Claytons update: Introducing our special guest, Sue Grimshaw, from Random House

Sue GrimshawHello down under! I’m so anxious to meet you all, virtually, at the Clayton’s Conference 2013 next month. Hopefully your summer winter has been marvelous and you’ve all been writing, reading and enjoying the season? It’s summer here in the states and I’ve been enjoying bicycling — it’s great exercise and a nice way to spend time outside.

So much has happened in the last couple of years and Dana was kind enough to let me drop by and shamelessly promote our success – I hope you don’t mind *Grins*


First off, we’ve launched THREE more digital original imprints!!! Yes indeed – Flirt, Hydra and Alibi join Loveswept as RHPG’s digital original imprints, and we are psyched — You can find submission, FAQ’s and other tidbits here at

LovesweptNext we’re establishing websites to promote our brands (that’s you, the authors *wink*) and the imprints themselves — here’s Loveswept’s site, — I totally love this, all of the awesome colors and books too – omg, we’ve the best art department when it comes to covers *fans self*

Flirt 2Inclusive of the launch is our own Street Team!!! Details here – Join won’t you? Free giveaways and first looks at our #Loveswept and #Flirt romances – – And don’t miss our new Facebook page, stop by & ‘like’ us.

And, of course is alive and well featuring books from around the entire romance community; visit me on Twitter; and R@R loves to see you on Facebook; and believe it or not, I’m on Pinterest and Google+, kinda lame but I’m there *Smile*

As you can see, we are everywhere, capturing the community by storm and delivering some mighty fine romances along the way . . . . like our double RITA nominee, Ruthie Knox; Toni Aleo and her sexy Assassin hockey hunks; Lauren Layne will debut with Loveswept this fall featuring her sexy Stiletto series; and so much more!! Tina Wainscott, Tracy Wolff, Tina Leonard, Lisa Renee Jones, Mira Lyn Kelly – just to name a few, whew! Plus all of our awesome classics – find out more here at #Loveswept.

Cassie MaeTHEN, Cassie Mae pours her soul into Kelli Pinkins and Chase Maroney in FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI, on sale late July — This launches our FLIRT imprint!!

I could go on and on however, I won’t — because I hope you’ll visit me August 17th, ask lots of questions and I’ll try to answer them all PLUS give you the inside scoop, whatever that may be

Until then – salut – Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi and all that –

Happy Romance,

    So good to see so many opportunities for writers opening up with all your wonderful new imprints, Sue. Can’t wait for your input re. pitching at The Clayton’s this year.

    • Thanks Marilyn – pulling that workshop together soon — what do you think are they key things people want to know about pitches? More about how to give them or what editors and agents are looking for now?

    Hi Sue, I’m very new to all of this and know nothing about pitching, so please cover it all in you workshop for the newbies! How to give it and what agents and editors are looking for. Thanks 🙂

    Re. the pitching workshop for The Claytons, from my own perspective it’d be great to get an overview of what editors/agents are currently on the lookout for, but newbies will no doubt benefit from your expert advice on the ‘tech’ aspects.

  9. Looks good Sue, and although it’s winter here, up in sunny Queensland that means slipping on a jumper at night. Still great cycling weather 🙂
