Men reading romance, men writing romance!

I love it when I get fabulous feedback.  And this morning, I didn’t just get fabulous feedback, I got a big pat on the shoulder from David Thome, Writer.

A few weeks back, I posted a feature on fellow romance writer LA Dale’s blog entitled, “Do Men Really Read Romance.”  I suggested that men are closet romance lovers, not least because everyone loves a happy ending.

The post got a lot of feedback–unsurprisingly, perhaps, from women who whole-heartedly agree. So far, so good. However, it emerges that the post resonated loudly with romance writer David Thome, who also whole-heartedly agrees, seeing as that he actually writes romance. And here’s my pat on the back: he emailed me to let me know he’d quoted parts of my humble post on his blog, Man Writing A Romance. I went to check it out, and I loved it. Apart from Dave’s post and blog being really interesting, it’s a wonderful feeling to receive the credit for something you wrote… and seeing such wonderful agreement from, well, let’s face it, the target audience. #romcom4all, let’s make it happen.

Once again, the floor is open to you. What do you make of all of this? Don’t forget to visit Dave’s blog to see what the fuss is all about….
