Escape Publishing manager editor Kate Cuthbert talks about Harlequin Australia’s digital-first imprint.

Last week, Kate Cuthbert was kind enough to answer a few questions about Escape Publishing, the digital-first imprint of Harlequin Australia.

If you can’t see the video, click here to view it directly on YouTube. It runs for just over 3 minutes.

One of the most interesting things she told me—unfortunately, it was after I stopped taping, so it didn’t make it to this vodcast—was that although print runs may be a possibility in the future, she’s keen not to overemphasise this possibility. Cuthbert is keen to move away from the perception that digital is second class to print.

In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be posting short videos featuring Escape Publishing’s launch authors, so watch this space.

    Interesting to see that the number of releases each month will be so fluid.

    Yes, although I suspect they’ll eventually reach a point where the number will be a little more predictable.
