Blog Policy

The I Love Romance Blog, or ILRB (as I love my abbreviations), was built in order to talk about the different facets of romantic relationships and to discuss romance novels. Posts can take the form of new release features, cover reveals, romantic thought posts or romantic poetry, interviews (mainly character interviews, though I am open to other kinds), guests posts about romance or romance writing, book giveaways and other events. As I am an author as well, I occasionally post about my own romance novels.

We always want to hear from readers! Recently we started a new feature titled ‘What Does Romance Mean to Me?’, in which we get a take from any reader of romance, regarding how reading romance novels has shaped his or her life. You do not need to be an author to write a guest post for this feature! ♥

Plus, we have another feature coming soon, titled ‘Heroes & Heroines’. With this type of guest post, authors will tell us about one of their characters from a book. It doesn’t need to be from a character’s perspective, though that’s a possibility. It could simply be a casual approach on how the character was developed, what was it about the character’s personality that kept the author up at night, what parts of their story demanded to be told…that kind of thing.

Please feel free to contact me if you have a creative idea for a romantic post, or if you’re an author who would like one of these features for your book, at marieannlavender@gmail.com

***Note:  At this time, my schedule is full and does not allow me to consider writing official book reviews for your books on this blog. Requests for such reviews will be politely denied, no exceptions (The A to Z Challenge posts in April 2016 were not built from book review requests from authors, but rather books that I had on my shelf or novels I wanted to read). Thank you for understanding. ♥
