Love and Life Lessons – #MFRWauthor

It’s Friday and this is Week 28 of the MFRWauthor Blog Challenge.Thanks for hanging in there with me for more than half a year!

The topic for this week is “life lessons in my books”, which is a toughie because I have… well…just one published book out. I’m working on more (I swear!), but having written only one book doesn’t really lend itself to discovering a theme, you know?

Robin Michaela - Southern Roads: Baby, Count On MeBaby, Count on Me is a reunited/second chances romance. It’s about college sweethearts who stumble upon each other again after several years. Neither has gotten over the other, but now there’s a once-bitten-twice-shy wariness they’ll need to get past if they want to be together.

By definition, romances have to conclude with a Happily Ever After (or Happy For Now) ending or they aren’t really romances. So, I suppose I could say a life lesson or theme for this book is that you should believe in the magic of love.

That’s one of the reasons I enjoy writing (and reading) romances. In this crazy world of people shooting each other over parking spaces (yup, happened yesterday in our fair city), murders, political dissatisfaction, gangs, car-jackings and home invasions, at least I know I can lose myself in a romance and forget everything else for awhile.

Like the Beatles song says, “love is all you need.” I’m hoping to spread that love one romance novel at a time.

This is a blog hop. See what life lessons the other authors on the blog challenge are hoping to pass on in their books:

      I’m not thinking of some life lesson either. I’m more focused on details like story structure and turning points. Maybe I’ll start including life lessons around Book #20, when I have a better idea of what I’m doing, lol.

    There’s nothing like escaping into a happily-ever-after whether you’re reading or writing it. I love the way you put it… In your words… “So, I suppose I could say a life lesson or theme for this book is that you should believe in the magic of love.” Yes! ❤
