ImaJinn Launches Line Aimed Toward The Paranormal Reader
Fans of paranormal romance frequently lament the decreasing numbers of titles being published in their favorite subgenre. It seems that an author of these books felt the same way. ImaJinn Books, a new publisher of New Age, or “Other Worldly” Romance will launch in October, 1999 with three titles which provide a representative sample of the types of books they will publish. Their launch month books are: A Love Through All Tim e by Jean Nash; Cupid: The Amorous Arrow by J.M. Jeffries; and Dreamsinger by J.A. Ferguson. Future releases include titles from favorite authors like Nancy Gideon.
ImaJinn (pronounced Imagine) Books was founded by Linda Kichline (a.k.a. Carin Rafferty), who wrote the witch and warlock trilogy Touch of Night, Touch of Magic, and Touch of Lightning for Topaz Books. An avid reader of New Age romance herself, Linda was disappointed to see the market for these books dwindling, and the mail she received from her readers indicated they were just as disappointed. Linda decided to start ImaJinn Books and specialize in this area of romance fiction to fulfill both her and her readers’ wishes for more New Age romance. When asked how she came up with the name ImaJinn, Linda said she wanted a name that was magical and would reflect the type of books she wanted to publish. If you break down the word ImaJinn, you come up with “I’m a Jinn.” She says genies are about as magical as you can get.
