The Man Writing a Romance wishes everyone a wonderful Christmas. I know that even if you don't celebrate Christmas, your life is likely guided by three essential principles: peace, forgiveness and love.
Every romance novel needs to end with a "happily-ever-after." On the way, though, there has to be discord, tension, doubt, misunderstanding, jealousy, mistrust...things that make life difficult and happiness seem impossible. And how is the HEA finally achieved? Through peace, forgiveness and love.
Romance is the most-read genre for a reason, and that reason is that we all crave peace, forgiveness and love. We crave them for ourselves, and one way we get them is to give them to others.
So, again: Have a wonderful Christmas, followed by a new year full of "happily-ever-afters."
