If you're a romance reader (and it's likely, given that you're visiting a romance author's blog), you know the drill. You see a headline in the paper or online, or hear a teaser for a news segment on TV, that refers to romance. You're optimistic -- you read romance, after all! -- but inside, you're cringing just a little. How soon before someone references bodice rippers? What condescending, snarky aside will be tossed in first?
That's why it was so refreshing to read this article on Huffington Post about the Princeton romance symposium. Author Joanne Rendell really cuts to the heart of the genre, with nary a condescension in sight. Brava, Ms. Rendell!
So, are there others out there? Have you found a news article or segment that portrays romance in a positive light? Share it in the comments!
