In this episode:Kathy Otten started writing stories when she was very small, but it wasn't until she became a mum and was nursing her children in the middle of the night that she discovered Harlequin romance books.She tried writing her own, but discovered it was harder than she thought.So, undaunted, she started taking classes and workshops, and kept on writing and little by little overtime she improved and started publishing short stories.It was her father who introduced her to the great Westerns writers, like Louis Lamour and Zane Grey, and it was this that cemented her love of historical romance.But she doesn't write only American West stories. Kathy Otten told me she sees the characters first and then follows the story, and one of her books is set in WWII.I ask Kathy about her working schedule and she explains she's a teaching assistant and so her writing must work around that.But in an ideal world, she works on her own fiction and research in the morning, and in the afternoon she works on her client's pages, for Kathy Otten is also a book coach.Pennwriters Inc is a writing group that started in Pennsylvania, USA but now is across many states. The organisation, and in particular their critique group, helped Kathy focus on areas of her work that needed help. Members read her work, recommended books and workshops and enabled Kathy to continue working on her craft in a supportive way.She tells me what she recommends you look for in a critique group and emphasises that the focus should be on the writing, not the person.As a way of paying forward the help she's received, Kathy now teaches writing to others and has held a lot of workshops for Pennwriters Inc conferences, her chapter of the RWA and Savvy Authors.Latterly she's become an accredited book coach and uses her skills to even greater effect by working closely with writers on their manuscripts over a longer period of time.The coaching, Kathy says, comes in two forms. It's either book coaching or author coaching. Both need help at different times of the process, and certainly that has been my own experience of both coaching and being coached!We talk about writer's block, what it is and how you can move past it. Often the problem lies with the plot or the character and once those issues are resolved, the rest falls into place.This is something Kathy can help with in her coaching role.We finish our conversation with Kathy telling me what she's working on at the moment and where you can find out more about her books and her coaching.

Trailblazer episodes continue this week with EE Ottoman, the first out trans author of romance novels. EE joins us to talk about his journey into romance, about the evolution of trans romance novels, and about the importance of representation in romance. This is a fascinating conversation, and we're so grateful to EE for joining us to tell his story, and the story of trans romance to date. An important note: While books by LGBTQ+ authors have been targeted by book bans across the country for decades, the recent bans on books and language around queerness in schools and public spaces make this issue even more pressing. This episode was recorded in the fall of 2021, which is why this specific issue is not a part of our discussion. Thanks to Kelly Cain, author of An Acquired Taste, and Ava Wixx, author of Virtual Reality Bites, for sponsoring the episode.Our next read along is Julie James's Something About You. Get it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple Books, Kobo, or at your local bookstore.Show NotesWelcome EE Ottoman, a romance trailblazer for being the first trans writer to write romance with trans characters. You can watch the RWA video of romance firsts here. People and publishers mentioned: Less Than 3 Press; We discussed the shifting landscape of LGBTQ bookstores during our trailblazer interview with Radclyffe and Oprah daily has an extensive list of LGBTQ bookstores searchable by state. The zine bookstore in Chicago is called Quimby's. EE Ottoman mentioned authors KJ Charles and May Peterson as being especially supportive on his journey through romance, and notes that Carina Press has been several trans romance titles. Books with queer characters continue to be the target of book banning across the country, and books with trans characters are the most likely to be targeted.

Email us at ragingromantics@nopl.org with your best guess!Jackie's proposed retelling schema:Original talesThese may not be the very first instance of the tale/trope/motif, but they are often accredited as being the source of inspiration for derivative worksRetellingsa derivative work where an author takes a classic story, and reworks the characters, plot, setting/situation, in a new way, thus creating a completely new versino of the originalWill often claim direct influence from the original tale by keeping the characters names/plot points/other identifiable fixturesHomageA derivative work that shows respect or attests to the worth or influence of another, original work. They may retain the names or the plot arc, or they may not. However they still claim influence from the original story.Rip-offDerivative works that pay no deference to original work.

