Our Audience Is Out There!

This was not one of my best selling weeks at Costco, but I did have one wonderful experience. A woman who stopped by my table said she recognized Illuminations of the Heart from a website that listed “clean” romances. She didn't remember the name of the website or blog, alas, but she not only bought a copy of my book, she gave me a big hug, and said, “Bless you!” and thanked me for writing a clean romance that she could read without worry or fear of stumbling across something "inappropriate" in it. I must say, if I had sold only one book, that would have made my day!


Ladies, there are people out there looking for clean books to read, and they're not only LDS! So to one and all of you...keep on writing!

  1. I'm glad there are clean romances out there- or any clean books for adults at all! It is hard to find a character driven book that doesn't have a lot of nastiness in it. Even some YA is pushing my limits. I guess that's part of why I write:) Thanks for the encouragement.

  3. What a sweet experience. And I know it's true...it has to be true or there wouldn't be so many of us driven to write.

  6. What great reinforcement. There are so many "quiet" people out there who want clean but who are subsumed by what publishers or directors tell us--and think?--we want.
