Escape Publishing, the digital-first imprint of Harlequin Australia, launched on November 14 and I was lucky enough to be invited to the party!
And here with equally fabulous Anna Maguire!
According to the Escape website http://www.escapepublishing.com.au/about
Escape’s mission is to “connect readers all around the world with the stories they want to read. We love romance, all romance, so when we imagined Escape Publishing, we imagined an imprint without restrictions, where romance readers can find the romance they want, in the style they want, at the length they want, whenever they want. In short, you want it – we’ve got it.
“If it’s science fiction, fantasy, contemporary, historical, erotic, gay romance, inspirational romance, urban fantasy, paranormal, or YA romance – or any mixture of the above, Escape Publishing’s got it. We offer all levels of sensuality from the sweetest kisses to the hottest encounters. We offer different lengths, from short stories through novellas to full length novels. Our novels are standalone, loosely connected, or part of an ongoing series.”
What makes Escape different from other digital-first publishers is the focus on Australian romance – Australian voices, characters, settings, and stories! And while keen to build an Australian presence in the international romance world, Escape is happy to accept submissions from international authors and settings outside of Australia.
Sounds quite fabulous, hey?
Escape is publishing anything from 5000 words to 250 000 words, so budding authors should check out the website: www.escapepublishing.com.au.
