I was also dissed at a book signing for writing romance.
Also for writing about Texas. Also for writing about cowboys. Also for being traditionally published. It's a sad world that can't just be happy...AND THAT'S WHY I WRITE ROMANCE.
Thanks for this Jeannie Moon.
I was at a big book fair yesterday, and while most people were very nice and supportive, there are always a couple who make snarky comments about romance and romantic women's fiction. I was glad I'd made this handy dandy infographic so they could see exactly what they were dissing.
Romance is the powerhouse of the publishing industry. We keep the lights on.
