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?
Baby, 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:
