I’m amazed that after all the years that Christian romance has been on the market that there are still people who look at me like I’m crazy when I say I write Christian or inspirational romance.
Years and years of novels have been printed, and yet the general populace has no idea.
Because our society has distorted what love and romance look like. Sex is a powerful tool for advertisers.
If you eat this hamburger, this beautiful, sexy girl can be yours. HA! That beautiful, sexy girl has probably been so photo-shopped she doesn’t even recognize herself.
If you wear this perfume, this hunk-of-burning-love will race to your side and carry you away and make mad, passionate love to you. Bwahaha!
True love and romance have NOTHING to do with sex.
And yet, our society perpetuates the lie over and over.
Can you have love and romance without sex? Absolutely. Every author on this blog proves it each time one of their books releases.
Love is not about kissing, touching, or sex. While these may be a by-product of love, they can be mutually exclusive. You can love without them, and you can have them without love.
So how do we combat this phenomenon? (I started to write the word new in there, but in truth it has been around for far too long.)
We share about the great books we read with our friends and family–on social media and in person (gasp). If the masses don’t know there’s such a thing as Christian/inspirational romance, then we need to TELL THEM.
And NOW is a great time to do it. We’re giving away tons of free books that prove my point. So go out and tell a friend.
Happy hunting…er I mean sharing,
PS. I have a doctor’s appointment this morning, so please be patient if I don’t respond to your comments right away. I value your input and will get to them as soon as I can. Thanks.
