Now for the spotlight

Earlier this week, 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.

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 Kisses 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.

All the titles are available without DRM or geographic restrictions, from major and local e-booksellers. They are specially priced for the launch at $0.99 each, and Chains of Revenge is available for free for a very limited time.

 A Novel Approach with a Digital Audience
As experts in the digital space, does instant gratification appease your online nature? Do you or your followers have a burning idea that keeps you up at night? A story that must be told? Now there’s a new home for great stories!
At Harlequin Australia, the leading publisher of romance, we live for reading — for that sigh-worthy first kiss, for that pulse-raising chase scene, for that sob-swallowing goodbye. And we’d love to hear your stories!
Today we are officially launching our digital-first imprint, Escape Publishing — — which is open to receiving manuscript submissions!
Escape Publishing was created thanks to the ever growing appetite for romance and we were reading thousands of brilliant manuscripts. Yet despite our passion for these works, due to the limitations of the print book business many were not being published.
Escape Publishing takes a novel approach. Firstly, we are dedicated to our authors. If you’re an author with us... it’s all about you! Our promise to you is a personalised service with a fast turn-around of 3 months, supported by an integrated marketing campaign.
“We’re nimble – we are big enough to take the time to help you craft your manuscript and provide the marketing support to help create a bestseller, but small enough to adapt to, and move with, the market. We have built an unparalleled connection to the reader and with over 78% market share, we know romance!” Managing Director of Harlequin Enterprises Asia-Pacific, Michelle Laforest, explains.
Everyone has a story to tell, and Escape Publishing wants to make sure the very best of these stories are shared with the world.
Now is the time to submit! Join us at Escape Publishing as we jump head first into the liberating world of digital publishing!
