The Bad Reputation of Romance Novels

Love this. Shared by Barbara Vey this week on her blog, I thought it was worth spreading the proverbial love. As an author who writes romance, I get aaall sorts of responses when I share what I do for a living. The range swings from interest, to raised eyebrows, to open distaste. This video, in which Maya Rodale talks about why romance novels have gotten such a bad–and undeserved–rap, was eye-opening even for someone like me who champions the romance genre.

Speaking of Barbara Vey, this week is her 6th anniversary bash, and there will be a TON of prizes given away! I think my author buddy Mary Calmes and I may have thrown a little something into the mix. We’re so sleep deprived I can’t say we recall for sure, but I think so. Anyway, the bash goes on March 4-9, so be sure to stop by and get your party on! There’s gonna be tons of awesomeness to win!
