Women and Words: The GCLS 2016 Roundup

July 17, 2016

Women And Words


WHEW! Jove is still on her #epicroadtrip for another 20 days, people! But we actually managed to do a show that included a discussion of GCLS (Golden Crown Literary Society conference) that we both attended last week in the Washington, DC area. So the brunt of this show focuses on that, and it runs a little longer than usual. We’re going to try to not do shows this long in the future except for special occasions like this one. J

Meanwhile, on the Women and Words blog: 

10 July: Ylva author Catherine Lane joined us to chat about her latest release, Heartwood, and to discuss a bit about the process of getting a cover right for it. She’s also doing a giveaway…

Andi and Jove do a GCLS roundup. Or, what we did on our trip to the con. Which involved a lot of running around, a lot of exhaustion, a lot of fun, and some cray-cray. J
