Red Sage Publishing?

Anyone know anything about them?

There's a post-RT blog post about what they're looking for:

I was asking around [at RT] for three things:
-- longer (over 40k, but especially 70-100k) stories for our e-books program,
-- M/M of any length for our e-books program, and
-- resumes for acquisitions editors. I need to hire some freelancers. Soon.

I poked around their site and couldn't find any m/m, but maybe I just missed it. Are they just late to the m/m party?

Anybody publish with them?

I find it odd that just when Ellora's Cave says they no longer actively seeking m/m, Samhain and now Red Sage are posting looking for it. Weird business is publishing, eh?

They are the publisher of the Secrets anthologies, one of the first experiment of ebooks, many years ago, even before Ellora's Cave. Authors like Emma Holly and Robin Schone published short stories in that anthologies. I stopped to buy from them when I started to read M/M, and didn't know they are thinking to publish them. It's a good news, according to me, since they are not big publishers, but with a good past history. Elisa

Thanks for the input. I didn't realize they'd been around that long.

I'm friends with Alexa Aames who published two stories for them in Volumes 14 and I think 23 or 24 of Secrets. I used to see their books in a lot of Borders, but I don't know if that's still the case. In general I think they were a little late to e-publishing. I remember Alexa thinking that Red Sage loved very dominant alpha males. Good for them for expanding to m/m. :)

Someone posted to the EREC blog (Jules?) who did much more effective poking around their site than me. Seeking m/m seems to be new to them.

We shall keep an eye on them. Perhaps all the #amazonfail stuff convinced them there's a market out there. Or perhaps they felt they could step in where Ellora's Cave was stepping out. Interesting.

Their website has certainly given me the impression in the past that they were deeply disinterested in receiving m/m submissions, but without the rudeness you get from people who actively disapprove of it. They haven't actually changed their submission guidelines, which makes me wonder how sudden/serious this alleged new interest is. OTOH, the reason I was looking at their guidelines in the past was that they seemed from the outside to be a sane and successful print small press, and the thing with at least one chain agreeing to shelve the new Perseus imprint alongside romance may have made them think it's now a market that fits their readership profile.

I don't write m/m myself, but I am published with Red Sage Publishing. They're a classy company. I'm published with Samhain and recently sold to Kensington as well. I can honestly say that I enjoy writing for all three publishers. In addition, Red Sage does have some impressive authors as well: Saskia Walker, Lisa Marie Rice, Emma Holly, Mary Janice Davidson, and more...

Hope that helps! :)
