“A myth is a way of making sense in a senseless world. Myths are narrative patterns that give significance to our existence.” ― Rollo May
Through that long and lasting journey, romance has cultivated a reputation. For the diehard enthusiast, it is a positive one – a love for books that represent female stories, friendships and love. For the uneducated, myths abound about the role of romance and how it impacts our world. I’d like to set a few of those straight.
Romance novel lovers love romance novels. We don’t need to convince them of why or how because they already understand the progressive, important and joyful experience that is the genre. The non-believer, however, is a different case.
