Hi, I'm new to the group. I am currently writing a series of romance novellas that I intend self-publishing. Can anyone tell me how to make the most of being in this group. Writing is a long lonely journey and sharing that journey with like minded writers would be fantastic.
Janet TP pretty much covered it! This site works on a (informal, but very much serious and in place) reciprocate review system. Most writers you review will return the favour. Some won't, and it all depends on you whether you still want to review their work if you want to. As Janet said, you may not always find a lot of Romance going around, so you will need to read/review outside of your preferred genre. It's not a bad thing at all though. I've had really good comments/suggestions from people that don't read Romance and have learned a lot from them too.
Also, you're more than welcome to ask any question in the forum. We're the best group to get feedback on Romance related topics, but won't be the widest exposure out here. For example, there's a specific group for writing tips and advice. The Premium Forum is by far the largest, but things can get personal sometimes - we're an opinionated bunch. Depending on whether you don't mind or would want to avoid that, that's also a good place to get varying opinions and responses.
Welcome to the Romance group! If you have any specific questions, let us know!
