Save The Contemporary

12:01 am • Filed under: Books I Love

I love contemporary romance books – it is definitely my most favorite genre to read (and write!). So when I hear the rumors that contemporary books are on a major decline, no one is buying them (readers and editors/publishers/agents), well that makes me sad.

Thanks to Dear Author and Smart Bitches, they’re out to save the contemporary romance genre by sponsoring a contest! They’re spreading the word about the latest contemporary book by Erin McCarthy, Flat Out Sexy.

Isn’t that cover flat out sex-ay? Ooh yeah – gotta get it! So help spread the contemporary love and enter the contest!

  1. Ooooh, love the cover! I have to admit, I don’t read much ‘contemporary’ unless it also falls under the realm of paranormal as well. I just prefer historicals. It’s my escape!

    But as a writer, it’s definitely more fun to write something contemporary as opposed to doing tons of research to get something historically accurate. Don’t get me wrong; most of the time, I really enjoy the research. But I can really just let go with minimal ‘work’ when I don’t have to wear myself out researching every last detail.

    I’m not really such a contemporary reader either. I don’t dislike them, so long as they aren’t about sports heroes, but I’d rather have paranormal, sci-fi or fantasy any day.

    Ooh la la, that cover is sexy. And I love contemporary, myself. I doubt it will die, though–the same thing has been said about every other romance genre, and they always bounce back.

    Besides, I’m a short writer, so as long as Harlequin doesn’t die, I’ll be okay. LOL

    I’m a contemporary gal to. I write it and read it.
