Grand Central Publishing will nearly double the releases from its romance imprint Forever and its eBook-only counterpart Forever Yours this year.
The Hachette imprint expects to grow from last year’s list of 64 titles to an estimated 120 titles this year and more than 190 titles in 2014. They will also add editorial and marketing staff at these imprints. Forever currently publishes established writers like Jill Shalvis or Larissa Ione and has acquired books by self-published bestsellers like Jessica Sorensen and J.A. Redmerski.
Forever’s founding editor Beth de Guzman had this comment in the release: “With the romance audience more robust and diverse than at any other time, we are thrilled to expand our program to match the insatiable demand in the marketplace for romance books in every format available.”
