Hi, In another thread Mamamaia wrote, "if you're seeking perfection of plot and print, the romance market is the last place you should be looking... they're not considered a 'pulp mill' for nothing..." Okay, so you're saying that publishers have decided that the romance genre doesn't have to live up to the same standards of writing as other fiction? This is sad, I hope there are some exceptions. I am finishing a book that seems to fit most closely into the paranormal romance niche. I suppose I can try calling it 'paranormal fiction'. But if I call my book romance, I can expect to be looked at differently by a prospective agent, than if I had written a mainstream novel? If this is true, then maybe we are getting the kind of romances that the publishers think we want?
