Hmmm. How Do You Suppose Amish Kids' Books Would Do?

The Wall Street Journal reports on "bonnet books" or Amish love stories in They're No Bodice Rippers, But Amish Romances Are Hot. As I was reading the article, I wondered if someone could become successful with Amish kids' books.

Then I wondered about mixing in vampires with the Amish love stories. Because vampires always make everything better.

Oh, GEEZ; I guess we could always add ZOMBIES to the mix. Because zombies, vampires, and Amish kids are just what MAKE romance.

Good grief.

I thought of suggesting zombies, but they aren't very erotic, while vampires just scream sexuality. So I thought they'd work better in a romance.

Darn it; there was a pretty bad movie from the 80s, maybe 90s, about a guy who had been Amish/Mennonite, left home, now returned with his big city wife to the farm, and there was shunning, and then the living room floor opened up and demons came out. Cannot remember the title or actors. No vampires, though. Just demons, maybe Satan.

Liz, the movie is "Deadly Blessing" 1981. Ernest Borgnine, Sharon Stone, Lois Nettleton, Lisa Hartman are some of the actors. I
