Jeff shares the news that the first three audiobooks for his "Codename: Winger" young adult series, narrated by Kirt Graves, are now available everywhere.

The hockey romances "Heated Rivalry" and "Role Model," both by Rachel Reid, are reviewed by Jeff before Rachel joins us to talk about the "Game Changers" series. She shares what got her started writing the series, how she decides the type of guy to pair her hockey players with, and what's still to come for the next book in the series. Rachel also discusses how writing about hockey when she was 12 set her on the path to becoming the author she is today. We also get some excellent book recs too.

Author TJ Klune joins us to talk about "Flash Fire," the sequel to his YA superhero story "The Extraordinaries." TJ discusses the new characters, how Nick has to deal with changing perceptions about his father, and the importance of queer history and sex positivity within the book. He also talks about "Under the Whispering Door," the second book in what he calls his Unofficial Kindness Trilogy. Here the conversation shifts to look at writing a book about grief that is also infused with kindness and humor.

TJ also provides some hints about next year's "Tales from Verania" sequel and book three of "Extraordinaries." Plus he recommends some books that he thinks everyone should have on their reading list.
