Ladies and Gents, a Toast...

...to Omnific Publishing's new agreement with Simon & Schuster and its Gallery Books imprint:

Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books division has entered into a co-publishing agreement with Omnific Publishing in a deal that will see Gallery and Pocket Books co-publish a “select” number of titles with Omnific, while S&S will also take over all distribution.
Founded in 2009 in Los Angeles, Omnific is a romance publisher whose titles are aimed at the “modern sensibilities of today’s readers.” Areas it publishes in include contemporary, historical, paranormal, suspense, and erotic romance.
“Omnific have been innovators in both their editorial approach to romantic fiction, and in their publishing and business philosophy,” said Gallery president and publisher Louise Burke. “We have been greatly impressed with the high-quality and market success of many of their books, and look forward to a partnership that can take readership for their authors to new levels.”

  1. Interesting. Wonder if Simon and Schuster intends to buy them out eventually?

    1. I've been wondering that as well, Alex. This news really caught me by surprise, and I'm still not clear on how exactly it's going to play out even in the short run. Will be quite interesting to watch this unfold...hopefully all for the best.

  2. Yay! I'll join Jack Dawson on a toast any day. Here's to making it count!
