Hi! I am Amy the editor for the Prime Time site and I have been meaning to join this forum for a while now as I am a published romance author. I love reading and discussing and I would really love to hear the readers take on romance novels and everything that goes along with it! So this is my introduction. If you would like to know about me as a writer, my webpage is amyromine-dot-com.

Cannot wait to talk with you all!

Hi, Thomas, and welcome.

My first suggestion is find a writers' group local to you. I know when I was starting out, that was an enormous help to me, being able to meet face to face with other writers of varying experiences. The second suggestion I have is to read, read, read, read everything you can get your hands on in the areas you intend to write. Knowing what's selling to publishers in your area(s) of interest is a great way to work on one's own writing.

Hi, everyone My name is R.L. Mathewson. I'm a stay at home mom as well as an author of romance novels, contemporary and paranormal. I've been an avid romance novel reader now for going on three years. Before I stumbled on a book by Julia Quinn I read pretty much anything and everything. I'll admit that I had a bit of a snobbish view of romance novels, but I think that had a lot to do with the covers and how people I knew viewed them. I was pleasantly surprised when I read her books. They were witty, sweet, fun and sucked me in. For a while I read novels and couldn't help but wonder about the what ifs..... So one day I started writing and several months later I was done. I took one look at my book and gagged. It was complete garbage, but great practice. I kept at it until finally I had a book I loved. Now that's what I do. I love creating stories that put a smile on someone's face and I love the fact that to keep my skills up I have to read, a lot. It's a good excuse to keep my nose buried in a book. Well, that's me.

Elizabeth, My name is Cathy and I recently epublished my mother's romance, &quot;Divided Pathways&quot;, on Amazon.com. I would love to have some of your members review it. What do I need to do? I published this novel to fulfill a promise I made before my mother passed away. Epublishing allowed me to do this, but I am lost once it was put up. I would also love any suggestions from your members on how I might get the word out. Thanks.

Welcome, Lori!

If you haven't wandered over to the main site yet ( Romance Novels ), you may want to do that. Take a look through some of the reviews, perhaps, or, under the subjects, I have some of the reviews divided into category, so you can take a peek at those if you're more interested in one sub-genre of romance than another.

And if you tell us what sort of romance novels you like to read, I'm sure we can get you started with some suggestions.
