FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Celebrating the Launch of New Indie Romance Imprint
BLACK SPOT BOOKS OPENS INDIE ROMANCE IMPRINT, ANNOUNCES TITLES
Black Spot Books, a small-press publisher specializing in speculative fiction, has announced the launch of a new indie ebook first romance imprint, Siren Press. With several books already in production, Siren Press is preparing for its first releases in Summer 2018, including four currently scheduled titles: STAY WITH ME by award-winning author Alyse Miller (New Adult romance, July 2018), CARVED IN CHERRY by USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Kirke (Paranormal romance, August 2018), EXTRA INNINGS by Lynn Stevens (New Adult romance, September 2018), and THE CHOSEN by Kristin Clark (Paranormal romance, October 2018). Siren Press plans to release new romance titles on a monthly basis, with scheduling already well into 2019.
“As Black Spot Books continues to grow by leaps and bounds, we are looking for ways to reach new readers and audiences, as well as give new authors a chance to share their work,” says Black Spot Books Owner and Publisher, Lindy Ryan. “The indie book community is underserved, and there are amazing stories—particularly within the romance community—that deserve to be published with a strong, passionate team behind them that is committed to their success.”
Taking a cue from the strategies that have made Black Spot Books so successful in its first year, Ryan has once again tapped directly into the publishing community to bring new talent into Siren Press. Joining the team is award-winning blogger Lynn Shaw, who will lead social media and community growth. “Lynn knows indie romance inside and out,” says Lindy. “She brings years of experience and invaluable insight to our team, and we are grateful to have her on board.”
Siren Press will focus primarily on romance, publishing titles in contemporary, YA/NA, and paranormal romance, with titles ranging from sweet to steamy. Titles are produced in ebook first, with trade paperback and audiobook options, and are distributed by Ingram.
