Harlequin broadens its Horizons by adding vanity publishing

Harlequin’s decision to partner with Author Solutions to provide a vanity publishing division for romance writers has created intense debate across the internet. While this blog will remain neutral from the debate, you can follow the discussions at the links below.

A Message From Your Exec

RWA are aware of members’ concerns re Harlequin’s new vanity publishing venture. While RWAmerica has acted quickly and decisively according to their bylaws RWAust doesn’t have a recognized/eligible publisher criteria but please be assured we are monitoring the situation. Our advice to members seeking publication remains the same  — read and research widely, ask questions, never sign anything you don’t understand completely.
