NSBA Coordinated With White House, DOJ Before Sending Notorious 'Domestic Terrorists' Letter
"The national school board association of America coordinated with The White House Department of Justice before sending notorious domestic terrorists letter. Fox News reports. Newly released internal emails. People that the national school board association coordinated with The White House and Department of Justice before sending Biden the notorious letter that compared concerned parrots to domestic terrorists. Viola Garcia, the national school board association president, whom the Department of Education later named to a federal board sent a memo to the national school board association of America on October 11th. Providing a timeline of the national school board association's interaction with The White House ahead of the letter to Biden, which the national school board association sent on September 29th. Concern over the current climate for school board members is also a top priority as disruptions at school board meetings grow and members face growing threats, Garcia wrote, the national school board association of America is actively engaged with The White House from justice and Department of Homeland Security and Department of Education Surgeon General and other federal agencies on pandemic issues. But here's the most important thing, is that on September 14th, 2021, the nspo a organization of state directors, they were informed that they had a meeting with The White House. And subsequently on September 17th, the interim executive director emailed noticed to the state association executive directors that indicated a letter requesting federal assistance would be sent. In response to the letter sent by NSPA, on October 4th, 2021, the attorney general announced in a memorandum, widely shared throughout the U.S. Department of Justice that he was ordering all U.S. attorney officers and local FBI offices to reach out to local and state law enforcement officials to coordinate efforts on this problem within 30 days of the memorandum. This also contradicts what Merrick Garland said to Congress on October 27th. When dick Durbin asked Garland if he had second thoughts following the NSPA's apology for the letter, and Garland said quote, the letter that was subsequently sent does not change the association's concern of violence or threats of violence. It alters some of the language in the letter that we did not rely on is not contained in my own memorandum. So basically, here's what happened. Is you had collusion going on with the national school board association of America with The White House privately. They concocted this letter and then they sent the letter publicly that The White House had then the mandate to go to the Department of Justice to go say we now want to go spy on moms and dads, treat them like domestic terrorists and use the Patriot Act against people we don't

Dick durbin from illinois sending out a message. Make your mark mansion understand cinema where one heartbeat away from losing the majority.

I think we've shown a lot of respect to our colleagues who obviously have a different point of view when it comes to reconciliation. There's been meaningful negotiation. It's gone on for weeks. The president has been involved. Personally i've never seen a president engaged in this way. Since barack obama's days with the affordable care act so we're all in all aboard. Now it's time. I would say for both senators. Make your mark and close the deal. What is it that you want. What is your final goal. It's time to stop talking around it and speak directly to it. Here we go.

What mostly means is what i would call data science database artificial intelligence which is an area of research that are acted in the early nineties late eighties and the basic idea is this. You've got a routine decision that needs to be made and the way you get a computer to make it. Is you get a human. To look at a bunch of data and transcribe the data into what you want the to do. And so very powerful machine. Learning algorithms have been developed that will across a wide variety of topics replicate what that person would have done. And so we all know that that alexa and so forth and other services can transcribe voice and very good job of it and the way they did that was. They took a bunch of people speaking. And then somebody would transcribe it at eventually.

