Funny, one doesn't always associate Jersey with Princeton, do one? But I'm a Jersey lover, my Bellas, having begun there my illustrious college career (Say it with me, "'s OK, Michelle. There are lots of folks who take 11 years to get degrees: they're called doctors").
Anyways, you can't believe the response I'm getting from your community mates and fellow Bellas as they answer my query 'bout what I should address the smarty pantses about at the Princeton conference. From how romances empower women and help some recover from sexual abuse -- to calls encouraging scholars to study the down-n-dirty, decadent escapist romance that's the lifeblood of romance fiction -- the suggestions are astute, considered and show how much you all know about romance novels.
Keep your suggestions coming. And in the meantime, let me know what you're reading! I just chatted with Emma Holly whose kickoff novel to her new Fitz Clare Chronicles series, "Kissing Midnight," (exerpt here) has me hot, bothered and dying (DYING!) for the next installment! Emma'll be visiting RBTB soon, and you can look forward to an RBTB exclusive excerpt from Bella Emma!
