Just think if romance writers had sponsors and when they stepped up on the stage at a RWA National Conference to accept their RITA. Would they say something like "I couldn't have done it without my Books-a-Million, Dell Computers, HP Multipurpose paper, Lexmark, Charter Internet, [insert critique partners, agent and publisher] team"?
Yeah. I can see it. Sponsor patches all over my formal, shaking up a big bottle of champagne and changing out tiaras with different logos in rhinestones as I talk with the interviewer from Romance Novel TV. Oh, yeeeaahhh.
Who would be your sponsors?
