"Books aren't written - they're rewritten. Including your own. It is one of the hardest things to accept, especially after the seventh rewrite hasn't quite done it."
— Michael Crichton
Welcome to Happily Ever After
This is my dedicated website for romance writers and readers. Of course, if you write other kinds of fiction, you too are more than welcome to visit. :) In fact, I'll go so far as to say you might learn something from us romance writers. We work long, hard hours writing our love stories.
And if you write romance novels (or enjoy reading romance novels), then look around. I've tried to create a nice little corner on the web for us to sit back and enjoy.
