Why do some romance authors, once they are "saved" by religion, turn around and denounce their previous books and even their former readers in shockingly intolerant terms? Like "trash", "sinners", et cetera?
I mean, if they want to change their lives, so be it, but it does seem like really bad manners to condemn the very people that helped them come that far in their career as sinners or readers of "trash", "porn", and such. At least Anne Rice did it right by focusing her writing on Jesus but never condemning fans of her vampire books. Some saved romance authors could learn something from her. What's the point in alienating people who were once fans of them?
Of course, it isn't just saved authors who are guilty of this. Some authors, once they become big-time "respectable" mystery/crime authors, reacted vehemently to any mention of their past, to the point of even reissuing old romance novels with all romantic elements in them ruthless excised to make them more "respectable". Why do they even write romance if they are so embarrassed by the taint of the genre? And these authors don't even have Jesus has an excuse for their behavior. Weird.
