About

Dev Love Press was founded in June 2012 by award-winning romance novelist Ruth Madison in order to fill the void in the industry regarding the portrayal of individuals with physical disabilities. Her debut novel (W)hole (now in its second edition) was an award finalist in the romance category of the USA Book News’s National Best Books Awards in 2009.

Dev Love Press is looking to fill a hole in the world of books. There are so few novels where characters who have real flaws and real struggles, such as physical disabilities, are able to achieve love. We at Dev Love Press think that needs to change!

We’re building up a stable of books with love stories where the characters struggle physically against great odds to find love and acceptance with their perfect match.

What does the name mean?

We love love stories! And that’s what we’re here for, to see love stories develop.

In the engineering world the word “dev” stands for “developer” and we see that as our role in the publishing world, a developer of love stories.
