About UsCarina Press is Harlequin’s digital-first adult fiction imprint, publishing first in digital, with releases in audio and print as well. We offer royalty rates competitive with other digital publishers, offer authors consultation on cover art, back cover copy, and titles, and provide incomparable editorial support.
Our mission is to connect readers with authors who write the stories they want to read, and the stories they want to talk about and recommend. Carina Press publishes books from talented authors in all subgenres of romance, including contemporary, paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, and more. We welcome romances of all heat levels, featuring couples (or multiples) from all walks of life. We also publish mysteries of all flavors—from cozies to thrillers—both with and without romantic elements. We strive to create romance and mystery lists comprised of stories written by, for and about people from diverse backgrounds and of all genders and sexual identities. We want many voices to be reflected in the books we publish, and hope all authors will consider making Carina Press their publisher of choice.
