I took a poll today on my Facebook author page.
I asked if people prefer stories that had romance in them or stories without romance. I also stipulated that 'had romance in them' meant romance as a side story, not as the main plot.
Really, I shouldn't have been surprised at the results, knowing people as I do.
The results were about 26 out of 27 people preferred stories with romance in them to stories without romance. Interesting, huh?
And no. I wasn't the one who said no romance!
This may or may not influence my later writing. You might have noticed a distinct lack of romance in Precisely Terminated, but Monica really didn't have time for such things, and she's not exactly attractive, having starved much of her life. ;) Poor thing.
