Listen Up: Talking Partnership with the Romance-Novel Experts Who Signed a Sony Deal

Listen Up BY hannah mcintosh 02/25/2019


Today on the pod, Claire and Erica chat with two extraordinary sisters, Leah and Bea Koch, founders of The Ripped Bodice, the only romance-novel bookstore in all of the United States. But they’re up to even more than that—from landing a deal with Sony, to writing a novel, to promoting racial diversity in romance publishing—and manage to make it all happen without ruining family Thanksgiving.

P.S. Speaking of books, pre-order Claire and Erica’s, Work Wife: The Power of Female Friendship to Drive Successful Businesses, today for your very own signed copy!
