Watch Me Live Tuesday Night With Felicia Day Talking about Fortune’s Pawn

By Phil Plait

I’m pretty excited to let y’all know that I’ll be a guest on the Vaginal Fantasy Book Club!

Yes, you read that right.

It’s a video hangout/podcast hosted by Felicia Day, Bonnie Burton, Veronica Belmont, and Kiala Kazebee, where they drink wine, talk about a romance-fantasy novel they’ve read, and make dirty jokes. I haven’t met Kiala yet, but I have ridiculous crushes on Felicia, Bonnie, and Veronica (psssst: Don't tell them, because I don't think they know), so when Felicia asked me, the outcome was inevitable.

The book we’re discussing is called Fortune’s Pawn, by Rachel Bach. It’s actually a science-fiction novel, kinda sorta military in nature, about a mercenary named Devi Morris who shoots bad guys. It was a good read, brisk and fun. There is some sciencey stuff in it, which, I imagine, is why Felicia asked me in; I’m not usually much of a romance novel kinda guy, unless spaceships or aliens are involved.

The live hangout will be at 7 PT today, Tuesday, March 31 (02:00 UTC Wednesday morning). Assuming the software gods smile, the hangout will be embedded below so you can watch it live here. I expect there will be some amount of swearing and drinking (not necessarily in that order), and some sexy subjects discussed, so this'll be NSFW. Fairly warned be ye, says I.

If not, then try the Vaginal Fantasy playlist at YouTube, or on the Vaginal Fantasy site. They also have a group on Goodreads, and of course they’re on Twitter.

This’ll be fun. I don’t get to let loose very often, and I really have a lot of respect and love for these women. I hope you'll join in.
