Long time geek, fangirl, mother, and reader. I've got a lot to say, you might not like it all, but it will be honest and hopefully helpful.

Diana Gabaldon on why people should NOT call Outlander a romance.

Outlander - Diana Gabaldon

"The romance genre has very specific expectations, and this leads to a great deal of predictability. It's very rare to find a good romance writer who can work within that form and still produce a good novel. That's why I try not to let people refer to my own books as romances." 



I thought I'd share since many people are unaware of that the author's stance on the romance genre and people who try to catalogue Outlander as a romance.
