Howdy, hello, and salutations! Welcome to the inaugural episode of Not Now, I’m Reading, your brand new one-stop spot for all things genre related!
Once a week, we (Chelsea and Kay) get together to discuss all different sorts of genre reads, fan fiction and pop culture, and we want you to join us!
From comics to romance, through science-fiction, young adult, crime or fantasy – pretty much anything that can be classed as genre fiction goes, as long as it’s something we can gush about. We always aim to be critical readers but we want this show to be a space for positivity and celebrating fiction that gets things right. No book is perfect, but there are some damn good ones, and we want to be reading them.
So, with that little introduction over, on to the episode!
