We love surrounding ourselves with smart, funny women—especially in the recording booth. This episode, author Lyssa Kay Adams talks about changing careers and how being a romance novelist and feminist can exist in the same space. She's breaking the patriarchy and helping change the culture of romance, one chapter at a time.
If you want something different in life, change it—whether it's your career or the patriarchy. Or if you're our guest, author Lyssa Kay Adams, both.
The last couple of years were pretty major for Lyssa. She pitched a story on Twitter as a relatively unknown author, was signed with an agent within two days, received a three-book deal with a publisher, and–oh, yeah–actually wrote the first novel, "The Bromance Book Club." (Not to mention her second novel, "Undercover Bromance," which comes out March 10.) So, yeah—she's been pretty busy.
Lyssa isn't afraid of change. She left her career as a journalist to become published romance novelist, and the risk paid off. Her novel has received numerous accolades and was listed No. 1 on Amazon's "Best Romances of 2019." But how does one navigate so much change in so little time?
This episode, we sit down with Lyssa to discuss her latest novel, the creative process, dealing with major life changes, feminism in the romance genre, and—of course—her dog.
