Love Between the Covers

Showed at Images 4/21/2017

Starring: Len Barot, Melanie Bernier, Mary Bly

For three years, the filmmakers followed the lives of five published romance authors and one unpublished newbie as they build their businesses, find and lose loved ones, cope with a tsunami of change in publishing, and earn a living doing what they love—while empowering others to do the same.

The film witnesses romance authors and readers build communities and friendships that don’t just exist on social media sites, blogs, and message boards, but also transition into the real world. We see authors on trips with their readers, at conferences and special romance events -- and we see them encouraging their readers to become writers themselves.

During the three years of shooting Love Between the Covers, we witness the biggest power shift that has taken place in the publishing industry over the last 200 years. And it’s the romance authors who are on the front lines, pioneering new ways to survive in this rapidly changing environment.
