The Romance Genre on the Web

Researching online romance genre communities and their perspectives

Media interest

It’s been an amazing couple of days. My university sent out a media release yesterday morning, about my being a finalist in the Romance Writer’s of America Golden Heart Award. I expected the local paper to pick it up, and perhaps the regional radio station, but the response has been fantastic – I’ve done two radio interviews today, for the local regional radio station and the station for the north coast, a television news segment, an interview for the major news agency that feeds across the country, and I’m lined up for another TV news interview tomorrow, and a spot on Radio National next week, just before I fly out to Dallas.

There’s been an increase in visitors to this research blog today as a result. For any folks looking for information about my writing, it’s on the web under my penname, Bronwyn Parry.

The various interviewers have asked some good questions, and its been a great opportunity to talk about the contemporary romance genre. I hope I’ve done it justice.

That must be very exciting, Bron. Will you give us links to the coverage when/if you get them? I googled and found an item in The West Australian but nothing else yet.

Do you know when you’re on Radio National Bron?

Laura, the local radio and TV don’t have very much in the way of online copies of the stories, so I haven’t found anything yet. However, the ABC Radio National is broadcast on the web with downloadable files, so my interview next week will probably be available, assuming it goes ahead as planned.

Keziah, it’s scheduled for Friday 6th, around 11.25am, on the Bush Telegraph program. Closer to the date, I’ll put up a link and advise if there’s been any changes to the time.

Congratulations, Bronwyn. All the best with the upcoming interviews, too.