What Is Going on With OnlyFans?
"I was going to talk about the events situation at the top of this week. Show but the only fan situation seems resolved itself only fans is a platform where people can subscribe to content creators who then share exclusive photos and videos on the side. It's a site worth billions. Thanks to the sex workers and porn performer. The platform marketed itself to recruited when it first launched in two thousand sixteen and then a week ago only fans announced it was banning all sexually explicit content from its site because banks credit card. Companies processors were forcing them to they reversed course in a week. Only fans turned around and said a week later. Basically we hear you and announced that they weren't gonna ban sexually explicit content after all and would no longer be pivoting who. I don't know what what they plan to pivot to the week. Before last based tune teenagers doing lip syncs and cooking tutorials and other shit people can get for free on youtube and dick doc right now. How are you going to make money at that. But that was their plan a week and a half ago. What seems to have made the difference here. And what. I see as a sign of real progress the new york times washington post. Cnn daily papers. Npr mainstream publications went to sex workers and porn stars to get quotes about how only fans was doing to them. What facebook and instagram and craigslist had already done to them and how this being driven off the internet was making their lives harder and sex work more dangerous not a radical sex work not ending it just making it more dangerous. That's new and it made a huge difference. Abigail higgins has a terrific piece at the lily. Sex workers rallied together when only fans band sexually explicit content. They believed their voices are finally being heard. That's the headline. go read it. I'm not the only one who thinks that this new development reporters talking to sex workers about sex work is making a difference is creating some sort of seismic shift some
Author Jonathan Eig Discusses His New Book 'Ali: A Life'
"Book is ali a life biography. And it's incredible and the author of jonathan joins us on the podcast. We're going to kind of do an ollie specific pot here so let's start at the beginning just like the book does his family's two generations removed slavery. We know there are some history that none of us really knew about. Even he didn't know about about his own grandparents. He has a father whose abusive but talented. They weren't a destitute family by any means In their neighborhood louisville it was. It was a family that was probably doing better than some others. But i think the the foundation of who ali became as a person. How did he develop this kind of unpolished. Personality is non compromising personality at such a young age. That's really one of the central questions to understanding. Ali and i think it goes to understanding american history. You know when. I interviewed dick gregory for this book. He said to me e books not going to be worth a damn. If you can't explain. What made a kid from the jim crow south same age as emmett till think that he could talk back to white people and get away with it that he can call himself the greatest when everybody around him was telling him he was a second class citizen. You got to be able to understand what made ali capable of that. And it's a really difficult question. I mean it's really complicated. Part of it is that he grows up in. Not the deep south louisville thinks of itself as more progressive. There are some opportunities That wouldn't be available to him anywhere else For example to to walk into a boxing gym at age twelve and have a white cop offer to help him and to be to get in the ring and mix it up with white kids. That didn't happen in alabama or mississippi. But it did happen in louisville and so all of these things And the fact that his father was really a you know a fighter Not in the boxing sense. Which is somebody who didn't think that we should have to take the the conditions that we were born into because of this racist country that that That we live in.

We were wired for sound but it was very funny so i talked to our big boss here. At salem radio fill boys and we had a great conversation he said i might be looking for someone. How far away is glendale from your house in los angeles and so i started filling in a bid. Now they went into a different direction. They have the show at three person. Show alicia krause. Ben shapiro and dip brian whitman and unfortunately for the three of them in two thousand sixteen none of them liked trump. And i really kind of i don't wanna say fell in love. It wasn't like a romantic love. But i really saw the appeal of president trump. From that moment that he came down the escalator. I knew he was tapping into something important. He had this. He had this message. He was brave enough to talk about immigration. Which i hadn't seen anyone in our party do before and as someone who lives in california. I knew this immigration problem was not only affecting us but the entire country and he talked about it and he wasn't afraid and he talked in a language that people could understand. And so i got it. And i would start talking about it on the show that i was hosting at salem radio the jenin don show up time. That's where we met seb when through. Don dick's my partner on that program and so the program director at the station said you know you've been doing some fillon here. Why don't you come in and just temporarily be a fourth person in the room. And so there were four of us on that morning show and three of them did not like

My dead grandma heard me after a steamy summer day in sonoma's county california the air cooled as evening approached. I looked up from the kitchen sink to gaze at the majestic redwoods that lined our property. Those trees mark the edge of our land and the beginning of our neighbors massive yard displaying a variety of fruit trees and gorgeous flowers. The beauty was contrasted by my grumbling. Swear words as. I washed a never ending supply of dishes. Why can't anyone else in this house. Do dishes broken arms allergic to water trying to make me crazy note to self. Check the security cameras for evidence that my family is plotting against me. I glanced at my watch and all my angry dishes thoughts disappeared because it was five o'clock and angelic humming entered my head. Five o'clock is a socially appropriate our to open a bottle of wine especially as a stay at home. Mom five o'clock also means dinner. Prep the menu featured stakes that night. Because hydration is vital to sustaining life. I carried my wine with me to start the barbecue. I opened the white french doors. And sauntered across the redwood dick to the built-in barbecue. I placed my glass on the gray flagstones counter to the right of the grill and swung open the lid. A primal scream erupted from my mouth. As i slammed the grill lid down. Oh my god. There is a rat in the barbecue.

