Q & A with Swoon Reads Publisher, Jean Feiwel
I know you’re not supposed to play favorites, but if you had to choose, which book or series that you’ve worked on is your favorite?
The Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin
What inspired you to be a publisher for Swoon Reads?
I had been noticing and enjoying a number of romances that were being self-published (by writers like Colleen Hoover and Abbi Glines). It said to me that there were talented, unpublished romance writers out there not getting through to agents or traditional publishers, but who were connecting with their readers and fans directly. I started Swoon Reads to find readers and writers and bring them together to create a publishing program of romance- fan- sourced books.
What TV show/movie/book is your guilty pleasure?
Oh there are so many! But I’d say THE VOICE.
Many thanks to Jean Feiwel for answering my questions; I’m honored to be included in this tour. I can’t wait to see what’s coming from Swoon Reads… Readers, check out Swoon Reads and then come back here to let me know what you think!
