Romance Matters – Making the genre more credible.

This is a direct appeal from Barbara Vey at Publishers Weekly

Love of Romance

Dear Friends in Publishing,

Over the past 6 1/2 years, I have listened carefully to what you’ve had to say. The one thing I heard over and over again was how romance never received any respect. Many of you were thrilled when I started writing my blog because it seemed to make your genre more credible in PW’s eyes.

Well, I finally have managed to get a PW Romance Webcast off the ground. In the past, PW has done every other genre and even webcasts on Faith and Yarn that were highly successful.

The time has come for everyone to help support the romance genre. I really need everybody to sign up for the webcast (Sept. 17th Noon EST). Signing up does not obligate you to listen to the webcast. You can either listen live or later on iTunes if you’d like. It is absolutely free and listeners have a chance to win giveaways (because Romance is best at that!).

As you all know, everything is a numbers game, so we need the numbers. I’m attaching the logo with all the information in case anyone wants to use it on their websites, blogs or social media.

Here’s the link:

Please help me show everyone why romance is number one by registering for webcast and feel free to forward this email. It’s kind of like an election. Every single registration counts.

Thanks so much for your support over the years and please let me know if you have any questions.
