This week LUV's spotlighting Claire Siemaszkiewicz who's the CEO at Totally Entwined Group. LUV: Tell us about Totally Entwined. What is a romantica publisher? How did you become involved and what is your vision? Can you tell us about yourself as well. Claire: Totally Entwined Group was one of the first digital first publishers for romance fiction. We started our journey in 2007, with eight books and six authors, and have grown to publishing around 250-300 books per year, working with more than 400 authors. Whilst we will always be a digital-first publisher, you will also find our books in print around the world too. We have three imprints – Totally Bound Publishing (romantica fiction), Pride Publishing (GLBTQI+ Romance fiction) and Finch Books (YA Romance). Our online bookstore is at, where you can find more than 2,500 romantica fiction stories. Romantica fiction is essentially every element of romance fiction from sweet to erotic romance. All our stories end with a happy ever after, and most of them go beyond the bedroom door and are spicy. We’re always looking to provide readers with that special bit of ‘me time’. We have every romantic sub-genre that you can think of and always keep on top of what’s hot in the market. Our vision has always been to give readers and authors what they want. The team at TEG was brought together by a mutual love of outstanding romance fiction and a desire to provide a unique service to our authors and readers. We are a royalty-paying, full-service publisher and we offer substantial professional and business experience in the form of editors, artists, marketers, IT technicians and other support staff dedicated to meeting all the needs of all of our authors and readers. We love what we do and are totally committed to providing the best possible service. A bit about me. I’m one of the founders of TEG, along with my husband, who is the tech director. I’ve been a fan and reader of romance all my life. Professionally I was a sales and marketing director before I set up TEG and I’ve managed the growth and development of a number of businesses during my career. I’ve been publishing the genre that I’m most passionate about for fifteen years. Working with authors and readers is literally the only place I want to be. I love what I do! Because I’m so passionate about this industry, I’m determined to make TEG the best that it can be. I’m always keen to look ahead and find ways that we can improve what we do. If I’m not working on a new strategy or project to improve our business and the market in general, you can usually find me with my head in a good romance book!
