The latest edition of At the Back Fence has an interesting article on erotic romance and the RWA graphical standards debacle. Here's an interesting quote from LLB: "Although there have been drastic improvements in the quality of e-books available, I personally believe e-publishing has a way to go in order to compete with traditional print publishers in terms of quality, and until more time has passed and more improvements in the buying and editing of e-books for publishing are made, e-book authors will continue to have second-class status within a genre [EF: romance or erotic romance? I'm not sure which she means] that has second-class stamped all over it."
Hmm. I've remarked here before about the importance of editing in ebooks. But I'll add that I've read a lot of terrific ebooks, so I don't really agree with this statement. But that probably goes without saying:-).
Also, please notice that yours truly is mentioned in the section on "Addiction in Historicals." The hero in my first book The Light in the Darkness was an alcoholic.
