Tuesday, September 24, 2019
8:30pm - 9:30pm
Webcast Live: The 101: Bow Chicka Wow Wow, or All About Romance Narration (Sponsored by SAG-AFTRA)

Suzanne and PJ welcome Erin Mallon and Andrew Eiden (aka Teddy Hamilton) to the mic to talk (in low, husky voices) all about romance narration. Erin and Andrew are two of the hottest narrators in romance, and they’ll share their steamy secrets of success, including the ins and outs of pseudonyms, and how they approach their affair with Romance. Also making a special guest appearance is Lydia Rella, creator of Aural Fixation! We’ll hear the inside scoop on all the goings on at AF, and what she and her members think makes for a great romance narrator.

Hot giveaways and Q&A will happen live, so come primed to listen in the flesh. It's an episode sure to violate APA policies. ;-)
