Life and fantasy, mythology and history can all meet in fiction
Macon, GA (PRWEB) October 30, 2009
November 1, 2009 marks the four-year anniversary of Samhain Publishing, the fastest-growing digital publisher of romance and genre eBooks on the web. The publishing house will celebrate the event by publishing their 1,000th title. That's an average of nearly 5 books published every single week!
How does Samhain manage such a prodigious publishing schedule? One reason is the company's commitment to digital publishing and eBooks, which are offered at reasonable prices when compared to traditional paperbacks that much be manufactured, shipped, and stored. Samhain eBooks are also available in a variety of formats, including Mobipocket, Microsoft Reader, PDF, and HTML. Although Samhain is primarily a digital publisher, over seven hundred titles are also available in trade paperback.
Another reason for the company's continued growth is Samhain's mission to feed the appetites of the most ravenous readers.
"Life and fantasy, mythology and history can all meet in fiction," says Christina Brashear, founder of Samhain Publishing. "And when you add in the spice of romance, love, and sex, the reader is transported to wherever their deepest emotions and most amazing fantasies carry them."
Samhain's catalog of books contains many genres such as contemporary, historical, paranormal, and gay-lesbian romance. During the course of their four-year run, the Samhain staff has had a front-row seat for many of the trends in the romance business and responds quickly to meet the readers' needs.
"No matter what 'trend' might be at the moment, Samhain has a variety of excellent stories from a wide range of genres. No matter what preference, readers can always find something to suit their taste," says Maya Banks, author.
Samhain Publishing has garnered numerous awards including IReadRomance.com's Ariadne for Best Publisher 2008, the All Romance eBooks Best Publisher for 2007, Preditors and Editors Best Publisher Award for 2006 and a handful of others.
