Romance Makes TV

They loved us on HSN (and we loved them). I can't believe how many books we sold in 60 minutes of airtime.

My only fear is that they'll try to seduce Holly as an on-air personality, because she rocked!

In case you missed us, you can watch Holly selling our novels here:

[BEVERLY, MA – September 13, 2009] Ravenous Romance™, an independent publisher of romance fiction that launched in December 2008, will be selling exclusive trade paperback editions of 18 of its books on HSN. Holly Schmidt, President and Founder of Ravenous Romance, will be appearing live on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 8:35 AM and 4:35 PM and Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 3:00 AM. Schmidt will be selling the “Escape with Romance Collection,” which consists of four different six-book sets of Ravenous Romance novels: contemporary, paranormal, historical, and a sampler set that includes two books of each genre.

“We’re tremendously excited about the opportunity to bring Ravenous Romance to the HSN customers,” Schmidt said. “Our authors will gain enormous national exposure, and our readers will now have the option to buy our books in high-quality paperback editions.” The “Escape with Romance Collection” features exclusive trade paperbacks, all with Ravenous Romance’s signature original photography and cover design. “We’re very pleased with the quality of the product,” says Ravenous partner Allan Penn. “We worked hard to create display-quality collectible editions.”

This is the first time romance novels have been sold on HSN, and the editorial content of the books has been tailored to the HSN audience. Says Ravenous editorial director Lori Perkins, “While we’re known for publishing erotic romance, these books do not include explicit sex scenes. They are steamy and sexy, but leave a bit more to the imagination in the bedroom.”

Concludes Schmidt, “HSN offers a unique platform to really sell our books to readers. And, at the end of the day, books need to be sold, not just put out there in the hope that readers will find them. We’re thrilled to offer our authors this opportunity.”
