Share Your Book with Avon Romance Readers

Avon Romance has launched a new site called Share Your Book, a chance for all kinds of writers to get feedback from romance readers and find new fans by posting excerpts. Here’s how it works:

Share Your Book is a unique experience: contributors can receive comments and critiques from their peers, as well as Avon editors, who will pop into the forum with occasional advice on individual submissions.  Romance enthusiasts are thrilled that their excerpts live alongside those published by Avon’s authors, who also use the site to promote their own books.  Visitors to the site “favorite” the submissions so readers and editors can easily see which are the most popular.

Submit your book to the free site at this link. If you are trying to get a manuscript published, you can also submit your book for consideration by the Avon Impulse imprint editors.
