HistoricalRomance.Love is a new website for fans of Romance from the Admins of the Historical Romance Book Club group on Facebook. While we are abundantly focused on Historical Romance, we plan to have selections from across the romance genre, such as contemporary, steampunk, and fantasy romance. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment and are committed to featuring diverse authors for diverse audiences.
The romance novel industry, quite obviously, wouldn’t be what it is without the talented authors who contribute to it. Our aim is two fold: To give independent authors a much needed platform to gain exposure, and to give more wonderful entertainment to their devoted readers. We work hard to engage authors at all levels in order to offer readers the best selection of romantic and historical content.
Following the initial launch, we will share every post that is published along the same channels mentioned above.
The short answer is: not yet. Currently, HistoricalRomance.Love is a 100% volunteer operation. The admins/owners of HistoricalRomance.Love are contributing our own time and money into building this site. Our contributors are also an amazing team of volunteers. Until we generate revenue, we are “paying” our volunteers in exposure, ad space, bio pages, and book reviews.
What happens if/when we do begin making money? First, we will cover the cost and upkeep of the website. That includes hosting, maintenence, and advertisment costs, as well as a few other things. Afterall, we can’t give anyone a platform if we can’t keep the site up and running. Second, we will pay our contributors for their contributions. Third, we pay ourselves.
This is our guarantee to you: We don’t get paid, until you get paid.
In short, everything. If it has to do with romance novels or historical time periods, we want to feature it.
In particular, we are looking for:
