Romance tends to be underestimated in the shuffle of collection development, readers' advisory, and publishing--despite comprising 23% of the US fiction market. We are bringing all aspects to the forefront with our expert panel of editors, reviewers, and authors to discuss trends in romance, traditional and self-publishing, review sources, and much more.
