Front Porch Romance opened its doors in January 2013 and is a new sweet to sensual eBook publisher offering every sub-genre of romance.
Publisher and co-owner Madison Connors has been in the industry since 2010, when she became a marketing and promotions executive for a romance publisher. After years of assisting other authors, her husband, and Front Porch Romance partner, talked her into starting her own e-publishing house. With the number of erotic romance publishers increasing since 2010, Madison wanted to keep with the mainstay of romance, the softer, sensual and sweeter side.
“We all grew up, or started with, reading sweet, happily ever-after romance before we changed and expanded our reading. Erotic and specialized sub-genres of romance have really exploded onto the scene in recent years, but I wanted to keep our publications and novels basic and the anchor of all romance novels. While we may venture off and get hooked on a craze, or specialized romance genre, we all go back to what we fell in love with first.”
