There is lots of buzz out there about how romance writers are treated in certain genres. Appalling and degrading to all the authors out there. It got me to thinking about how I get judged pretty much every time I tell people I’m a published romance novelist.
Some people titter, some people congratulate me, some raise an eyebrow and don’t reply. I’ve had it all over the last 9 years since I was published.
What does it mean? I don’t know but I do know I will NEVER stop doing what I love no matter what anyone thinks. I love what I do, no matter what genre it’s in. I’m proud of what I do.
I write everything from spicy, to erotic to scorching and everything in between. I don’t pick the heat level, it picks me. 🙂 I might decide tomorrow to write a small town sweet romance but I also might decide to write a BDSM vampire historical. You know what? If I did, I’d be proud of what I wrote.
Here I am, flying my flag, loud and proud! Every word I write is a piece of my soul, every book a part of my heart.
So here is a post to bring the good and dispel the bad – I am firm believer that good karma pays it forward out there in the universe. A shout out to every author out there, for all your hard work and your amazing books! Keep on rocking!
