like it's awful but yes. The second book is the brother who went home after his wife has died Like months later he has a one night stand with the girl and then the next morning he like flips out and it's like I was mistaking. You cannot get away from him. Fast enough and then dont`a ones do they do it in a good way cause most the time that's literally what makes me. WanNa stop reading book Yeah because she doesn't want to tell him she used ones go back to L. A. And pretend like it didn't happen and that she just going to say that she got knocked up from someone else but his brother over. Here's and demands that they tell him and then from there at least knowing this going into it. I won't be as angry. Well so the pregnancy thing is. She hasn't had sex in a while and he hasn't really hammered at the birthday of the girl or whatever and it was the first time that he had fun since his wife died. All so. That's probably why I think it doesn't. It's not as chief is a lot of pregnant because it's like the widow story and the whole time he's basically like I don't want to be with you and like It's he and his wife. Have kids have one daughter and so he's like he was done he was planning on? Never dating again or anything and so the whole book is basically Herbie and like. I'm not going to be second best. I'm not going to be with you. Because we're having a kid together down and him himself. Yeah and then he fails a bunch. And it's it's so well written like okay. That sounds really nice. You'll like it a lot. Because like the some of the stuff that he does to hurt her is not his fault. But you're still very mad at him and you're very met the situation because she's made to feel kind of like a second class citizen in her own like relationship and even like in that whole yeah. It's really bad. And then she has her own problems like she wants to run away all the time so really dramatic the books really fucking your attic. But there's like funny but the characters are funny. The story itself is not funny. What are these called again? It's the just series by a charity Farrell. Of course my phone locks and I can't get into it. A charity for all Minneapolis Indiana. It's and the the neighbors want so yes just XS was good as well. That one is a girl girls. X. Comes back to town. And he's The kneecap in the first chapter. He arrests her. And then they have terrible. Like rekindling not rekindling. It's bad and that's painful and then just neighbors This boy completely embarrassed her in high school and he bought the house next door to her. Not Knowing Yeah then he makes it his life's mission to like being her business so fuck and then like the they've got family interloop interweaving family drama like all of the stories at face value. Seem like they're going to be this one thing but there's always a secondary plotter thing that makes it so like. Oh baby from. Nightstand added a widow. Who doesn't never wanted to move on from his wife doesn't know how to love with brain. It's I cried like the entire time. And the same thing with like the The Justice Fling. I didn't have as many fields short little more straightforward but like just excess. Oh My fucking God that hurt and then The just neighbors is pretty intense. But Yeah I just got just XS. Just friends has been put on my In my thing and then I have a donut. Let me go to read this month as well. Elsa also the secret crush by Meghan. Quinn is the third in that series of the night brother. Yeah Yeah I'd pre-ordered it and it got delivered like last night I was like yes. I got notification that it was available now. Because that's going to be that good one because that's that coffee shop in the goofy. I'm here for that one in waiting. Because yes she's been Focusing I feel like more on her that baseball series and I'm not into it at all and read one the locker room and I don't remember the other ones are called journalist. I read the first one. I like her writing. I liked this series better. There's something about it that's charming. Megan Quinn is on those people either. Absolutely love her. Or She's a mess for me because I think She she writes humorous writing and I think she's one of those that like get to in her head about comedy in a way that means LEX slapsticky or like to like. This is funny so funny right kind of thing. And when she hits she hits it hard and I love it And so is always one of those people that I will try her book. But I've had some big old MRS and some really big hits. I like very seldom like. Yeah this series for me. This whole series has been hit for me so far because the first one was the first one the one the the the the the brothers was a widow cursed brother I took the first one is the widow because the first book is silly because the whole cursing but I still really enjoyed it. 'cause it was deep. I mean. He's still lost his wife and he's like trying to like that's why I think why that Just one night book hit so hard that it kind of reminded me of that limit. I do like this area. I'm excited that yeah I did actually already read. Don't let me go by Teagan Hunter. Which is book three of her slice series? Which we've talked about before.

