Happy Birthday Escape Publishing! (Giveaway)

Posted November 14, 2013 by Shari in Promo / 2 Comments



Hello Everyone!

Today, we’re celebrating a special milestone- an Anniversary Party if you will- with the awesome and talented people at Escape Publishing.  Escape Publishing is One Year Old today. *virtual confetti falls*  We’ve asked one of their peeps who was in on it all from the beginning to stop by and tell us about how Escape has grown. 

And best news of all!?!  I said this is a party, right?  What do parties usually have?  Prezzies!!!  Yes, we have a Giveaway Prize to share.  Read all the way through for the details about that.

Now extending a warm Delighted Reader welcome to Managing Editor, Kate Cuthbert.  Here’s what she had to say when asked to share about Escape’s eventful year:

Then and Now

Mathematically, one year is not that long a space of time, but anecdotally we all know that so much can change. Looking back on the year that was, our first for Escape, the latter has never seemed so true. So you might be curious to know what exactly is different between November of last year, and November 2013.

Luckily, here’s a handy dandy chart I prepared earlier:


Last year at this time

This year at this time

No one knew about Escape, and I couldn’t talk about it, and it was driving me nuts

I can’t shut up about Escape and everyone is begging me to please, for the love of God, just stop talking about Escape already!

We had five launch titles ready to go, ready for the launch on the 14th

We  are so proud to have almost 100 titles out and available for readers to enjoy

We had five launch authors, waiting in the wings

We have a community of over 70 ‘Escape Artists’, and we’re growing by the day

We wanted to establish an imprint that drew heavily from Australia for content, but were available globally

Our books are available across all platforms, including independent booksellers like Booktopia and All Romance E-Books

We wanted to listen to what readers want – and give it to them

We publish our books with no DRM or geographic restrictions, across all lengths and sensuality levels, and all sub-genres

We wanted to take chances and explore niche

Our SF romance titles are among our best-sellers, even though conventional wisdom said SF didn’t sell

We wanted to find romances that we loved, and give them a platform to be introduced to the world

I get to read romance every day – and get paid for it. Best job ever.


It seems like only yesterday that we were in the planning and preparation stages, and now we’re here, one year on, moving from ‘new’ to ’emerging’ and chasing ‘established’ the best way we know how – finding books that we love and believe in, and putting them out in to the world!

In case you’re interested, here are some of our best-sellers from our first year:

The Chieftain’s Curse by Frances Housden is a Scottish historical about a Chieftain under a terrible curse, a woman on the run, and an unconventional relationship that might just save them both.

The House on Burra Burra Lane by Jennie Jones is an Australian small-town rural romance about a woman desperate for a change of scene, a man who chooses to live among his ghosts, and one enormous pig.

Legend Among the Stars by SE Gilchrist is the debut in a sexy, smart, space opera series with an alien race of heroes to die for and the human women that earn their respect – and their hearts.

A Man Like Mike by Sami Lee is a coastal romance set in seaside Brisbane about a woman who doesn’t understand love, a man who doesn’t understand responsibility, and the baby who’s about to change everything.
