Heckler Criticizes Author J.K. O'Hanlon for 'Just' Writing Romance; Her Answer: “Hell, Yeah, and Proud of It!”
by BWW News Desk - Sep 28, 2013

When a heckler at a book panel discussion chastised romance writer newbie, J.K. O'Hanlon for 'just writing romance,' the author's first instinct was to convert back to her life as an attorney and put the man under cross-examination. But instead, she says, she understands all too well the man's comment, and admits that, at first, writing romance novels did seem as though it would be easy. O'Hanlon is author of 'Objection Overruled,' debuting from Loose Id and winning this year's best Contemporary Single Title for the Romance Writers of America's 2013 Golden Heart. 'When I decided to take down my lawyer shingle and write, one of the reasons I chose romance was that I thought it would be easy. After all, there's a formula: boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back, they live happily ever after,' O'Hanlon says. 'Two books later, and well into my third book, I've learned my lesson. Writing romance isn't formulaic or easy. For those who've never tried it, though, that phrase 'it's just a romance' sometimes tumbles too easily from their lips.' With no delusions now that it's easy, she writes romance, O'Hanlon says, because a great love story is transforming. 'Maybe not everyOne Dreams of finding a soul mate, but most people do,' she says. 'A romance raises our spirits and reminds us of love's transforming power over men and women, as individuals and as a couple. It brings happiness to many people's lives.' The genre has certainly pique an interest with millions. Romance fiction sales are estimated at $1.350 billion for 2013 and 74.8 million people read at least one romance novel in 2008, according to the Romance Writers of America. That's more than three times the sales in literary fiction, says O'Hanlon. But there's no need for any writer in any genre to feel threatened, O'Hanlon believes. 'There is not a finite amount of reading that can occur in the universe. A romance lover can also buy a classic or a mystery or a high fantasy. Many do, including me,' she says. O'Hanlon's Midwest upbringing had her surrounded by all kinds of books, including romance. 'My mother read every single Harlequin romance written for probably a 30-year time span, until her deteriorating vision moved her to audio books. Whether she was reading the latest romance or Moby Dick didn't matter squat to a 5-year old girl. My mom read and loved it with an unquenchable passion. She turned that book addiction over to both my sister and me, both of us becoming avid readers and writers of romance,' O'Hanlon says. "So when someone accuses me of writing 'just romance,' I tell them, 'Hell, yeah, and proud of it!'" O'Hanlon says. (more...)

The Pursuit of Fashion: Compelling New Novel Depicts Small-Town Girl's Tumultuous Battle with Cut-Throat World of High Fashion
by BWW News Desk - Sep 28, 2013

While it can afford a prestigious life of global travel, celebrity encounters and plenty of cash, making it in the world of high fashion design isn't exactly a walk in the park. As a true 'who you know' industry, growing up in a small Canadian town with no connections in the business makes success seemingly impossible. However, in a gripping new novel from Curtis Keith Simms, one small-town girl's aggressive passion for high fashion design is put to the test to see if she can beat the odds and break into the industry she dreams of dominating. 'The Pursuit of Fashion - Bon Bon, Couture & Vexatious Bitc#es' shares her successes, failures, triumphs and defeats. Synopsis: Bonita Smith is a young woman who has lived a segregated life growing up in a small rural town in Newfoundland, Canada. Her One Dream throughout her whole childhood has been to escape the grips of the island and to embark upon an adventurous journey to New York City to pursue a career in high fashion design. With her little knowledge of the real world and an ambition as big as the Pacific Ocean, she will encounter the red tape, stresses and disappointments that await her in the big city. Battling the elements and cut throat corners of the fashion world. Join us in a young woman's triumph over the good, the bad and the ugly while finding out the truths in life and discovering what's important and what isn't. As the author explains, his book is chock-full of suspense and dreams that will resonate with female readers of all backgrounds. 'Fashion design is one of those industry's that, while so many people want to make it big, few ever will. However, from a female reader's point of view, they'll be able to recognize the difficulties that women face every day in a myriad of industries,' says Simms. Continuing, 'Men will also appreciate it, too. It's rare for men to read about the struggles many face trying to break into and maintain status within their chosen industry. I hope it gives them something to think about and perhaps even changes how they treat female colleagues in their own workplace.' With a second book in the works, there's plenty more to come from Simms. In the meantime, 'The Pursuit of Fashion - Bon Bon, Couture & Vexatious Bitc#es's will be available on October 15th 2013 through all major retail platforms and through SmashWords where you can buy and download in any format to fit your devices or pc: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/356887 More information can be found on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/curtiskeithsimms.