It's also doing well and readers are liking it...until Cain's readers start gettng into it and recognizing a llot of similarities and tropes and plot lines when comparing Ellis' book to Cain'sCain goes forth and accuses Ellis of plagiarizing (similar to Serruya/Milan) and a long legal proceeding beginsAfter Cain accuses Ellis, Blushing Books issues DMCA's against Ellis, and all of Ellis' work is withdrawn; Ellis files counternotices, and after a few months her works are resorted; THEN Cain's lawyer's issue threatening letters promising legal action is Ellis doesn't take her work back down. Ellis does not do this, and sues Cain first.In late 2018 Quill Ink files against Blushing Books/Cain in the state of Oklahoma (even though BB/Cain have no relation to that state but is where Ellis' distributor is based); Cain asks for this to be dismissed since she has no business in that state, and after she swears to the judge that she had nothing to do with the hreatening letter sent by her lawyer to Ellis, Cain is dismissed from the OK caseSo Ellis sues Cain in VirginiaThe battle between Quill and BB continues, and Quill's lawyers, in the process of obtaining all the necessary documentation to create a fair case, obtain the correspondence between Cain and BB, which reveals Cain had been the one to pursue the takedown notices, DMCA, and copyright filings...in opposition to her sworn affidavit that she had nothing to do with the whole business (and what she's been posting on her personal social media). Furthermore, Cain has no copyrights filed on her works...In light of this, Ellis and Quill file a motion to judge Cain guilty for civil contempt, perjury and to dismiss this case. Three days later Blushing offers a complete settlement, says Ellis did NOT plagiarize and dismissed the case. Ellis was not awarded any money from her suit because she ran out of funds and her lawyer left before she could fully pursue the case.RWA vs. MilanThe Romance Writer's of America (RWA) is a trade organization for romance writers and was founded by Vivian Stephens and Rita Clay in 1980 who had hoped that RWA would be a professional organization that would help promote, advance and protect romance authorsIn 2018 Courtney Milan was appointed to Chair of the Ethics Board in 2018August 2019 RWA President-Elect Carolyn Jewell tweets about blocking a problematic author they had been in business with; smart people soon realize that this was Sue Grimshaw, former editor and romance buyer for Borders bookstore. Grimshaw's boss and friend Suzan Tisdale, owner of Glenfinnan Publishing, comes out and says that this is nonsense, and Grimshaw " is no more a racist or bigot than I am."Twitter isn't happy (is it ever?), and Milan joins in on the drama session, and rips apart the 1999 book Somewhere Lies the Moon by Kathryn Lynn Davis and its portrayal of half-Chinese women (Milan is half-Chinese herself); there's fallout from this whole situation with Davis claims that she lost her contract, and Tisdale claims that she's having a hard time finding anyone who will work with her now. Tisdale files a complaint against Milan, accusing Milan of harassing behavior, bullying, threatening her career and her business, and threatens legal action if the RWA does not do something about Milan and Milan's social mediaMilan is asked to step down as Chair and she does, although she's upset due to the unclear policies in RWA's bylaws concerning social media practicesThe complaints against Milan are brought to an