Monsters meet romance, scary meets sexy—these are just a few of my favorite things. What a joy and an honor it was to get invited to fangirl about the Monster Romance subgenre with Agatha Andrews on the She Wore Black Podcast! We touch a little bit upon the subgenre’s history, as well as a few of the factors that might be contributing to its recent surge in popularity, and we discuss the appeal of monsters before rounding off the conversation with a handful of recommendations. (I could have kept going on and on, but we’d need a mini series for that).
I also got to tease my monster and paranormal romance books: GIVEN TO THE GHOUL (out now) and CALLED TO THE DEEP (coming this fall).
The episode is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts. Listen in and join the fun!
A parting note.
I would be remiss if I didn’t share that this was my very first podcast guest appearance, and wow, what an unforgettable experience. I was wicked nervous about recording, but Agatha is such a lovely person and a complete pro. Seriously, I think she could narrate for Masterpiece Theater, her speaking style is so smooth and effortless.
I was a listener before I came on the show, and I just love the podcast’s discussions of gothic and horror media, but I especially adore it when the host dives into those genres’ intersections with romance. And she does so quite regularly! It is so clear that Agatha is a voracious and knowledgeable consumer of all three genres, and I appreciate that so much.
If you’re a fan of gothic, horror, or mystery, I encourage you to subscribe and follow She Wore Black Podcast.