"So spoiler Great we love her. Like I said we love our characters except for one and you'll know him immediately do so. I'm. I'm just really really really optimistic. But I'm also freaked out because I'm like okay. Did you set like big goals for yourself? Like I saw someone in that in that one. You're thin like post like almost not of vision. Board Division list is what I would call it like Jones like big goals and like fucking lover. I love that I love that idea. 'cause I hate vision boards but I love that I love a list. Yeah my big thing is obviously really moving forward with season two of Levin loss in Space America. That's a huge huge focus for me because two thousand nineteen was wonderful in terms of planning both of those but then things kind of fell flat shit just kind of went down with everybody like having a baby really at the beginning. The early slowed down for me yet. That happened with Daniel Ian had personal shit. Go Down I had personal shit. Go down like it's just like everything. Just kind of fizzled in a way. That like US anymore right. Yeah and we did talk to her and see if she wants to be like a editor kind of person to help us again if she wants to be on it. A little yeah. I'm sure she will. We will like figuring out going from three person writing team to a two and a different one with space MERICA. Daniel and I are trying to figure out if we're going from a four person writing team to potentially two person writing team depending on what Ian is able to do over. I remember especially in Brittany or finishing up. Jane the ripper writing stuff still. So she's signed a point in the neons moving to Scotland. So it's just we really definitely want to get space America moving so he still around to record his part and we had created a character that we wanted John. Vinegar need to be a and John's no New York. Yeah it's like oh well. We literally created this character. 'cause we thought he'd be perfect for it now. It's like okay. I already have a couple other names in my brain that I think would be wonderful and especially different different comedians. Who have told me before. Like I think Andrew I always say his name wrong. Miguel avenge girl and I'm going to try a mouthful of last night. Sweet Angel Baby. Love Him so much. I love him so much. I think he'd be great for that role similar energy. So yes so it's like Oh like. I have some other potential people. I can ask since John's not around but yeah anyway it's just you know there's a lot anything also. We're the kind of people that when things start piling up we definitely paused. Yes versus Divan. And so for me. Twenty twenty s about diving in versus like letting shit like pause me one hundred percent and I think that's a lot of like twenty eighteen. It was very exciting. I finished my first draft of my book and then doing revision freaked me the fuck out. It's like I agree because I'm the same way. I got to finished manuscript to finish rough drafts that I cannot. I kind of edited Sasha. 'cause I was trying to do the pit wars. Yeah so that's like that's like seventy percent edited for despite their Gramley like changing a couple of the characters because they changed what Derek looked like he now is his face claim now for me as Lovie from Love Islands. Uk because he's a beautiful man and for Emiliano vs Emilian. Derek Story Lovie in the book but like I freaked out because it's like where do you even start right? And that's and that's like real talk like so I understand a hundred per cent where you're coming from and that was my thing like this past year is like I theoretically have so much downtime but it none of it's consecutive or good right and so I needed to forgive myself for this past year for that and then like this coming up here with Sabrina. Getting older and bigger now we can do stuff and her life can be more structured between the my life more structured and she's becoming more independent. Yes which helps airy Nice. She plays by herself on the floor for half an hour at time. Well it's like one of the big things you and I talked about for Jane for Twenty Twenty was originally going to California for the RWE conference. Listen to what we were talking about today. Which narrow like never not fucking using her money. I think we should. I don't work but maybe we should have our own conference me and Liz going somewhere and writing. Oh look a writing retreat yet. Oh Yeah we totally do that. We'll just been at the same time we were. GonNa do a bunch of money like okay like a fucking cute airbnb somewhere and just fucking right without our husbands and everyone around us. Yeah no I'm totally done for that. We should totally do that. Yeah I think that's what your student said anyone not anyone but if you have not anyone you're not allowed. I'm GONNA say not. Anyone gives a stranger listening to the homeless. Saint Louis Twenty twenty and you want to come hang out with us for a long weekends. You're welcome to join us. Yeah well Sonata form. Well how fun would it be if we did something like I dunno like Herman or something it was like? Oh we say I would love a hermit. Shrip- Lake Cheap X. amount of time going to the winery and the rest of the time like in our cabin or whatever right. I'm here for it anyways. Great and then we can really cause the working on a project together. That'd be season three. We'd probably be able to just crush it crush season. Screws are easy for me because mostly dialogue. Yeah and that's my strong suit. Yeah the only thing in writing and I think I think that's one of the things that you're so good at the dialogue and then I'm like okay. Well I need to add in these. Like other cues to make it up y'all tax. I'm not that person and I do all that work on the other side. I need to know okay. This is what the movement sounds like. This is what this is during bubble blah. Dame's it's me saying the dialogue at Liz and her watching me and like what weird thing I'm doing and he's like okay so let me put a rustle of asleep because you gestured wildly got a lot of our a lot of together is like here are my words. And here's me saying to. You was going killing you this. This is exactly thank you. Is there a dog in the background? Maybe I don't know. How do I have pets this year? I don't think this year because I don't think they do travel alive praise. He said he's going to be all the crappy songs.

"Hello Hello and welcome to the new of Durga. The we willing twenty. You made it. It's been so long we've missed you and we're sorry but also like we needed that break. We need a break there. I had health issues for three weeks straight so and your entire family and then he started with the baby which sets never something you want. This is my favorite story of the illnesses. Because you had the stomach flu in a cold wrapping up right now. Oh and then we thought she'd ringworm but it's just eggs massage your scalp. She had like this raised like flaky and she is create. Okay yeah like the thing about cradle cap for a long time. Yeah they don't. It's like his baby near drifts And so when she got hair we couldn't really see it and I haven't been checking for sure. It's still really there so we're going to sell some blue and I'm gonNA use your sweet little baby. She's crazy tea tree oil. I think it's also supposed to be good the next thing but you have to like cut that with water for a beep. Don't trust myself so we're sort of blue like the doctor said today but so good. Good good here. Only the patch is yeah. He went to the doctor so because I was like fuck. If