entirely new Committee Panel, things get weird, people keep recusing themselves, and when the panel finally meets to come to a decision on November 19, 2019, they decide to censure Milan, suspend her membership for one year and put a lifetime ban on ever holding leadership positions again. The Panel's decision is sent to the RWA Board on December 17 but it's lacking a LOT of evidence...including Milan's own statements! Despite the Board asking the Panel for more information and documentation, the Panel (and the Panel's lead, new President Elect Damon Suede) refuse to present more information, saying that the Board just needs to trust the Panel...Then Social Media gets ahold of everything...and THINGS BLOW UPOn Christmas Eve there's an emergency Board meeting and they vote to immediately rescind the ruling against MilanThat's the end of the Milan dispute...but RWA continues to be in hot water. People are withdrawing memberships, authors are pulling books from nominations, agents are refusing to work with RWA, Suede is catching heat for falsifying claims and accreditations, publishers pull out of conventions, and over 3000 members leave. Suede ends up withdrawing from his position, Davis and Tisdale say they only wanted an apology, and RWA unveils a new award in honor of Vivian Stephens in place of the RITA award annnnnd that's...sort of where we're left off at.Books/authors we mention:Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuireBorn to Be Bound by Addison CaineCrave to Conquer by Zoey EllisKennedy RyanJamie McGuireLinks:Maguire/Krumble/Beautiful Disaster"Roger Kumble Movie ‘Beautiful Disaster' Sets Dylan Sprouse, Virginia Gardner & More" (D'Allessandro, 2021)"Racist Jamie McGuire Dragged Again Upon News of Romance Book Adaptation" (Shotwell, 2021)"Jamie McGuire's 'Problematic' Past Turns Fangs Against Beautiful Disaster" (Krishnamurphy, 2021)"What's the Deal with...Jamie McGuire" (Bec&Books, 2020)"Beautiful Disaster Criticised by Fans for Jamie McGuire's Controversial Past" (Sonia, 2021)"Author Jamie McGuire dropped by agency after engaging with Proud Boys and Nazis" (HorrorMaven, 2020)Omegaverse"Copyright: The alpha and the Omega(verse)" (Whipple, 2019a)"Not Walking Away From Omegaverse" (Whipple, 2019b)"The DMCA Is Not a Weapon for Great Justice" (Whipple, 2021)Case 5:18-cv-00920-G Document 6-14 Filed 10/17/18 - Blushing Books emails courtesy Whipple"Into The Omegaverse: How a Fanfic Trope Landed in Federal Court" (Youtube, Ellis, 2020a)"Eyes Wide Open" (Bailey, 2020)"Addison Cain's lawyer e-mailed me, and it only got worse from there" (Youtube, Ellis, 2020b)Courtney Milan Twitter thread re:CainRWA Ethics complaint against Milan by Cain re:Milan's "lack of support""A Feud in Wolf-Kink Erotica Raises a Deep Legal Question" (Alter, 2020)"Drama in the Omegaverse" (Golden Angel, 2019)Ellis' lawyers counternotices against Cain"Join The Fan Fiction Deep State And Watch This Latest Video That Addison Cain Really Doesn't Want You To See" (TechDirt, 2020) Quill Ink Books Limited v. ABCD Graphics and Design Inc (5:18-cv-00920)"Omegaverse Lawsuit" (Ellis, 2018)Meredith, Empress of the Sock Puppet Army's review of Crave to Conquer | Goodreads"Discussion of Addison Cain's Alpha Claim and Zoey Ellis's Myth of Omega" (Busse, 2018)"Just Keep Breathing With Me" - POSSIBLE FIRST OMEGAVERSE by Tebtosca (2011)All Lawyers are Bastards Podcast: There Will Be KnotsRWA/Milan"The Implosion of the RWA" (Ryan, 2019)"Romance is publishing's most lucrative genre.

