First it was just some smoke... Authors not entering their books for the RITA award. Where there's smoke, there's apparently fire, as you can read in this post about the Romance Writers of America's RITA award.
But now, this fans those fires: RT bans M/M fiction from reviews and confrence. (Of particular note is the discrimination in their own published advertising guarantee!)
I don't often rant in this blog -- I just post the calls and news -- but it seems to me that the romance world had better get their act together. It's a popular genre, but if things get much hotter, it's gonna blow.
