Teresa! An excellent piece. I think of what I read back-in-the-day. And yes, the storylines would be about career, and home, and just general old life and growing up. HARD to sell one of those books to trad publishers though--I'm constantly hit with the phrase "too quiet" when I try to sell. So good that the readers are willing to buy online and pay... maybe you can write a piece about how they post these online... platform? or authors' websites, or... ? Curious about that piece.
