Harlequin Announce Full-Scale Paid-Publishing Program With ASI

Harlequin have announced the launch of a full-scale paid-publishing venture in partnership with Author Solutions. This is hot on the heels of Harlequin’s new e-book imprint, Carina Press, announced last week, and will be run by Author Solutions. The new paid-publishing venture will be called Harlequin Horizons. This looks like a very similar move to Thomas Nelson’s launch of their paid-publishing imprint, WestBow Press, announced by the publisher last month. Are we about to see a flood of such ventures by commercial publishers? Are Thomas Nelson and Harlequin simply the first to break ranks from the tradition echelons of publishing?
Much more to follow on this breaking story later…
In the meantime, press release here.
