Normally, I post personal things on this blog. Things I do with the kids and with Andrew (we went to Kingston last weekend to see Anna compete in a speech competition - way to go, kiddo!), things that are happening on the farm (three new lambs this past few weeks) or within my extended family (my cousin and his wife in the UK had bought healthy twin boys into the world last week), and things that interest me (books, wine, food, etc).
And those of you who follow along will know how I switched gears earlier this year and left the corporate world to focus on teaching and editing. Teaching is out for the summer now, but the editing is going strong, and today I am pleased to announce that Carina Press, the company I work for, celebrates its first year of publishing. Yes, one year ago, Carina published its first set of e-books, and has been going strong ever since.The world of e-book publishing is exciting and fast-paced, and growing every day. It's so much fun to be part of it all.
Carina Press is an imprint of Harlequin. And yes, there are lots of romances. Being a digital publisher, however, gives us more leeway and so we publish a wide range of other books, including non romance. As an acquisitions editor, I get to read so many fantastic stories, and those that really resonate with me are the ones I edit. I tend towards historicals (no surprise there), but also enjoy mystery and suspense, and contemporary stories. I'm brushing up on steampunk, which I am discovering I really enjoy reading, and hope to start editing some of those one of these days too.
Today, Carina Press is hosting an anniversary blog tour. Carina editors and team members have blogged on the sites of some of our authors. A complete list with links can be found on the Carina Blog.
I am hosted by Marie Force, and will be checking in throughout the day to respond to questions and comments.
Hope to see you there.
Oh, and Happy Anniversary, Carina.
