Love and Chocolate Welcomes my first guest ever - Milaya Marks!

Today, Milaya's book, Spanish Heat, is released by Wild Rose Press under the Wilder Rose imprint. I'm very honoured to Have Milaya here, in person, to tell us about how to find Electronic Markets for Romances. Have a look at her cover. Isn't it great? I think he looks like Tom Cruises younger, better looking brother!

Erotic romance author Milaya Marks’ Spanish Heat is now available from The Wilder Rose Press. Visit Milaya online at or follow her on Twitter at @MilayaMarks.

Purchase Spanish Heat from Wild Rose or DigiBooksCafe.
Now, enough from me, and over to Milaya.

Finding Electronic Markets for Romances
by Milaya Marks.

Finding electronic markets for romances is easy if you know where to look. A quick browse around websites, blogs, ezines, forums, loops and more all offer romance authors the chance to learn more about potential online homes for their writing.

Simple Google searches can be a great way to find markets for romances. Searching “romance epublisher”, “romance publisher”, “romance ebooks” and “romance anthologies” can all yield results. Setting up Google alerts for these same phrases will bring new information to your email inbox daily without you having to do any extra work.

Many existing organisations also keep lists of publishers - for good or bad. The Romance Writers of America (, the Romantic Novelists Association ( and Romance Writers of Australia ( might all be able to offer members more information about electronic markets.

Websites like Romantic Times ( and blogs like Dear Author ( can also be useful research tools if you look at who publishes the ebooks which are reviewed. Similarly, electronic book services like eBooks (, Books On Board ( and All Romance EBooks ( can be research goldmines as they sell ebooks from a variety of publishers.

Finally, don’t forget general writing sites like WOW! Women on Writing (, Inkwell Writers ( and Funds for Writers ( These sites all offer free email newsletters detailing markets and competitions, some for all writers and some specifically for romance writers.

Finding electronic markets for romance isn’t hard, but it may take a bit of Web browsing. Enjoy it!
