Virgin Is NOT Shuttering Its Erotica
Update per commenter:
Black Lace is still going strong . . . the Black Lace site is being revamped now. Virgin’s erotica imprints are now owned by Random House, which might have something to do with the sites not being online at the moment.
Superlibrarian Wendy noticed that the Black Lace website has been “Temporarily Unavailable” for over a week now. The Cheek site isn’t even a valid url anymore. Virgin has been making several changes lately including ending its Virgin Comics line that was established in 2006 and ceasing to accept new submissions for its Virgin Cheek Line.
I noticed that all of the releases for 2008 by Virgin Black Lace have been special anniversary editions to celebrate 15 years of publishing. I don’t know whether these books were reprints or whether they were new publications.