Will Valve's Steam Deck Really Change How PC Gamers Play Games?
"Week's show if he visited any gaming sites within the last few days, you've likely seen some sort of a headline talking about the valve steam deck, which is kind of like a Nintendo switch. But for PC games, Robbie was the stream that Robbie esteem Dick really changed the way PC gamers play games. Oh, that's a little bit of a loaded question. There may be well, let me just say my favorite headline that I saw since you mentioned that it was on a gaming websites. It was like a satire website like the Onion, but it said, uh, steam announces the new Nintendo switch pro. That's sort of what's happening. So Robbie tell us a little bit more about what the steam Deck even is to be good. Yeah, So I mean, look, if you're familiar with the switch, that's essentially what you're looking at, right there looking to create the same experience that you get from the Nintendo switch. But instead of you know, the switch games have to develop games specifically for that platform. Anything that's playable on computer should be playable on the steam deck. So you know, portable hand hand held claims to be able to run the latest triple A games, which, obviously not every Triple A game is going to be on the Nintendo switch. They say it completely your steam library anywhere. The doc is going to be sold separately. So if you wanna be able to play it on your T V, you will need to buy that. Whatever the price ends up being the deck is releasing in September and the cheapest version is going to be $399 now has a 70 screen. Same as what the switch does. Controllers don't detach, and some of the tech specs in it are actually comparable. To even the Xbox series X

But that's not all that makes the island unique it's the backdrop for one of the most bizarre murder mysteries which includes poly-amorous fake teeth. Giant tortoises and murder. Today we're gonna talk about the galapagos affair so the human history of the glucose islands doesn't begin with charles darwin really though his visit in eighteen. Thirty five definitely. Put the islands on the map will literally put it on the map. Us whalers and pirates were already. they're hunting giant galapagos tortoises. These tortoises were actually very humongous. Very slow think like thousands of pounds and could live for years in the hold of a ship providing fresh meat on long. Voyages flurry an island in the galapagos. Has the most human activity and it's the only island with a fresh water supply in eighteen twenty. All the giant tortoises were killed on the island. When crew members of the ill fading whaling vessel essex torched it for no apparent reason after the essex left a sperm whale sunk their ship. So there you go for months. The sailors drifted helplessly in lifeboats sunburn. Starving before turning to cannibalism to survive. They drew straws to see who became food for the rest and then they do another straw to decide who would kill that person of the twenty crew. Only eight survived. They were found off the coast of south america. Insane and knowing that human bones their story inspired herman melville's novel moby dick.

"dick" Discussed on Dick of the Week
"Mature listener discretion is advised. We did dick dick. Dick dick dick dick dick dick dick. Hello everybody and welcome to this week's episode of of the week. I am your host. Liz circle and stephanie is still on baby. Leave she'll be hopefully back sometime after the holidays but i have a very special guest with me today. Come in all the way from new york city. Miss hattie hays how thank you so much. I'm so excited. What what it did was week. This week is going to be. Yeah but the funny thing is like. I think we've had to on the show before it isn't very common that we actually have dick's on the show right. It's it's i think that's Let the girls bring the dick's that's harder. That's the future liberals want. I'm very we have the big dick energy. It's fine that's very true. I've been told that on multiple occasions. I well i've been told. I have a lot of different energies but beatty ease up there definitely top three well today. We have a very exciting topic. We're gonna be talking about the new hulu movie happiest season but before we jump into. That had some of your background when it comes to romance books romance movies things around along those lines on some of it. You asked So i am a big. I'm a big romantic. And i definitely came into kind of later in life. I remember being in middle school in high school and my mom and i'm watching rom coms and me never shedding a tear and never getting emotional and being like this now. I'm too good for this. And something happened when i was you know in in high school and i was getting closer to adulthood and one day switch flipped and suddenly i was just any move. We watched even vaguely romantic plotline. I was sobbing very very sensitive. Very romantic i'm a big reader. Watch a lot of a lot of movies. I as you've seen on twitter. I've been going through a lot of the holiday rom coms just working my way through them. And one thing that i've been doing a lot of quarantine is watching Some more of the classic queer rom coms which there. Aren't that many a lot of of the queer romcom super dated Bread makes sense. I guess in terms of that's why people were so excited for happiest season because it felt like you know maybe this is our shot at good representation and i. I'm also as you know this too. I'm a big taylor swift fan. I'm actually right now. Wearing all taylor swift march and i ran a limited series. Podcast with my friend. Sarah kennedy who's also a comedian like me. That focused on queer interpretations of taylor swift's lyrics so when it comes to queer romance Some would say. And i am talking about myself. Some say that few people write a query. Earning more wealth than better than taylor swift. And i feel qualified. I i feel qualified status. i'm. I'm a bisexual woman and i don't think i ever associated a taylor swift song with a man or at least not primarily with the man. So i i ca- qualified to say the official soundtrack of we're yearning is taylor swift. There we have it's official. Which is fascinating. Because i feel like taylor way more than any other. Female artists constantly is picked on because of her male relationships. She had through the years. And everyone assumes every song is based on whatever break-up has been the most recent one so fascinating to hear and i. I remember jeremy telling me that you had that podcast but it is fascinating to hear that you don't even think of men at all on your examining her lyrics. One part of the thing too is i. I was a closeted teen And nothing is a bigger tell that someone is or at least for me. Nothing for me was a bigger shell that i was queer than how boy crazy. I acted and how anytime that someone wanted to assume i was interested in. A boy was yes that is true. It is the boy who i like. And only the boy I was if you were going to assume that i was interested in just men. I was going to let them think that for a long time that make sense. Especially i mean like i feel like now. Teenagers have a little bit easier. Like i feel like things like tiktok and instagram and all that have made it like not cool to be queer but like way more generally accepted than like when we would have been in highschool right when you can actually interact with other queer people. And i remember You know when. I was coming of age There were still spaces on the internet. That work queer spaces but more often than not They felt anonymous at now. I think for as much as know pivoting. Video is something that we talk about And kind of make fun of from a media standpoint democratizing the kind of democratizing of queer identity in that way has made it so people don't necessarily feel like they have to be anonymous online justin who autism animus online. 'cause corporations don't want you to be but I think that's also helped people to their queer identities and career communities in a way that feels more authentic. Yeah that makes a lot of sense so you mentioned a little bit that you your comedian. Obviously you've done some podcasting What else what else makes hattie hattie hayes on how to his rights that's What had been doing all of this year. I i know you. You just finished in ohio You're recording this early december. And i didn't nanno raimondo. But i did right. I did finish writing my first novel this year. And it is it is gay.

