The Romance Writers of America has over 10,000 members and they organize an annual event where thousands of indie authors and publishing companies try and promote their books and generate some sales. This year in San Diego the RWA has partnered with Nielsen for a full day of e-book and digital programming.
The inaugural 2016 Nielsen Romance Summit at RWA, is a groundbreaking event where some of the brightest Romance thought leaders will come together to explore important issues, examine never-before-seen data, and engage in substantial discussion.
There is going to be a ton of speakers from within the romance industry that are going to be leading discussions. Some of the most notable ones are NetGalley’s Lindsey Lochner, Ashleigh Gardner from Wattpad, Sarah Wendell, industry doyenne & founder of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, Porter Anderson of Publishing Perspectives, and number executives from Hachette.
You can check out the full program and list of speakers HERE. I think if you are a self-published romance writer you should visit this event.
