“You’re only a man! You’ve not our gifts! I can tell you! Why, a woman can think of a hundred different things at once, all of them contradictory!”
― Georgette Heyer, Powder and Patch
There’s been a LOT on the go at Fable Gazers, and we wanted to share some of our updates with you, lest you think all we do is sit around talking about money and sex (granted, we do that a lot too 😉 )…
Joanne Bloody Harris
We’re hard at work prepping our second series of narrative podcasts, Heyer Today, focusing on the fabulous author Georgette Heyer who we personally feel has not had enough time in the spotlight (we’re working on this!). You might have heard us mention – oh just once or twice – that one of our guests on Heyer Today is Stephen Fry (yes, THAT Stephen Fry!), who is a huge GH fan. Well guess who else is a GH fan, and who Sara-Mae got to interview this week? Joanne Bloody* Harris, most well known for her book Chocolat (made into a sumptuous movie with Juliette Binoche, Johnny Depp, and Alfred Molina).
We can’t wait to share this unique podcast series with you when we’re done making it spectacular!
Bibi (MEEP!**) Lynch
Look, we won’t even pretend to #humblebrag – we’re going to straight up brag that The Sugar Baby Confessionals, our first podcast series, has been getting some great reviews including from the wonderful writer and broadcaster Bibi Lynch (whose credits include Stella, Shortlist, The Guardian, Elle, Stylist, Marie Claire and Psychologies, Metro, Telegraph Men, Guardian Lifestyle and MSN… just to name a few) and Rob Crossan (travel, lifestyle and disability writer for GQ, Telegraph, Sunday Times, Tatler, Daily Mail,, Country Life, etc.).
Some of the feedback we’ve had is that it’s compelling, “beautifully put together”, intriguing, “off-kilter”, and very candid! (Yes, Sara-Mae might be a little embarrassed that some of her colleagues know a lot more about her, er, grooming routines than they should…)
Episode 6 is almost here, so if you haven’t given it a listen yet, then be sure to subscribe on iTunes and take a listen from the beginning. Not an Apple user? You can also find the podcast on Stitcher, Libsyn, or wherever you like to get your podcasts. It’s also REALLY helpful for us if you rate and review the podcast, as that increases our exposure (so to speak…). You can also help us spread the word by sharing the podcast on your social channels. Every bit helps!