it's ringworm we're trying to have birthday party so it's it's eggs for shirks all raised in. It's got its cradle cap with egg minor knees o on her neck and stuff. She's got like a little under like upper back so a quick question like having extra that young at birth like is that something she's going to deal with like different kinds of extra okay Yes you could not have asthma. Asthma join doesn't I have well I guess I have like some kind of like exit every once in a while shore so I think I think my skin I also might. I went to him. He said I ever is Asia. Wouldn't it doesn't really can't really see it. I and I think different hills fuck so. I don't know if it's really I don't but I will have skin and things that she could possibly get beginning But yes a little patch on her head is excess. Get some of that one percent hydrocortisone cream. Put It on there for a week. And hopefully it'll go away if it doesn't. I'll go back in October. She's like it's not ringworm she has she was good. I it's a circle and she goes in like good coming in 'cause you know a lot of people wouldn't yeah it was detached from the rest of the cradle cap. So that's why we can cause her hair so dense on top of enough animals. That like if something weird happened outside with one of the dog. I wasn't really super pressed about it. Honestly like when you've got four pets and a baby getting up for anything but yeah so those are so. She had the stomach flu. I was gone during the first vomiting session so she had spit up and she's like eleven months old so she doesn't spit ever leaning work. Yeah everyone's like. She spent this morning when we were going outside. But I think those jostling her room but she spit up. That's weird so I went to the story about all the groceries we needed for Christmas. I came back towards. Oh she threw up everywhere or she should have back. I can't remember. I think you should ever back that. That point and so he had to give her a bath and then later that night she threw up on him lay so she's holding her in Hor Jordan. Liquid pedialyte own breakfast and she tried to pick it up and eat it and I just being raised by your pump and I. I'm like watching this happen. And wrenching and laughing at the same time because what I discovered. My mom swore like Oh. It's your baby their vomit. They're not bother you bullshit. I can't hang. I can't I don't know if it's because again like a day and a half later. I was late waylaid. With the same set of clue I was throwing up and everything But Jordan handled like a champion even with his flu because we'll enjoy which is hilarious because Jordan Hicklin litterbox. Exactly what he she corrects me. Just because you're very similar in that like Jeremy. Will I clean the litter box a lot? Jeremy does too but I clean it a lot and for the longest time I was the only one who knew how to handle our Litter genie which is like a diaper genie but for cat poop and so I had to. You know then deal with like six pounds of cat poop at once kind of thing in the smell was so overwhelming and like dealing with it. But he didn't know how to do it right and it was easier for me just quickly do it instead of taking the time to show him. Yep Yep because otherwise. I had to deal with the smell longer. Yeah and so he finally. There's one time I wasn't around and he's like I had to google it but I think I figured it out like great great honestly. I'm fine with doing it. But like none of that was so funny like watch him get vomited outlook when he stood up like the liquids for splatter noise like made me. I'm like I'm like seriously wrenching. I'm like sitting by like with a tree. We change her and wrenching is here. I need you to hold take my shirt off unlike holding out away from my body because I don't have any involvement on me and I'm like I can't. I'm almost vomiting. You know what's going to happen that's going to be me. There's going to be a day. She's going to get sick. She's GONNA vomit. I'm GONNA vomit and he's GonNa find us naked in the bathroom. That's what's going to happen so I had a very eventful holidays. What I'm saying so somehow I mean knock on all the word I. I've been vomiting sick a few times in the last eight years of my in Jeremy's existence together like I outguessed Mike Bug. He has never in the time. We've been together the only time he has puked because he's like really really hung over and that. I can't even handle but also pisses me off because I'm like well. Why didn't you just like take care of yourself last night? Like why did you get to the point that out? You're throwing up. You know you had to do this thing today. Which doesn't help and also I'm in bed trying to sleep and you're using him in our tiny little bathroom. It's hard and I when you go to the bathroom later. It doesn't matter how clean you tried to make it. I'm always smell the smell. I'm convinced I'm going to find it was. It makes no sense but I'd be like I want to watch drunk history So badly and I was telling a friend the other day. And he's like there's not that many episodes where people actually saw. Yeah but it's always the episode. I watch where someone throws up and that shit makes me so sick to my stomach and cherries like you know what there's there there are lists online like we just need to look it up and figure out which episodes you can watch. Yeah it's more often than not yes you can watch it. But like he's like there are literally Lewis out there. We just need to look at it. 'cause there's one that just came out. That's Tom Hanks. Son Plain Fred Rogers. Because Tom Hanks just played right. Yeah Fredricka and I really really WANNA watch it. But I'm like Jeremy. You need to screen it. I can watch you know before his pregnant. I could watch any manner GORE VOMIT. Any discussing thing on TV. No problem and now you can when I was pregnant that I couldn't and I'm still sensitive. I still haven't you were so sick during your pregnant yet that it doesn't as high as many but like that. No it doesn't surprise me that the easiest things just made you even easier. Yeah and like so but now I felt like once. I wasn't pregnant now so I did the the Thanksgiving Turkey this year again last year. I couldn't get through without I. Dry heaved the entire time. I prepared the Turkey because I take out everything in being pregnant ice. The entire time makes sense as this year did a fucking problem. Didn't didn't bother me a any but still though when we're watching something in the the it was like something really gory. I looked at and I like I like started like dry heaving Jordan's like what's happened. Funny thing is like he can't handle like watching that kind of stuff he can't hit the other weird part is the one I drunk. I handle any smell like when I was in college. I was like the designated if you vomit. I'M GONNA probably be the one helping you out and I can. I can handle it when I'm drunk. I actually haven't been drunk at around vomit. It's post babies. I don't know if that's still true. Short-story baby it was very true. See and I feel like I'm the opposite like when I'm drunk. Everything is just ten times worse. Oh my sense of smell is gone. Oh you know what depends on drunk on because certain alcohols make me lose my sense a sense because I get so congested. I think I'm like borderline allergic to certain certain things I remember in college time I got we year digitable uric based Beer. Yes and again. I had swine flu because I got so congested from the beer did whole network. I'm getting sick and then the next time I feel terrible. 'cause hungover plus congested. Yeah I definitely allergic to. I can't trauma I had to break up with beer. Yeah I can't. I don't drink beer anymore really I don't either. It's all wine and hard liquor wine hard liquor insider. Yeah Oh yeah I do. I do so like we hear me about me. Cited from his comedy trip this past weekend. Where did you he went to Tulsa and somewhere in Arkansas and Springfield? So you got to hang out with Dan and Bonnie Yeah. That's a fun. I'm glad I'm glad he's doing that until it so he's back though. Yeah yeah he's just at No no actually. He decided he wanted to go out to like civil life or somewhere industry some writing. Good get you're right on. Yeah Man. That sounds good. I haven't written in so many days. I was crushing it. You were crushing it. And then and then. I had like insomnia for three days. Couldn't my brain and I wrote it in a cage fan fiction in that time but I also also like still sleep. And that's where your friends podcast yet. I recorded that last night. So I'll I'll I'll tweet. We'd get it done and then we can post face. Yeah so mine is very different from the other person's really mine is like a Romance Harlequin Romance type story like it's very cheesy very very very unlike what I usually right. So do you then read it yes? I'm GonNa read her so you never do that. And so exciting and so I stopped at a kiss because underneath the two thousand words. I didn't know how long it should be. I should have asked for the parameter to our but like my sex scenes are usually three thousand to four thousand. So it's like what are your thorough. Who's he fucking kissing seemingly some might take on? The fantastic is okay. What's the premise? Is Just Nick Cage Right? So so they're fantastic any any famous person. A famous obviously picked A. K. I think that was the funniest so then I also discovered when I was reading aloud. It's really hard to read a lot of Romantics cage But I wrote it so my take on the fan fake Liz. I wanted to read. I didn't want to give any details about the cause I wrote in First Person Because I wanted to be immersed is the I the person nick is with. Yes okay so I made her. I didn't describe her at all. I only gave her name show. I didn't tell you how she looked or anything. So you could just superimpose yourself in her shoes and then I just went for it and it was really weird and then actually when I was reading a lot. I was very pleased pros. But they all after this one of the most like well-structured Fans we've had on here and I was like well that's good because this is kind of embarrassing finished two books. If I can't figure out how to make a short story work I know business. Oh my God I love the yet we talked to and I think actually I'm gonNA. I think I've a bunch of shorts in the same universe of this nick cage in Mandy character and do what I can come back and read more okay. It's always going to gauge. You know this year. The last line of it is I was excited to start my future. The man of my dreams Nicholas Cage and I know this current nick cage like old. Nick agers this Lakeland Ryan when envisioning prime nick show shore. But I guess you could really pick you could pick anyone. Clinton describe him in too much detail either. So pick your favorite cage. I don't our listeners. Know about the net cages on. I don't know I might have mentioned it. Yeah just kind of important thing in my marriage and my group of College Friends Jeremy's apart. Yeah until there's like a lot of overlap in the Truman life but Jordan Jeremy and then had the first nick age.

Yup and pretentious potentially a humping. Because that's been happening a whole lot and lots of looking at things. Don't come over here anyway. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday. Mine was busy and then I sliced my finger. But how did you know trying to cut a croissant with a butter but it really hurt? Yeah no I mean. It's like she like she took skin off which it's funny because I chop my finger up like a chef's knife a few weeks ago it. I like the same like almost passing laid on the floor in the kitchen and like you home alone. No guiding again Jordan was here and so is his mom and his mom actually was the one like patch me up and hysteria here. Who has dead doesn't believe in going to the doctor So he was just like you'll be fine just like any electrical tape and like what she's we ended up just cutting one of the little rectangles that we Dry Springs but up with. Yeah cut those into strips and then use bandaids trash in my own little yeah. My brother-in-law has medical abilities and so he he took care of it and told me he's like I don't think you need stitches. And but then of course he. He's a dentist and he was like Oh. I wish I had my tools with me because I could just sit you right up right here. That'd be fun and no none of this sounds like funny but yeah I just have a stupid painful finger from a stupid reason. It's not even like a cool story. I guess it's a funny story but it's not. Oh No I was being a master chef and whatever so. I did not eat the croissant. After that or any other bread Fred became the enemy. Yeah I guess that's just you know my body being like. Oh yeah you need to go back to not eating carbs? I can't let you got taken out by veteran ice but besides that it was nice. Oh yeah they had lots of Thanksgiving meals of probably gained like ten pounds in the last week in. Whatever it's Christmas time that's what it's for. I mean now it's Christmas time but you know holiday time so I had three different Thanksgiving meals over pat over the span of Thursday through Sunday with awesome. So and you hosted. I hosted misfits thanksgiving. That went really. Well everything was delicious. Turkey turned out well again which is great. I ended up beating it for three days like leftovers. I don't even do leftovers. But when you've got that much food left you have to Yep and to actually finish all the jerky before it went beds. Nice Yeah we're like trying to ninety out and stuff so like that was a good start to that last night. We made tacos for dinner. So although I did order pizza on Friday but I was watching lizzy McGuire. I felt like justified. I guess he did. You get Disney Disney plus Charles put his logging for me. Nice Oh yes oh yes I have it But Yeah I've been watching the high school musical the musical series the one where they lake. It's so dramatic. Meta and Derek putting on the high school musical in high school where the high school musicals in. It's so mad and then like the car. It's like super sweet though. It's like a great little will y. Romance Song Sweet. I like it whenever we get our hands on Disney. I'm sure I'll watch it. Yeah and I only ten episodes so once it's done we do marathon Catholics. I'd be open for it because I already be watched one of the episodes so Super q like the kids actually issues. That's wonderful good. Yeah that's that's that was. My Friday night was watching Lizzy McGuire for nine hours with my friend. Ashley Oh my God because we can just sit mean have the ability to just binge like none other. She's like I either very people that can match me binge for binge. I've sat for forty eight hours in watched like entire series so Yeah that's a Good Friday night and yet it's just been a really nice relaxing few days. Good Yeah and then No surprise 'cause I can't even listen to this a couple of weeks ago I failed interim Oh Because I wrote maybe he doesn't words. Listening did rate forty five thousand words yeah. I didn't make the goal but I got to the point that I was like okay. I could try to get another five or so thousand words out in an evening or I could sit here and not do that and just like watch a movie and Yeah I think you've time will be one out. Yeah also the funny. The fifty thousand words is so funny to me. 