On the 14th of November, Harlequin Australia launched its digital-first arm, Escape Publishing,with an aim of bringing Australian and New Zealand voices and stories to the world, Escape is taking submissions in all genres of romance, as long as the story has a romantic arc and an emotionally fulfilling ending. But that's our only restriction – our digital-first publishing model gives us the flexibility and freedom to take some risks and explore new areas, as well as publishing some truly fantastic traditional romance.
The imprint launched with five titles across the spectrum of romance, and will publish six more titles in December.
The launch titles are:
Chains of Revenge by Keziah Hill, a dark erotic fantasy novella.
Chaos Born by Rebekah Turner, a complex, darkly humoured urban fantasy debut.
Christmas Wishes by Rhian Cahill, a sweet, sexy, sensual holiday romance novella.
Grease Monkey Jive by Ainslie Paton, a groovy, meaty, modern contemporary romance.
In Safe Hands by Lee Christine, a sophisticated, polished, suspenseful romantic suspense.Or see here for Escape Publishing launch titles!
