One of the main reasons I began writing RNFF last fall was to reach out to readers, writers, and literary critics, hoping to start a dialogue with others who are committed both to feminist principles and to the genre of romance. It's been a welcome and quite lovely surprise to discover that there are so many of us out there, all invested in the possibilities of romance fiction, yet not willing to settle for books that shortchange us as women. I'm looking forward to the wonderful books, and intriguing conversations, that RNFF's second year will bring.
I'll be taking a one-week break from posting, but will be back on August 13th, ready to share more opinions and ideas about feminism and romance novels. In the meantime, I'd love to know what topics you'd be interested in seeing discussed here in future...