Hoops I i also I'm working on a number of short stories that i am constantly brushing up and resubmitting places and not getting published sunday and go figure they're pretty much all gates you oops look i have a type Yeah i i am a writer.

"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..

"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?.

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.

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.

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.
"dick" Discussed on Dick of the Week
"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
"Dirty language where rated M for mature listener discretion is advised. Took the week Dick Dick Dick Dick Dick AGO building during the week? Dick Dick Dick Dick you got hello and welcome to this episode of Dick. The we have a head cold so I sound like this and we'll probably snuffle on your yours. Yeah so I'm working on a not yet. Released calamity cash show and Daniel. Our resident You Know Audio Tech Dude. Who's also my co host in. That show was like Liz. You sniffle allot alike. Not all the time. Yeah I just like perpetually stuffy right now I think it's a weird mix of winter allergies. What the fuck is that? Keeps warming up so spores and staffer happening in real cold. So you get the allergy and then you get sometimes a cold because the weather's Yohan enough out well and my stupid basement keeps getting wet so we always have a fan going down here because the carpet gets what. I'm sure. She's getting moldy which isn't going to help anything with my yes duffy ass. No so. You're welcome. Yeah I'm sorry. My whole family has a cold right now. My baby everybody. It's just a good time. It's a good time in the Kazakh House. Right yeah and then like late last week. I sneezed nonstop for like two or three days to the point that like my best friend just had a baby and she was in the hospital and like. I'm sorry I'm not comfortable right. You're not sure what is I. Don't know if this is a cold allergies or what this is but I'm not risking anything. You just had a C section. You just have a brand new baby like I don't need to. I appreciate it but that sucks. Yeah Yeah So. That's hard that was my biggest fear. I had gotten a cold but two weeks before I was due to have. Sabrina and I don't know student masks while I'm giving birth. I would not have done now going to be honest with you. I like and she's breastfeeding news. Like she's going to have your germs. But like there's a lot of MOMS will wear the masks biggest fear I was looking for. They're gonNA like mass or they're going to look down on me if I don't because I'm like really claustrophobic. So that little mask would have really freaked me out on top of pushing me but it'll cleared up within time yeah. Hfs sucks any babies that are born right at like flu. Cold seems really cool. Please visit me but don't if you are ICKE. I was really glad there's a lot of most of our family gets flu shots because we have a lot of people in our family in like. We've got immersed in mine Nephew so like we've got people yeah But it was ice. Cler friends all like a lot of friends. Flu Shots or really. Were careful about coming over. Yeah put around so that was nice. Yeah but yeah. We're we went from not being sick for a whole year with Sabrina to now. This is our third illness in three months. So cheese. Yeah happens it happened at least the head. Cold is better than its stomach. Flu had yeah when they say the baby's like on the first year should have a bunch of cold and we'd never had one really until that first one in January so I guess I shouldn't complain And she's teething mixture of a lot of things. She's cut to new teeth on the top fourteenth. Now she's wild But yeah it's it's a she's really a nightmare and she looks starting to like flail and like kind of hit a little bit. Oh no one's like when they certainly testing their physical boundary. Yeah and so she put me in the ear today and I put her on the floor and I was like no you can't. It's until eighteen months old that you can take a correction right. They don't understand what that means. They usually just divert their attention. That's and I actually don't say no to your under two year old because it will just make you crazy because they don't know and like it'll destroy so if you say no like psychologically you expect someone to do something so it's like a psychological setup so you just shouldn't say no but like I took her little hand and kissed it and I put her on the floor. I was like no. We don't hurt Mommy. And she cried and other well and so. I sat on the floor with her. That's the new thing is I'm not gonNA hold you when you're throwing a tangent because that's not but it will sit near you. Shore she down within two minutes. But it's like having never villages is cold it's like everything's in the World Rama cleave when my eldest nephew was really little was around the time that I got my cartilage pierced and and he just I was with him. I was with him. Weekly and the damn thing wouldn't hill and he would just keep smacking me in the ear because like shiny thing. Or what is that like and you know. I didn't wear really any kind of dangling earrings or necklaces or Nail Polish. Or anything around him when he was young but like yeah my cartilage. I couldn't do anything about because it was still healing and Oh my God it took forever to heal because he every smack to the ear gone. I'd be like in tears because it hurt that bad and I no. She taught me and my nose really hard the other day but is were watering and she's looked at me like what happened. Why are you sick because two to five minute? Attention SPAN. Yeah she's already moved on. Why why is Mommy say so? Yeah that's my. My new daily fight is like catching her in moments versus letting things kind of I duNno. I should who knows Well so for first order of business. I have a book. I've been reading because I have been wildly busy with Improv stuff. The past couple of weeks have Severally been reading or writing for that matter but it's Megan Quinn's the secret crush so you might remember from a couple of weeks ago where I was so excited because I thought it was going to be the book or the youngest brother. No secret crush to me was the woman but I forgot that the the name of the books is for the boy. So the secret crushes actually the third. Because it's the second chance. Yeah and see and