    Hi. I'm a Fiction/Romance Writer

    who was recently published. I also LOVE to read romance :) What was the last book you read? What was it about and why'd you like it? I honestly can't remember my last because I spend my time writing nowadays, but, I've always been a huge fan of Elizabeth Chandler's "Kissed by An...

    My favorite book publishing agencies are Simon

    & Schuster, Hyperion, Scholastic, Harlequin and Disney. I LOVE when sequels are made by different authors each with a different story but yet somehow the stories are all totally connected together in some way. One such is a series of stories in one book called Men At Work by...

    I love reading and writing romance novels.

    I hate reading cliche story lines, though. Once I get my own romance novel published on Amazon, I hope people will read it to let me know if they liked it. I'm an undiscovered writer trying to find other people who like romance novels. What do you like to see in a romance...

    There is one I love reading

    and I actually love that it is partly autobiographical on the author's part. The author and her husband have completely opposite views in politicizing religious and medicinal beliefs. Due to highly negative publicity and feelings these views have online and offline, I will not...

    Waking Up With The Duke

    I just read this novel by Lorraine Heath -- wow, it was great! Usually I read contemporaries, so I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. The plot was actually believable and the characters were extremely well-crafted. I'm definitely going to be reading more of Heath's novels...

    This is the only genre I love.

    It enriches my life, it makes me react the way I don't in reality and I like it. I feel the pain in the chest for a heart breaking scene, shed tears when lovers parted. For some reason or the other, I'm afraid to tell people around me what genre I read :(

    Are You A Closet Romance Reader?

    I'm a Closet Romantic

    The few people who know that I read romance novels do not actually believe me at first. Then I show them the stacks of books I have out from the library waiting to be read. I never quite catch up, as I always check out more books than I return.

    Nobody can touch Jane Austen

    for a good romance. She has everything except sex. I tried to emulate some of her style when I wrote my romance book 'The Handfasters' but I did not come close: how can ordinary people even touch genius? Any other Austen fans here?
