Styles -- Romance/Fantasy/SF and Back Again

I've been thinking a lot about styles. I know fantasy and romance may have a very divergent style, but frankly, I haven't done a big study and I enjoy reading both so I haven't studied genre styles as much as individual author styles. Since Luna has writers from both genres, I think I'll do a study. I am hoping that my style isn't unreadable for fantasy writers.

Off the top of my head, I would say that romance might be laden more with intimate POV, and an abundance of sensual input, more emotional reactions by the heroes and heroines.

But if anyone else wants to comment please do.

Whatever style you chose today, may it work for you!

I've read your Heart books, but not your Lunas, but I don't think it matters, so long a romance is the focus of your romances and vice versa.

But that's me. I'm flexible so long it's a good book.

Thanks, Milady. I've found that romance readers read across more genres than fantasy readers.
