Jess and Trisha discuss plagiarism and Kindle Unlimited stuffing, announce the first read for the When In Romance book club, chat about what they’re reading, and update everyone on the success of the #wheninromance hashtag.

This episode is sponsored by Love You by Stacy Finz.

Also! Go take the Book Riot Fall Reader Survey ASAP because it’s quick and easy and voting is important.


We talked about an “is it or isn’t it” plagiarism situation in the romance world. If you wanna check out a couple of the Twitter threads we talked about, they’re here and here.

We also announced our first books club picks! We’ll discuss Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin on our episode that drops Oct 8, and we’ll discuss Intercepted by Alexa Martin (maybe you’ve heard of it) about 4 weeks after that. So plan to track down both, and huge thanks to everyone who voted!

Books Discussed:

First reading material was fanfic, and Jess was inspired by this tweet from Cat Sebastian

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren

Stripped by Zoey Castile

Treasure by Rebekah Weatherspoon
