BRINGING YOU THE BEST IN ROMANCE FICTION
There’s something about the holidays that brings out romance. Christmas romances abound on the Hallmark Channel and bookstore shelves. This time of year, we love to celebrate family, home, and warm hearts. The holidays are a time to gather together, set aside the burdens of the year, and embrace new opportunities coming ripe with the New Year.
Many people will be happy to see the back side of 2016 and hope for a grander, more satisfying, embraceable 2017. From politics to celebrity death, I’m hearing friends on social media and around the dinner table heave a big sigh and cross their fingers that the future is brighter than the present. Don’t we wake up every morning just hoping that our day will surprise and delight us? Adding a little bit of romance into the mix, even if it’s just a really good tale of cute meetings and hearts recognizing some similarity between them, can be enough to give us the pep and vigor to face another day. However we find it, we need hope in our lives.
I spent this week writing, and I added in those sprinklings of humor and quick witted dialogue intended to make the reader smile. Though winter months can be dark, we have ways to brighten our time together and it’s important to remember that humor is one of the best antidotes.
What I’ve been writing is some of the sweetest, happiest characters. Good for them. I hope for more of the same for all of us.