'cause like from my books that's not a novel. No it's not a novel and so even if you have completed anything unless you're like working in a progress already open right and so I had like a big long 'cause like I'm the tenth of November. I got all sad because I wasn't able to do it and I didn't get to do it last year. I was pregnant. My job was stressful. And you know ended up being laid off like the last day of the month which doesn't affect really doing it but like my job you knew weird shit was handling midway through. They had kind of called me in for a meeting. That was like definitely feeling how they get rid of me But Sola glass straight into it but the year before I had was very successful. I sixty five thousand words or whatever so I was a little bummed out within like Jordan was just like you know it's like they it's it's like a jump starter and it's supposed to you in the habit of writing regularly so just do that if you don't finish it in November or whatever so like wrote a couple I've wrote today or a thousand words Nice Yeah I'm trying to look a little bit when she's napping It's just hard for me. I'm not that kind of writer. Look I like to sit and have a bunch of hours together. Yeah but I don't really have that luxury anymore. So no yeah and it's hard to be like okay. Well I know tomorrow like from you know for me. It'd be like I don't know six o'clock to seven o'clock that's when I can right and then to be like all right brain be creative now right. I don't I. It's hard for me just to turn that on. Yeah and it. It takes a long time for some people to do that like. That's but that's what every writer that does it for like a GIG for a job. That's what they do. Oh yeah they're like. I write from nine to eleven every day. Yeah and it's like fuck so I need to like start treating their writing. I mean like I don't want to take a look at jobs. I don't want to lose my liking of it. 'cause like I definitely burn out fast a lot like I alright like for a few months in a row alright an entire thing and then I will rest for months after. That are doesn't really work for my plans. Like I I can. Maybe another year of Another year of me staying home in US trying to have another kid if that happens and that's GONNA add another couple of years of being home to Georgia But that also means two kiddos that you're exactly figure out my life now. Yeah and so the date accommodate and also my side hustles. I need to start being more mindful of what how much time that takes out of my story Because the side hustles are growing like. I am coaching like four teams. I'm running a program. I'm bringing home like a good amount of like little little bit of money so that's Nice So any good books you've read recently So I was falling down this terrible dramatic path. Where all the books I was reading. We're hurting my feelings. I had to stop that in. So I started reading the inevitable series by Christina Oh perceive Jones So I'm trying this month to only to not read any white writers okay for December December. I want to make it as different from like how a lot of rumors starters are just straight woman. Yeah so I'm trying to branch out a little bit So I'm taking I'm trying to read more Like Black Romances specifically a I started reading her series the series the first book I read in One Night Ameri on the Second. The whole series the first book. Okay okay. I read one night and now I'm reading the second and it is so good. Their characters are so funny. And like who is this again Christina see Jones She is she a million bucks to. So I'm like. They're all on kindle limited night so I'm basically in for a treat the first in the series so the right now is inevitable. Deductions and the The first ones inevitable conclusions and it's a friends former lover still kinda lovers friends with benefits mess. Okay and it's wonderful. Second Book is the side characters from that book. Obviously the best friends And it's just it's just good. I mean like an interesting job. So in the first book it's a Broadway director former Broadway Tony winning star and a former NFL now financial advisor and in the second book. It's a former rugby. Professional turned financial adviser because he works with his best friend and a basically former supermodel that now works like reality makeover shows and stuff like that. So it's like so unique like the world scope or whatever. I just kind of voluntary Stanley. Five authors yeah so like when I last month I told you hit that wall where I couldn't find anything neutering. Well Yeah if you keep going to say well you're going to find anything so you know what I probably should read more romances. That aren't centered around white folks. I've been meaning to do that. So that's what I've been doing this month also Jordan actually like. There's a few months where he didn't read any white male boop a hit. Any white male writers And that's when he got through all of the Octavia Butler books Yeah so kind of taking a page out of his book and getting the most out of it honestly because like I guess that's usually thirty million books that's awesome about. It's going to turn into a mother probably and Oliver books kind of overlap like per. I like that her now. How Romance is yeah which I think is delightful. I I guess the time. That wasn't the case but I enjoy it whenever I could find it like because typically you can start anywhere but if you had read the previous ones and there's like little know pepperdine things about the other characters Ed you get to know and I like I like I like a world that's cohesive like that. Yeah and the other thing is like because it's a romance. You know they end up together so it's not like they're spoilers truly right because the thing about romance it's Nice. It's not about them getting together. It's how do they get together exactly? That's what we strive to achieve him writing. That's what we want so like. I know that there's books took place before this Because the characters are like being mentioned. I think I don't know. I thought that this was the first book she ever released. Tried to look at but also really new start writing a list of when their books came out or the order. They want you to read them in. Yeah I like it. When people have that information on their website because a lot of them jolt host authors don't so she's got well over thirty bucks and so I would really love to know where to start anywhere. I googled her googled book order. And this is the first book that Google Shore Hold Me from two thousand sixteen so I was like. I'm GONNA start here. It seems like I might have. She's thirty books since two thousand six at least a release them. I don't know when she actually wrote. That's true that's awesome host. Don't start releasing until they have a backlog But yeah and the other set of books I was reading was the Boston terriers series. It's the football college series and it's ridiculous it's by Jacob Chance And I also read Jacob Chances to his to hockey books how was reading a male author. Good good he actually writes his characters..

We have victorious helmet correct. You're a great and you do irate fantasy with heavy elements of romance in the fantasy perfect little bit Wyatt in there sometimes Yeah I think my last one was definitely why.

