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 25 - Thanksgiving SUPERSPECIAL (featuring Carved in Stone)




SO.  Y'all.  Happy Thanksgiving and also decolonize yourself!

We were originally going to do two books for the holiday, one racist piece of shit and one good one full of nuanced representation.  But on further discussion, we decided that it's just not okay for us to do a big episode where we give one of these racist-ass books the full yuk-yuk treatment.  So we combined it into a big Superspecial!!! where we discuss the history of Native Americans in romance in general and First Love, Wild Love by Madeline Baker and also do a more traditional second half where we do our usual treatment of Carved in Stone by Kathleen Eagle.

Courtney did a great piece we pushed out earlier this month on the history of "Indian" romances, particularly their covers, here.

Last year, we did cover a racist book, and we won't do that again - but our post for it was still quite good, and includes a playlist of Native American music, lists of romances by indigenous authors, foodways talk, and more!  Check that out here.

We loved Carved in Stone and we also love Kathleen Eagle!  She isn't Native American herself, but her husband and children are Sioux and also she has a great picture of herself and her husband visiting Deadwood in one of those sepia toned saloon dress-up things which I feel you need to see:

I still feel that "fake Western brothel photos" are folk art Glamour Shots.

We also made a banger playlist inspired by the silly-ass country songs they talk about when the characters are at a bar - we both are well aware of humorous (sometimes satirical!) country, but had to be introduced to "I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home". So this is a gift we also give to you.
