Ever wanted to go to a @RomanceFestival but it was too far away? Or cost too much? Too much time?
The wonderful team at Harper Impulse have come up with an ingenious solution -- a  FREE digital Romance Festival. At last a romance festival you can attend in your p.j.s!
Harlequin Mills and Boon will be there -- both editors and authors. Other publishers include Piatkus, Avon UK, Avon US, Avon Impulse, Carina as well as indie authors. The list of authors will be published shortly. Although it is UK based, it is open globally as Romance is truly worldwide.

It is free but you must be registered. You can find out how to register here. Or you can follow @romancefestival on twitter. The hashtag for the event is #romance14

  1. I'm afraid I'll be at a real-life UK romance festival that weekend -- the UK GBLT Meet in Bristol. It's a shame they clash, because I would have enjoyed attending this one!
