I want to hear the choices of readers, writers, aspiring authors, editors, and everybody else who'd like to have their say. So, how shall I go about this? Well, the best way I can think of is this...
- If you are interested in contributing to the 100 Favourite Romances list, send me your top five personal choices for addition. If you really can't keep to five, more will be accepted -- but no more than ten! The titles you nominate can (and hopefully will) encompass all the different arms of the romance genre, from classical literature to category romances, "bonkbuster" doorsteppers to modern-day chick-lit, and everything in-between.
- As the nominations come in I will compile a database of sorts that will include every title that is nominated -- no restrictions -- and tally up any multiple votes for particular titles accordingly.
- After, say, a month of taking nominations, I'll collate and count and compile, and will therefore come up with a list of the top one hundred most favourite romance novels as nominated by everybody who loves romance and who was kind enough to share their opinion. I'll post the list here on my blog and after that, it will be open for tagging!
This is really exciting and I can't wait to see what everybody comes up with. Please do post links back to this post on your own blogs/sites and spread the word so we can get the most comprehensive list possible. Thank you -- and may the nominations begin!
