Social networking for romance readers
We need your nominations! The Festival of Romance will be presenting awards this year for the first time to the most innovative publishers of romantic fiction and the best literary agents in the genre.
Which industry professionals do you have think have contributed the most to shaping and promoting the genre? Please post your nominations here, or you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd like to nominate Astraea Press - specialist 'sweet clean' romance publishers are hard to find and they have a great list and are very professional with fab stories and wonderful covers.
I'd like to nominate Choc Lit Publishers for their innovation and courage. They aren't afraid to publish books which differ from the norm. The romances are fresh and the writing always so good.
I simply have to nominate Xcite Books (an imprint of Accent Press).
They are award-winning British erotic Fiction publishers who are making a big splash in an area often dominated by much larger publishers. They are prepared to give new writers a chance and want to work with their authors to develop them as a brand for the long-term game. That counts for a lot these days, in my book. They deserve (and are gettting) growing respect in their corner of a tough, competitive industry.
Oh, and did I mention, they published my debut novel - PA Exposé - http://goo.gl/7Jz9G ?
