Flanker Press is pleased to announce that the company has signed USA Today bestselling author Victoria Barbour to a six-book deal.
Flanker Press plans to publish Victoria’s ebooks as six paperbacks. The first four books – Against Her Rules, Hard as Ice, Play Me, and 21st Century Rake – are part of the Heart’s Ease series and will be published in 2016. Flanker Press will also publish Forever Geek (a compilation of Geek God, Geek Groom, and the yet-to-be-released Geek Dad) and Alpha Wars: Clan Faoladh (written under the pen name Hannah Hunter and currently being released over a series of short stories).
“We’re really excited to sign Victoria Barbour,” says Garry Cranford, president of Flanker Press. “She has reached a tremendous number of readers with her digital books and we’re looking forward to reaching even more with the paperbacks. Flanker Press has not published romance before, so this is an exciting new project for us!”
Flanker Press began as a self-publishing venture in St. John’s in 1994 with the release of Garry Cranford’s book, Newfoundland Schooner Norma & Gladys: Her Story of Industry, Mutiny & Triumph. Now located in Paradise, the company has eight full-time employees and has published over two hundred books, including many award winners and bestsellers. Last year Flanker Press celebrated twenty years of publishing quality books in Newfoundland and Labrador.
