Eighty-five new Amish romance novels were published in 2012 alone; that is about one every four days. (And I arrived at those numbers using a very conservative definition of “Amish romance novel”; depending which books you count, that number would be much higher.) In 2002, only two new Amish romance novels were published. On a recent Christian fiction bestseller list, five of the top ten titles were Amish. And the top three novelists of Amish fiction have sold over 24 million books.
