Gather.com Embraces Romance Genre

Those wacky folks at gather.com are at it again -- this time with a competition to find the best romance novels (proving once again, that you can find a definition for anything at Wikipedia).

A few months back, I wrote about their "First Chapters Writing Competition," where community members posted first chapters of fiction works and folks got to vote for the best. Ultimately, two authors got book contracts with Simon and Schuster. Cool beans.

Now, gather.com authors have outdone themselves, with 299 eligible manuscripts received during the entry period, according to the Globe. Without further ado, a smattering of some of the more -- errr -- enlightening titles:
  • aDORKable
  • Beauty and the Geek
  • Me, Myself and Murphy's Law
  • Murder under the Mistletoe
  • Not at the Office
  • Operation Escape Goat
  • Ovarian Warrior
  • Painting Naked
  • Peace, Love and Chocolate
  • Even Hippos can Drown
  • Fifty is Nifty
  • Safe Sex and Home Repair
And my personal favorite: Yours 'til Niagara Falls!
