This post is for all of you, me included, that lose yourself in a romance novel often or as often as you can. Have you ever wondered why it’s one of the largest genres? Well here is my take on this.
A romance novel can take the reader to another place. Maybe it’s another country, some exotic destination or just to another time in history. You may be saying, well so can science fiction, non fiction or any of the other genres out there. For some reason a romance novel just inspires you to want more.
Maybe the reader just needs to lose themselves in someone else’s world for a while. It’s a way to escape and what better way than to lose yourself in a romance novel. Most romance novels end with a happy ending and you’re pretty sure to have a better outlook when you finish.
Most romance novels just leave you wanting to read another one. Maybe you like the sexy characters that are described in the stories that unfold. Maybe it’s the feelings that a good romance brings about in you.
For me a good romance inspires me. I’ve been reading romance novels since I was a young teenager. There’s something about following someone else’s relationship and not having to worry whether you’ve said the right thing or done the right thing. You just leave it up to the character.
If it’s a good descriptive romance, you may even feel like you’re part of the story. Sometimes I’m reading and I get so immersed in the story that I forget everything around me. That’s what I try to achieve in the romance that I write. I want my readers to get lost in the story. I want it to make them feel better about themselves or at least feel better than they did when they started.
As I always say, this is just my thoughts on the subject. What are yours?
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
This post is for my client and friend Christa Davis. She has recently published a book telling the story of her mothers battle with Metal replacement allergies. Hope you will check out this touching and revealing true story on Amazon.
Christa C. Davis – Steel Standing Bio
Patricia Davis Harton had been a vibrant, energetic and independent person all her life, bit in 2009 she was diagnosed with Inflammatory Myopathy. Although she had lived an incredibly healthy life, neurologists said her muscles would continue to weaken over time.
Her daughter, Christa, initiated her own research trying to discover what could have triggered the inflammation. Time was of the essence, since Patricia’s health began deteriorating soon after she was diagnosed. A pivotal clue unearthed the key to the medical mystery, unlocking answers and providing solutions.
Astonishingly, Patricia’s symptoms seemed to be caused by an allergic reaction to the metals used in her hip and knee replacements. It was not the case that the devices were faulty.
Christa’s theory, linking her mother’s muscle problems with her orthopaedic implants, was considered far-fetched and unlikey. At the time, the existence of metal induced allergy was not widely recognized. The facts documented throughout Steel Standing are obtained from highly credible medical sources, with patient case studies including scientific references and the latest published research.
Christa has a Bachelor of Science degree in health and business management and has worked in communications since 1986. With her innate skills, her career advanced through the years in publication, marketing, advertising, and public relations. A large part of her career has been spent working in medical centers together with specialty physicians in clinical and non-clinical settings.
