Salt Publishing

I was interested to read on The Literary Project earlier today that Salt Publishing are planning to start a new imprint for romances. It's to be edited by poet and author Jane Holland whose mother and sister were both romance writers, so we can assume she knows what she's doing!

But Salt, like so many other independent small publishers, struggles to keep going. Last year (or was it the year before?) they launched the Just One Book initiative, asking everyone who wishes to see small publishers survive to buy just one book from them. Ideally direct from the publisher. Since then, I've made a point of buying books from small publishers and have read some gems (see my brief reviews on my books blog).

This year, Salt are 10 years old and still feeling the pinch of the recession. So they've launched the Just One More Book initiative. If you care, buy a book and pass the message on. Especially if you've a romance novel tucked away in a drawer that you are thinking of submitting to them some day...

Salt tweeted about this, yesterday I think. Just wish I was a romance writer, lol! x
