Hook Them When They're Young!
Romance comprises half of the paperback book market. Mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, mainstream fiction, etc. - that's the other half. Readers love romance!
Why? MUST YOU EVEN ASK? What's life without love? But in case you feel you've somehow been manipulated into liking romance stories, into expecting a muscular, dashing hero to swoop a scantily-clad heroine into his arms. . . um, maybe you have.
See any similarities?
(The author of this book, Cheryl Ann Smith, is a good friend of mine, so I don't think she'll mind this free advertisement. And remember, it's the publishers who pick the covers, not the authors!)
