Ooowee! I am excited to announce that I have started up a group on Facebook specifically for romance readers and writers. Whether you are just getting started in writing, are an accomplished author, or you love to read romances and erotic romance, this group is for you.
My purpose for setting up the group was simple. I was looking around on Facebook for some groups to join to promote myself when I get my first novel published. I did find some fine groups no doubt, but some groups were closed groups which did make any sense to me as the purpose I wanted in a group was to be able to promote to a general audience. Another thing was groups requiring that members participate in discussions in order to post about their books.
I simply wanted a group for anybody to be able to promote their books, whether their first or their hundredth book, and for readers to be able to use the group without having to join and be able, when they click on the group, to see books and more books available to them to their hearts’ content.
I also wanted a group which did not have the appearance of an adult bookstore and which people would not be shy or ashamed about checking out. Yes, some of our offerings will have strong sexual content, and some will not. Regardless of the content of any author’s offerings, the look of the place needs to cater to the average reader where they can not only find something to read for a teenage daughter, but also find something steamy and sinful if that is their taste, without feeling sleazy while looking around the place.
In order to accomplish all of this, I started my own group on Facebook. Membership in the group has started off very well. Myself and other members are enthusiastic about it. Browse through the group as a guest or join in to promote your work, talk with authors, or start or join in a discussion. There are no requirements; it’s your group as you see fit to use it.
