>Are the storylines in romances really THAT similar? 
Well, let's put it this way: I knew it was time to move on to writing 
"real" books when an editor turned down my umpteenth bodice-ripper 
proposal because it was "too funny and too adventurous for a romance."

There were, of course, other signals, such as the fact that the second 
mortgage on the house was paid off and the kids were out of private school.
