Rapid release schedule for new line introduces past romance favorites to new readers
International publisher Samhain Publishing® is helping authors share past romance favorites with a robust new readership, as it launches its new Retro Romance line to eager fan interest.
According to Heather Osborn, Senior Editor for Retro Romance, the response from both authors and readers has been gratifying. “Many of the great romances of the 1970s, 80s, 90s and even early 2000s are out of print, and never had a chance to reach a digital-savvy audience,” Osborn explains. “At Retro Romance, we are giving these stories a new life and an unlimited future.”
Samhain’s Retro Romance line features five to six new titles monthly, each available in all-digital formats, with fully redesigned covers. Spanning historical, contemporary and paranormal genres, Retro Romance’s newest authors include: Jennifer Archer, Lindsay Chase, Phoebe Conn, Sharon DeVita, Kate Donovan, Sally Falcon, Dawn Flindt, Patricia Hagan, Karen Kay, Joey Light, Tracey Lyons, Lynn Michaels, Debra Mullins, Vella Munn, Janeen O’Kerry, Lynn Patrick, Karen Rose Smith, Alexandra Thomas, and Stella Whitelaw.
For authors who have older titles and want to release them digitally, but don’t care to act as their own cover artist, production assistant, editor, or distributor, Samhain’s Retro Romance line provides an intriguing new opportunity. Samhain takes on the entire process for authors, including scanning print books into digital files, copy editing, formatting into all of the various digital formats, cover art, advertising and promotion.
