Unfiltered & Pseudonymous: Authors of Other Fiction Writing New Adult Romance

Remember how I was talking about RT Book Reviews magazine, and that one article I wanted to read? Silly me forgot that a month later, they stick the articles on their website for free.

Anyway, the article seems more of an advertorial for this one series, but there are brief interviews. In short: a group of authors created “Payge Galvin” and a series concept, and they each took it from there. (And some of them will be writing more New Adult romance unrelated to Payge Galvin and the Unfiltered series: Ronnie Douglas has signed a two-book deal with HarperCollins, and Abby Lombard has a self-published novel out.)

Melissa Marr = Ronnie Douglas
Cynthia Omololu = Lynne Jaymes
Jeanette Battista = Jane Lukas
Rachel Vincent = Katy West
Jenna Black = Abby Lombard

The only ones I’m interested in reading are the Katy West one (because Rachel Vincent! Though I hope the addiction isn’t treated flippantly, since the author didn’t want to make it a “heavy” book), and maybe the Abby Lombard (interested to see how she writes bisexual and ménage).

There are other writers in the series whose alter-authors haven’t been revealed (that I know of):

Bridgette Luna
Kasey Wolfe
Danni Pleasance
Meg Chance
Lucy Byrd
Raychel Price
Gabby Marsh
