New Writers of the Purple Prose
The romance field, Margraet Moser writes, is unique in its symbiosis:
Most writers come from the ranks of readers and therefore understand
the marriage of reader and book. The sisterhood and moral support in
this almost exclusively female dominion is palpable. It is also gratifying
and empowering and, in a few cases, exceedingly lucrative.
"...cover artists, booksellers, and just about anyone else who contributes to romance publishing, the industry that raked in $1.35..."
