UNSUITABLE: John R. Jacobson
UNSUITABLE #35: What Makes a Great Romance Novel?
A Conversation with John R. Jacobson
Join us on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, at noon EST for a conversation with Carina Press freelance editor John R. Jacobson. Carina Press is Harlequin’s digital-first adult fiction imprint and all their titles publish first in digital, with select releases also in audio and print. Since its inception as the first digital imprint within a traditional publishing house, Carina Press has been an industry leader, publishing a broad range of romance. Carina Press is committed to inclusion and representation in their publishing program. They are interested in working with authors from traditionally marginalized or underrepresented groups, including but not limited to Black authors, authors of color, disabled authors, and LGBTQIA+ authors. Their editors strive to make their list inclusive and work hard to build a catalog that is representative of the romance reading public.
