At BEA this weekend Kensington announced the creation of a new romance imprint, in conjunction with epublisher Samhain. The new imprint (yet to be named) will publish one to two books a month. Details are still hazy, but the following are known:
Samhain will be responsible for the acquisition and editing of the line's books.
For the first several releases, best selling titles and books by established authors will be selected for the line.
For the most part, full length novels will be selected.
Kensington will print, market and distribute the books just like their other lines.
Books will be released in trade and mass market paper.
Authors will be paid directly from Kensington.

This is very exciting news for the Samhain owner, staff and authors. And I see this as a huge step toward cooperative business between small/epubs and larger houses.
