Love Is a Many Splendored Thing


Blogroll Me!



In my many years as a copy editor, working in the romance genre, I've worked on novels of all kinds:

Chick lit, Fantasy, Westerns, Medievals, Contemporary, Mystery, even Erotica.

I moved into the world of Christian romance novels, a very interesting literary hangout for a MO person like myself.

I've worked on African American books, and Regency romances.

All in all, I've worked on a spectrum of books that cover all kinds of love.

Have I learned anything at all from all this "mushy" stuff?

Yup! Whatever the color, whatever the country, whatever the subject, all those adages hold true:

Love is blind.
You can't hurry love.
Love will find a way.

And in the case of the Christian romance novels: JESUS LOVES YOU!

PT: Who, exactly, is "us"?

PsychoToddler said...

Why, the Captain and Tennille.

Very cute....
How mushy is Jesus?

torontopearl said...

PT: I knew it was the Captain and Tennille; I just didn't know whether "us" meant anyone in particular to you.

David: Let me tell you, Jesus is pretty much "hands off" -- he's as modest as they come, and so are the books.

Hello, Teena,

The novelty of the job did wear off; it became more of a novelty for others!
