#91: Harper Should Be a Barrel of Raging Hormones

January 21, 2021
In this week’s episode, Harper talks about her new Bliss-dom and her slower pace for life. Work on At Your Most Beautiful is progressing, both the book and the cover.
 
Caroline is thinking of translating one of Harper’s books into French so she’s reading Nos chemins détournés, the French version of The Road to You, and she’s loving it.
 
We binged Bridgerton over the weekend and loved it. So much so that we’ll be attending the online talk with the author of the novels, Julia Quinn. And to fight the black hole we found ourselves in when we finished Bridgerton, we used our almost-expired Apple TV+ membership to watch The Morning Show.
 
Harper is experiencing a book hangover after finishing The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.

January 14, 2021
This week’s podcast episode is slightly different from our usual blabbing as it focuses on answering a listener’s questions about starting out in LesFic. But the episode comes with a disclaimer: don’t listen to just one person’s advice, especially Harper’s! We touch on the topics of newsletters, Kindle Unlimited, and advertising, among others.
 
We finished our Bosch binge and have started watching Fran Lebowitz's Pretend It’s a City on Netflix, which is basically a window into Harper's future.

#89: Harper’s Word of the Day is Pointless

#89: Harper’s Word of the Day is Pointless

January 8, 2021

This is first episode of 2021 is slightly longer than usual, but definitely not more professional nor profound.

Harper is back to writing after some time off for the holidays. She’s loving her book and practising the art of slow writing.
 
Caroline has been cooking a lot of recipes from Yotam Ottolenghis’s book Flavour, which have all been delicious. She’s also been reading a lot and just finished The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett and can not recommend it enough. Harper’s current read, Laziness Does Not Exist by Devon Price is helping embrace a slow life and her philosophy of Lez Is More.
 
After finishing our rewatch of The Wire, we’re now bingeing Bosch, which has a few more women than The Wire, but still not enough.

Harper revealed her fantasy casting for At First Sight on her blog
 
The audiobook of A Breathless Place is now available at some more retailers, but also to buy direct from us.

#87: Harper Had to Be Scraped Off the Floor

December 24, 2020
This episode starts with a little excerpt of Harper’s piano playing. She decided to be active on Instagram for a day and it wiped her out. She also sent out her end-of-year newsletter which made her realise there were ten audiobook releases in 2020!
 
Harper melted at the sound of Abby Craden’s voice reading out song lyrics in A Breathless Place. The audio of A Breathless Place is on its way to retailers, but it might already be available to purchase on Authors Direct (unfortunately only for people in the US, EU/UK, Canada, and Australia.) 
 
In entertainment news we really enjoyed the Strictly Come Dancing final, but are now deep into our The Wire re-binge. We are looking for recommendations for some more women-centric shows, though.

Pink Bean 10, At First Sight, is out! Luckily Launch Week did not coincide with PMS week this time. 
 
Harper has a new-found respect for social media managers after the ‘campaign’ she set up for the new release. 
 
Several of our Lockdown 2.0 shows are ending this week. Luckily we just started rewatching The Wire, so that should occupy us for a while. We also enjoyed the second season of Craith, which has an unusual villain.
 
Harper is one of the lesfic authors featured in Clare Lydon’s Lesbian Book Club Festive Special.

December 10, 2020
This week we’re preparing for the launch of At First Sight, and we have some good news for people who preordered it from the Harper Bliss web shop. Harper is also having fun writing her current book.
 
Life in Bits, Harper’s Christmas co-write with T.B. Markinson, is out in audio now. There are some giveaway codes available on a first-come first-serve basis, try out for one here.
 
We watched another lesbian Christmas movie, A New York Christmas Wedding, which was okay in a low-budget Christmas-movie kind of way. We also very much enjoyed Deadwater Fell, a thriller mini-series, set in Scotland, starring Cush Jumbo, who shines in it. 
 
Finally, Harper shares her motto for 2021.

#84: Harper Has Been Preheating the Oven for Three Weeks

December 3, 2020
Harper thought she was having an existential crisis last week, but turns out it was just PMS. She’s back to writing now and all she wants to do is talk about her book, which is almost too Harper Bliss for Harper to handle.
We’re putting the final touches on At First Sight (Pink Bean 10), which will be out on 15 December. You still have a few days to preorder it at a dollar cheaper than the release price.
 
We had a pretend restaurant date at home, which was really lovely, and a great way to support one of our local restaurants. Harper also saw her family (at a safe outdoor distance) for the first time in months.
 
We’re loving the light entertainment of Strictly Come Dancing. Harper is especially loving one of the judges. Caroline just finished reading Grown Ups by Marian Keyes and highly recommends it. Harper is enjoying The Midnight Library by Matt Haig.

November 26, 2020
Harper is struggling a bit this week, and hasn’t been writing, but she’s been taking a trip down the Pink Bean memory lane on her socials. 
 
We still have a promo going on all Pink Bean books on the Harper Bliss webshop. It ends on November 30, so be quick! French Kissing: Seasons 1-3 is on sale too for a few days.
 
In other good news: we’ve received the audio recording of A Breathless Place from Abby Craden. To tide people over until that is released, If You Kiss Me Like That came out in audio this week!
 
We watched The Boys on Amazon, which although very Boys-y and gory, we really enjoyed. We also watched two Christmas movies, to varying degrees of enjoyment.

This week, Harper started on her new book, which is a quintessential Harper Bliss age-gap romance.  She has also found her walking Bliss by going on long walks, listening to amazing podcasts.
 
 
We talk a bit about audiobooks and why we encourage listeners to choose other places than Audible to purchase their audiobooks.
 
In entertainment news, we really enjoyed the new season of The Crown, even though we know to take it with a big grain of salt. We also really loved The Queen’s Gambit.
