Red Romance author Lakshmi Palecanda who penned ‘Playing at love’ enjoys a good romance. She had this to say of her experience of judging the entries to our contest.
The romance series caters to Indian readers, and features heroes/heroines in familiar cultural milieu. There is so much available in the international market, yet so far, there has been no home-grown romantic series. Red is simple, feel-good fiction, much like watching a Bollywood or a Kollywood romance. It caters to varied age-groups as well.
