Why DSW?

The site's name comes from a Nathaniel Hawthorne quote. Way back in 1855, the famous author of The Scarlet Letter complained that “America is now wholly given over to a damned mob of scribbling women, and I should have no chance of success while the public taste is occupied with their trash--and should be ashamed of myself if I did succeed.”

Admittedly, using this quote is a nod to our nerdy side. However, we also reference it because we delight in the popularity (and power) of “scribbling women.” We also believe that the novels we write are uplifting and important (not trash!).

As the tagline on the site indicates, we are brainy bombshells who write red-hot romance. We write about the triumphs and challenges of the romance novelist’s life. To celebrate the return of DSW, we will have a plethora of new posts planned for this week.

Happy reading!

Yay! Turns out I've read 28 romance novels since Jan 1st. Gosh, can you tell I REALLY can't wait for my husband to come home? I think these novels are important, uplifting, and just plain delightful. Three cheers for the damned scribbling women!

I love Kate Diamond. I have been trying to get her to also write Screenplays. Maybe I can seduce her to the dark side eventually.

Love the blog, and glad you're back! And thanks for the explanation on the name - I always thought it was perfectly wonderful, but it's even better with the back story. Will you be posting yummy bits of your upcoming stories?
