Medieval Historical Romances: Alive and kicking!
In the musical Spamalot, which we were fortunate to see with the original (fantastic) cast in New York, there's a jaunty little tune sung by a guy whose family is trying to get him taken away in a plague cart. The gist is that he's not dead yet.
I often feel like singing that when I read yet another post that claims that medieval historical romances are dead and gone. Since I'm here and I'm still writing them, this is more than a tad frustrating.
But what's even more frustrating, so are a lot of other authors. Here's a list of some Harlequin writers who also write medieval historical romances:
Here are two new authors who write medievals (both coincidentally named Michelle):
Michelle Styles (who also does ancient Rome!)
So cue the chorus, 'cause the medieval's obviously not dead yet!
