Harlequins's profits are up and their first foray into standard romantic ebooks has been doing so well, they are starting a new line called Spice Briefs.
Spice Briefs will feature erotic stories between 5,000 and 15,000 words. You can get them for 99 cents until August 15, but after that they'll be $2.99. Harlequin also plan to start releasing an ebook version of every book they're hard publishing.
Book Catcher has more info on what they are looking for in the Spicy shorts, straight from Spice Brief's editor Susan Swinwood. Harlequin also has an exclusively ebook line. It looks like an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new market. Romance author Sunny lists contact info for Susan Swinwood and other editors seeking submissions on her website.
