Rom Fan

Only the self-absorbed seem to move forward in Hollywood these days… so I started a blog.

I thought I’d also coin the term for a newish/oldish genre –  Rom Fan – just to fully embrace my new egomaniacal pursuit.

“Romantic Fantasy…?” you say. It slips right off the tongue! A guilty pleasure for a non-young adult, though one at heart. Rom Fan’s are more than just Twilight, which in my opinion is poorly written and not the best example of the genre, just the most successful.House of Night is wonderful! It is terribly written and stuffed full of pop culture that will be obsolete in the next few moments. Writer’s note: It’s best to just come up with your own slang that way it won’t ever be passe. Clockwork Orange or Clueless are good examples.However, the series starting with Marked grabs you by the balls and won’t let go. It’s a roller coaster story that had me hooked on page one, it’s jammed packed with action, great characters and unique mythology. My fingers are crossed that my friend Michael will get this one up. Check out the HON website, it’s a great example of effective and integrated transmedia storytelling.
