Someone just asked me what was happening in the Christian romance market. As the position of romance seems to change from year to year, I thought it might be interesting to note where the romance genres showed up on the listing of most popular topics from the market guide in the current edition as compared to the 2009 edition which is currently in the works.

In the 2008 edition, from a listing of 150 topics, romance showed up like this:

90. Romance
94. Mystery Romance
100. Historical Romance
120. Frontier Romance

By comparison, in the 2009 edition, with 151 topics, they came out this way:

93. Historical Romance
94. Mystery Romance
95. Romance
116. Frontier Romance
