A Bodice Tipplers Small Business Saturday

Shop local with us tomorrow!  We've put together a list of our favorite Columbia area businesses for you to give your money to - people who appreciate your dollars and who, at least as far as we know, are definitely not assholes.  (If you're not here in Columbia, feel free to share some of your favorite local businesses wherever you are!  Or, hey, some of these people also sell online!)

My husband and Bodice Tipplers intern Wallace McBride has started selling his art prints on Etsy under the shop name Unlovely Frankenstein.  Can I interest you in a Harlequin romance novel cover of a classic Star Trek episode?  Did you watch Midsommar and can't understand why it's in the Horror section instead of the "everything seems to be in order here" section?  We got a poster for that.

Do you want to Single White Female us?  Go to our hair people!  Courtney goes to Brittany Miller at Five Points Salon.  Sara goes to Carly at Emerald Studio.

You know what's fucking ama…

Episode 22: Shadow of the Lynx



Shadow of the Lynx by Victoria Holt

I read this when I was a kid and it gave me VERY WEIRD KID IDEAS.  Now I'm returning to it and it is... even more fucked up than I expected?  Nora is one of those freshly orphaned smart Vicky Holt girls.  Charles Herrick, aka the Lynx, is a... brilliant sex monster?  It's hard to explain.  There's another dude too.  And a whole other family.  Is this even a romance novel?  Is this maybe a thriller?  I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE.

And, look, we can explain!  Our Four for Forty ended up being interminable and we recorded this months ago and at the end we even promo Four for Forty.... we're still, er, learning?

This is going to be okay for most people but there's definitely an extremely controlling man, there's an attempted rape that ends up with the woman safe but the man's brains splashed all over the outback, there's a good bit of murdering but mostly, you know, the genteel kind. No sex at all, overtly.

Can we appreciate this cover for a minute, though?  I love a good "women running away from houses" Gothic cover, but this one is really a fine example.
