Samhain Publishing Changes Direction

samhainOwner Christina Brashear has returned as publisher of the romance imprint Samhain Publishing.

Brashear’s return is part of the imprint’s redirection. In a move to keep the publishing house agile in a growing eBook world, Brashear has restructured the editorial team. The imprint’s current publisher Lindsey Faber is leaving her post and will only stay on in a consulting role. In addition, Heather Osborn will transition from Editorial Director to freelance editor.

“As part of this reorganization, Samhain will be returning to its roots of finding and publishing best-­‐selling romance writers. The careers of New York Times best-­‐selling authors like Maya Banks and Lorelei James started at Samhain nearly a decade ago,” stated Brashear. ”Now that I’m back at the helm, I’ll continue to nurture and support our current authors while looking to find that next generation of best-­‐selling writers to take their work to the next level and continue to do what Samhain does best.”
