Episode 111-“Your Genitals Can Talk?”

The Newbie Writers’ Podcast


Co-host: Dionne Lister


So Catharine’s busy enjoying the silly season, and whilst I should be too, I decided to hijack the show completely and have Author, editor and Tweeper Dionne Lister host a show with me. Bound to be fun, and quickly spiraled into talk of her latest creation: Close Call: A Doris & Jemma Vadgeventure

What is a Vadgeventure you ask? Let’s think about it for a moment.

Dionne is a trendsetter for Newbie Writers. First guest to drop an F-Bomb on our show and this time around, the first conversation about vagina’s. That’s right, we have the vagina talk for most of the show. Are you feeling uncomfortable or intrigued? I’d like your feedback below in the comments section. We discuss how using such terms has increased in awkwardness and how does one market a chick-lit book that isn’t smutty at all? We look at how to conquer writing something outside of your normal genre and defining the line between previous works.

Dionne’s recent release in The Circle of Talia Series: e-book a-time-of-darkness-front-cover

Make sure you check this book out. The first one was featured twice on Itunes and quoted as: “Named one of 10 emerging fantasy authors you MUST read”
We also carry on the discussion about book covers and some quick and dirty tips when it comes to publishing in general.



Learn about something new, or do something new. Go home and write about the experience. Or sit right there in the museum or the car wash and write notes about the experience. What did the outing trigger?

Tortured Sentences:

From spam on Catharine’s web site:

 Slurs, stereotypes and violent talk aren welcome on our website.

Keilty favorite: the grilled cheese sandwich with guacamole and applewood bacon from Roxy Gourmet Grilled Cheese.


Word of the week:

From http://wordsmith.org





1. Easily perceived; obvious.
2. Capable of being touched or felt; tangible.
3. Capable of being discerned by touching (as an illness or a disease).


From Latin palapare (to touch, caress), from palpus (palm, stroke, caress). Ultimately from the Indo-European root pal- (to touch, feel, or shake), which also gave us palpitate, feel, and sprachgefuhl. Earliest documented use: 1395.
