Mystery fans will be very excited to hear that there will soon be a new line of mysteries, thrillers and horror stories from the team at Literary Partners Group. Titled Ravenous Shadows, this new imprint is headed by John Skipp, the New York Times bestselling author and editor who has spent much of his career working in horror and fantasy.
The just-launched Ravenous Shadows line features e-books that are between 30,000 and 60,000 words long. They are also priced accordingly, and will cost readers between $3.99 and $6.99. Eventually the Skipp’s goal is to publish between thirty and forty stories each year.
Ravenous Shadows is Literary Partners second digital imprint. In 2008 Ravenous Romance, an erotica audio and e-book line, debuted to great success. This prompted the company to branch into other genres. CEO Holly Schmidt said in the press release about the move, “It was always our plan to expand our business model to other fiction genres, and when we had the opportunity to work with John Skipp, we decided to start with horror/mystery/thrillers … Skipp provided us with a clear vision and strong point of view for the line, and really is the heart and soul of Ravenous Shadows.”
