A Who’s Who of Publishers

Sitting in a workshop last week, listening to a panel of Kensington editors, one of them commented (I believe it was Audrey LeFehr, but it might have been Alicia Condon) that she was surprised by how many aspiring authors come to the conferences without doing even the slightest research about publishers.  Those bright eyed hopefuls (us) are trying to sell our books (of course!), but they (okay, we) sometimes have NO IDEA who these editors are, or even who Kensington is.  There are oodles of publisher spotlights at the National conference designed to inform authors of just this, but we’re talking about the most basic primer.  So that’s the goal of today’s post.  A VERY basic (and by no means complete) look at the publishing houses that handle romance.  This can serve as starting point.  A simple frame of reference, so when you’re chatting with Alicia Condon and she says she is a Kensington editor, you don’t give her a blank stare.

And please, if you have corrections or additions (or questions), feel free to add them in the comments.

If you are a member of RWA, you can also refer to their member’s only publisher information.  And Brenda Hiatt’s Show Me the Money site is also a good reference point for a ballpark estimate of what romance authors are making at various houses.

Holding Out: Why the GH is One Factor in My Decision Not to E-Publish

I’ve been on my road to writing’s Emerald City for a decade now.  Every so often I’m presented with a tantalizing morsel of temptation: publication.  But wait, you say.  Isn’t that your goal?  Not so fast.