then the one you're in the second owner now so it's what's that one. That one is sorry. I'm confused that's the second that's a forever girl forever girl. So let's God. Can they say that title so many time he? It's a lot. It's a lot of branding. But yeah so that's his girl. And then this one is the secret crush from his perspective which is also from hers. Obviously but like I was really excited because that was one of the youngest brother. Who's the sweetheart that owns the car shop? Yes I can't wait for him. It's not but we just funny enough. I just looked it up and it is. It is pre ordered. It was called something swooning. Swoon eve woman the suny feeling but it comes out in August. So we're not feeling is what it's called so again. I miss understood what was happening but I did. Circuiting this third book though. He's a chef. So that interest me. Yeah in read is actually like a so if you've read them. Griffin is like your Boy Scout. Pretty eldest brother pretty straight laced. Not Nothing to it makes sense. We're going in holy. Does I'm GonNa just like we forgot about. I did forget about reading lately. Forgot about but like so Griffin's like you're straight laced good guy longhair. Firefighter has a dead wife boom but he blamed himself out because of a curse and so the second is Rogan. Who's just a fucking asshole? And that's the book I'm working on right now and he no way like there's parts of it. I really like her a lot. I like her a lot. I liked and there's other parts of it. They're both from the same town whereas like the first book She it's he's created all the boys are from the town but she moved there from like across the Kyle Sherman way big massive change because she had a bad break up shit bag accident. Oh she just needed a big life change yet. Ironically the first book starts with an accident. Yeah so that's really fun and so yeah. Second Book Is High School Sweethearts High School. They go to college together. They break up in college. And you're slowly figure out what went wrong what happened. And you know from the Gecko like you know from one that he was in an accident that ruined his chances for professional football. But you don't know why am I and I won't tell you why but my biggest complaint about the book. Thus far is it's not a secret to literally anyone theater but the reader. Yeah he knows obviously he knows. It's his body. He knows because she was with him. Every entire family knows the entire town knows because everyone in the town is in each other's business everyone except the reader knows. I understand withholding information. If like one of the main characters doesn't know it so we don't find out 'til they know it right but she knows it and just like it's all in first persons. It's like she has referred to as the accident or that thing or whatever and like he refers to it as like before and after the accident which. I don't think is realistic. Especially what is wrong with him and like it? Just it just for me. It was like I read it because I didn't think it was a big deal. I didn't read it but the now talking to Liz about it now. I'm like Oh that was supposed to be a big reveal shocking moment and now I feel kind of weird about it. But you'll read it you can say But Yeah Rogan hard. An asshole stirred up honestly. Think if the thing that was going on with him was revealed earlier it'd be easier to handle his ASS holiness and said you're just like cool. Bro. You didn't get to the pros. Most people don't get to be in the pro athlete. Get the fuck over it stopping deck to literally everybody Bro. Right and and like not saying oh you learn about someone having an element or disability or whatever and that automatically makes behaviors. Okay makes me okay? But you can lease understand a little bit where he was coming from especially as he was a young college reacts to him because I feel like that to me is also like she puts up with a lot. Yeah but she put up with a lot like he's like borderline abusive to her. Yeah like emotionally is not kind and you find out that he was worse and you find out that boyfriend. She was with them which I don't know the full details yet but you know from the get-go that she just left a man who was abusive somehow physically emotionally or what there yet. And so like you can start seeing a pattern. Yeah Yeah Yeah and like. I feel like if you're like. Oh this guy. Literally his life shattered and he's a young kid like he doesn't understand how to handle anything. You're okay. I understand where you're only twenty eight or twenty nine in the book right. He's twenty eight in the book and it's been seven years since April. Yeah so it's like it's he's still young. Yeah but he's still very young. Yeah he's grown up a lot in the last ten years. That book is crazy but then we get to the third book which is okay but the secret crush. And that's read Eve Eve so reads the one that lost his restaurant in Boston. Yes which is another thing that the family just hints about but doesn't talk about but like it's bad honestly this book's great because it tells you about it like almost from the jump like good you get like he's very unlike Rogan. He's very upfront about his feelings. Like how he feels about stuff. He's just an asshole a lot more palatable I think And so 'cause they always talk about he's the other cranky brother he's got a cookie rather but he's the one that the jokes like when he was a teenager always jacking off and like everyone knew what he was doing but his story is. It's Eve is his old business partner in ex. Best Friend's Twin sister yeah so And he saw him as his best friend. Even don't talk about like on birthdays and stuff and it's very awkward. 'cause like and. I think that's that's pretty realistic. I feel like when people look face it that they've lost their friend. 'cause yeah I noticed. That book to read is talking to eve in the bar. She works at. Yeah and she's like just because your best friends to my twin doesn't mean Blah Blah Blah that. We're friends. I was like wait. I thought they weren't best friends. Yeah and like so the best part you find out. It's just it's deere classic brother Sister Your crush situation here for it. Yeah I love that and like the conflict is like heightened because she's getting a A degree in business so before their business so she stayed home with their adopted. The twins oh before before their business under. She stayed home with their ailing.

