I feel like we all need a little pick-me-up?
I’ve been cackling all morning like the witch I am over this interview with Nicholas Sparks in USAToday? It starts off amazing:
Nicholas Sparks has no love for people who call his stories “romances.”The mega-best-selling author of The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, Nights in Rodanthe, Dear John and Message in a Bottle stands in the aisle of Book Soup, literally and figuratively defending his turf.
“If you look for me, I’m in the fiction section. Romance has its own section,” he says toward the end of a long conversation. Sunshine streams in from Sunset Boulevard. He’s smiling. Hard.
“I don’t write romance novels.” His preferred terminology: “Love stories — it’s a very different genre. I would be rejected if I submitted any of my novels as romance novels.”
It only gets better. The man is a parody of himself. Enjoy!
