Hello romance world! Welcome to our brand-new blog. We are so thrilled to be joining the romance conversation and community! Although we have a few posts for your perusal, today is our first official day, so we wanted to take the time to briefly introduce ourselves.
We are two lifelong lovers of romantic fiction. In our real lives, we are both aspiring professors. Because of the stuck-up world of academia, we are forced to write this blog under the pen names Elinor Wolfe and Lola Quirk. Although we are incredibly proud to be romance readers, blogger, and (hopefully) writers, the reality of hiring committees and tenure track jobs means that we will be part of the romance community anonymously.
However, while our names are masked, our opinions definitely are not. Our goal is to read great books, write thoughtful and fun reviews, help you find your next favorite author, and talk to you awesome romance readers and writers! We’re hoping for a dialogue here; perhaps you love an underappreciated author, or you’re looking for a particular feature on a romance blog– if so, we want to hear from you! Let us know what you like and don’t like, what you wish to see more of, or if you’d like to join the conversation (leave a comment on our posts or stop by our Contact page)!
Please take a look around and explore the content we have ready for you. You can find out more about us on our Behind the Masks page and find out about ways to get involved on our Policies page. We’ll be adding content regularly, so keep coming back for new stuff. Thanks for being one of our first readers!
