Are you a fan of romance? Then you need to know about Swoon Reads, a new website, community, and publishing imprint dedicated to all things romantic and swoony!

Fall in love with falling in love.
Swoon Reads is a teen romance imprint publishing under Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan.
Swoon Reads is dedicated to publishing books that capture the intensity of teen love. More than an imprint, Swoon Reads is a community – one whose members are included in every step of the publishing process. We open the doors for writers and readers to discover the best, most Swoon-worthy teen romance novels and make their voices heard. Together, we publish love stories you will want to read over and over again.
So if you love reading romance, writing it, or both, then Swoon Reads is the place for you!
Since I'm so excited about this new venture, I interviewed Jean Feiwel, the driving force behind it!
Swoon Reads is all about the romance. What elements, if any, do you think are necessary to make a great romance, and why?
My unoriginal definition is partly derived from the great romance writer, Jennifer Cruisie, and a RWA panel from some years ago. A great romance is a love story with an emotionally satisfying ending.
What do you think about novels where romance is not a central feature or present at all?
I am an avid reader of books of all kinds. But books without romance don't have a place on Swoon Reads.
And now for a fun question! Out of all the swoonworthy boys in the books you’ve worked on, which three do you swoon for the most?
Wolf in Marissa Meyer's Scarlet; The Darkling in Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone; and Galen in Anna Bank's Of Poseidon.
So what are you waiting for? Head over to Swoon Reads and start swooning!
