Nicole Locker - one of my first "friends" in the self-publishing business, an amazing romance author, and my personal proof reader - wrote this great article about romance books and their impact on women. Our goal as authors in this genre is not only to write about love & sex, it is about strong women who are true to themselves and fight for their words, and it's also about showing our female readers that each of us is perfect in their own way. Last week, a girl contacted me via Instagram and told me that I motivated her to write her first book because she wasn't expecting such a good book from a newbie like me which gave her the needed self-confidence to try her luck. I was so honored!
Anyway, you should definitely check out this blog post from Nicole Locker - love her work!!!
