For anyone who hasn't seen it, some full of himself nitwitt wrote a thoroughly uninformed article that purported romance novels were responsible for the downfall of love and real romance, or some such bullshit. You know, he called them porn for women (wow, that's original), said they were badly written and soulless etc. based on a few he checked out of his local library and read with a critical eye. Ho hum. You can read it if you want, but honestly I wouldn't give the pompous, mentally deficient windbag any more attention than he deserves. Loooo---ser.
What is interesting is Smart Bitch Sarah Wendall's thought provoking, well informed reply. Good ammo for anyone who still likes to argue with the imbecilic blockheads who decide to judge our beloved genre on the basis of one M&B they read back in 1981. There's a good follow up piece at Dear Author on morality in romance if you're still interested and like to fiddle fart around instead of writing, like I do.
Not long til Chrissie and today I'm madly baking. This will no doubt be followed by some voracious eating.
