Scott Eagan on Why the Romance Genre is Here to Stay

For anyone who has ever been asked why they read, write, publish, or represent Romance writing, Scott Eagan explains why the (extremely broad) genre endures, why he represents romance writers and what readers get out of it.

Authors in romance should be amazingly proud of the work they are doing. This is far from an easy task to take on. Telling stories that have to mirror real human emotions and feelings is a tough challenge. In the end, the success of the storytelling doesn't come down to amazing graphics or world building, but the ability of that author to accurately portray a human emotions and feelings at the basic natural level.
