Amateur romance writers now have a chance to show their stuff with Avon Impulse. Avon Impulse is a new service that lets amateur authors submit their romance novels to Avon for publishing in the form of an e-Book.

Avon Impulse is set to release four books a month, with authors getting 25 percent of the royalties from the first 10,000 books sold and 50 percent for every copy sold there after. Avon will copyedit all accepted works in addition to providing a steamy and sexy cover page.

I am not a big fan of romance novels, but I am intrigued by Avon Impulse and the brilliant concept it boasts. It is only a matter of time before other publishing houses catch on and start crowdsourcing e-Book assignments. Stats for Crowdsourced Love Novels Trending: Older & Chilly
