NY Times- Lusty Tales and Hot Sales: Romance E-Books Thrive
This article came across a couple of lists I'm on, including Lyrical's, and it's worth noting here. Because yeah, I'm one of those who doesn't like to brag that I read romance novels every now and then. (And I certainly don't brag to the general public I write military romances featuring gay men.) eBook readers are getting more and more popular by the day and the eBook world is obviously growing by leaps and bounds. Romance and writers like myself have found a home that traditional publishers just weren't (and still aren't to some extent) ready to take on.
BTW- Gwenna is getting a Nook (The Barnes and Noble version of the Kindle) for Christmas. How thrilled am I?
Update on VN2- I cracked the 85K mark last night. Nate and Ian finally got their act together, in more ways than one. LOL. It only took me all damn day to write it. Geesh. You'd think I never wrote this stuff before. The good news is I can see daylight at the end of the tunnel and should be able to wrap this up with another 10k words. Maybe I'll actually have this finished by the end of the year. Maybe. Only two months past my personal deadline. Oy.
VN2 word count: 85,109K