"Is advised. Dick Dick Dick Dick a girl holding the week Dick Dick Dick Dick Pic. Hello dear friends. God thing this is this is going to be an interesting did a thing. apologies in advance face. I'M NOT GONNA APOLOGIZE. But I will say. Don't listen if you aren't into us. Getting irate about silliness all right we have hinted on this on our social media. We knew this was coming out. Okay true we have hinted at this firm fucking months. Yeah that this episode was coming. We try to see it in theaters. But guess what it was there for a week. Got Tickets who weeks. Oh yeah sorry sorry sorry we were GONNA go. The suddenly Easter was in there. So that does up. Yeah so we couldn't go so we can't see it in person and then we couldn't pay because Amazon's like twenty dollars and I was like no but also took a while to get to Amazon anyway and so we're like. Oh when it gets there we'll do it. Whatever whatever and in the meantime I hate read this book and Just Live Texted Stephanie. About it the entire way. You know what we're talking about. We're talking about after after by Anna Todd Anna Todd. I assume you're an absolute wonderful delight. I've seen her interviews. She seems very sweet. I have not seen in interviews but I can buy that like. I'm sure you're absolutely wonderful. And I know when you were writing after on wet pad. It was literally like wrote a Chapter Post. It wrote a chapter post. It like I know you were writing that. Shit like that serial writing that RIA. Seriously you're not looking at what you're writing your just posting it and good for you girl that it got so fucking popular. Make that money. Get your bag for those of you. Who are unaware of what we are talking about Connor. He'd you some movie reviews before we get into it. Yeah okay. So here's the Baxter read. I haven't read any of the after because for me. It was one direction fan fiction once I realized that. So here's a fun thing about me. I sometime between fan fiction without realizing its fan fiction. Most recent it was Dave East. He's a rapper. I don't think I've ever heard of them exactly. The Thai didn't know and then I googled. They saw Hashtag Davies. Why would the Hashtag story with the name of the character so anyway but I do hear Harry styles is so? I did know this was fantastic so I did not read it. 'cause I I liked fantastic of lake like Harry. I've read no fiction fanfare. I'm a book or a movie or a Phantom not fucking real leverage in fiction fucking freaks me out weird but any shout out to your friends. Who Do that weird. Yeah LAVERTY DO. For instance do a funny. It's call. Oh shoot oh shoot. Oh God just texted me idea. Hold on hold on. Hold the horses. I'm your biggest fan fiction podcast. So the reason why I like what they're doing because it's a Lark they're doing it for fun Yeah they're not taking themselves seriously. It's all ridiculous I mean. There's I'm not hearing enjoys fan fiction of celebrities. That's it's your bag. Your bag is just for me. I feel so odd. That just wasn't a thing when we were younger like literally when we were and as we age I feel like our age group Fan Fiction has always been for books. Movies like phantoms. You have your the biggest one. Harry Potter's the biggest run. Phantom the operas my big one but I always I weirdly into hunger Games van for a while there. I just really wanted her to fuck everybody. That Opportunity Yeah Harem of men. Yes so over in this horrible scary situation. Of course fuck right now. Yeah yeah term make sense like yeah super into that for a while there's different ones have been into make habit her mediator Shit that. I wrote that and read that for a long time so for me like the fiction aspect a family are basically fan fiction because the characters are created and then different authors. Take over that increase storylines using characters that are already established and they put their own. Mix Twist on it so from coming from it from that perspective. That's why that makes sense to me. Taking human people that exist in the universe and then writing stories. We're like they're drug dealers or they're They're begging other celebrities. They don't realize have no association with so wild to me wild. It's just wild but I'd also like if you're a famous person and he was being written about you be like what are you doing with your life like why why wonder actions one of the biggest ones are so much. Liam Zane fantastic which it's just weird. They're real people. They're real people. Harry Harry Drako. Yeah that's how I admit it get it do it do it. Lee's flank her mind. Drako fantastic get it. You know what I think. I would appreciate that way more now at this point in my life that I would have like ten years ago ten years because that yeah but now yeah girl do do it wrong and break his heart exactly. Actually since we're talking about this is something I've been thinking about a whole lot recently because I I've noticed a trend of established romance writers who then open up their universe to other writers. Yeah like Penny Penny right ringing. Ride Penny Fuck me. I'm sorry Penny Penny you saying as a Penny Wiggle R. E. I D. She has like the knitting and the knitting in the city series and the Winston Brother series. She now has his whole. It's called like the Smarty Pants universe. I don't remember exactly what it is. But she like because she's always talked about. She writes like Smart Romance Novels. And I don't know how I feel about this. It's like she created this whole thing. That other romance writers can write within her universe And it's either like a side character. She created or like a thing she created in something just create characters within that universe. Just like go off from there. My friend Maggie. Does that with our friend Rachel books. She wrote one of Rachel's super tragic books. Moral folks Maggie wrote from a she mentioned the side character correlate three times maybe and maybe a fifty chapter book about Cora. Okay it was good to. It was fun because it was like she wasn't substantial enough in the storage to matter. But was that just on wet pad. Yeah John Whitehead th but Rachel's Book is published. Okay but it's her friends. Also no not yet. I think it will be make it could be. I don't know if Maggie's publishing anything now this is literally like shutting henny created like a whole like publishing world right. She kind of like helps pick and choose the different authors that she thinks would right right well within her universe and then write her characters. And I'm like kind of weird ghost writing Kinda Shit in a weird way. Except but they get their credit. They're exactly as I I don't know how to feel about it and then I saw someone else doing it. Oh Gosh I'm not going to think who else it is. In this moment people read. It doesn't matter another duo right. The each individual write books. They also write books together. They started the same thing. I've seen a lot of doing that. Now Viki land and someone someone and they now have started the same thing where people can kinda rate within their universe that's neat. I think it's a cool idea. I for we both have used e but does our joint