Author Alexandra Vasti, a Pod Exclusive



Today, we have Becca’s chat with author Alexandra Vasti, whose debut novel, Ne’er Duke Well, is a delightfully steamy regency romp in which a rakish Duke with radical politics in need of a respectable wife hires a seemingly proper matchmaker who secretly runs an erotic circulating library. Hijinks ensue. It’s out July 23rd.

Alexandra talks about: Her long family history of romance reading and her long personal history as a writer; what is so delightful about historical romance; the genesis of her viral newsletter novella series, The Halifax Hellions; her 0-60 journey on social media; feeling like her voice didn’t fit in with what was expected of her at her creative writing MFA program; the fun of nerding out about historical English; what’s next from her; and, of course, she shares some books she’s loved recently.
