Lately, you may have noticed a few hiccups here at Sweet Savage Flame. For that, we owe our readers an apology and sincerest gratitude for your patience.
Thank You for Understanding
Dear Readers of Sweet Savage Flame,
You may have noticed some irregularities in some of our latest posts. To that end, I must apologize for the incomplete articles recently uploaded to the website.
I’m the creator of and primary contributor to this blog and the web developer. I take full responsibility for these errors. I want to express my sincerest apologies to all of you who have taken the time to visit and read Sweet Savage Flame.
Unfortunately, due to my current health status and other factors, I have not been able to keep up with the demands of running the blog as efficiently as I would like. Consequently, some posts have been published prematurely without undergoing proper proofreading and editing.
I’ve been open about my struggles with ADHD and lupus. Sadly, I haven’t given my health the proper attention I should have, leading to my diabetes diagnosis. It’s a reality that I must deal with now.
As some of you may be aware, I have had two work-in-progress projects on hold for a while now. Additionally, I’m taking part in a massive undertaking: partnering with several groups to create a book about the evolution of paperback romance covers. This will be an in-depth study of the cover artists, photographers, designers, models, and styles used by publishers and imprints, which involves research, interviews, writing, and obtaining legal rights.
I’m passionate about this project and delighted to see that romance novels are finally being recognized for their craftsmanship in cover design. Fans want a comprehensive resource on this topic, and this book offers just that. It’s surprising there hasn’t been more focus on the stories behind the beautiful romance cover art created by so many renowned and respected illustrators.
It seems like a missed opportunity, given the caliber of these artists, as many other genres, such as pulp and comic books, have had a lot of attention dedicated to their artwork. I’m frustrated with the limited sources on romance covers and feel it’s a topic that deserves more recognition.
That’s why I’m striving to create an extensive overview of this subject to honor its history.

I deeply appreciate all those who have been so encouraging in the last two years. Your readership is invaluable to me, and Sweet Savage Flame must provide content of the highest caliber in the future.
