Jess and Trisha try to explain the destructive disaster that engulfed RWA, talk about the implications of the organization’s implosion, and discuss 2020 resolutions and romance titles they’re ready for.

Jess did some very thoughtful reflecting on the situation as well.
Romance Sparks Joy created a list of books by underrepresented authors which were withdrawn from the RITA awards (which have now been cancelled).
The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon (Coming June 9th)
Recipe for Persuasion by Sonali Dev (Coming May 26th)
Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert (which we’re discussing on the next episode of WIR!)
