Hello world!

Welcome to the virtual home of The Romaniacs.

We are a group of romance writers who were drawn together by the strings of fate. We found each   other through Twitter, as members of the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers’ Scheme, immediately sharing a common ground. Through tweeting, we began to form the solid bonds of friendship that now exist.

We acquired our name of The Romaniacs through a typing error on a tweet. With our love of reading and writing romance, and the fun and laughter we brought to one another, the name seemed entirely appropriate, so it stuck.

The Romaniacs are kindred spirits who share a passion for writing. We are each other’s sounding boards, damp shoulders and outspoken advisors, bringing our vastly different knowledge and experience to the group.

The Romaniac blog is a place where everyone can chat about romance and writing, and over the next week and a half, we will be taking turns to introduce ourselves.

We look forward to hearing your stories, comments and views and hope you enjoy our Romaniac overtures.

  1. Sounds excellent – can anyone join? I never thought of myself as a romantic writer but my reviews would indicate otherwise. What I considered principally an adventure novel has been labelled a “love story” first and foremosts … the reader decides.

    • Thanks so much for stopping by Cameron and leaving a comment. We’re a group of writers who all belong to the NWS and will be blogging about our reading and writing. At the moment we don’t envisage taking on new members but we would love to follow you on Twitter. We very much welcome people joining in with the discussions we have and make sure you check out Romantic Fiction if it is an area you’re interested in.

      Thanks again.

    • There are more introduction posts over the next week and a half. Looking forward to sharing them 🙂

  2. What a lovely idea. I’m now in my second year of the NWS. I was a finalist in the 2012 Harry Bowling Prize with my book, Bride of the Year which went through the scheme in 2011. I look forward to reading the blog.

    • Hi Elaine.
      Thank you for you visiting. I am on my third year, but one or two Romaniacs are on their second year. It is a fantastic scheme and I cannot praise it highly enough. Congratulations on being a finalist in the Harry Bowling Prize. That’s no mean feat.
      Laura 🙂

  3. I joined the NWS scheme this January and am looking forward to sending my novel in to be read and going to the conference. Meeting other NWS writers (like Laura)through this blog is an unexpected bonus. A great idea and a fab name!

    • Hi Clare
      Welcome to our Blog and to the NWS. Thank you for your lovely comments.
      We look forward to meeting everyone at Conference 🙂
