Day 9 Romancing September Across The World Blog Tour
Welcome to Day 9 of the Romancing September Across The World Blog Tour. The question I put out to all of these authors was “What challenges do you face in writing romance in today’s society?”
Don’t forget to go over to Rosie Amber’s page and check out her page too. I’ll put the link at the bottom of this post.
Today my guest author is Juliette Hill and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about Juliette and her book A Clue For Adrianna.
What Challenges do you face writing romance in today’s society?
My biggest challenge writing romance in today’s society is that the category of romance has so many subcategories—contemporary romantic fiction, being quite large. The competition is fierce! I think another big challenge is satisfying your market of readers. I truly believe writers should always stay true to themselves and their message and not change just because an audience/readership would prefer something else at a particular moment in time. I believe as long as you write a good story, readers will buy it and read it.
