Along with our Buzz Books 2020: Fall/Winter sampler, our Buzz Books 2020: Romance collection returns for a fifth year. With publishers withdrawing from this year’s RWA well before the pandemic was an issue, we knew authors and publishers would need launch and discovery platforms more than ever. Buzz Books 2020: Romance is available now, with 14 exclusive pre-publication excerpts.
This year’s edition features more contemporary romance than ever before, as well as more diverse voices, from imprints such as Carina, Dafina, and Zebra. It includes titles from Devon Daniels, Melissa Ferguson, Brenda Jackson, Vanessa Riley, Mona Shroff, and more.
The collection is already receiving an enthusiastic reception. As usual, the “trade edition” is available from Edelweiss and NetGalley, with additional publicity and marketing info along with click-throughs to request full individual galleys. The consumer edition is also ready for download at your ebookstore of choice (Kindle, Nook, Apple Books, Google Play, and Kobo.)
