Virtual: Q&A with Jennifer McCord: Romance in Publishing; Thoughts on Where It's Been

Monday, March 25, 2024

How is it possible that the romance genre continues to be judged so harshly even though it is a multi-billion dollar industry, often supporting bookstores so they can also sell other genres? Join editor and publisher, Jennifer McCord, in this discussion of her 30 years in the industry - the trends she's seen, the writers she's supported, and her thoughts on Romancelandia.

If you grew up with Jayne Ann Krentz, Sandra Brown, LaVryle Spencer, Nora Roberts and so many more, join us to hear Jennifer's wonderful memories of working with the icons in the industry as well as those who came after. This is guaranteed to be an amazing conversation for romance readers young and not as young :). 

RECORDING NOTE: This program will be recorded. All registrants will receive the recording via email within 48 hours of the program.

About Jennifer:

From her earliest memories of tales told around her grandmother’s kitchen table – stories of struggle, survival, and working the land – to the rich personal histories and unfolding journeys of the many fascinating people she has encountered throughout her life, stories have always mattered to Jennifer McCord. Jennifer loves the story, and she knows that a story unshared is a story lost.

With more than thirty years of success in the publishing industry and a well-earned national reputation for publishing expertise and creativity coaching, Jennifer heads an experienced team of story editors, line editors, designers, proofreaders, indexers, and other book and publishing professionals that can help you to realize your dreams in the publishing industry.

We're thrilled to be collaborating with a multitude of MA Libraries for this presentation.
