USA Today: Printing Romance Positive Articles? HECK YES!

Posted October 13, 2011 to Digital, Media Appearances, Video

USA Today’s Deirdre Donahue did a Q&A with me that allowed me ample opportunity to address and hopefully correct some of the misconceptions about the romance genre, including facts about the books themselves and the women who read and write them. YAY! The article is online and in the print edition, too. Have a look at a PDF Version of the print interview, if you like (700k)

USA Today also has a fantastic new romance blog headed up by author Joyce Lamb that features interviews, reviews and news about new romance novels, and content from fantastic romance bloggers including Mandi from SmexyBooks and other romance writers. SO AWESOME.

Way to go, USA Today. Thanks for helping us spread the word about how powerful and positive romance can be!
