According to the Romance Writers of America, RWA, the estimated sales of romance novels, in 2013, was $1.08 billion. There is a substantial interest in these pieces that continually draws in new people and has long-term dedicated fans who keep returning for more stories. So it is worth knowing, what the romance genre is.
Today, I posted my first ever readathon over on my YouTube channel. By not stressing myself out for my low-key readathon, I read **a lot**. By the end of the day, I read over 1,000 pages. If I am being completely honest, I surprised myself. I didn't expect to have read that much.
Congratulations to everyone who got their words on the page.!! WordsOnThePageAThon, the 24 hour writing challenge I created, came and went this past April 7th! I am so proud of everyone who wrote during the writeathon.
If you know me, you know I love romances. Plain and simple. First love stories especially. There is something about first love that just strikes a chord within me as the reader. No Filter is just that, my cup of tea – a first love, contemporary, coming of age story. This had all of my favorite YA literary elements in one. Needless to say, I read this in practically one sitting (with minor breaks to refresh my cup of tea).
A romance book box?!? YES! Eek! The my romance club sent me an additional box after my last unboxing video. This time it is their erotica box. Be sure to let me know what you think about the box down in the comment section.
