What is Bookstore Romance Day?

Bookstore Romance Day is a day designed to give independent bookstores an opportunity to celebrate Romance fiction — its books, readers, and writers — and to strengthen the relationships between bookstores and the Romance community.

According to Publishers Weekly,

Bookstore Romance Day bets on the H.E.A. (Happily Ever After) with almost 400 bookstores planning to participate in a combination of virtual programming and national in-store events.

According to the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association,

If you’re a bookstore that sells Romance in any form, from Classics to YA to those books we all think of as “Romance” or anything in-between, and would like to participate in the first Bookstore Romance Day on August 20, 2022, find out how you can participate.

How exciting is that?

Romance Editing Projects

I love all things “sweet romance,” meaning Christian titles from authors like Karen Kingsbury, and Amish titles from authors such as Beverly Lewis.

Thankfully, good old-fashioned love stories will always be alive and well because readers like me enjoy the paperback versions and movie adaptations. The Princess Bride movie was adapted from a novel of the same name. Same for The Notebook. So were Pride & Prejudice, The Fault in Our Stars, Little Women, and Dear John.

I’ve edited my fair share of romance books, each one poignant in its own way. Sometimes even memoirs are a type of romance, especially when a widowed author writes against the backdrop of an amazing marriage.
