Alongside our recent Buzz Books 2021: fall / winter sampler, our Buzz Books 2021: Romance the collection returns for a sixth year. Buzz Books 2021: Romance is available now, with 10 exclusive pre-release clips.
This year’s edition features more contemporary romance than ever before, along with more diverse voices of imprints such as Zebra. Powerful actors such as Kat Martin and Beth Reekles, author of The kissing booth, now a Netflix movie, fan favorites Therese Beharrie and Marcella Bell, these authors are bestselling and award winning. Learn about early romance writers Ali Hazelwood and Jean Meltzer, then complete your reading list with LGBTQ titles from our earliest male romance writers: Kosoko Jackson and Timothy Janovsky. Finally, get spooky with the romantic witch stories of Elizabeth Bass and Lana Harper.
The collection is already receiving an enthusiastic reception. As usual, the “commercial edition” is available from Edelweiss and Netgalley with additional advertising and marketing information as well as clicks to request full individual galleys. The consumer edition is also ready to download from any e-book store of your choice (Kindle, Nook, Apple Books, Google Play, and Kobo.)
