Penguin to Provide Imprint Focus Blog Posts

Penguin’s blog is going to do a series of Imprint focuses blog posts starting with Ace/Roc. The Penguinnext four weeks on the Penguin blog will be dedicated to showcasing the Roc/Ace imprints. In addition to introductions to the editors and authors, exclusive information on the books and the publishing process will be posted. I love these types of posts and ran a series of them on the blog here but an in depth look at a publisher’s vision can be quite interesting.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Roc’s my publisher. Anyhow, if you want to post the details, this is the schedule they gave me:

    Week 1: General introduction to the Imprint (a brief history, list of key authors), the Imprint's staff. Today we're going to post introductions to Ginjer Buchanan and Susan Allison, on Thursday we're going to post intro's to the Associate Editors (Anne Sowards and Jessica Wade), and on Friday we're going to post intro's to the Editorial Assistants (Danielle Stockely and Cameron Dufty).

    Week 2: Interviews with the Imprint's staff. For R&A we're running an interview with the Editor-in-Chief Ginjer Buchanan, with Tina Anderson from Publicity, and an interview in which each of the Assistants interview each other.

    Week 3: Survey of previously published great books that have defined the character of the Imprint, current big name authors and a review of up and coming stars. Also an opportunity for authors to post updates as to what they're currently working on.

    Week 4: Guest blogger will write week-in-the-life style posts. The R&A guest blogger will be Jessica Wade
