Reading and Deliberating
K now I love the romance genre. I love to read it, I love to write it, but I'm seeing a trend emerging. Most romance covers could read like this, Bricker (because all men in romance novels have names that sound like last names or dog names) is an ex special forces operative (because no real romance man would be an accountant) who has lost hope in humanity. His time spent serving his country
has left unseen scars on his soul (because PTSD is way sexier then the loss of a limb or a gunshot wound to the belly). He is troubled by unseen demons (being haunted by the spawn of Satan is much cooler than having bad dreams and flashbacks). His life is turned upside down when he meets the beautiful (because romance women are all cast from the same mold as Angelina Jolie) Kevin (because
all romance women have male names).
Kevin is a successful attorney (because while all romance men barely passed their GED, romance women all went to Harvard on an academic scholarship) who has dedicated her entire life to her career (because all romance women are workaholic spinsters at the age of 24). When the client of a pro bono murder case (because all romance men are demons and all romance women are saints) becomes obsessed with her, she must rely on Bricker to save her life (because romance women always put their lives in the hands of total strangers). Will their love be able to survive when things take a turn for the worst (because it can always get worse than being hunted by a homicidal
So, the challenge is to write a cliche, funny, romance novel cover. The winner will win fame and glory (on this website anyway).
