Candidate's romance novel an issue again
Would this be happening if her name was Stan Combs and her book had been published as a thriller by Random House instead of a Kismet Romance?
I don't think so.
Not crazy about some of the comments from her publicity people, either, though:
"It was written as kind of a lark, not serious literature," Bashur said. "It was described to me as paint-by-numbers formula writing, a genre."
Gee, thanks for the rousing defense of Ms. Comb's literary efforts.
