Romance: B(u)y the Book

Show Summary

Romance: B(u)y the Book is an interview show hosted by myLifetime columnist Michelle Buonfiglio devoted to the writers of romance novels. With her infectious personality and a clear love of the genre, Buonfiglio quizzes authors about the their characters, their fantasies and what inspires them to write their books. In one installment, Buonfiglio and Eliosa James, literature professor and romance author, discuss the enduring appeal of the romance novel and the type of woman who reads them. James' real name is Mary Bly and she initially took the pen name of Eliosa James in the fear that her colleagues wouldn't take her seriously as an academic. She went so far as to disguise herself at book functions. These days she has no such fears and discusses the surprising demographics of the romance readership. Other authors who have sat down with Buonfiglio include biologist turned romance author Stephanie Laurens, Beverly Jenkins and Jackie Collins. In addition to the video series, Buonfiglio also pens a Romance: B(u)y the Book blog.
