Have you ever wished you could find a group of people who loved the kind of romance books you do? Someone to talk with and share your favorite romance reads or learn about new ones?
For some, there are book clubs where you are obligated to read a specific book each month, sit in a room together and listen to people discuss what they got from said book. But if you’re the type of person who doesn’t enjoy required reading or socializing in public then this is not an option for you.
Fear not, there is an alternative; Facebook Groups.
If you are on Facebook, finding a romance community that fits your reading tastes is as easy as using the search feature and clicking “join” on the group page. The hard part is knowing how to word your search so that Facebook brings up relevant group pages.
Guess what, I’ve done the work for you. (You’re Welcome)
Below are 53 Facebook Groups that are dedicated to Romance readers.
I tried to find a group for as many romance genres as possible. Still, this is not all of the romance groups on Facebook. Browse through the list to see if there is one just right for you and then take some time to do a search on your own to see if there are more that tickle your fancy.
For my romance writer’s out there Facebook groups can be an invaluable tool. NOT to showcase or promote your book but to get in touch with your reader base. To really listen and learn what they want out of a romance book. The groups are also a great place to ask readers questions like I did in “What Do Romance Readers Really Want? “.

Hi Darla, I’m a newbie writer of contemporary erotic romance novels with three books published, and, at my publisher’s suggestion, I have a Facebook account, but it’s all personal friends. I don’t know how to attract people to my books. My reviews have been superlative, and I’m on Goodreads, Amazon, and a couple of other sites whose names I can’t remember. I have a full-time job, so I can’t devote a lot of time to flogging my books. I’ve had great replies from a few strangers who’ve read my books, but I don’t know how to reach readers. My publisher suggested a Facebook fan page, but so what? After I have the page, who knows about it? How do I gather people to look at it? As you can see, I’m totally ignorant. I’m an English teacher and a rabid romance reader and an actor, but I know zip about marketing. I’ve spoken at writers’ conventions, but that’s attended by writers, not readers, book conventions, libraries, etc., but my audience is always would-be writers, not readers. I don’t have a blog because who would read it if I have no fans? Can you give me some pointers? One fellow I asked said, “Write more books.” I did that. Another said “Join Romance Writers of America.” I did that. Another said “Tweet.” To whom? If you don’t feel inclined or don’t have time to explain how it works, I certainly understand, but I simply don’t understand how to get readers to my Amazon page or my Goodreads page, etc. How does this work?

Hi Sharon. I completely understand your dilemma. I felt the same way. Did you ever see that baseball movie with Kevin Costner called Field of Dreams? If you did, you’ll know the meaning behind this, “If you build it, they will come.” If you write a book someone will read it, if you create a website someone will visit it, and if you have an author page on any social media someone will join it. You’ve already built up more then half of your Author Platform. Now all that seems to be missing is social media and marketing in general. Make a social media page on every site. It doesn’t have to be used everday. Just as long as it has the key info about your books, where to buy them, and your website. Keywords are the key to strangers finding you. In everything you post make sure you use the right keywords so that when someone is searching for something you’ve written about you pop up in their search field. Also look for reader groups that read the type of books you write, join them, then promote when the time is right. I hope this helps 🙂
Thanks for this compilation Darla, it was very helpful!
You’re welcome. If you decide to join some of the groups come back and let us know what you think of them. 🙂
My romance novel, Secret Desires by JL Regen, a spicy and tender tale, just came out in paperback. It’s a caring read based on a true story. Hope you will turn the pages. Available on Amazon.com.
