Why this Author Loves Her C Grade


  1. If you're curious about why a lot of people read romances and how they're graded, consider getting a copy of Janice Radway's Reading the Romance—especially the discussion of the newsletter writer and her system.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion Jake! I really appreciate it. It's funny… a week after I received the review I wrote about in this post, I got a 5-star review from a different blogger. Just goes to show that reading is a highly subjective activity.

  2. This is definitely a different perspective I think I'd do well to keep in mind. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    1. Glad to do it! As much as a not-so-great review might make us feel crummy, it really is more helpful sometimes than a glowing review that doesn\’t go into detail. If I know what I\’m doing wrong, I can improve it. If I know what I\’m doing right, I can only keep doing that. There is always room to grow.
