Thanks so much for having me here at Page Flipperz today. Fabulous cat-eye masks are optional, right? Because all I've got is a slightly used highway man-with-a-desperate-repuation-destroying-secret mask:
Kate - Can I still come and tell you about my seriously to-die-for job?
Kat - For sure Kate thanks for stopping by today would love to hear about your fab job !
So, my name is Kate and I'm Managing Editor of Harlequin Australia's new digital-first arm Escape Publishing. It's my role to read submissions and decide which awesome books we're going to publish.
We launched on Wednesday the 14th of November with five titles. I've been waiting to talk about these titles for ages, and I'm so thrilled to finally be able to talk about them! Probably the most important thing to mention is that each of these titles is on sale for a very limited time, and our erotic novella Chains of Revenge is available free. So if you want to give us a try (and we hope you do!), now is a great time to check us out.
Chains of Revenge – Keziah Hill: a very hot, very dark, very addictive erotic fantasy novella about a slave in sexual bondage who rises to become a Warlord – and take his revenge on the woman who broke his heart.
Chaos Born – Rebekah Turner: a very smart, very complex, surprisingly funny, wholly engrossing urban fantasy debut about a mercenary with a secret so dark even she doesn't know about it – but secrets are meant to be revealed. This novel introduces the gaslit world of the Applecross, its many layers, characters, and the militant religious order that seeks to control it all.
Christmas Wishes – Rhian Cahill: a very sexy, very steamy, surprisingly sweet and light-hearted holiday story about best friends realising that all they really want for Christmas is each other!
Grease Monkey Jive – Ainslie Paton: a lovely, slow-building, meaty, get-your-teeth-in, contemporary romance about a ballroom dance teacher, a mechanic, a dance competition, $50 000, friendships, family, and the power of a little sizzle.
In Safe Hands – Lee Christine: a very polished, very smart, very contemporary Sydney-set, sophisticated romantic suspense novel about a highly successful lawyer threatened by a youthful indiscretion and the ex-SAS Commander that she recruits to help her.
There you have them! So please make sure you let us know what you think! Each of the books has a survey in the back, but you can also get in touch with us (and get more information) on our website, www.escapepublishing.com.au, or via a variety of social media.
