Thanks to Quichepup, we have a very rare event. We have word of the fourth positive press article dealing with romance and romance authors. Between the Sudbury Star, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the USA Today, the genre is having a lovely press fiesta.
And hello, Oklahoma! There’s more!
But wait, there’s more! PC Cast and Merline Lovelace join Monroe and Showalter in a list of what they consider the “novels you don’t want to miss and the best movie or TV kiss.”
You know, I have often heard romance authors quietly bemoaning the silly and altogether ridiculous questions they are asked come Valentine’s Day, and I have to say – this year has been entirely different with the media coverage. Well played, Oklahoma. My thoughts are with you guys.
One more thing: so many of you have sent me to the link to this week’s Mallard Fillmore comic about Diana Gabaldon. While I wish the tone wasn’t so sniffy in the tired differentiation of Gabaldon from the plebian romance masses, I will say this – damn skippy Mr. Duck. Never mock a woman’s recreational reading.
