I am beyond thrilled to announce that I will be hosting the first PW romance webcast.  For The Love of Romance will be an hour long chat on September 17th at 1 p.m. EST and include editors from Harlequin, Sourcebooks and Kensington.

Some of the topics we will discuss are what makes for a good hero or heroine, editors are always asking for fresh and new ideas so what makes something fresh for you, how are publishers attracting new authors in this digital age and what’s hot right now?  But I’m always looking for new ideas, so if you have burning questions, let me know.

While the show is live, you will be able to type in questions that I’ll ask the panelists.  Not only that but knowing these publishers, there will be amazing giveaways and you will be entered just for registering.

Register here and I’ll be looking forward to your feedback.  On Twitter, we will be using the hashtag #RomanceReads.

Bottom Line:  We all love romance, now let’s prove it.

    It would be nice to hear from the early authors who helped make the Romance genre
    what it is today. Several of us began in the mid-1970s, discovered by editor, Nancy
    Coffey, and are still publishing today, i.e. Johanna Lindsay, Jude Devereaux, Shirlee
    Busbee, and moi, Bertrice Small.. Also still working from that long-ago time are
    Roberta Gellis, Jennifer Blake, Janelle Taylor, among others. Editors today seem to believe that
    they “invented” the romance genre. They didn’t.. Those women known as “The
    Avon Ladies” did., and I’m proud to have been one of them.

    If I sound a bit grumpy it’s because every time there is an interest in this genre
    we are pushed further into the mists of time, and ignored. I absolutely refuse
    to have those of us who began this whole wonderful genre ignored any more!
    Without us this genre would not have taken off as it did, and grown into its
    many sub-genres. Without us you wouldn’t have Romantic Times or RWA..
    Think about it.

      That’s a great idea for a webcast. I’d love to hear from my favorite authors who I started out with in Romance. Anyone who has ever met you Bertice, could never forget you. :)
