Who Writes and Reads Romantic Fiction?
I’ve joined the Romantic Novelists Association and took part in their 2014 Annual Conference. Both the Association and the conference are valuable, the latter providing an interesting mix of practical tips (how to self-publish, attract an agent, ideas about Plot, Location, and Characterisation); some theoretical background (the Chemistry of Reading, universal elements of the genre); and the opportunity to meet agents, editors and publishers. I was fortunate to be able to chat with Hazel Cushion, the founder of Accent Press and was highly impressed with how the company works and their future plans. I’m looking forward to working with them.
