I've recently reviewed several self-published romance novels and while it's not a genre I usually read, they've given me an idea that makes me a bit giddy. Wondering what y'all think of it and if you know of any books like it (and if you have any more ideas for me!) My idea is to write a romance novel where all the usual components are tossed on their heads, kind of a parody of romance novels (no insult intended to those who write real romance novels. This will be more a parody of those not-so-well-done romance novels). You know, start off with the bride getting stood up at the altar but instead of the expected happily ever after ending, at the end she gets stood up at the altar again. And switch things around where the guy is "headstrong," "fiery," and all those other adjectives that usually belong to the gal that are kinda like aw, how cute, he thinks for himself or like you'd say about a dog. Make her be the alpha whereas he remains stingy about giving up his prized virginity. Also, instead of them both being drop dead gorgeous, make them a little repulsive. So, is that as funny as I think it is or just stupid? (It's okay, you can tell me. Really!) Anyone got any more ideas for me?
