TORQUERE PRESS ANNOUNCES EXCITING CHANGES FOR 2015
(November 28, 2014) Torquere Press is preparing for big but exciting changes coming in the New Year.
Torquere Press, a royalty paying, full-service publisher of gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual romance, began in 2003. The oldest ebook publisher for the GLBT community, Torquere has published several best-selling authors such as Sean Michael, Julia Talbot, Chris Owen, BA Tortuga, and Kiernan Kelly.
Torquere publishes every genre of romance, from paranormal to western to sci-fi, as long as the main characters are GLBT. They have also expanded with Prizm, the first YA GLBT publisher and a subsidiary of Torquere Press, which began in 2008 and targets a young and new adult audience.
As of January 1st, 2015 there will be:
- Updated Ownership and Company Officers
- New Marketing Strategies and Ideas
- Increase of Social Media Presence
- Updated Submission Calls
- The Exploration and Addition of New Genres
- Continuing Success With Current Authors
- Expanding New Author Submissions
- Positive Steps Towards the Growing Demand for Romance
We are really excited for all of the positive changes headed in Torquere Press’s direction, and look forward to expanding and growing on this journey with all of you. We thank you for your years of support, and your encouragement towards all of the new exciting things that the future will bring!
Next year marks the beginning of a brand new con. At Reading Until Dawn, we won’t be sitting on panels or workshops. Instead, we’ll be hanging out with our favorite authors/bloggers/readers, playing games, talking books, building pillowforts (yes, we will have a legit pillow fort in the ball room!) and having a great time.
Here’s the best news: REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! Early bird registration is $75 and will close on November 15th. After that, it’ll be $85.
