An author interview I'd like to see:
Q: So, you're now writing romance?
A: No. I write fantasy. I don't write or read romance. (sneers on last word)
Q: But you sold this book to the largest romance publisher in the world.
A: Yes, but the (insert imprint) is strictly fantasy. No romance. It is not a romance.
Q: But it's being marketed as romance, and shelved in romance, and the spine says romance.
A: That's merely marketing ploys. (sniffs) My novel is not a romance, it's a fantasy.
Q: But your plot follows the relationship arc between a male and female character.
A: That's just part of the plot. (makes dismissive gesture) Not the whole plot. Not even half of the plot.
Q: Characters who fall in love. And live happily ever after. How about that part?
A: (face reddens)Didn't you read my book? I have magic! I have unnatural creatures! I have authentic Celtic spells! It's a fantasy!
Q: You really have a problem with romance, don't you?
A: (glaring)I told you, I don't read romance. Or write it.
Q: So, okay. Um, did you read the review Romantic Times wrote about your book?
A: (leaves the room.)
