This is my final post at the Contemporary Romance Cafe.
We’re closing up shop this month. We’re not hanging a For Lease sign in the window, however. Instead we’re turning the place into a self-serve. Come in, look around, read back on all the great posts. Find us in other places!

It’s interesting timing because, up until this spring, I’ve been part of four group blogs. I decided to leave one, two rebranded, and this one decided to close up shop. (I also used to belong to a fifth one, but I left that some time ago.)
I hear a lot about whether blogging is “worth it,” meaning, does it translate to book sales. Which, it probably doesn’t in most cases, at least not as a straight-line relationship. Also, not everyone is good at it or enjoys it, so those are good reasons to drop it from the social media repertoire.
There’s also a market adjustment going on, with contemporary romance being extensively flooded as a genre. Many writers are tweaking what they’re doing. That’s an ongoing challenge in the industry.
At any rate – I’ve loved being part of this group! It’s been a good run.
I’m sure I’ll see all of you around town.
