In case you haven’t seen it, USA Today ran a fabulous article yesterday on the Romance genre. Balanced, thoughtful, positive. Fabulous. Quoted are Eloisa James, Julia Quinn, and Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, among others. It’s a must-read!
And speaking of must reads, my friend and RWA chaptermate DeAnna Cameron celebrates her very first release day today! The Belly Dancer (Berkley) is historical fiction with, as they say, “strong romantic elements.” Here is the blurb:
At the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, the modern, the exotic, and the ground-breaking collide. When Dora Chambers, an aspiring socialite, is charged with the task of enforcing proper conduct at the Egyptian belly dancing exhibition, she finds herself captivated by these marvelous women. And as her eyes are opened to the world beyond a life of social expectations, she finds the courage to break free and discover the truth about her own heart.
Doesn’t that just sound fascinating? And look at that beautiful cover!
Congratulations, DeAnna – I can’t wait to read the book.
