"Could you give me a more precise idea as to what qualifies a story as an indie romance? I know in movie genre, it is an independent film, but what does it mean for a book? I might be interested in this genre as the novel I have written is a…"

Here is a romance definition that most goes by.  The plot of a romance centers around a couple that fall in love and have a “happily ever after” ending. This is a must; there are no exceptions. If your couple is not happily in love and together at the end of your book, it’s not a romance. It might be a love story (in which case, it would go under women’s fiction) but a romance has to have a "happily ever after." You can have subplots, but the main plotline must be about the couple’s romance. Now, there are so many subgenres to the Romance genre (many totally unique to romance) that I will do a separate post on these next week, so stay tuned.
