Samhain Publishing, the mostly digital romance publisher, has started a new fiction e-book line, Retro Romance, which brings back romances originally published in the 1970s, ‘80s, ‘90s, and early ‘00s. Publisher Christina Brashear said the imprint is a way for the publisher “to bring these romances to a new reading public."

Authors who own the digital rights to their romances published within the time frame can submit their works to Samhain, which will handle copyediting, formatting, jacket design, and digital distribution. Samhain employs a sliding royalty scale, and is offering its standard terms of 30% of list price for the first 2,500 copies sold, 35% of list for the next 2,500 copies sold, and 40% of list thereafter.
