I read this and thought there might be some authors (myself included) who might be interested in this information:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEJuno Books
, a publisher of fantasy that focuses on female protagonists, will be moving into mass market paperbacks this fall with four titles. "Up to now, we've been publishing attractive trade paperbacks," said editor Paula Guran. "We'll continue with a mix of trades and mass market. The latter gives us further market penetration and a chance to reach a broader audience with our books."
The first mass market titles will include, in September, Jamie Craig's CHASING SILVER, a steamy noir-ish futuristic/paranormal novel, and BLOOD MAGIC, a dark fantasy from debut author Matthew Cook. DANCING WITH WEREWOLVES, an urban fantasy from veteran author Carole Nelson Douglas follows in October. AMBERLIGHT, a literate fantasy by Australian author Sylvia Kelso will be published in November. Sequels for all four are anticipated in 2008.
Juno Books is distributed nationally through Diamond Book Distribution. For more information about Juno Books, visit www.juno-books.com

Interesting! I love their covers.
I did a little poking around and learned Juno is a new imprint of Wildside Press, a house that has been publishing sf/fantasy since the late 1980's. Juno requires electronic submissions, however they are not an epublisher. And they only release a very limited number of books a year.
But I'm intrigued.
For those authors with fantasy/paranormal books centering on a female protagonist, you might have an option here, since larger houses aren't buying what they'd label as paranormal "chick lit" these days. Happy submitting and good luck!
