I thought you might like an update on the blog post/rant I did last week about a teacher who is also an erotic romance author being forced into the spotlight and taken to task by a couple of parents. Barbara Vey of Publisher’s Weekly has published a follow-up about the fiasco and given Judy May a chance to respond. You can read the entire article here (and I encourage you to go over and read the entire thing) but here’s a small snippet:
The support I have received from around the world has been unbelievable. Two complete strangers started a support page for me; and, the last time I checked, it had over 9000 “like” hits. However, it’s been the support from my current students, many, many former students, and their parents that has humbled me and warmed my heart. I was always pretty sure I was respected, but the outpouring of support from “my kids” has brought tears to my eyes more than once. They have rocked my world.
Also, the support of the romance community, both authors and readers, has been overwhelming. So, I want to thank everyone who has joined me on this wild ride from the bottom of my heart. You are all truly wonderful people.
And, not to worry. I am not going to lose my teaching job over this.
