Hi Adrienne!

My answer to the first question is that money talks. Romance sells. Whether people want to admit they actually read it is another matter, but romance novels are a billion dollar a year business. You can't throw shade at that kind of relevance.

As for the second part, I don't write erotica. I write erotic romance where sex is explicit, but the center of the story focuses on the romance/relationship between the protagonists. I only clarify because readers looking for books in the erotica genre are looking for books whose focus in on the sex and sexual development of the character. I work hard at what I do, so I have no shame in the product that I produce. If I'm ashamed of what I write I shouldn't be writing it.

My fans are very supportive, and I don't really listen to naysayers. I've always danced to my own drum, decided what was normal for me. My tagline is: Embracing my crazy...one character at a time. If I like it, it works for me. So, people that fail to appreciate my genre, they don't have much of an impact on my opinion of my genre, my work, nor my readership.(less)

I wanted to skip forward a couple of years and see how that love had evolved and if it could withstand new challenges, darker challenges.(less)

Musings of A Romance Junkie added a status update: I be feeling some type of way when I see a mainstream romance with literally thousands of ratings and/or reviews, but my IR/MC/AA authors barely get 100. We gotta do better y'all. Rate, review, recommend!
