edelweiss editors picks

Our popular Editors' Picks series benefits the work of Ascend. In these webinars, we aim to amplify underrepresented voices in publishing by asking editors to share their favorite titles. This is a fantastic opportunity to generate buzz and enhance discovery by getting your titles in front of book professionals and enthusiasts. Our Editors' Picks sessions are promoted extensively to the Edelweiss community of booksellers, librarians, and reviewers.

It is no surprise that Romance is at the top of the literary genre wish list. It’s All About LOVE

On Wednesday, July 27, Edelweiss will host a Sizzling Hot Fun in the Summertime Romance Editors’ Picks. Find your passion, rekindle your inner-love-thyself, and discover new titles on the Romance horizon. Go on, dip your toe in. We promise, you will be swept away!


Publishers can reserve space for $500 and feature 1-2 titles. This reservation includes:


  • Your publisher's name in pre-event marketing and communications, which includes an eblast to our entire mailing list, pop-up inside Edelweiss, paid campaigns on social media, and inclusion in targeted monthly newsletters.


  • A 5-minute time slot during the live virtual event to feature 1-2 titles. In the past, the live event has hosted between 200 and 650 viewers. After the event, the recording is shared with all registrants and on social media and in targeted monthly newsletters to librarians and booksellers.


  • All featured titles are included in a special newsletter post- event to over 60,000 book buyers and lovers (includes jacket cover, title, author, pub date, and publisher).


  • An Edelweiss collection of these featured titles will be shared on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) and within Edelweiss Community.


Space is limited. Submissions are due by Friday, July 1. Submitted titles will be reviewed by our Editors’ Picks committee, and publishers will be notified by Friday, July 8. Accepted titles will be included in the July 27 session. We expect a publishing house representative to present accepted titles.
