Thanks to the many authors (and agents) who worked quickly to fill my inbox with lots of very interesting novella collection proposals to choose from. At this point I've contracted almost all that I'm going to need for 2012. I just have to decide on a couple Christmas ones. So, I really don't need any new proposals.
At this moment, I don't know what the plan for novella collections will be for 2013, but I do hope I can contract some more. They are a lot of fun to work on.
This fall we are kicking off a new line of romances that -- similar to our romance collections -- focus strongly on a state location. The first two books will be from Erica Vetsch and Kim O'Brien.
I've already filled most all my 2012 slots. I expect by June or July, I'll be ready to start filling some 2013 slots. We are doing a fairly equal number of historical and contemporary settings. So, if you have an 80,000-word romance idea for this line, you might want to start putting a proposal together. The story should stand alone. We don't plan any series within the line.
This line is a great way to showcase some of our best Heartsong Presents authors.
