LBTC Poster ImageLove stories are universal. Love stories are powerful. And so are the women who write them. For three years, we follow the lives of five published romance authors and one unpublished newbie as they build their businesses, find and lose loved ones, cope with a tsunami of change in publishing, and earn a living doing what they love—while empowering others to do the same. Romance is the behemoth of the publishing industry; it outsells mystery, sci-fi, and fantasy combined. Yet no filmmaker has ever taken an honest look at the amazing global community that romance writers and readers have built. Until now.
Doors open at 3pm, film event starts at 4pm
The first 100 attendees to arrive at the theatre will receive a special event goodie bag.



  1. This sounds fantastic, Terri. I'm like Missy. I wish I were closer. I'd love to attend. I hope you'll share some of the details with us.

  2. Hi ladies, I wish you were closer too! Where are you? Lol
    Yes, I'll take notes and pass them along. For the film, you might check to see if it will be reviewed in your area or see if your local RWA chapter would look into hosting a showing. Its fascinating.
