Podcast Episode #31: LoveYA at BWF 2015

September 9, 2015 Giveaways, Podcast 0



Welcome to the thirty-first episode of the Tea in the Treetops podcast hosted by Philippa and Angelya.

Over the weekend of 5-6 September, we went to several sessions for the Brisbane Writers Festival. This episode is a recap of those sessions, including several Aussie authors and the much-anticipated Cassandra Clare and Holly Black. We apologise for the mixed sound quality – it was all recorded in various library locations and, er… a beer garden. This episode was recorded on September 5th, 2015.

Don’t forget to click through to enter our giveaway to win a signed copy of The Iron Trial by Cassie and Holly! It’s open to Aussie listeners only though, sorry.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear your feedback – anything you would like us to talk about in particular? Just let us know!

You can listen to past episodes of the podcast, as well as the various ways to subscribe on the main podcast page.

Our title music is titled Sea of Dreams and has been used with the kind permission of the composer, Bart Stoop. You can hear more of Bart’s beautiful music at facebook.com/BartStoop.