do make sense to me. No but these are they. Oh they're giving it out to other people. Yes and that's why it's almost like I would only have so much control that it wouldn't be worth it for the person to write my character and that's how I feel about that because chew beat fair within the lake there are. I think it's fun to have Easter eggs Of Your friends writing. Yeah absolutely Mika and Christina both have details in both third book high out there in the worth they're in the same universe like Shannon in Christina's book is shown shows up I in one of Migas books but it's Christina's character cribbage Me had her book out. I but Shannon who will be two this is Christina Christina's world exactly and so it's like they have these little like things in both. There's Aaron actually wrote some details in but she's trained. I think she decided that she wants to try to go traditional. So she's taking out all those details but Zombie which shows up in my book. Yeah I always have this little Easter Egg. Because of course it's something travis would read but it's not me being. I'm GonNa take your characters and right them and make my own thing. I don't know it's a fascinating concept to me and I'm not sure how to feel about it. I think it's my thing. I wonder what the contracts look like right. I like a lot of like coming from like working in publishing a lot of questions. 'cause he was so weird well and I think it's because like at least in the penny universe it stuff she created also her little publishing Co. so like so she's like ultimate control even even if someone's ready she's still the one she's publishing it and it has like the author's name on it but then it has her little smart bipedal. Rubel like it has all that information on it. I don't know I'm fascinated by it. Marina read the author unite. Both Red Adele the nerd girl stuff up on the cons you keep talking about something here via gates gates. Yates cats and off. That's an actress Kathy Bates as an actor. Happy it's Kathy. Yard urinal league yearly the the last letter of her name is key because I read it yet has gone by yes. She has won the penny verse. Oh interesting so I'm going to read that because I like her writing. She's very delightful anyway. Sorry I love him. And that's us. This is a lot like how we watched the movie. We posit in Chattanooga other thing. We just talked on top of the movie. I really wish so many montage guys. Nothing habits in twilight when laying in a meadow and like they're sitting near each other and this is the montage of the Volga move and like it happens for four minutes and then we're just supposed to believe they're in love. You're like cool. It's been like what a week and have no idea how it's time elapsed on this. And here's the thing is finals. I don't even have the whole semester but no I think goes really fast. And here's the thing the bucket least. I feel like the book at least did a little bit better that Kinda shit of like evolving their relationship. The book also had way more of the toxic aspects of the relationship seemed terrible in this toxic. Just like someone you don't WanNa hang out with so I guess I appreciate the fact that it took out his chuck sick but they also give them a big mental disorder which I felt weird about. Yeah they didn't say like Oh he's bipolar. Oh he blah blah. They didn't give him anything that even like bill. He hasn't denied depression. He goes hardens harden. That's what they said and then landed. He came home and he just started smashing stuff. Yeah and so that seems specifically what Stephanie is talking about in the book you hear about it before you actually in it because his soon to be stepbrothers slash. What's her face? What's the girl's name battling name? I can really remember. Yeah test is best friend who hired as so mad. They're friends with Texas. Are To be like you need to come over here. Like like hardens..
"dick" Discussed on Dick of the Week
"Mature listener discretion is advised to Dick Dick Dick Dick Building the week Dick Dick Dick Dick Pic. Hello it is US Stephanie. And no one else. Not just the two of us today on this week's dicker the we. Yeah Yeah do we. Have you read anything You know I think we might because so recently I've been doing arcs and baiter eating actually for Liz and I haven't really been reading a whole lot. We actually both are trying to read a book for this book club. It's happening on Thursday and neither of us are having any luck so I don't know if that's going to happen. I I actually got suggestive. Sold something on facebook from different. It's like a PA extraordinarily group all of my ads on facebook or just wrote me and so I just have sold a book called flame by Shell Bliss and it's a it was a matter. It's a tattoo story but he rides a motorcycle but he's not an MC or anything. So I read that and then I discovered. Oh this is like second generation. So then I wouldn't found the original series was the first one called throttle me and it's about a guy who rides a motorcycle and is It's the father of our female protagonist inflame and it's him meeting. His Lady Love on the side of the road when our car breaks down and I've enjoyed them and I read the second one. It's hooked me. It's the as another one of the brothers. The brother of the first guy he fights and he pierces things. Both of us have Dick piercings. So that's good. I just had a book the Guy with the Dick Piercing. It's Dick piercingly savior. Okay Great. We have a theme and then the third one. I haven't started yet. That's called resist me. And it's the sister of these guys and her dude from the the reading thing undercover cop who works with her brother another brother so that'll be the fourth one that's undercover brother so it's delightful the family's really nice. Yeah The female protagonist the first one. She's a teacher the second one. She's a doctor an ER doctor. Yeah delightful but yeah so. I've been reading that way. And then Tessa Bailey. She's a radish she's on radish and I read her first book. And now it's too hot to handle and it was really good actually. I didn't realize that she had them in classic me on rash form. I didn't Google the book to make sure that was on Amazon. Just easily buy it for cheaper. So I use tokens. It's really fine. I'm kind of done with that APP. That's a story for another time But she's a second book called. Too Wild attainments brother of the first protagonist and it's really great because it's these four siblings there. They've left. I think San Diego to go drive to Coney island to go into the ocean on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day because her mom died and it was part of her like diarrhea or something But the first sister found love in this town where they broke down. And it's like he is the sweetest boy he's a he's a reformed manhor and Yeah and he wants to be taken seriously. So he's like he has those huge inheritance money to buy a bar that he named the liquor whole. Yeah he knows what it sounds like. That's why I did it. But he has a a restaurant that attached to it that he wants to make a series establishment to make his grandparents. And I think good