Kensington Publishing Corp had added two new sub-imprints to the digital-first line it acquired in 2014, Lyrical Press. Lyrical Shine will focus on contemporary romance, while Lyrical Underground will include thriller, mystery, and horror titles.

“When Kensington brought Lyrical into our community of imprints, we were excited to work with a new group of authors and expand our footprint in the digital publishing community," said Alexandra Nicolajsen, associate director, social media and digital sales. "

Nicolajsen added, "The new Lyrical Shine and Underground imprints represent our commitment to diversifying the Lyrical list. Most importantly they create a program that will distinguish our authors and bring the most original stories to our readers.”

The publisher said that, currently, Lyrical Press, Lyrical Shine and Lyrical Underground are looking to acquire "innovative new fiction in all romance genres (especially suspense and stories with unique settings), compelling psychological fiction and thrillers, women’s fiction, YA, new adult, and cozy mysteries."
