message 1: by Emily (new)

Emily (emilymorland) SO glad to have found this group (thanks Elise)! I'm 18, Christian, want to be a writer, was homeschooled, and am studying to be a librarian (the friendly kind who smile at you when you come in, not the tight bun/big glasses type who give you a stern look). Anyway, I'm here because I LOVE books and am always on the hunt for good clean ones. This is such a wonderful group! I'm excited!

Kay Springsteen (kayspringsteen) | 44 comments I'm new. I write clean contemporary romance and clean romantic suspense. I have been doing a blog series on clean romance and today my guest blogger is Nancy Naigle, who has mentioned a few of her favorite clean romance authors and stories, and also asked folks to comment on their own favorite authors. I have also put up a PDF copy of my debut novel Heartsight for a drawing of one commenter. The blog can be found here:

Kay Springsteen (kayspringsteen) | 44 comments That's the way I write - and I write what I like to read, so just reading her blurb had my interest.

Hi Felicia! So glad you've found our group. Thanks for writing clean novels. We need more of them! :-) If they are romances, feel free to add them to our group bookshelf. Kay, you can add your clean romances to our bookshelf, too. :-)


message 18: by Kay (new)

Kay Springsteen (kayspringsteen) | 44 comments Thank you. I will. As soon as I figure out how. :-)


message 19: by Therese (new)

Therese Gilardi | 19 comments hi fellow sweet readers! and thank you to kay springsteen who told me about this group. i'm a clean romance writer, my sweet paranormal "Matching Wits With Venus", about a hollywood matchmaker and the roman god cupid, was just released by astraea press. my website is http://theresegilardi.com

i'm looking forward to hearing what everyone loves to read - i'm always on the lookout for new authors. i often find that 19th century novels fall into the clean category. do a lot of you also find yourselves drawn to older novels?


message 20: by Kay (new)

Kay Springsteen (kayspringsteen) | 44 comments I'm reading Therese's story now and have to keep stopping until my laughter subsides in some parts. Her characters run the gamut of emotions but I have to admit I love this petulant Venus and somewhat bumbling Cupid.

Hi Therese - you'd have fun among my bookshelves. (There's photos of them on my blog.) I do like old books, particularly if they're not too stodgy and wordy. I have titles by Jeffrey Farnol, A.E.W. Mason, Kipling, Baroness Orczy, Rafael Sabatini, P.C. Wren, Elinor Glyn (!), Marie Corelli, Lord Lytton, Mark Twain, Charles Kingsley, V.B. Ibaznez, lots of others.

Can't claim to have read them all, am more a collector these days. And they're not all 19th century, but I'm a patient reader and don't always enjoy the insistence of modern writers to drag one along by the scruff of the neck. In fact, I'm not much interested in the "must have the latest best-seller" trend at all. Call me old-fashioned!

Monya (aka Mary)

Anna (SylviaGrant) | 18 comments Hi Emily, Caroline, Jaimey, Joyce, Sakura, Jennifer, Janna, Danielle, Jessica and everyone else. I am glad to be here but not really staying yet another newbie. This group was a answer to my hopes and dreams. I have always been a sucker for romance ever since Pride and Prejudice but have found very little clean romances nowadays.
