Jezebel: A Guide to DOWNTON ABBEY SLASH FICTION
I was horrified when I began watching Season 3 of DTA and found it to be… well… romantically boring. Thus, I compiled this overview of some of the hottest Downton Abbey fanfic out there which dares to go hot and heavy with the folks both upstairs AND downstairs at the Abbey. And then it was published on one of my favourite lady blogs and my heart exploded and then instantly repaired itself and then exploded again.
Bitch Magazine Guest Blog: RetroPop
An eight-week-long guest blog bringing together today’s lady-driven Top 40 hits with great blasts from the female literary canon. Finally, a place to discuss similarities between Carly Rae Jepsen and Jane Austen!
“I Thought I Could Escape to a Tropical Island. I Was Wrong”: In which I describe the price of being a happily unmarried globetrotting lady.
“Why Women Are Always Hungry (And Not Just For Food)”: My EAT IT co-editor and I got some sweet front-page play on the Huffington Post with this opinion piece about our book.
I’m really interested in what Toronto’s Tryst Books is doing — it’s a romance publisher that likes to push boundaries, ask questions, and really create a conversation about women in society through thoughtful blogs (and some fun straight-up lusty lit). I’ve started writing for their blog because its mission overlaps with a lot of stuff I care about and think about, too. My first post is about the legacy of Barbara Cartland, author of 723 romance novels and the world’s all-time best-selling author behind only SHAKESPEARE and Agatha Christie. Whut!
Virginia Woolf Project
Some sassy lady writing/multimedia slideshows on a sassy lady blog based in the United States of America!
