As the authors and series I haven’t read on the paranormal aisle get smaller, I’ve taken to hunting down my favorite authors’ work in other genres. There are ten times more books on the historical romance shelves than the paranormal shelves. Why? They’re as historically accurate as the paranormal are real, so it can’t be snobbery. The formulas are the same. The only difference is that paranormal uses woo-woo to justify plot silliness. Historical just pretends the characters and twists are believable.
Historical romance authors, there are paranormal writers among you. Take their hand and follow them to the fun of witches, vampires and shifters. Come to the dark side. We take ourselves far less seriously.
