FUNNY - Another Man's Take On Romance Novels: Epic Black Car

What I'm about to share with you is courtesy of my BFF Lacey over at The Delusional Diaries. She's always finding the most hilarious things online which she of course, shares with me. Straight away I knew it would be a perfect addition to my Passion Palooza so here it is. The person who put together this blog goes by the aka The Epic Black Car and he is soooo funny! The post was so popular he followed it up with a post about his reaction to actually reading a romance novel and both had me and Lacey snorting! I'll share the first parts of them and then you can click through to his site. Hope you get a kick out of them...




Romance Novelists Are Secret, Epic Army of Man Boosters

Let it be known: we men must rethink our natural manly instinct that romance novelists are something to avoid, like SEX AND THE CITY 2, which is indeed worthy of scorn, and woe unto any man whose girlfriend or wife coerced them into wasting two hours of their life to see that stupid thing. No bribe is sufficient.

Published romance novelists have found the Epic Black Car blog, posted comments and sent me e-mails — and they are not only hilarious, but many can write circles around the 6.57 gazillion reporters, writers and novelists I know. Also — and most importantly — they CELEBRATE AND ADORE MEN, which we should encourage.

I have thought about this, and it makes sense. These women are more talented than most folks writing about elves and spaceships, or elves riding spaceships, not because of the subject matter, but because there is so much freaking competition with romance novels.

It’s like throwing 10,000 authors into the Thunderdome, tossing in a single chainsaw and refusing to unlock the door until there’s only one woman left. By definition, that woman is going to kick tail. She will be a writing goddess.

One Man. One Romance Novel. One bottle of Bourbon

I vowed to read a romance novel, you made suggestions and debated the worthiness of various novels in the comments. And then you voted. So I journeyed in the Epic Black Car to a local store of books, where you hand them pieces of paper decorated with dead presidents and walk out the door with 3.6 metric tons of books. Sometimes, I rent a U Haul.

Though my favorite bookstore of all time is Powell’s in Portland, as it is giant and independent and impressively badass, Portland is far, far away from my secret lair. I went to Borders, which has apparently decided to lump all books into four categories: Mystery/Thriller, Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Literature, which means “everything else.”

I couldn’t find the winning book in Romance, but this book did not exactly come out last month, so maybe they didn’t have it in stock. No. They did.

Best Fabio Romance Cover of ALL TIME

What is the most amazing, over-the-top Fabio romance cover OF ALL TIME?

We are talking about Fabio here, so there is an embarrassment of riches. How can we pick one masterpiece when everything the Italian Master of Romance has done with the cover of novels is so good?

I wanted to do crazy sci-fi and fantasy covers first. But they are surprisingly monotonous, with the difference between (1) a great cover and (2) a campy cover and (3) an insane cover being a matter of taste, really, and of what cup size you want your robot / elven princess / barbarian warrior woman to have, and whether she should be a loyal sidekick, at the feet of the male hero, or the heroine who’s busy cutting off the heads of trolls or whatever.

Ah, my spies told me about this.

I am honored and flattered.

Later, I'll write a post on my silly blog about your blog -- which I find entertaining -- because THAT'S HOW I ROLL.
