WHO WE ARE
The Paranormal Romance Guild, AKA (“PRG”), was formed by the banding together of paranormal romance genre readers and writers, through the internet, with the sole purpose of supporting and promoting authors of the paranormal romance genre through the organization’s website and special events. The Paranormal Romance Guild (PRG) was officially organized and recognized on October 31,2009. PRG is a non-profit organization. All fees and dues collected are to sustain operations of the PRG. No assets of the corporation are to benefit the officers or members.
The ‘Readers’ membership is an unlimited free membership that allows you to read what is going on within the guild. It is easy to sign up – and you can later still upgrade your membership.
The Paranormal Romance Guild accepts a limited amount of writers from other genres as well.
In June 2020, the Paranormal Romance Guild runs a ‘reduced membership’ time, where you are paying less for a one-year membership and save even more on a two-year membership.
New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.

From Book Blog to Book Deal.
First things first, because I’m sure this question is on a lot of writer’s minds: does a book blog still land a book deal?
My answer? Of course, they do. Great writing and great content will always find an audience, and where there’s an audience, especially a sizable one, there’s typically a book deal waiting to happen. Think Julie Powell, Candice Bushnell, Jen Lancaster, and Jenny Lawson.
Not to mention, entire empires (with books launched along the way), have been built on the humble foundations of blog sites that just wouldn’t quit. Think ProBlogger’s Darren Rowse and Content Marketing Institute’s Joe Pulizzi.
I found this excellent blog post on the Mixtus Media blog, written by Jenn Hanson-DePaula on why readers won’t follow us authors on social media. Thank you very much for this article, Jenn.
Social media is, hands down, one of the best ways to connect with new people all over the world. And yet, we still struggle with actually making those connections.
Why? Well, I tend to think that it’s because we have tried to make social media fit into marketing. That’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. We use social media to broadcast our marketing message when we actually need to use it as it was designed to be used: as a way for actual human beings to interact with each other.
Social media can be incredibly powerful. I’ve seen and experienced its power first hand. It’s amazing to meet people all over the world and connect with them in a genuine and authentic way.
But if you’ve had a bad experience with social media, chances are there are just a few things that you need to adjust to get everything back on track.
I’ve broken down the top five mistakes that I’ve seen authors make on social media that keep readers from engaging with you.
I was surprised to see once again, how far ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ has developed. Yesterday I discovered that I got a new achievement ‘award’:
1337 posts published – this is amazing. (Even though I wonder, what the magic number 1337 stands for.)
At this moment I’m surprised, and I’m flattered. I know, without you all, followers, readers and in particular friends, I couldn’t have done that! The guest posts, the ‘Featured Author’ posts, the interviews, promotions and re-blogs; without all those posts, ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ wouldn’t be what it is.
I want to say ‘Thank you’ to you all for making my blog a success and for making blogging a true adventure for me!
