Australian Book Lovers has a super special podcast episode coming very soon – a panel discussion all about romance novels featuring international bestselling romance authors Sandy Barker and Susan Horsnell, as well as historical fiction and dystopian science fiction author Clare Rhoden! Together with hosts Darren and Veronica we'll be diving into all the wonderful aspects of the art of writing romance, including publishing and marketing, how to create intriguing characters, and what romance means to each of us.

To celebrate, simply tell us what romance means to you in one beautiful sentence below and you'll be in the running to win signed paperback copies of Sandy Barker's holiday romance series, or one of Susan Horsnell's nine fabulous romance novels!
