What I Want In A Romance!


Hi everyone. I just wanted to chime in with what I like in a romance--not just as an editor, mind you, but also as an reader.


I want a plot, characters and emotions that grab my attention and keep it. If you can make me laugh and cry with your work, then I am hooked.


For me paranormals should be riveting, whether it's a werewolf or a vampire. Love those bad boys or girls.


Historicals have to be accurate in facts or I really get turned off. Believe me, I research something that doesn't feel or read right.


Okay, so now you know I'm a precise editor and an avid, pleasure, reading girl and in case you didn't pick up on it, I'm pretty nice most of the time...lol.


Glad to be here in the garden.

I am so embarrassed. I thought I proofed by post before I hit published but it seems I missed a word. Hear should be here. If anyone knows how to edit a post, then please let me know...lol.

I hate blogging. I never know what to say. You did a great job. I thought maybe you were trying to hear the music in the garden. lol.

We spent the day working on our edits. Hope everything works!

to edit a post you go to the upper right hand corner of your screen. There should be a link that says edit post or new post, which ever one you click will bring you back to your posting control panel.

find the post you want to edit and click "edit post" and you can tweak it all you want. Then hit publish again. It's very easy. :)

I know what you mean, Tia. It seems to be much easier writing a book...lol.

Looking forward to getting your edits back to you!

Thanks Vicky,

I tried that and got to the edit screen, but I didn't have any luck in editing it.

I must be doing something wrong.
I do appreciate your help!

lol, you're very welcome. I guess I should have said you'll see another "edit post" button and need to click it but you found it anyway. :)
