With the sniggering title “Textually Promiscuous”, Publishers Weekly takes an inside look at romances and the romance community. While the title is rude, the contents are mostly positive with a focus on the diversity (not ethnic but theme) of the genre. While paranormal or otherworldly romances are popular, it appears that the historical is not down and out but never even suffered a lapse.
I was surprised to see that PW made a couple of big errors. First, it referred to JR Ward’s Lover Enshrined as being released in January 2008 when the publication date has actually been moved back to June of 2008. (As an aside, this is my least favorite Ward cover). Second, in referring to online communities, it points to Romancing the Blog, but gets the web address wrong identifying it as romancingthe-blog.com instead of romancingtheblog.com. That sucks for RTB.
In any event, it is definitely worth a read.
