DESTIN, FL, FEBRUARY 27, 2017 – Waterhouse Press Launches Misadventures, a Multi-Author Romance Series
Slotted to debut in November 2017, Misadventures is a romantic series comprised of standalone novels, each written or co-written by authors selectively chosen by Waterhouse’s founder, #1 New York Times bestselling romance author Meredith Wild, based on works she’s read and loved.
The series concept was originally inspired by a casual co-writing project that Wild undertook with an author friend—a low-pressure, high-steam romance that they could pen between their other more heavily plot-driven novels. “As authors, we work incredibly hard on our stories, and the process can be an intense and often stressful undertaking,” Wild says. “With Misadventures, ‘keep it fun’ is the driving philosophy. The resulting stories have been scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.”
Waterhouse is thrilled to announce some of the best names in romance contributing to the first wave of the Misadventures series. Among them will be New York Times bestseller Shayla Black, author of over fifty novels, including the Wicked Lovers series. “I have no doubt Waterhouse will bring the same passion and savvy to these books as they do to their other bestselling titles,” she says. Black’s first Waterhouse title, Misadventures of a Backup Bride, will release in the fall.
Also included in the series will be New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan, USA Today bestseller Lauren Rowe (Misadventures on the Night Shift), and USA Today bestseller Angel Payne (Misadventures with a Super Hero). Meredith Wild will also publish three novels that she’s co-written: Misadventures of a Good Wife, with #1 New York Times bestseller Helen Hardt; Misadventures of a City Girl, with USA Today bestseller Chelle Bliss; and Misadventures of a First Daughter, with Mia Michelle.
Waterhouse Press, founded by Meredith Wild in 2014, is an up-and-coming publisher making a big splash in the world of romance, publishing three #1 New York Times bestsellers in 2016. Waterhouse describes themselves as the “untraditional publisher,” committed to staying strategic and responsive to industry changes versus accepting the status quo. They choose stories and authors with care, and put their full marketing muscle behind those few.
As part of the ongoing series, subsequent Misadventures titles will begin releasing in Spring 2018.
