I come not to praise romance, but to bury it...

That seems to be the questionably inspiring aim of Good Mourning Publishing.

They trumpet the end of traditional romance stories.  So if Good Mourning supports "the best and most unique love stories that cover the spectrum of sexualities and cultures indiscriminately" one can only assume traditional romance is (in their estimation) bad, derivative and bigoted.

How true that is depends, I suppose, on which publishers you feel make up traditional romance.
