A Romance Novel for Michelle Obama
Moments ago I posted an article to The Huffington Post entitled A Romance Novel for Michelle Obama. Within three minutes it had been retweeted four times. Apparently the idea of our first family with a Harlequin in residence is a popular topic!
Two minutes later, two more tweets.
Why it’s dated yesterday I can’t figure out. But it’s up. Please comment and share!
Though the post contains great photos of the President holding a romance novel, the real star of this story is Geri Krotow. I urge everyone to head over to her blog and read her first-hand account of what happened — a dream come true for her. The photos there are bigger, too. My HuffPo post is about reading, ultimately. Geri’s is about the actual event. Thank you, Geri, for sharing, and thank you for letting me broadcast it on a world stage.
There are several articles out there right now about the romance industry maybe kinda sorta getting some hard won respect. Please share them all. But because everybody deserves a great story with a happy ending. Including new-to-the-wax-family Geri Krotow, and of course, Michelle Obama, too.
Ten tweets. Twelve tweets. Keep it up!
UPDATE: Nearly 36 hours after posting, we are up to 50 tweets and the article was moved last night from being just-another-post to being featured on the Michelle Obama Big News page. How long it will stay there, who knows. Thanks for all the support.
