Pitcharama: Getting to know Escape Publishing

Today we speak to Kate Cuthbert, Managing Editor of Escape Publishing, a Harlequin Books imprint.

Tell us what makes Escape Publishing unique.

We’re a small digital first publisher with the backing of the biggest name in romance. We’re small enough to be flexible and adaptable, but with the resources of 100 years of experience and research in giving readers what they want.

What’s on your current wish list?

Romantic suspense, erotic romance, contemporary romance, Aussie-set romance.

Is there something for you that’s a big query no-no?

Not paying attention to our parameters. We’re a romance publisher – we only publish stories with a strong romance and a happy ending.

When you read a query, what are you hoping to see?

Understanding of the romance genre, and the willingness to test those boundaries, see what is out there, play with the rules – while still giving readers the emotional uplift they crave.

What author would you love to publish?
