Since we've been up and running here for a while, I thought it was time we started an intro thread for the folks who're here regularly to stop in and tell us about themselves.
I'm Elizabeth, the Romance Novels Host. I've been hosting the Romance Novels site here at BellaOnline since the initial start-up of the site back in 1999, and have stayed on throughout the various incarnations and owners. I've been reading romance novels forever now, and have added to my auto-buy list over the years so now I probably have a couple dozen auto-buy authors in the genre. I have also been writing romance novels for quite a long time, with an eye toward selling. I've written contemporary, both series length and single title length, paranormal and erotic. I'm doing the agent query game and plan to have some mss. out with editors again this fall.
My reading is mostly in the romance genre, though I have been a huge Stephen King fan for years, and have a handful of authors outside of romance that I read regularly. In romance, I will give most anything a shot once. But I'm not a fan of the inspirational stories--just not my cup of tea--and I'm sick of vampires and demons. I'd love to see some good
time travels again, and I wish Diana Gabaldon would write that last Jamie and Claire story and let Lord John wait until later.
I usually read very quickly, so can read a book or so a day, depending on the book length. That's made my book room fill and overflow in a rather short period of time. lol
In 'real life', offline that is, I work in a bookstore, which serves to support my reading habit more than actually earning me money.
And that's probably more than enough for now.
