I'd also like to give special thanks to all who contributed to The Romance eBooks Christmas Newsletter last year. It has been a great success with lots of interest and comments being mailed my way. The promotion, as always, has been fantastic for all.
The New Year issue opens the doors for new releases, reviews and competitions. 2009 is a fresh start for authors to create that next love story buzzing around in the back of their minds, and hopefully, I may be promoting a few of those stories later on in the year. But for now, let's look at what The Romance eBooks New Year Newsletter has on offer.
As always, this is a popular page. Take a look at some of the releases, past, present and future, and if you like what you see, then click on the link for direct purchasing details. If you would like to add your release to this issue or the next, then contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
