Pocket Books presented today a new, free online community for romance and urban fantasy readers called Pocket After Dark. Simon & Schuster Digital developed the site, which will feature exclusive content and a forum for members to share interests and chat with other readers, authors, and editors. The site also includes all S&S's romance and fantasy books that can be bought directly from the site.

On Pocket After Dark, members can read, rate, and discuss new Pocket romance and urban fantasy titles, participate in polls and live chats with Pocket authors, and read about new Pocket authors and sample material. A section called “A Little Tease” offers two free chapters of up to six current titles each month, and an excerpt from a soon-to-be published book. Members will also be able to earn points based on their site activity.