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.

"Mature listener. Discretion is advised to the week. Dick Dick Dick Dick Building the week. Dick Dick Dick Dick. Hello and welcome to this episode of Dick the week. I'm your host Liz. And as we hinted at in the last episode. Stephanie is not with me today instead. I'm with a whole Gaggle of romance writers. Sorry we just keep rolling with the punches here at the wheat anyway. I am in Michigan. With writer. Friends sobbed. Just go around the table. And introduce them to my right. Because you can see that Christina Mitchell. We've talked about her quite a bit on the show and how much Stephan. I love her high. You can too right. Christina Irate contemporary a romance and it's like a lot of angst ridden a good amount of money we'll snark links sounds good and then we have make Asher whose another name. We dropped quite often on this show and you incorrectly. Now that we want I am because let's me irate romantic comedy comedy so it's a little smirke a little sexy. Maxi next year. It's very snazzy. Next thing I feel like you need to Trademark that probably should and make it the official cashier tag. I mean I was drunk when I came up with it. But it's a good time to come up in Golden Hour. 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. And when I'm writing now is adult awesome and another name that gets dropped here mostly because of her podcasting chops Aaron King Hi. Y'All have heard me before I talked about fan fiction with you. Yeah she's been. I guess before the second time guesting yes so that was long distance gusting. This is in our face gusting base in our face. I am all up in Liz's face right now. It's really him. Well you know this is which again looking exist. Most of the ladies here are from or at least living not necessarily from but live in Michigan and then Erin is from the DC area. And I'm in the Saint Louis area so we got a nice little mix going on between the romance we write and our locations and that good stuff I also write contemporary romantic comedy. I didn't say that I just jumped right in talked about licking so as I do. Yeah I have a brand.

"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..

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.

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..
