I won’t point you to any particular blogs, because you likely don’t need the directions. A half dozen topics have ultimately led us to the same point, and boy is that point pointy–a lot of folks think romance fiction is trash.
My question–who cares? Who are you trying to convert? Why? It’s the best selling fiction on the planet, and nothing is likely to change that. Nora Roberts just won an award for writing the best book on the planet.
Why does it sting folks so badly? Because it means what YOU write, what YOU read is garbage? And by extension, does it mean you have bad taste or are a bad person? Do you care? I’m really interested why this seems to touch such a raw nerve.
