Finally — the first article about romance writers is out! It was published in today’s Philadelphia Inquirer.

This article involved book 11 of 52, book 12 of 52, book 13 of 52, and book 15 of 52. Phew, that’s a lot of lovin!

And what’s with the title of this post? This quote from the story:

“‘They are amazingly intelligent women who are exceptionally talented,’ says Sarah Wendell, coauthor of Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches’ Guide to Romance Novels (Fireside, April 2009, $15) and a romance-industry blogger at ‘They’re not just women in fanny packs or extremely rich women in big pink houses writing about love nubbins all day.'”

I didn’t think they’d leave in “love nubbins,” but included the quote anyway…and voila, Sarah has introduced the term to the Delaware Valley.
