Carol Perkins: Romance sells

Previous Column: Staying in my lane

By Carol Perkins

A person I didn't know well discovered that I had authored several books. She asked what type and assured me I was in the wrong genre. "If you write dirty, trashy love stories, you will make a fortune." She knew this to be true. My ears perked up. "You mean like ....?" I asked.

"All I know is this I know someone who makes a fortune and uses a pen name," she said. "She cranks them out once a month and her readers can't wait."

I thought about her words, which took me back to my youth when my teenage friends and I sneaked to read True Story magazine at the beauty shop while our mothers were under the hairdryer. Compared to today, those stories were Disney-worthy (almost) but back then they were read in secret.
