Pre-Pub Alert: Calling all Romance Readers


Alright, I admit it...hi, my name is Joni and I am addicted to romance  books. There is just something about this genre that speaks to me. I fly through these books, so it's great that I have a library card to save me money. The average romance paperback can run between $4.99-$7.99 per book, plus tax. With the money I save, I can buy the necessities: shoes and chocolate. The romance categories are endless: inspirational, contemporary, romantic suspense, mystery, paranormal, historical and so many more. The best part, for me is the happy ending. The couple's journey towards each other is met with interesting secondary characters, plot twists and sometimes evil villians. But, at last, true love conquers all! So, what's your favorite genre?
