"Romance writers do what they love, and they get paid for it. They hone their craft, like any other writer. They value their work, and they speak with an honest voice, telling the stories that they want to tell. I can’t imagine anything more feminist."

Writing Romance Fiction Is A Feminist Act by Danielle Summers. (via therumpus)

"I believe that the lack of respect for the industry has much more to do with pure sexism than anything else. What could be more frightening to the establishment than an organized group of women with the intelligence and the financial leverage to say what they think? And they think that love wins. How dare they? How terrifying. We must subject them to ridicule."

Hey, romance fans!  I’m giving away paperback copies of my rom-coms THE DIMPLE OF DOOM and THE DIMPLE STRIKES BACK on Goodreads.  The contests end on August 15th.  If you like a dorky heroine who never gives up and a dimpled art thief who ruins lives, then you might dig my books!
