Thanks to the wonders of pre-set posting, today while you read this, I’m actually on my way to Australia, for the beginning of a two-week trip to Australia and New Zealand, where I’ll be attending two romances conferences and giving a presentation to publishers. So in honor of that, today’s questions is all about location.
I often see readers say they wish their were more non-Regency, non-England/Scotland set romances. Yet often publishers seem to avoid more unusual places because it is the England/Scotland set ones that sell more copies.
Or maybe you’re wishing for a contemporary romance, set in say, Egypt or Brazil, but can’t seem to get your hands on one (outside the Harlequin category lines), does this bother you?
Tell me, do you like books set in unusual places, or even when the opportunity to buy one presents itself, do you still find yourself passing it by, in favor of a more traditional setting?
