Love Is a Many Splendored Thing
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!
