The Random House Publishing Group (my happy literary home!) just announced three new digital imprints to add to LOVESWEPT, their digital imprint for romance and women's fiction:
ALIBI, for mystery/suspense;
HYDRA, for sci-fi/fantasy; and
FLIRT, for "college-age New Adult" fiction
Their stated goal is to provide "affordable, accessible, and accomplished genre fiction," which they will publish more quickly and nimbly than traditional books.
Did I mention these are really lovely folks to work with?
These new Random House imprints are looking for short content (15,000 to 30,000 words) as well as full-length works, and are undertaking to respond to queries in 2-4 weeks. You can submit online, too, of course.
Good luck! - Meg
