Real time romance, do you look for stories you can relate to?
Small town, up town, down town, any town – I’m just looking for stories I can relate to – are you? That’s the topic of the day, please join in the conversation and comment below.
As of late, the best seller lists are mixed – you’ve got the Fifty Shades of Grey series at the top of the charts and other mainstream romance titles filling in through out — this confuses me.
EL James series is the farthest thing from reality in my opinion, but it seems to have captured readers young & old.
The usual suspects including Nora Roberts, Robyn Carr, Debbie Macomber and others are peppered throughout the charts, all great story tellers with stories I can relate to, with characters I’d like to meet & or places I’d like to live.
So what are we craving? What do readers really want? The stories that are current, real life with a dash of fantasy to the mix? Or stories like EL James writes, something completely out of our comfort zone topping the fantasy charts? Love to hear what you’re interested in buying today –
