Audiobook Lovin' 2020 Presents: Julia Whelan Special Guest Post & Giveaway

One of my all time favorite narrators is Julia Whelan and when she released her first book, My Oxford Year, I LOVED IT! So when Julia shared that she had an idea for this year's Audiobook Lovin' my answer was of course "What ever you want to do!".

Julia asked her friend and author Brittany Cavallaro to join her to discuss the link between women's fictions and romance and why it doesn't get the respect it deserves.
