South Africa makes its first appearance on the show with author, Elaine Dodge! Jason and Elaine discuss topics like the mushy middle, pantsing the first few chapters, writing in places you've never been, bears, and brains in jars! All this and more before diving into a wonderfully steamy sample chapter from her award-winning book, Harcourt's Mountain!
