“Afternoon Delight:
Why Soaps Still Matter”

Carolyn Hinsey’s Book – in hardcover – is now available here!

“Afternoon Delight” is filled with fascinating anecdotes, celebrity contributions, and insider dish, spelling out the history and importance of soap operas from Irna Phillips’ first radio drama Painted Dreams in 1930 right up to the 17.5 hours of weekly delicious drama airing today.

It’s a celebration of Daytime full of clear, thoughtful reasons why soaps should continue to survive and thrive for another 83 years.

Originally $23.95 on Amazon, we’ve cut $10 off the price, offering the autographed hardcover at just $13.95 (plus shipping).

And, yes – Tainted Dreams and its soap-within-a-soap, Painted Dreams, are an homage to that very first soap.

Let’s hear it for love in the afternoon!
