Does anyone know anything good or bad about Choclit? I only know what's on the website.
They seem to have quite a small number of authors, some previously unpubbed and some pubbed elsewhere. They are a print publisher and have obviously managed to get at least some of their books on the shelves of a major UK retailer (WH Smith). I think they look promising, but I'd be very interested to know if anyone has any direct experience of working with them.Established in 2008, Choc Lit is an independent publisher, specialising in quality women’s fiction with romantic content, where the writing clearly develops the hero’s point of view.
Not surprisingly, we believe that the enjoyment of a good read is enhanced by the taste of chocolate.
Our debut novel, The Importance of Being Emma by Juliet Archer, was short-listed for two awards including the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance 2009.
Our second title, Starting Over, reached number 3 in the Top 20 Small Publishers List. It was also the best selling book of its genre when it went on sale in WH Smith Travel, outselling top women authors. In November 2010 we had three novels in the Top 20 Small Publishers List, two reaching number 7.
