Today Diversion Publishing launched a new online romance community. What the press release lacks is a link to said community, it can be found here. It is meant to be "publisher neutral" and this is reasonably plausible in that Diversion's Ever After Division was been an e-bookstore and services provider, but never home to their own romance titles.
To my eyes the new community website looks deressingly pink, girly, sweaty-torso-ed and... well like a blog.Because,,. It's a blog. Right? Damn it, I have fallen for another Press Release Puff Job.
Which is a pity because I do think there is a bit of a hole in Romanceandia where a real pan-romance site with forums, wikis, resources etc could fit in. One is mainstream and business-like, and that swerves around the kitschy low tech populism of the Romantic Times forum, the cloying insularity of Romance Diva's, the dated fading charm of All About Romance....
Or a I being too harsh? Which romance community sites do you use? Which would you recommend?