read. Sorry I don't think it reads has been tracking what books I finished normally. Oh Yeah I'm like that happens giving me trouble. The other day I tried to leave a review for the one of those books arked neither Amazon nor good read saved it. I'm not blaming Amazon. Amazon was the one I put it in and they said you want to share it a good rates and I said yes insured either have definitely read a lot more books and this is showing I've been on a hockey book kick League. Apparently that's my sport of choice at the moment Which cool sorry. I'm so confused The problem is I've gone through enough books like I need to get rid of the books to get more books. But what did I read? Since could recent track there Anyway I've been reading slush listening to A lot of Maria. Lewis is books her hockey series. I think it's called like the blades Let Me Donald issues a real hockey team. No she makes up. A hockey team actually So that's something I'm fascinated with right. Now is people using fake or real sports teams or like so at least hockey hall one up. Yes I was rights called blades. Hockey is a series so the first book is power. Play all tastes place in Boston. And the her thing is that Boston already has the Bruins I think. Tank cover the Bruins is the real team and that Syria and for whatever reason the an NHL decided to put a secondary team in Boston. As well I guess it's just like a big enough population that I'm sure. Cool whatever I know nothing about this. Why not instead of picking a city? That doesn't have a hockey team. Whatever so they're the blades and now they've become popular enough. That people are into it but you know the they were always kind of secondary to the Bruins at first but yeah so I'm on the third book of that series right now and I'm enjoying it but I took a break from reading all the hockey because she had a new release out in a series that we've talked about on this show before for her Papa put a ring on it series if you remember dear listeners. We talked about Stephanie. Talked about it initially which was About a guy who was supposed he proposes to the Bachelorette fake Bachelorette cutter show which shows called. Put a ring on it And she asks him to turn her down because he didn't want to go on with it and then book to about the other. Bachelor doesn't win and then book three is actually about her the Bachelorette and The guy that she's actually been in love with for a very long time and It's not really spoil or at all because it's hinted out the entire series but you find out in book one that he actually shows up on the show and when she sees him she immediately sends him home and a whole big thing so just from that point I was like I want to know what happened there. Yeah Yeah stuck with me through two books. Love me tomorrow. It's a brand new releases. Came out about two weeks ago And I really liked it a lot but now that I'm done with that I'm trying to decide what to go back to next and apparently I need to update my my reading challenge and I had been several books ahead on my good reading challenge. And now it's like Liz. You need to read one point five books per week for the rest of the year to complete your challenge which I mean yes. That's going to happen. Finally but I should be anyway and then right now. I've just been listening to a whole lot of wearing shifter books. Which is our topic for today but before we get there. I just wanted to say one thing. Yeah I'm not GonNa read on radish anymore. Okay they've kind of I mean. I guess a latent. Mika puts her book out there. I'll do that but I the I was reading. Those like dailies is what I will call them or those reels. Yeah the ones that they like. Hire people and I discovered why I hated what was happening. I enjoyed the characters but the point of romance is a happily ever after right. And you don't get that from a serial really you don't like they'll heavily season ends. And they're always cliffhanger that usually mean like I one of the cereals I stopped reading when the couple got back together because either gonNA break them up again so I stopped reading everyone together I was done and then the last two I was reading which I was enjoying them. I ran into tokens. I was like I'm not going to buy more Because I just I read like sixty episodes of both of them. You know what I mean like. There's because it's it's dragging on like there's concrete ending. Yeah so I can't just two girls anymore. And that's kind of their pimping up the most. If you go to the first page yes bridge all cereals now so like no no dissing that. If that's your jam by you're just not my gym. I enjoy I enjoy the whole story. and like. I thought I could hang but the thing that I get too invested in characters and if you're just GonNa drag me along. I can't I just can't and that's like a personal no. I'm the same way so yeah. I think I'm radish right now. Of course if Moscow decides to drop her book on there I'll read it on their almost. I can buy it first and then we'll do that instead but yeah I don't know I guess. Maybe that's why they doing. The cereals is because like the model really is like if I like a book on their usually search Amazon books available but that's why the radish exclusive made sense to me like the ones that put it on their first and then after a few months you can put it on somewhere like Amazon. That makes sense to me. I enjoyed that. That's fine. I'll do that. I'll I'll legit will read on radish before they release them the Amazon. Yeah when I read it but these cereals I if one of them has like three hundred or two hundred some fucking episodes and I'm like I ran a soap opera fan and that's what I love a soap opera but I think there's a difference between reading suburb watching us. Oh no that's true the watching it. There's a different element to it. I don't know for some reason when I'm reading. I wear invested them when I'm watching a TV show and like I'm reading these characters and if there's always like one character that I care about the most and then I also think sometimes they're they're inventing drama. That doesn't even make sense. Yeah because they have to move forward directly so I don't know it's for me Me Jordan actually joked about me making a serial of my own based out of a bar and like just making it. The most outrageous outlandish -rageous thing like doing the weekly fifteen hundred two thousand word like is basically somebody smut but like. It's the based off these people in a bar and I'm like I'm like toilet but let's just erotica at that point. I'm like that's why maybe the problem is. I feel like a rata. I don't Plot none of platinum just one out of sex work to be our ATIKA feels like on that shallow level. These calls 'cause they're like following like too many characters. Oh because they're gonNA soap opera. That's the problem but the show is an hour long. So they'll usually hit on three storylines per day in alternate by day. That's how that's how I used to watch them when I was like fifteen. I loved them. these are allies. Look Jim But these are like following like maybe six or seven main characters and the chapter only fifteen hundred words..
