International digital-first publisher of romance and horror increases outreach to meet reader and institutional demand, attending American Librarian’s Association conference in Chicago, Ill. (June 28-July 1)

Brothers of the Wild North Sea, by Harper Fox (Starred Review, Publishers Weekly)

"Reaction to our titles, especially at Book Expo America has been sustained and extremely positive," explains Lindsey Faber, publisher. "We are working with librarians nationwide now to ensure they are able to find the books they need for their readers."

International publisher Samhain Publishing® has brought original ebook fiction to readers since 2005, and was one of the earliest robust providers of digital-first romance—including erotic and GLBT romance. Once considered sub-genres with only niche appeal, the recent popularity of the erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey and similarly themed books has brought the full range of romance to the attention of readers everywhere… including library patrons. Faced with the challenge of finding well-written, well-edited romance for their readers in a new subgenre, librarians are turning to Samhain Publishing for assistance in increasing numbers.

"The reaction to our titles at Book Expo America (May, 2013) and in the weeks before and after has been sustained and extremely positive," explains Lindsey Faber, publisher, Samhain Publishing. "The most frequent comment we received is that librarians are looking for high quality romance across all genres—particularly in erotic and GLBT fiction. Given our bestselling titles and award-winning authors in these areas, we are well positioned to help. We are working with librarians nationwide now to ensure they are able to find the books they need for their readers."

Samhain Publishing will be touring the American Librarian’s Association annual meeting in Chicago, Illinois, June 28-July 1. Librarians interested in learning more about outreach programs, whether at the conference or ongoing with the publisher, may contact Amanda Brashear, COO, at abrashear(at)samhainpublishing(dot)com.
