Hello Writers Forum I have a favor to ask of those who are reading this thread! I am obsessed with romance novels therefore I am currently working on a website dedicated to steamy romance excerpts. I have no background in the professional world of writing. I am creating this thread with the intention of learning how I should reach out to authors/writers of self-published works. What websites do authors of romance novels frequent? Where could could I meet authors/writers whom create the content I wish to use? Also if their content is on my website do I need to draw up some sort of contract? My only experience with writing is an academic one. I do believe all I need to do is give attribution. Would it be appropriate for me to take excerpts I find on the web and place them on my website? Hey if you are interested in my project and have any questions for me please leave a comment. I am willing to work with anyone who is interested!
