Romance tends to be underestimated in the shuffle of collection development, readers’ advisory, and publishing--despite comprising 23% of the US fiction market. We are bringing all aspects to the forefront with our expert panel of editors, reviewers, and authors to discuss trends in romance, traditional and self-publishing, review sources, and much more.


Mary Altman, Editor at Sourcebooks Casablanca
Bobbi Dumas, freelance writer and book reviewer for several mainstream publications.
Amy Sandas, author
Melonie Johnson, author
Suleikha Snyder, author
Jennifer Prokop, book reviewer
Panel Moderator: Susan Maguire, Senior Editor for Collection Management and Library Outreach at Booklist
