Author Solutions Romances Harlequin for Self Publishing

This article may stir Flash Fiction Online readers' hearts mainly because it unclothes the efforts traditional publishers are making to romance their readers. Author Solutions, a slender, young meta-self-publishing company representing iUniverse and other self-publishing companies, has successfully flirted with Harlequin, the robust, muscle-bound Romance publisher. Their union will bear fruit in the Harlequin Horizons imprint.

Harlequin Horizons will try a reconciliation with the authors Harlequin has rejected in the past and seal their reunion with a self-publishing contract under the cover of the Horizons imprint. (Don't gossip, but they'll seek new paramours at the same time.)

Author Solutions has sealed a similar covenant with Christian publisher Nelson, for the WestBow imprint.

Peek through Publishers Weekly's window for a less-annoying rendition of this story.