We are delighted to be speaking to an amazing leader in our industry today! Carl Winston is the Founding Director of the Payne School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at San Diego State University and acts as Senior Advisor to the Caspian Agency. Carl enjoys volunteering and educating people in the industry. He is a thought leader who loves to challenge traditional ways of thinking.  In this episode, Carl shares his story and talks about what he has learned throughout his career. We also have an edgy and stimulating discussion about the value of COVID, the future of the meetings and events industry, allyship, and the importance of life-long learning. We hope you enjoy listening to our thought-provoking conversation with Carl Winston today! Carl Winston's bio: Carl Winston has over 35 years of experience in a variety of senior executive-level hospitality, event, and tourism industry positions in academia and the “real world.”  He is the founding Director of the L. Robert Payne School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at San Diego State University. Launched in 2001, the School has earned a global reputation for its innovations, rigor, relevance, and near-perfect placement rate for graduates.   Winston acts as a Senior Advisor to Caspian Agency. In that role, he helps Caspian clients clarify their strategic goals and adapt to the rapidly changing methods for event production.   He also owns Real World Academics, a firm that conducts projects from economic impact studies to acquisition and development for small companies and large, including Disney, Marriott, and Four Seasons. RWA also provides Asset Management services to hotel owners. He served on MPI's International Board of Directors for seven years and is the creator of the groundbreaking Master's Degree in Meeting and Event Management in partnership with MPI Global. Carl was named one of The Top 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry by Successful Meetings in 2018 and one of the Top 500 Event Producers by BizBash in 2018.  He has received numerous other industry accolades and is a sitting member of the Editorial Content Board for Smart Meetings Magazine.  He was also the founding Managing Director of the non-profit China Hospitality Education Initiative (CHEI). CHEI was launched in 2013 and supported more nearly 400 colleges and universities with 400,000 students by 2020. Before moving into academia, he had run hundreds of hotels and restaurants throughout the U.S. and Canada. He also ran a chain of small theme parks and started his professional career in public accounting. Carl Winston has been involved with more than 30 local, regional, and international industry associations and groups where he has served in leadership positions and Boards of Directors. His education includes a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California, San Diego, and a Master's of Professional Studies in Hotel Administration, Cornell University. Carl's story When Carl asked for a car at the age of fifteen, his mom suggested that he work as a dishwasher in the restaurant she worked in, to earn the money he needed. After a while, he told his mom that he would rather be a Vice President than a dishwasher. In fact, he wanted to be a Vice President by the time he was thirty! Studies After high school, Carl applied to Cornell University but got turned down. So he went to Community College instead to do hospitality studies. After completing his studies at Community College, he applied to Cornell University as a transfer student and got rejected again. So he went to the University of California in San Diego and received a degree in Sociology and Economics. After a while, he applied to go to Grad School at Cornell University and finally got accepted!  Life-changing Going to Cornell was life-changing for Carl because he learned about networking and how to think in creative and strategic ways.  Hotel financing After university, he moved to Los Angeles, California. He worked in hotel financing, feasibility, and appraisals for five years before moving back to San Diego. A great career He had a great career. He worked his way up to manager before he was thirty years old. Then he quit, started working in a hotel company for some of his clients, and became VP of Operations before turning thirty! The company had thirteen properties, and within five years, they grew the company to 125 hotels!  Focused on success Carl was not a nice person back then because he was way too focused on success. He was tough, hard-driving, results-driven, and unfriendly.  Changing Several bad exits and getting fired twice were humbling experiences for Carl and helped him grow up, change, and become a better person. Business failure Carl feels that the time he spent working for a repo company helped him become an expert on business failure. Hospitality school Being asked to be on the advisory board of a new hospitality school and the years he spent helping build the curriculum softened Carl into becoming a nicer person. It also helped him to understand the benefits of giving back rather than taking.  The largest school network in the industry Carl built a school network in China that included 400 schools with 400,000 students in Hospitality and Event Management just before the coronavirus pandemic. It was an initiative funded by the Marriott Family Foundation. How COVID was the best thing Carl believes that COVID was the best thing ever for meetings professionals because it froze the industry. It resulted in people doing things differently. They started asking the right questions, wanting the reason and purpose for the meetings, and asking what the value-add for the meetings would be.  Undervalued and misunderstood Meeting professionals across the world are undervalued and misunderstood. People tend to underestimate all the work and planning that goes into creating a meeting or event. Carl feels that on the other side of COVID, meeting professionals will be better understood, and their value proposition will be more solid. Carl Winston's advice for hoteliers Hoteliers should start figuring out how to run hybrid meetings. Carl asserts that they need to start investing in technology to allow people to watch the meeting sessions from the safety of their hotel rooms or around the pool on their iPads. Allyship  We won't get anywhere if the only people who feel passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion are the minorities. Carl has been thinking of ways for minorities to become more effective allies. He has also been getting his team to help him get better at practicing diversity and inclusion.  Carl Winston on life-long learning We should never stop educating ourselves. Carl encourages you to keep on reinventing yourself and learning new things. Connect with Eric On LinkedIn On Facebook On Instagram On Website Connect with Carl On LinkedIn
