Jeff and Will kick off the show wishing well all the listeners who endured Winter Storm Jonas over the past weekend.

Jeff honored the 20th Anniversary of the musical Rent, his favorite musical ever, which opened at New York Theatre Workshop on January 25, 1996. The guys discussed the new series on BBC America, London Spy. They also gave a shoutout to The Satyrsphere podcast, which gave BGFP a mention in its most recent episode.

Answers to last week's question of the week were read out and then Jeff and Will welcomed author Jordan Nasser to the show. Jordan talked about his debut novels, Home is a Fire and The Fire Went Wild along with what his initial foray into publishing was like and what his future plans are. Jordan asked the Question of the Week: "How do the seasons affect your reading--the amount of reading and the kinds of books you're reading?"

After the interview Jeff & Will answer that question and let listeners know that if they answer the question in the comments on the website they'll be entered into a giveaway that Jordan's sponsoring for signed paperback copies of his two books.

The Question of the Week can be answered at BigGayFictionPodcast.com.

*Giveaway rules: To be eligible to win the signed paperback copies of Jordan's two books you must answer the Question of the Week ("How do the seasons affect your reading--the amount of reading and the kinds of books you're reading?") in the comments section on this episode's page at BigGayFictionPodcast.com. Only one answer per email address. Answers must be on the website by Saturday, January 30 at 11:59pm PT. We are not responsible for any issues that may cause an answer to not appear on the website. We'll announce the winner from the random drawing on next week's episode.

Jeff & Will quickly recap last week, including Jeff's finished first draft and what he's working on next.

Sara York is this week's guest and she talks about her most recent release, Holiday Emergencies (part of the Love's First Response series), as well as the other projects she's working on for 2016. Other topics include the trademarks of a Sara York book, what her writing process is, how she decides to take one of her books to audio, and why she's doing burpees at home.

Sara answers last week's question about 2016 reading goals and asks this week's: "Is there a series from your favorite author that you’d like to see continue?”

Jeff & Will wrap up the episode by answering that question.

Jeff and Will welcome everyone to 2016 to kick off the first episode of the new year. There was a lot to recap for the week. Jeff submitted Make the Right Choice on December 30 and it will publish in February. The guys also talk about why the title changed from Breakaway & Score.

Jeff mentions that the 2015 Top Ten Gay Romance anthology released from JMS Books with his story Hat Trick Overtime: Summer Camp was included. Jeff also talks about the Goodreads M/M Romance Readers Choice Awards Hat Trick 3: Penalty Shot was nominated for and Will joins in for a discussion of how the voting works. Prism Book Alliance gets a birthday shoutout and Jeff thanks Brandilyn for calling out the Hat Trick trilogy as one of the best she's read in the two years of reviewing for the site.

The multi-author giveaway to support Eric Arvin's is discussed so listeners can add their donations and be in the raffle for great prizes. Dreampsinner's Dreamspun Desires paperbacks arrived in the mail this week and are shown off. Star WarsThe Force Awakens is praised in a spoiler-free way. Last week's Question of the Week responses were also read (you can see all the responses on the shownotes page).

The guys recapped 2015 and talked about goals/plans for 2016. Will talked at length about how he was approaching 2016 after coming off a bad 2015. Will's approach to the year is based on things he's learned from Todd Herman. Jeff also reviews his 2015 and lays out some of his goals for the new year.

The show wraps up with the Question of the Week: "Do you set reading goals? If so, what are your goals for 2016?" Jeff and Will give their answers in the episode and hope you'll send in yours.
