June 8 2009 Romance Novels Newsletter


Hello, and welcome back! School has ended here, so the kids are all home and looking for things to entertain them. At least mine haven't yet said they're bored. But I know it's coming. It's only a matter of time. I, however, have no time to be bored: I have an absolutely terrific (and towering!) stack of June romances here on my desk, and I've done a fair bit of reading from that stack already.

I also just finished posting the May reviews in the past few days, so if you haven't been by the site lately, you've missed quite a lot, like the rest of the May reviews: The Midwife's Glass Slipper, On the Prowl, To Beguile a Beast, Bound to Please, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, What Would Jane Austen Do?, Demon Can't Help It, and Too Hot to Handle. As well as the first of the June reviews: Real Men Last All Night and Watch Over Me. I hope to get at least one more of the June reviews posted before this week is out, maybe even two if I'm lucky with my time the rest of the week.

I'm still hoping that more of you will participate in this year's Romance Reader Survey. It's been years since we did our last one, and it's past time for an update. I have it posted in both Romance Novels Forums, but you do need to be registered in one or the other to participate. As always, registration is free, so please join us. Besides getting to make your thoughts known on the state of romance novels today, you'll get to participate in discussions with other readers, and even the occasional giveaway. You can take our survey either here or here, but please hurry. I have set these to close at the end of June, 2009, and it would be great to have a lot of respondents for this.

I just came back last weekend from the annual Book Expo America in New York City, and, while I got to meet some great authors, I was a little disappointed with the romance showing in general. It seemed that even the RWA booth was lacking this time. I'm not sure if it was the economy keeping authors and publishers away, but maybe next year will be a better display of our genre? I sure hope so, because I look forward to BEA very, very much. BEA is always a lot of fun, but it would be even more fun with more romance. Hopefully Kensington will have a booth there again next year. And all of the romance publishers will bring more of their romance authors!

Until next time, happy reading and writing!

Elizabeth, Romance Novels Host
