From Shelf Awareness: HQN Books Relaunches as Canary Street Press
HarperCollins’s Harlequin Trade Publishing is relaunching and renaming its main romance imprint, HQN Books, as Canary Street Press. The change reflects in part the company’s goal of publishing “a greater variety of modern, commercial love stories.”
While remaining a romance imprint, Canary Street Press will publish more “inclusive stories that represent everyone’s happy ever after.” Canary Street Press will appear in trade paperback, hardcover and mass market formats.
Canary Street Press editorial director Susan Swinwood said, “The Canary Street Press name was inspired by the Canary District, an historic area in downtown Toronto that has undergone a renewal, and is an example of a modern, revitalized community with a rich heritage. Canary Street Press is expanding our editorial direction to celebrate romance for every reader looking to see themselves in a HEA.”
Harlequin Trade Publishing executive v-p and publisher Loriana Sacilotto commented: “Canary Street Press will be a destination imprint for romance of all kinds as we add new and fresh voices to our existing author list and continue our focus to bring new readers to the genre.”
