I think most Christian authors are acquainted with the “Love finds you in…” some city in the United States, correct? Honestly I thought it was a good idea. Even though I am not fond of romance, I think it’s neat that American authors are writing about all fifty-one states.
That’s right I said, fifty-one states, because apparently we have now added Prince Edward Island into the Union. The novel Love Finds You in Prince Edward Island, Canada was published recently into the US State romance series. Anyone else kind of perturbed by this? Or the fact that they have written about many “States” such as Hawaii (the Hawaii novel was set in 1880’s Hawaii) before they were even states. Even though they were eventually added into the Union, how can you publish those into the US Romance series when at that time they were not yet apart of the Union??? At least write about the state after it was added to the Union so that it can accurately be apart of the US Romance series.
Not to mention that with this Love Finds You series there is as usually higher percentage of books written about Texas and the Western States than there was about the Midwest. I guess it’s okay to overlook the Midwest even though some of the States joined the Union before Texas did. And Indiana in 2016 will be celebrating our bicentennial and I believe Ohio celebrated theirs in 2004. But yes, forget about the Midwest, we’re obviously not important enough to remember. So let’s just write about Prince Edward Island instead.
Yep, makes perfect sense if you don’t think about it.
