The Florida Library Association and Southwest Florida Romance Writers announce an informal—and informative—symposium for state librarians to discuss the Romance Industry on February 15th. “Romancing the Reader” will offer you insight into the romance market, its trends, proponents, and nuances. It will introduce you to some of its most-talented authors including NYT Bestseller Jaime Rush and RITA-Award Winner, Linnea Sinclair.
Romance shelves—and romance readers!—are changing. With the explosion of cross-genre romances, it’s a veritable smorgasbord out there and more than love makes the romance-reader world go ‘round. Psychic phenomenon, starships, steampunk, secret agents… everything’s possible and happening now between the pages of today’s romance novel.
Occupying over 52% of the fiction industry, romance sells. Why? Because satisfaction is guaranteed. Regardless of the peril or price, romance readers know good will triumph over evil, love will prevail, and as the last page turns, the characters will live Happily Ever After. Learn how the market is evolving and how to help your readers find the HEA they are looking for. Come join the Florida Library Network and a panel of national best-selling authors in a fun and educative session.”
