HarperCollins and Harlequin

Interesting news emerged on Friday–HarperCollins is acquiring Harlequin from Torstar. My two-book deal is with the Harper Voyager imprint. I have no idea if this will impact me, but it seems inevitable that some restructuring will occur. Both publishers have romance lines and they also have imprints that focus on urban fantasy/speculative fiction (Luna from Harlequin, and Voyager for HarperCollins). It will be a matter of waiting and seeing what happens.

One thing that is clear–the name combinations aren’t as funny as the ones that resulted from the Random House and Penguin merger last year. Random Penguin/Penguin House, etc. Though HarleCollins doesn’t have a bad ring to it…
