Harlequin announced a new venture yesterday. All I can say…is it sounds pretty darn cool! Details below from their official press release:
Harlequin Enterprises Limited, the global leader in series romance and one of the world’s leading publishers of women’s fiction, announced today the launch of Carina Press(TM), a digital-only publishing house that will operate independently of their traditional publishing businesses.
Carina Press (http://www.carinapress.com) is a digital-only publishing house whose eBooks will be sold direct to consumers through the Carina Press Web site and numerous third-party Web sites. Carina Press will publish a wide range of women’s fiction — romance, erotica, science fiction, mystery, family sagas, choose your own adventures, horror, thriller and more, including every conceivable subgenre of these categories.
Angela James, formerly of Samhain Publishing, has signed on as Executive Editor. I imagine we’ll be hearing quite a bit about this launch throughout blogland!
