246. Sleepy Bitches at RT: Our Impressions of the 2017 RT Convention in Atlanta

As we have in past years, Amanda, Carrie, Elyse, Redheadedgirl, and Sarah gathered in a hotel room to talk (again, tiredly) about Romantic Times. We discuss the Atlanta RT, what we liked, what we noticed, and what we enjoyed most. We start by talking about meeting so many of you (YAY BEST PART!), and about Arthur, who manages the lines at RT in brilliant ways. We cover our favorite events, including the incredibly fun and positive energy of our Reader Recommendation Party, and some of the panels we attended or in some cases were on. Sarah’s mind is repeatedly occupied with her evolving theory of effective swag, and when we all start snacking we get a little punchy on sugar discussing our wish list of future panels and workshops – big fun! Key moment: discover how many bath bombs is too many.

 And we have some more episodes from RT coming, too, including the audio of our live recording, which was SO much fun. Massive, effusive thanks to all the Patreon supporters who made it possible.

If you’re audiobook shopping, I have three narrators to recommend – no, wait, four! I have four!

  1. Renee Raudman narrates the Ilona Andrews series, and she’s terrific at it. I did an interview with her a few years ago and she talked about developing Curran’s growl, which is – yeah, it’s awesome.

  2. The late Anna Fields narrated many of Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ books, and she was exceptionally good, especially at comic timing, which is difficult when it’s your own words, let alone someone else’s.
  3. And, of course, Nicholas Boulton, who performs Laura Kinsale’s books, and, yeah, go find a sample. Trust me.
  4. And despite the fact that they are abridged, Richard Armitage narrated several Georgette Heyer novels. I’ve listened to each of them several times.
