#22 Vampires need not apply

July 16, 2021

Welcome back to the land of paranormal romancelandia! Jen and Jackie are diving right on in with a discussion of two paranormal romance books, one an old favorite, and one newer that's...not really a favorite. Have we finally found an original romance read that is still good to read today?! What are the differences between indie published books and traditionally published? And what do you think- will physical books ever be obsolete? Don't forget, you can always emails us at RagingRomantics@gmail.com or find Jackie on TikTok and instagram @Jackie_Recommends ! Thank you to everyone for tuning in. We love you all!


  • Indie Publishing - a way of publishing literary works that does not involve going through traditional publishing houses; one of the more popular methods is through Kindle Unlimited

  • Macedon/Macedonia - the empire of historic Macedonia occupies the region of northern Greece and the Balkan peninsula, not Turkey as Jackie mistakenly said in the episode. Read this article on History.com for more information!

  • Deus Ex Machina - an unexpected power or event saving a seemingly hopeless situation, especially as a contrived plot device in a play or novel.

  • Priapus - the Roman god of vegetable gardens and fertility that Jen keeps purposefully mispronouncing

  • Reverse Harem - A trope that consists of one female protagonist and three or more male love interests.
