Well, we made it through the first month of 2018. Now we are into the second month, which is also a busy month. It’s Black History Month, Women’s Heart Health Month (Wear Red tomorrow), it’s also when we celebrate Valentine’s Day, which means that it is also romance reading month. Yes, that means that we can dive into the one of the most successful, if not popular genres of fiction, Romance.
Yes, I know that I like to write fantasy, but I also like a good romance novel too. The romance genre has hundreds if not thousands of titles published each year, and the genre of romance is banking in that ole mighty dollar. There is something to be said about the romance genre, and that is they do sell. There are several sub-genres of romance such as historical, fantasy, paranormal, and there are the newly popular erotica romances. These are just to name a few of the sub-genres.
This month I would like to spend a little bit of time studying and posting up blog posts about the romance genre. The reason for this is that I am finding more and more authors that are new to the writing game that have a desire to write romance. This is also a perfect time to look at some of the works that are written in the romance genre and the already published authors of such works.
I must admit that I have a few romance novels, that I would like to re-engage with and so far I must admit that I have done little reading this year and I need to get back into reading. So part of my goal this month is to read a bit more than what I have been doing in the past but to also write reviews on some of what I read as well.
So here is my list of goals this month:
- Read some more
- Talk about the romance genre
- Work on The Raven Prophecy some more
- Work on Ravages of Time some more
- Start re-working The Zodiac Tower
- Publish some work this month
