Romance Genre Favorites to Read and Write #MFRWauthor #Bloghop

Image
Hi! Welcome to Week 17 of the MFRW Author Blog's 52-Week Blog Challenge . This week's topic of discussion is: Favorite Romance Genre to Read or Write To Read I love to read a variety of Romance novel genres as long as they are entertaining, thoughtful, and have a REAL romance to the story. I enjoy the escapism involved with paranormal and fantasy, and I like the world-building aspect of Science Fiction romance. But, my very favorite sub-genre of Romance is Historical, though I can't quite commit to one historical time period over another. I lean towards Regency, but Victorian, Highlander, and Medieval romance are great as well if the above-mentioned aspects are there, that is. If the historical content is there and written in a way that educates/informs, and if the plot isn't in a saturated context (reads like a hundred other such novels), and if there actually IS a romance involved, then I am going to enjoy every second of that read. Sadly, thi

Instead, she sends him on a complicated rescue mission to save three abandoned children. And in a cruel twist, he's given the perfect woman to protect

Pets & Friends, Yes! #MFRWauthor #Bloghop

Hi, there! This is Week 16 of the MFRW Author Blogs 52-Week Blog Challenge , and this week's topic is: Family, Friends, and Pets I've Written Into My Books. My immediate response is NONE, but something tells me I included my first dog in my first novel, and it probably sounds even worse that I don't remember, right? I know it is a dog that finally brings my H & h together near the ending, but I don't recall if I used Yukon or just a random doggy to do the job. Elelur.com Anyway, it isn't that I don't like the idea of using people I know and inserting them into my stories. For me, it just isn't Romance-inducing to think about Family, if that makes any sense to you dear readers. Thinking about my mom or dad while writing a Romance novel is counter-productive... the same way thinking about either one of them during sex would be. Right? However, and more and more, I've come to like the idea of slipping myself or someone I&
