After you read this post, “Attack of the Bodice Ripper,” published on Reading While Black below, I’ll let you decide or give your own take to my question!
Here’s what I do know about the romance genre and industry as a whole:
• Revenue from romance fiction is 1.37 billion dollars and outsells every market category by twenty-six (26%) with the exception of religion/inspirational books
• Romance fiction has the same characteristics as any other fiction novel with one distinction: it centers on the love between two people and provides an optimistic ending. Moreover, the read is fresh, smart, and diverse
Until next time – stay well and be blessed!
