Reading: The Taste of Night by Vicki Pettersson
Watching: Teen Wolf
Listening to: With a Spirit by 009 Sound System
So the hot news sweeping through the author community is that Random House are bringing back their Loveswept romances. For those unfamiliar with these category books, they were published by Bantam in the 80s and 90s and launched the careers of such luminaries as Suzanne Brockmann, Kay Hooper, Iris Johansen and Tess Gerritsen. Jenny Crusie also wrote two before the line became defunct.
So they will be in e-format only, and reprints of favorites to start. Then eventually, new titles will be published. This is great for readers who love category books (More diversity! More books to read! More authors to discover!) and fabulous news for category authors too (More places to sell their work! More readers! More diversity!). The Publishers Weekly announcement is here, and the new website for Random House Loveswept here.
