Buzzing about Romance Booking Policies.

We have had some questions about our booking policies and our criteria for the Buzzing about Romance Podcast recently.

Sunday Episodes

Currently our Sunday Episodes are focused on book recs. We also will give insight into the world of publishing and Romancelandia. We often will try to group books together based on a common trope of sub-genre. These episodes are co-hosted by our set group of podcast contributors. If you have a trope or episode idea please email us a [email protected] or use the contact form at the bottom of the page.

Author Spotlights

These will be quick 20-25 mins episodes dropped on either Tuesdays or Thursdays to coincide with a release. We are limited to 2 a month on these. We typically will approach authors via email or web contact via their website. We try to not use social media direct messages due to them easily being missed or lost. We on occasion have been approached by authors/pr firms/agents to consider them for an episode, for these we add them to our interest list and do at times work them into our show. We rarely use their PR or Agent to book these episodes. We tend to book these episodes 2-3 months in advance. We do request that authors/pr reps be familiar with our podcast when they approach us.

Quick Shot of Romance Episodes:

Our Quick Shot of Romance Episodes these are mostly driven by our community. We pick books we the host are interested in or ones that are by authors that are community favorites. We have opened review request on our website for us to branch out and consider new to us authors. You can find that form here:

Happy Hour Events:

Happy Hour Events on Youtube. These events are 100% book promo events. We do these for authors to promote their new releases or upcoming projects. These are fun ways for authors to engage live with their readers/community. These are often booked through Authors, Agents, and PR Firms. We are always open to hosting these events. The great thing about them is that we leave them up on YouTube and it becomes searchable content for the author. These events are successful when the event is shared with the authors readers via newsletters or social media. We do ask authors to please let us drop in reader groups to share the event.

Special Events: Drunk Book Club, Summer Reading, Read-a-thon, and Challenges. These events are open for consideration from anyone who is interested in being part of them. These are great community engagements and if you would like more information on them, please emails us.

Since the start of the podcast, we have featured almost 200 authors. Our plan is to continue to share our favorite reads and authors. If you would like us to consider an author for an upcoming event, please reach out. If you have any questions about how we do things, please reach out. I can promise you I will always be 100% upfront in honest in what are doing and our expectations.

We also do not use any kind of booking agent or PR firm. Every guest and book featured is a direct result of feedback from our community. We either personally Email the author or we are approached by them or someone who works with them. We then make the choice to invite them on an episode as we have openings. There is absolutely no booking fee ever charged to the author, PR Firm or Publisher.
