Do you write romance? Maybe you know a romance novelist. Or perhaps you love reading romances as much as I do. Whatever your reason for visiting Romance Writers on the Journey, I’m glad you’re here. It’s great to have you ladies–and the occasional brave man–stop by. I hope you’ll come back often.
I started this blog as a way to connect with others who share my love of romance and long to see their names on the covers of published romance novels one day. I don’t claim to be an expert by any means, but I know some awesome romance novelists who have a great deal to offer and are willing to share it with you.
Many sites post excellent interviews with multi-published authors. The primary focus at Romance Writers on the Journey, however, is to give you the opportunity to meet recently discovered debut romance authors and equally talented but not-yet-published romance novelists. Nothing gives me greater joy than to encourage those who are close to signing that first contract and those who will soon hold their debut romance novels in their hands.
Lots of whooping and hollering goes on around here as we celebrate with those who’ve realized their dream and have seen or will soon see their names on the cover of a book. We’re encouraged as we read stories of perseverance that paid off.
Just as inspiring, though, are the stories of those novelists weathering the hills and valleys on the path to publication who are doing all they can to enjoy the journey. Their devotion to the writing craft and their dedication in the face of disappointments serve as examples for the rest of us.
I’d love to hear from you. My email address is in the sidebar. ~ Keli
