Interesting new move from Salt Publishing, well known British based publisher of poetry and short stories: they are diversifying by setting up an ebook imprint to focus on romance and erotica. Well, “sex sells” is the old adage, and — almost as old, it seems: “short stories don’t sell”. Embrace Books will take in lesbian fiction, paranormal titles and classic romance. Find out more over at ‘For Book’s Sake‘ where Embrace exec. editor Jane Holland is interviewed. Or visit the Embrace Books publisher site. Short fiction hacks out there, be warned: the minimum wordcount Embrace wants to see is 50k… so you’ll have to fluff out your short story by quite a way to get a look-in.
