Or is it just coincidence?
Today I get email from Writer's Market, as I often do, and I notice a story about four new book publishers. I always check those out, because in the past I've had luck getting published with new/small houses. One of them, SynergEbooks, intrigues me for their emphasis on e-books, so I check it out.
What's highlighted on the first page? A series of romance novels set in the fictional town of....Oberon, California.
Best I can tell there is no Shakespeare connection, other than the fact that your Shakespeare Geek happened to trip over it.
