The PCA/ACA Conference: Where Daisy Bacon and LOVE STORY Will Get Some Respect


I have to say I’m very excited to have a new blog site. It’s like a new toy. But customizing it might be a slow process for the next couple of weeks. I’m working on my presentation on Daisy Bacon for the Popular Cultural Association/American Cultural Association (PCA/ACA) national convention in New Orleans, from April 1 to April 4. The title of my presentation is “Daisy Bacon and LOVE STORY MAGAZINE: The powerful woman editor behind the biggest-selling romance magazine of its time.”  My presentation is scheduled for Saturday, April 4, and is in the Gender and Pulp Studies section.

The study of romance pulps is a very under-represented section of pulp studies. I’m hoping that my presentation will kindle some interest in the topic. I’m also hoping to check out some publishers while I’m there.
