Episode 9 - Badsquirrel and Amber

This episode Andy and The Rev talk about two fan fiction stories which fall into the erotic category: Dark Side of the Moon by Badsquirrel and Nights of Silk and Sapphire by Amber. Both of these can be found at or The Athenaeum (  We both thoroughly enjoyed the stories, as well as our drink selection, the Kir Royale.
Be aware, dear listeners, that this episode is much more spoiler filled than some of the others.
For those of you who want to check out Amber’s artwork, here’s a link: It’s pretty cool!
Here’s how you make a Kir Royale:
In a champagne flute add 1/2 ounce of creme de cassis then fill with your champagne of choice. Super easy.
Happy New Year!

Episode 8 - Merry Shannon

This episode features the novels of Merry Shannon: Sword of the Guardian and Branded Ann. Andy and Rev highly recommend both of these great books! You can see more about Merry Shannon and her work at 
The other two fantasy books we talked about were Banshee’s Honor ( or and When Women Were Warriors ( We also had a short discussion about Sea Legs by KG MacGregor. And hermaphrodites. I hope Andy can find that story!
Here’s a link to The Gardener!
We talked about some holiday gift giving suggestions. Here are some suggestions we had:
  • L-Book now offers gifting of ebooks – and a free holiday ebook with purchases with short stories from some of their fine authors.
  • The Passion Planet has a special holiday goodies section if you’re looking for something more intimate.
  • Cafe Press (we picked Colette Moody’s for the link) – lots of merchandise!
  • Kiva is a great way to give the gift that really keeps giving.
We wish you the very best of everything this holiday season! Catch you next year!
We were supposed to have Hot Buttered Rum. The Rev tried it the night before recording – didn’t like it. Here’s the recipe for that:
In a coffee cup add
2 oz dark rum
1/2 oz sugar syrup or tsp brown sugar
Pinch of nutmeg
Fill mug with hot water
Garnish with a cinnamon stick and pat of butter
Note: sugar syrup and simple syrup are one and the same. If you want to make your own sugar syrup: in a sauté pan bring 2 or 3 cups of water to a boil, then turn heat down on low. Gradually stir in 2 or 3 cups of sugar, 1 minute to add while stirring, and maybe one more minute to ensure full dissolve. Let cool to room temp and funnel into a empty bottle.

Episode 6 - Winter Pennington and Allie

We were joined by special guest Sea Breeze as we shared our thoughts on Witch Wolf by Winter Pennington and Open to Persuasion by Allie.

Both stories were enjoyed, even if Rev had to strong-arm Andy into reading Open to Persuasion.

We also launched off on a tangent about Passion and Perfection ( and all the great fandoms available there. For those of you who have a reader of some sort, check out the archives section on the bottom left hand side for the archives section for loads and loads of compiled stories in several different fandoms: So if you're looking for some good reading, check these out!

We hope you'll join us for the next show. We'll be reading Life's Little Edge by Roselle Graskey (the online version since the published one isn't available on ebook) and Mephisto Aria by Justine Saracen (published by Bold Strokes and available in ebook.)

Episode 5 - L. J. Maas

This episode, Andy and The Rev are joined by Sue Garrett, Chief Scribe over at They've even set up a separate section for L. J.'s work:

We hope you enjoy the show! We had lots of fun doing it. And The Rev discovered that gin affects her memory and nearly puts her on equal footing with Andy's menopause related CRS (can't remember shit) Syndrome. We enjoyed Gin and Tonics and, after that, Rev also enjoyed the Gin Rickey.

And Sue solved the riddle of which fic has the big ol' ivory phallus. It's in the Conqueror and Amazon Series by romansilence, Echoes of Darkness. I read the part she told me about and I do believe this is the right story. She ROCKS!

Episode 4 - The Conqueror

That's right, it's all Conqueror, all the time. We love the Conqueror and selected a few of our favorites to talk about. We selected Conquering Heroine by CN Winters & Amy, The Conqueror's Stone by DJWP, Curse of the Conqueror by Enginerd, and The Edge of Nowhere by Annemaart.

And the Conqueror Coffee Cooler was fantastic! Here's how to make it: take 4 oz of cold coffee, 1 1/2 oz of vodka, 1 oz of heavy cream, 1 oz of coffee liqueur, and 1 tsp of sugar and shake 'em together with some ice. Strain it into a large glass and add a small scoop (or dip for those of you who use that term) of coffee ice cream. Stick a straw in it and enjoy! We did.

Check out the Academy of Bards for lots of great Conqueror stories and here's a link to a site that Andy recommends that's all about the Conqueror stories:

We also want to share a link to Cas' blogspot - Xena & Ubers. Cas reads, well, Xena and Uber stories. She does a great job so check her out: She's also available on iTunes so you can subscribe and listen to some great fic while you're working or driving. Thanks, Cas, for all you do!

Episode 3 - Kim Pritekel

Andy and The Rev talk about all things Pritekel - to include the proper pronounciation of her name.

Her written work can be found at, The Athenaeum, and PD Publishing. But there's more to this talented writer than just words - she's also a film maker. Check out what she's doing, and has done, at The trailer to her newest project can be seen here:

In honor of Bible Thumping (and communion wine) we enjoyed red wine with our chat.

As promised, here's a link to Kodi Wolf's site where you can read her work.
