Day Three

The Today Show clip
(thanks Taryn!)
Definitely a mixed bag in terms of what they aired -- basic facts about romance's popularity side-by-side with some really tired stereotypes underlined in a way that does not give a balanced picture of the romance market, authors, and readers -- clinch covers! we read them for the sex scenes! *sigh*

I got an email telling me about it right as The Today Show was supposed to come on here, so I watched the entire show, though I usually watch Good Morning America...never saw a thing.

I'm a RWA member and belong to the KYRW chapter and since I'm not in San Fran, I was hoping to catch a glimpse...nope- didn't happen. If I find out why I'll be sure to post back.
