Have I mentioned that, on my journey to become a successful romance writer, I have a Giant Road Block? Yep. I put it there myself. Good thinking, huh?
My Giant Road Block is this. I write Sweet Romance. As in, if one were rating it, one would probably use “G.” Occasionally perhaps “PG.” My aim is to write beautiful love stories with such emotional depth that the reader doesn’t care whether or not there is a fully described love scene.
Surprisingly, this is not a large portion of romance market share. Go figure.
I could get rid of the Giant Road Block by learning to write hotter. It’s been suggested to me several times that I spice it up, and maybe I will have to do that. Others have said I should be true to myself, and write what I love. Thus far that’s what I’m doing.
Still, the constant flashing glare is a bit obnoxious…
I'm putting up a new fun poll today about romance novel heat preference. Please feel free to be brutally honest.
