Bodice-rippers of Old, Be Gone!

Readers will get what they demand.  Since women are expecting realistic characters, who reflect current times, romance authors are delivering a variety of fantastic female lead characters.  I have seen the trend toward deeper, better developed characters for over 20 years.  The next goal is to focus on the portrayal of women of color – all colors – accurately. 

To quote the “vintage” Virginia Slims’ ads – “You’ve come a long way, baby.”
