After a couple of weeks' break, while Paula was on vacation, we're back (mostly)! With Paula still away (celebrating Thanksgiving), Kyra and Clare discuss National Novel Writing Month, their co-written project, and the the shenanigans they got up to when they saw rock band Fozzy together recently.
We also discuss the I Literary Can't Even Book Awards; which has closed voting on the first round, but will soon be open for second round voting.

You might have noticed we've been a little quiet on the podcast front recently. That's because Paula is on vacation, and both Clare and Kyra have been busy with NaNoWriMo.
We haven't forgotten about the podcast though. We're brainstorming ideas for new episodes, and we're also excited to announce we're hosting the first annual I Literary Can't Even Book Awards.
This is round one, and we invite all of you to add your favourites to the polls!
Every book nominated MUST have been released in 2017.Any that weren't will be removed from the poll.
PLEASE read to check your nomination hasn't already been listed before you add someone new.
Voting will stay open for one week, after which, the top five in each category will move through to the next round, and we will ask you to vote again!
Winners of the final round will be announced on our podcast (Date to be confirmed).
