Being a Romance Author Is Cool

Phyl sent me this picture last week and I meant to blog about it. She said

I've passed this truck a couple of times on the freeway and today saw it parked out in front of Hobby Lobby and managed to snap a picture with my phone camera. It's an ad for a number of local housing developments called Lifestyle Communities which are designed for younger, first-time home buyers. Their ads are meant to appeal to hip, upwardly mobile people. I saw this and thought, it's chic to be an aspiring romance author.

Very cool, no? Thanks Phyl.

She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Being a romance novelist has gotten me featured on several campus publications. I mean I was always a good student, but good students are a dime a dozen, apparently. :-) But a good student who has sold romance novels, well, let’s interview her! :-)
