Brace Yourselves for Sunset Romance in September 29 August 2009

Posted by Camille Gooderham Campbell in Random Thoughts.

Coming soon to an ezine on your screen…

Looking at Every Day Fiction’s calendar for September, it suddenly struck me that we have rather a wealth of sweetness and romance featuring older people coming up. Of course, when I say “wealth”, I mean three — but ordinarily we go months without publishing even one of those. We’ve also got plenty of humour and sci-fi, but we’re a bit short of serious literary fiction.

At the end of last month, putting together August’s calendar, we were scraping around for light humour pieces and swimming in dark suspense and horror.

These things have a way of coming in waves, in bunches — not just genre, but something more specific, like romances between seniors. Sometimes I wonder whether they’re connected by some prompt or writing group exercise; maybe when I notice a pattern, there really is a pattern.

Or maybe it’s just coincidence.
